Some of you may know that the Premier League is just around the corner, while the rest of you are probably thinking "What the hell is the Premier League?"

Well first off let me explain what the Premier League is.

The Premier League is a corporation in which the 20 member clubs act as shareholders. Seasons run from August to May. Teams play 38 matches each (playing each team in the league twice, home and away), totalling 380 matches in the season. Most games are played on Saturday and Sunday afternoons; others during weekday evenings. It is colloquially known as the Premiership and outside the UK it is commonly referred to as the English Premier League (EPL).

The 20 clubs in the Premiership this season are as followed:

  • Arsenal
  • AFC Bournemouth
  • Brighton & Hove Albion
  • Burnley
  • Cardiff City
  • Chelsea
  • Crystal Palace
  • Everton
  • Fullham
  • Huddersfield Town
  • Leicester City
  • Liverpool
  • Manchester City*
  • Manchester United
  • Newcastle United
  • Southampton
  • Tottenham Hotspurs
  • Watford
  • West Ham United
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers

Oh so you're back on this account Ragnar. I'm just going to go with Spurs because this is the least excited I've ever been for a premier league season.

United aren't much of a threat even if they do have a good squad, at-least not under Jose. Chelsea's midfield is looking solid. Kante, Jorgihno and most recently Kovacic. If they manage to keep Hazard and Willian, under Sarri they could be title contenders. City are obvious contenders given that they're the best team in England currently. Liverpool can be contenders but given how they always slip up (pun intended) at crucial moments, they probably wont. Spurs won't win but they could guarantee a top 4. Not sure about Arsenal tho, Emery is a questionable coach and they could suffer from the same problems United did when they replaced a long term manager.

Still sad that Villa aren't in the league, I've supported them since I was seven, my Grandfather basically made me lol and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I´m still not confident on our strikers.

And I think we should´ve gone for a RW

I hope we can get Kovacic tho.

@citizensurfer: I don’t actually know tbh. I can see a title this year, at the very least a final (again), but it really just depends on the form of the team with a few fresh faces an how they pull together. I don’t think we’ll recover from a shakey start but if we hit the ground running u can’t say Liverpool aren’t a scary team to face (especially as a City fan)

@citizensurfer: How do you feel about City this year?

I feel like we won't be as good as we were last year, since the league adapts and managers make improvements to their teams to better defend against opposition teams, I also feel like the loss of De Bruyne will hit hard over the next 3 months, I feel as though we're still in for a shout of the title but I feel as though this year is Liverpool's to lose.

City to win it.... oh wait we're talking about the heteronormative patriarchial monument to toxic masculinity and consumerism that is the Men's Premier League

Pray don't mind me if I'd much rather support the non diving, non fouling, non bloated garish money machine sell out overrated version

Football is the beautiful game and I'd much rather watch the ladies play the fair game as it is meant to be played instead of the sell outs catering to the Asian /African Market with unaffordable ticket prices

He's had a meltdown ever since he's been at United ain't he?

Well, he won the UEL in 16-17 and in 17-18 he got 2nd behind on of the best sides of recent times. So he hasn´t been all that bad.

imo
