No point starting another thread so its time for my annual pilgrimage into the land of predictions. Remember this is the cybertosis thread and after our 3 loss to Stoke on the bounce its another season where odd things may happen.So if you are interested in my musings here is what I think for 2020/21. Remember I did call Bournemouth and Norwich last year before a ball was kicked and Brighton wasn't far away.
The league will be again divided into three. Top six, middle ,six bottom eight.
Top Six is the big six. All have made improvements in personnel . Chelsea are the dark horses to challenge City and Liverpool with Arsenal close behind. Spurs with Bale should compete with United for 5th. It will be closer I think this year. The top four separated by a maximum of 10 points so its game on until the end of the season for the title for me. Chelsea or Arsenal to win it? You would get good odds so if you like a flutter stick a tenner on either. Its better value than Liverpool or City. I expect us to average a point a game against the big six.
Middle six teams
Everton Leicester Newcastle Southampton Leeds and us. Everton have bought well. Newcastle are more solid under Bruce and should score more . Three points for a win will help Leeds who will concede a few and lose plenty but will win enough too to finish top 12. We need to average 1.5 points per game from these so 15 points from 10 games.
West Ham , Brighton, Villa ,Sheffield united , Palace Fulham,Burnley, West Brom. I think WBA Palace and Fulham will struggle badly but Burnley and Sheffield both have limited squads.I would expect us to average two points per game against these so 32 points.
So the teams we might have a banana skin moment would be Fulham Burnley and either of our local rivals Villa or WBA. We are so due a win over Brighton I think that will happen this season.
So around 55 to 60 points is hoped.
Bottom five Palace WBA Burnley Fulham Sheff united.
I really do feel some people take this thread far too seriously, its all tongue in cheek and a bit of light hearted fun surely? If anyone 'hates' it, not sure why they bother clicking on it and commenting
Exactly. It’s a bit of a punt on what could happen that’s not odds on so if you feel like taking a punt you MAY make a few quid at the bookies and I can stand on one leg and worry whenever the number 13 is in play . Enjoy it for what it is but don’t take it to heart
