Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

3 horse race next year for the title next year between City, Utd and Chelsea IMO. Could be a big gap between 3rd and 4th next season too.

We will probably take the fourth spot hopefully. Expecting Liverpool to have a better season and potentially challenge for 4th. Depending on how the remainder of the summer pans out for the Spurs i.e. bringing in a decent manager and holding on to key players, think they will be in the mix for 4th too. And Newcastle of course.

I expect us to keep treading water in the C/L spots until our debt is cleared. Hopefully though we will have a decent run in the C/L next season.

Chelsea still need a few pieces before we can call them challengers.

Yes but you will probably get them. I dont think Chelsea are finished for the summer, far from it in fact.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

Indeed

we need more. The loss of drogba and everyone getting older, not to mention our depth running thin may end up hurting us

We're not finished, but I don't think the club are going to strengthen where it's needed. Instead of looking at the centre of midfield, we're looking at Hulk and Moses. And we still trust Torres, which will prove costly.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

I think the biggest thing is a central midfielder. I think we can still challenge without a DM (putting faith in Obi Mikel WTF) Also can't feel too great having Torres w/o Drogba. Lukaku probably out on loan, so Sturridge centrally is the only cover? Idk if the defense will be alright all season long. But if Cahill can keep playing well, and Luiz keeps improving maybe we will be able to graze by . Fuck it we need MOAR SIGNINGS!

Not our fault you couldn't beat Man City!

Had I not been so devoutly against City winning the title though, I'd have been made up with the part we played in costing you it

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

Id rather us focus on defence than attack. We need more central power

Repeat of the 2004/2005 season would be nice. We had the highest number of points in premier league history that season and we didnt even have a big time striker

Best offence is a great defence I say. Create a tighter wall for the back four and just get the damn ball to Mata and Hazard and let them do the rest

Also, i look back, I think Sturridge has what it takes. I mean sure he also had a rough patch, but I think we forget how good FOCAL POINT was at the start of the season, banging in crucial goals

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

I have faith in Sturridge. He's not a winger, so it was bound to catch up with him. Once he lost confidence that was it. But hopefully chances come to him in the form of central striker.

Re: 2012-13 English Premier League Thread

24 Mill from Juve for the "Lets buy Falcao fund" wouldnt be half bad either......

I know opinions in football can change in an instant, but I really think Sturridge has immense potential. I mean he practically carried us with mata at the start. He was bold, daring, not afraid to take 3 defenders on. Gave us a good edge. Hell, I kinda wish he woulda got selected for the euro over welbeck to see what he can do

Its probably biased, but I woulda taken Sturridge over Welbeck. I understand its about form and attitude and Welbeck's linkup with rooney and Young, but honestly, I really think he has something. Pure out and out striker. Fast, technical, bold, and a pretty decent shot.
