Generally, from the look of the teams from the last season of which not much changes are made to Man City, Us, Chelsea and none for Spurs - only Liverpool is a team that brought in a goal keeper, 2 midfielders and a Stoke class Swiss Striker ( that appeared to have strengthened ). Arsenal on the other hand had a new handful of replacements - the majority of which are unknown.

Notwithstanding, the gap between the top 6 and the rest were rather huge and it is highly unlikely that however Everton were to strengthen their defense and West Ham were to revamp their team, it will be good enough to mount a challenge to dismount us or Chelsea or Spurs.

Spurs may be hard pressed to win something. Liverpool would have to win at least a silverware from their performance in their last season and the amount of monies spent. If they don't, the pressure from their fans would be immense. City is still the team to beat. Chelsea with Sarri in would perhaps be giving Us and Liverpool the push. Spurs will be there and thereabout. Arsenal is a totally new perspective team.

So, unless Everton or West Ham as you have mentioned can mount a Leicester City of 2016, I don't think the gap to the top 6 would be closing.

We shall see. Arsenil might also spring a surprise or two. I will be watching Everton more closely this season, seems a good team on paper to watch.

According to JM Pogba came back and trained well. Needs to speak to him to see state of mind (esp all the rumours)
Letís hope Jose can really build a team around Porkbar this season.

Anyone notice Porkbar and Lukakuís relationship like abit faded off last season?

They started off so well. Even went on holiday together then slowly slowly abit off.

By the way Everton's market is crazy

Mina, Bernard and Gomes, and the Watford guy for 50m! And Zouma loan!

Wow~ How much did they get for Rooney?

It appears that the only available striker on the market this season on the last day is Ings.
Welbeck too. could have taken a chance with him for a bench warmer. he would have been happy to be back too

both sides of the same coins if you asked me.

Jose would have quit if he was not at Man Utd.

I'm just glad football is back. every year im paying 3mths of nothing to singtel.
why don't use online streaming. better than let "vampires" suck you dry.

oh okay now i get it
What many outlets saying is no release clause in Toby's current contract that runs out in 2019 summer. Spurs has an option to extend 1 year to 2020, but it will also auto add in an release clause of 25m into the contract.

we sign many players end up never win the league. this season we didn't sign much and maybe end up winning the league. hope rashford after wearing the number 10 can become like young rooney. keep scoring goals.

Because Lukaku gets on well with Mourinho while Pogba doesn't get along with Mourinho.

yes new signings need time to settle and adapt, not everyone is salah.

def if they can keep fit, lindelof will have adapted and improved.
midfield is definitely stronger with fred and pereira.
attack too is stronger with as7 now settled.

no RW, maybe we will play wingbacks instead?? i dont wanna see mata on right flank again...

Provided the players are all able to raise their performance. Several players under performed last season. There are also a few who wanted to leave or are planning to leave.

Actually...

Jose first season bought Pogba, mika and bailly.
Last season bought lukaku, matic, lindelof and sanchez during the 2nd window.
This coming season he bought grant, dalot and fred.

But people are still complaining? First transfer window target hit le, 3 players each. lolol.

Why pay Singtel when internet are full of streams? ��

Because i much rather turn on the tv and the game is already on, rather then searching for stream and hoping it doesn't lag.

I stream tho, for euros and wc and stuff, and if im at my in laws.
