Time for the new season to start in the Premier League, newcomers this season are Reading, Southampton and West Ham. Once again the title race looks to be a battle between the two Manchester clubs City and United with London's big three Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham just behind. And what of Liverpool, under a new manager? Or last season's surprise Newcastle?

My season predictions:

Champions:Manchester United
Champions League: Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal
Relegated: Reading, Stoke, QPR
Top scorer: Kun Aguero

Opening day and horrible debuts for Liverpool (0-3 losers to West Brom), Norwich (0-5 to Fulham) and QPR (0-5 to Swansea). Not so good for the Gunners either, a 0-0 draw at home with Sunderland. It is going to take about a month I think to get Podolski, Giroud and Cazorla integrated into the team. Hopefully Sahin is on his way too and once Jack Wilshere returns that will be like a new signing too.

The good news is Spurs are losing 1-0 to Newcastle midway through the 2nd half.

My season predictions:

Champions: Manchester City
Champions League: Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea
Relegated: QPR, Norwich, Reading
Top scorer: Demba Ba

A bloody awful day for Villa too as they lost 1-0 at Upton Road to West Ham. New manager, newly built team, as SuperEagle noted about Arsenal's new players, it will take some time to get everyone on the same page. Plus West Ham at home were ready on their return to the Premiership.

Things could be worse, we could be Liverpool! wink.gif

I was happy for Michael Laudrup who won big on his coaching debut with Swansea. They look like they'll be an intriguing club to watch this season as they look to repeat last season's surprising campaign. New signing Michu, from Rayo Vallecano, with 2 goals in his 1st English league match.

It's great to have the EPL season underway, but I can't remember a less inspiring list of first weekend fixtures. I'm not talking about the actual results on the field. There were simply no match-ups between the top 5-6 teams, nothing that was must-see.

don't know about a ll of that. I felt the Newcastle v Spurs & the Man City v S'hampton were excellent matches. Good moments in the Reading v Stoke City match as well.

YES YES YES laugh.gif great start for the Toffees great win tonight 1 nil over the might UTD
Fellaini was outstanding tonight he ran the whole show, only for Dea Gea in the united goal it should have been 3 or 4 nil.

lets keep it doing now lord knows where we might finish if we get off to a good start
instead of only playing after christmas, 3 points at villa park next week will do wink.gif

Congrats mate. IMHO your whole backline was phenomenal. If it wasn't for De Gea, the score line would have been greater.

Yes, a very fine win for Everton. Congrats to our resident blue here. Did you guys in blue forget what it feels like to win an early season match? Been awhile since you done so but a great win. Fellaini may look like a 1970s sitcom star but he can play and United had trouble handling him all game. Fellaini also convinced his fellow Belgian, Kevin Miralles, a forward, to sign with Everton and he should help Everton's finishing problems.

It will, like with most clubs, take United some time to integrate both Kagawa and van Persie into the side. And today they announced another signing, Dutch defender Alexander Buttner, a 23 year old left back from Vitesse Arhem. Obviously he is seen as someone to push Patrice Evra.

Some other recent moves, well we all by know of Alex Song leaving Arsenal for Barcelona, taking the well worn path between the two clubs. Another Cameroonian, Spurs little used centerback Sebastian Bassong is going to Norwich.

EDIT: Good news for my Spurs, Emmanuel Adebayor is back at the club and he no longer will be on loan. He now is officially a Spurs player.

As robdog noted Newcastle-Tottenham was a matchup of two clubs which finished in the top 6 last season. On paper that was probably the best match of the weekend even if it didn't exactly deliver. Ach, it is still August, clubs are still signing/selling players, I don't usually expect much from these early season encounters. Usually it is just a pleasure to have football back but after Euro 2012 then the Olympics, it almost seems too soon to have the season kicking off. In fact some fans are still on holiday at this time of the year. By the start of September the matches will start to pick up intensity.

it wasn't so much the first day win for a long time but we had to listen to some crap over the last few weeks about what united were going to do to us after the 4-4 draw last season.

add in everything was about united and RVP before the game as moyes said after Everton also have a good side and are hard to beat at home, as the media forgot that there was two sides out monday night not one,

also whiskey nose Alex let himself down again saying Everton jusy hoof ball all night
only for Dea Gea it should have been 3 nil at half time , you know when you get the better of Alex he has nothing good to say after a game bitter pr,ck angry.gif
