12th with Koeman to walk before the end of the season after feeling like heīs been sold a dudd. After 3 poor seasons in a row could be in a difficult position and canīt expect any of our top performers to stay - in such a competitive market and without european football gonna be very difficult to attract top names. Walsh could prove to be our saviour.

Arenīt i Mr. Positive for the future... The delay in sacking Martinez combined with no-one lined up and not getting Koeman until after the euros had started has left us playing catch-up. I fully accept that this is a transitional period but i fear that after (potentially) 3 bad years in a row the re-build could prove to be a lot bigger than we may had imagined.

Considering the number of flaws we have seen in the side during Pre-season and the feeling of a lack of preparation (I think so, anyway!) ahead of the upcoming season then we can expect a struggle to begin with. Hopefully as the season goes on we can recover and finish around 8th or 9th and have a decent go at the FA Cup which would be an adequate season in my eyes.

If you look at the potential landscape of the Premier League next season then it's likely to be the preferred Sky 6 of Man City, Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool who finish in those places whilst West Ham and Leicester are in a much better place than us as well so I don't expect anything special coming this season.

Who knows though? If Koeman can sort us out defensively then we have players like Deulofeu, Lukaku, Mirallas and Barkley who are all capable of that moment of brilliance so with the right balance, we could win a lot of tight matches this season.

I think Stones will go and Lukaku will stay.

I am feeling a tad more optimistic than some about our squad. Martinez lost the players around the new year IMO and with the players currently in the squad we should see an improvement on the performances of the second half of last season.

PL Winners Man United
2nd City
3rd Arsenal
4th Liverpool

Chelsea, Leicester, West Ham, Spurs fighting for EL places

I hope that Koeman sorts us out defensively whilst giving Mirallas, Lukaku, Deulofeu and Barkley the freedom to express themselves. I reckon somewhere between 8th and 10th for us as it stands.

Hull, Swansea and Burnley to be relegated.

Think we'll struggle with the squad we have at the moment, need a few in anyway & still think one or both of Lukaku and Stones will go, so they will need replacing with like for like quality (if this is possible). Prediction at the moment 10th-12th. With 4 new signings (or 5 or 6 depending on Lukaku & Stones) we can finish top 6.

It's will be another underwhelming season.

The defence will improve, but that will be countered with a decrease in goals as the front four all flatter to deceive again and we rely heavily on Lukaku.

Lennon and McCarthy will be the victims of the Koeman era and will find game time difficult.

Holgate and Davies will breakthrough, with dowell struggling and getting sent on loan.

Seamus Coleman will reclaim his place as the best right back in the league.

Baines will continue to underperform as age and injuries catch up with him.

And we'll crash out both trophies early doors.

City to win it with Lpool 2nd and between Arsenal, Utd and Chelsea fighting for 3rd and 4th.
I think Us and Spurs will be fighting for 6th and 7th.

Leicester to finish mid table.

Watford, Burnley and Swansea for the drop.

I reckon Bournemoth will do very well this season.

West Ham 6th

Top 4 will be:

1 Man Utd
2 Liverpool
3 Man City
4 Chelsea

Arsenal, Spurs, West Ham finish in europa league places.

A transitional season for Everton. Possibly bedding in new players and new system meaning 8th/9th place finish above Stoke and Southampton and maybe Leicester.

Watford,Burnley and Hull to be relegated.

I'd be pleased enough with a top 8 for now but top 10 is a must. It's a very competitive league now, more so than ever but we will be well organised and tough to beat so with a bit of luck, good form and good fitness we can go with what we have and do ok.
I think we'll make at least 3 signings before the window shuts so could be even better.
Try not to be too negative at this stage. This is the part of the season we can be optimistic! Let it come crashing down later not yet!

League finish: 8th
League Cup: 3rd Round
FA Cup: 4th Round

Lukaku to stay and sign new deal, Stones to go a few days before the window shuts and deadline day to be one frantic 24-hour period of "Just buy anyone!"

7th.

Shit in both cups.

Mirallas to be player of the season.

Important season. It's like the league is really sectioning off between top half and bottom half. Important we're on the right side of it

I fancy us to come good and get 6th.

Worried personally, not seen a great deal of encouraging signs so far.

1. City
2. Spurs
3. Shite
4. Arsenal
5. Utd
6. Chelsea
7. Leicester
8. West Ham
....
10. Everton

a boring season of lumping the ball up to lukaku and watching it bounce off him.

Ross finds himself out of favour and does not kick on at all.

Deulofeu plays well in the cups and against west brom et al. But when the Derby comes round he totally wets the bed and misses a sitter.

Holgate and Davies both regularly on the bench, agree with Ram that Dowell will probably go out on loan.

Gueye tackles everything on the pitch for the first half of the season and then totally fades away.

Stekelenburg is our number 1.

Stones sold to city before Spurs.

Williams comes in and does well.
