The Premier League has a lot to live up to.
Last year, drama continued to flow until the final minutes, in a season that will be forever remembered for Sergio Aguero's title-winning goal. It's something none of us predicted.
Looking forward to the 2012-13 season, it's time to start anticipating what we'll be treated to. This year, nothing should be taken for granted. City rivalries will flip as the powerful lose their muscle, high-profile meltdowns will continue to happen, and managers will fear every phone call from their club's chairman.
It's a bold statement, but this is the year that everything changes.
