Just for a break from the Fekir saga, the EPL now has a big six ( I'm assuming Arsenal get their act together next season) .

Which teams have a chance to break in to it, and which are the most likely to drop out.

To break in, Ed 025's mob perhaps, to drop out Spurs with the new stadium and stringent pay structure would be my guess.

Any thoughts posters, Ed's 002 knowledge of financial matters should give him a edge here.

As thongs stand right now I've got arsenal to finish second behind man city. Depending on transfers for the top 6 clubs I can see them doing well.

I don't think any can sustain a push maybe one offs like Leicester or Burnley, but eventually their players get bought by bigger clubs. I don't know who has more money, but a team with the finances to pay the big wages and keep their players may have a chance, but as I said I don't know who that may be - West Ham seem to be attracting some players but aren't good, Newcastle if they get a new owner maybe?

As things stand now i. e.

•the transfer window hasn’t closed
•the World Cup hasn’t started
•next season’s fixtures haven’t even been released.

Remarkable powers of prediction Walter.

Chelsea and city will stay near the top due to their owners pouring money into the club, utd will stay near the top as they're a money making behemoth.

Liverpool Arsenal and spurs will be in the tier below them, competing for the CL places and occasionally having a look at the title.

The next tier are teams that will look to the Europa league and the occasional sniff at the CL, your looking at Everton, Newcastle, Saints.

Walter really, Arsenal have so far improved the management infrastructure, how are they jumping 5 places on that.

City a league ahead this year.

Utd financial giant.

Chelsea billionaire owner ( issue's due to nationality)

LFC, ed's 002 right again we're trying to buy the league, 2 big players coming to our weakish midfield more to come.

Arsenal rebuild but financially sound.

Spurs are the big? for me.

I would say City and Utd for their continued financial clout (but Utd a step behind under Mourinho), then Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool all very even. Liverpool clearly on the up under Klopp, Arsenal are just beginning a recovery path, and Chelsea and Tottenham with some issues to resolve.

I think next season will see Liverpool and City go toe to toe.

On current business to date I think it’s city ( strongest squad in league) Liverpool ( look like we have improved MF) and spurs ( tieing some of them better players long term) with the rest fighting it out.

Man utd - will spend heavily I’m sure again but they looked truely awful most of last season. If they lose De Gea I could see them easily dropping out as I think he was more responsible for their 2nd places finish than JM was.

Arsenal- apparently improved their infrastructure but their team still has many holes and have more changes to make than the other clubs. New manager in a brand new league may also be problematic

Chelsea- too much uncertainty around them as they need some major squad changes - are the better players being snapped up before? I think they will do well just to hold onto their better players. Again a likely new manager in a new league could go either Way.

SG, sort of agree with you on this.
City and United will push hard for top spot, but Klopp and the Reds will be right up there too.
Mourinho will continue to agitate at United though and they will slip up throughout the season.
I think Spurs overachieved last season, and coupled with moving to the new ground, I think they will miss out on top 4. I also think Arsenal aren't good enough for top 4 at the moment, and with a new manager in place, they will also struggle. Chelsea could improve, depends on who they buy, managerial appointments?
My prediction for the top 7 is :

Man City
Man Utd

Then again, What do I know!

Ron arsenal have a new manager and new players already. Why always so rude dude? It's only an opinion.
If/ when the other teams buy I will review my prediction.
Couldn't care less that the world Cup is on and has nothing to do with my prediction. As I said if the teams buy after the world Cup I'll review my current prediction.

only thing i'll say walter is doing you really think as things stand arsenal have improved enough to over take us? would you swap their squad and manager for ours?

Possible I'd concider managers and goalkeepers. I wouldn't say no to aubameyang either.

Didn’t think I was being rude Walter, I wasn’t intending to be - sorry 🤝

I just struggle to see how you can make such predictions when there are so many events still to unfold.

Again, sorry if I seemed rude. 👍.

All cool dude was just my opinion as I said might change once more teams purchase players.
I think arsenal will do very well next season. 2nd is achievable if man u implode.
