What's that, you say? We aren't even IN the Champions League this year? My goodness, you're right! Let me amend my statement: Liverpool will take a Champions League spot this year.
That means a top four finish; but I'll do you one better and say we finish third. United are of course the team to beat, but Chelsea are fading and I don't buy Arsenal's chances, considering half their stars want out.
That leaves Manchester City as the other possibility to finish ahead of us. I don't think they will, personally. I think it's about time someone told Mancini, "No," and I think we're going to be the ones to do it.
That said, one of those three teams will pull out a half-decent season and probably top us. But from out of Europe completely to third isn't too shabby, is it?
So here's to the new season, new hopes and dreams, and, more likely, new disappointments. Let's raise a glass to King Kenny and hope things fall our way!
