Oh there it comes. Another Premiership season ahead. A season that comes with an aura of excitement after some hectic transfer market action, which brought massive changes to team lineups and perspectives.
I could write and write on the topic, but I found out that as much as I would like to delve endlessly into every single team's perpectives, I'd rather keep it simple and then just justify my predictions.
First thing I'd like is to split the teams into some distinguishable groups.
Uefa Cup sure, CL possible: good squads + great managers = nice football, but no title challenge
Uefa Cup contenders: good end of last season, cohesive squad under competent coach, may have good runs in FA/Carling Cup too
Uefa Cup hopefuls: question mark coaches, question mark player gel, whatever can happen
Relegation fighters: look depleted from last season
New boys in town: might scrape their stay, but will probably go down
My personal guess for the end of the championship - with some of bias of course.

8. Aston Villa
