So 12 of the 35 pundits think we won't win the league. Further proof, if proof be need be, that the media hates us. I think we should start a new thread.

I don't listen to TalkSh*te.

Oi! Don't slag of TalkSport. It is one of the finest broadcasting insitutions in the country. Getting back to the predictions that the pundits have made are quite frankly boring. Below is what I personally think the top Seven will be come the end of the season:

1. Manchester United

2. Manchester City

3. Arsenal

4. Chelsea

5. Liverpool

6. Tottenham

7. Everton

I honestly believe that if Carlo does not sign a quality and experienced centre halve we will struggle, especially during the winter period of the season.

What is the point of a youth academy - which we have heavily invested in - if we never TRUST the products?

View it like this if you like ... Chelsea sign new Dutch International Defender: Hot defensive prospect Jeffrey Bruma today signed for DOUBLE WINNERS Chelsea....

How are meant to become experienced if we never play them?

we're all entitled to our opinion. but i have to say i think you're being unduly pessimistic and that your predictions are way off.

We have 3 of the best CBs in the league, best LB in the world, one of the best RBs in the league, and a stable of very promising youths including a international from a team who just placed 2nd in the WC....Who has a better defencive core than us in the EPL?

Considering Bosingwa will be like a brand new signing and allow Ivan to play in CB, and we just signed a Brazil international holding mid to cover our back 4 plus getting back the beast Essien who is also immense in covering the back 4..... I think your making mountains out of mole hills!

I wouldnt switch our defence for any other teams in this league, and most likely even in the world.
