EPL Predictions From Some American Idiots

With the start of the Premier League around the corner, we’ll be sharing our picks. Chris Pierce (referred to as Pierce), Chris Creighton (referred to as Creighton) and Jeremy Goldenberg with our completely biased and uneducated predictions.

Pierce:

Relegation (in random order)

  1. Brighton and Hove Albion
  2. Southampton
  3. Burnley

My top 4 this season

  1. Liverpool
  2. Manchester City
  3. Arsenal
  4. Wolverhampton

Creighton:

Teams to be relegated this year: (in this order)

  1. Bournemouth (I’ve never been hot on them, and Billing is probably the only interesting prospect they have.)
  2. Watford (Welbeck can’t save ’em)
  3. Norwich City (Awesome green color in their badge, but that’s it)

None of these teams have struck me as teams that actually can pull the stops out at the end of the year to provide themselves with staying power. I might be wrong about Watford, a couple of their transfers this offseason were key. If not them, then definitely Brighton.

Teams I will force myself to put ahead of Everton in the Top 4:

  1. Tottenham (Yes, I know this is a long shot.)
  2. Liverpool (This pains me…)
  3. Man City (Just to piss off my United friends)
  4. Wolves (I want this to happen, so let it be so)

That being said, I think Everton are 5th this year. Their transfer window was amazing. Chelsea will be in 6th…because I said so. Mostly just to annoy the person who’s making their prediction below. ❤

Jeremy:

Simply put relegation will be way more entertaining than the top 4, in my opinon or at least the top 2. I still think there is a gap between Liverpool and Manchester City and the rest of the league, and if Spurs can actually finish off a season I think the only interesting place will be 4. The bottom three should be fun this year.

Top 4: 

  1. Manchester City
  2. Liverpool
  3. Tottenham (lord that hurts)
  4. Chelsea

Why Chelsea over Arsenal, United or a third party, well I honestly don’t think Arsenal did enough in the window to make up ground even with the defenders coming in. United I don’t trust Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. So why not Frank’s Chelsea. As for Everton, maybe top 8, if they get behind Marco Silva, not worried about who they brought in…

Relegation (in no particular order)

  1. Sheffield United (didn’t see enough in the window)
  2. Newcastle (don’t trust Steve Bruce or Mike Ashley)
  3. Brighton and Hove Albion (feels like with the loss of the manager that got them there and some of the players who left it’s gonna be a rough year)

Random People we know (don’t worry, we gave them code names) and asked:
