    If you could predict one big story from this season, what would it be?

    It doesn't have to be United, it could be anything within the top flight: managers coming and going, the rise to prominence of a hitherto unappreciated player, the unexpected fall from grace of a major star, etc.

    This can be something you can quote yourself from at the end of the season and say "HA! Friggin' told you!"

    For me, I really think Ryan Sessegnon will light the league up. If he's not already widely known, he'll be a household name by the end of the season.

    I think Arsenal are going to surprise the big teams this season. I can’t say for certain how their league campaign will go as a whole, but I think they’re going to be much better against the big teams than they have been in the last few years under Wenger.

    Salah could reach 30 league goals.

    I’ve defended Adama Traore on here a few times in the past, despite some of his glaring issues. He matured greatly in the second half of last season, and while I think he could have done with staying put for one more season, if his move to Wolves goes ahead I think he’ll be a success.

    1) Sarri's Chelsea will light up the league.
    2) Real Madrid will struggle this season, 3rd in the league, out in the QF-s of the UCL.

    Liverpool are going to struggle for chemistry and with their larger squad, dissent will bubble.

    United to be accused of treating Pogba like a slave, almost 10 years since Ronaldo was a slave.

    I've got a friend (neither a Liverpool or United fan) who thinks they'll shine super brightly up until Christmas where they'll fizzle out and fight for a top 4 place. Don't see it personally.

    I'm predicting it based on Liverpool's ethos being riding the underdog wave.
    The pressure (without a homegrown couple of superstars) may weigh too heavily on the players. Compounded by a lot of upheaval in the middle of the park and the fight for places. Shaqiri is a complicated character too.
    Just a sense of things.

    Dalot will break into the side quickly and be a bigger signing for us than Fred. We will be City's closest challengers and it will be a two horse race.

    Liverpool will win the league. Its our year. Err...I'm sure I've been on this joyride before. Sod it, I'm all in. We have the bestest squad in all the land and it really is our year.

    For the sardonically imparied, that's sarcasm. I think we'll finish 2nd and win the FA Cup.
