I should probably wait until the transfer deadline has passed but the season is already exciting and a few results have led me to think differently on what will happen. The main talking point from day one has been Gareth Bale and it now looks like he is finally on his way for £86m. That fee is a joke but it is not my money and who really cares about how much they spend. It is like monopoly money after all, unless you are a Glasgow Rangers or Coventry City fan. Oops!
One real reason I am writing this is because of Tottenham Hotspurs. They have got some great players in their team and I think the main factor in them doing well is their manager. Villas- Boas is young but he is a young manager who knows how to win. The signings he has made this season and last I believe will mean that they can easily move on without Bale. I don't think they can win the league but I can see them challenging and for this reason I see Arsenal struggling to make fourth.
As well as this, although still early days, I can now see Chelsea winning the league. The purchase of Eto'o is a clever and amazing buy. He was one of the best players at Barcelona and is a proven winner and goal scorer. This coupled with the uncertainty at Man City and Man Utd, means that Chelsea will win. The tactics they displayed the other night at Old Trafford showed that Mourinho is aware of what is needed and when.
So after two games, Liverpool are second. I would take that now but I can also get greedy and want the top spot too. Strangely enough for this weekend, I can see Liverpool and Utd drawing the game whereas Arsenal will beat Spurs too. I say this as it is a home game and the history is on their side too.
Still a long way to go. Wait until next week for more changes in my predictions.
