A New EPL season

August 11, 2008 |

I know soccer is a minor sport in Baltimore but for those of us who follow the EPL we are less than a week away from the start of another season. I want to know who will win the title. Who will be relegated? Can anyone stop the big four? Any other predictions that you want to make.

It looks like Chelsea will be loaded as usual and they still aren’t done. They are still linked with Robinho and Kaka. Meanwhile at Old Trafford Sir Alex still wants anither striker. Could Thierry Henry actually play for United after many years at Arsenal? Will Ronaldo be himself after ankle surgery and a summer transfer saga?

How will Robbie Keane and Fernando Torres work together at Anfield? Will Hull, West Brom, and Stoke be able to stay up for more than one season? Can another team crack the big four’s stranglehold on the top 4 places?

I like United to win their third straight title. It will probably go down to the wire again. United’s last game is at Hull City which could be fighting to stay up so both teams could need the 3 points badly. I like West Brom to stay up with Hull, Stoke, and either Fullham or Wigan to make the drop. The top 4 will finish in the same order they did last season.

What do you think of my picks? Do you agree or disagree? Please give me your thoughts on the new EPL season.
