United need a striker like Adriano or Defoe and a world class midfielder to compete for the title, but they'll still be the second best team with Scholes, Solskjaer and Smith coming back in. Carrick's a good signing, though way overpriced. If they do get Hargreaves he'll be immense for them, the way he ran the game against Portugal ws better then Keane at his best.
Liverpool should get third, and Kewell could well be the best player in the Prem this season if he avoids injury. Kewell, Sissoko, Alonso and Gerrard. Thats a hell of a midfield
Not sure about Bellamy and Fowler up front. Could be fantastic, could be a nightmare, could, lets face it, be in jail.
Arsenal are going to be really good in a couple of seasons if they can hold onto Fabregas, Van Persie and the other youngsters but this year they'll be totally dependant on Henry, and he's not quite good enough to win the league by himself. Rosicky is CLASS, I always sign him in management games, but him and Henry apart, if Reyes goes then the rest of the squad is average. I think Spurs will beat them to fourth.
Tottenham will be great to watch, Berbatov will be up there with Henry and Shevchenko for top scorer, and with him, Keane and Defoe Spurs have the best set of fowards in the Prem. They'll miss Carrick, but Zokora's steel in midfield will probably make him a more important player for them.. it's not like Spurs are short of flair. Fourth, and maybe a cup.
So yeah. Chelsea to win the league, the mighty Fulham to finish 16th. Then Coleman will discover oil in his back garden, we'll buy everyone and turn Stamford Bridge into a toilet.
