The new football season is upon us and with it comes the annual question from all football fans “How will my team cope this season?”
Looking at the Premier League it looks likely to be another Manchester led fight for the title but expect Chelsea and Arsenal to keep closer order this time after extremely disappointing seasons in 2011/12.
Despite the impetus often injected from new management it seems unlikely either Tottenham or Liverpool will be able to break into a Champions League spot this season.
What will be intriguing will be to see if Newcastle can match or even improve on an extremely impressive previous campaign, with the goals of Cisse and Ba they will certainly feel they have a chance of repeating that success.
At the other end, last seasons heroes Norwich and Swansea both look set for difficult seasons after losing highly influential managers and newly promoted Southampton and Reading may also struggle.
