2012-13 Predictions/Random Guesses

Post by Mario on Thu Aug 16, 2012 4:02 am

Right, bit of fun, what do we think of the coming season? I'll go first:


Premiership
Champions: Man City
2nd: Man Utd
3rd: Chelsea
4th: Arsenal

5th: Tottenham
6th: Liverpool

Relegated: Southampton, Norwich, Reading


Champions League: Real Madrid
FA Cup: Man Utd
Carling Cup: Man City

Arsenal Player of the Season: Santi Cazorla - all depends on how he adapts to the Premiership, it will take some time, but he is such an exciting player and is exactly what we needed that should he stay healthy and find some early form then he is Cesc's able replacement.
Arsenal Top Scorer: Lukas Podolski - Again, depends on how he quickly he adapts, but a good finisher who will probably take our penalties, too.


Prefer to do these once the transfer window shuts rather than before the season starts because as we saw last season, so many things can change. But I'm online now so here it is. And yes, don't think the 'trophy drought' ends but with the domestic cups it all depends on the draw, a good draw and suddenly you're deep into the competition whilst your rivals knock each other out. But more often than not we end up losing away to a Northern team.

For about three seasons I've been banging the drum saying Fernando Torres is finished. I think he's going to have a second wave, or an amazing season then revert to being shot to pieces. Not sure about Golden Boot, but imo Torres will be one of the players of the season. Champions League confidence from last season and departure of Drogba will be a nine month making of him. That's what I predict. What I hope is that he puts four past Liverpool at Anfield for the fuck of it.

Not very bold but Jack Wilshere will play 10 games max. I think he's the next Diaby in terms of injury reliability.

1: City
2: United
3: Arsenal
4: Chelsea

5: Newcastle
6: Liverpool

Relegated: S'hampton, Reading, Norwich

CL: Bayern (heart, not head, probably subject to change, maybe City)

FA: Chelsea
Carling: City

Hard for defenders to win it though, when last did a defender win pfa player of the year? He might get into the team of the year though, but even that will require Arsenal to actually do something special this year

I think it can happen. Terry won it in 05, Paul McGrath before. Cannavoro won a Ballon D'Or I think.

1st : City
2nd: Arsenal
3rd: United
4th: Newcastle

5th: Chelsea
6th: Liverpool

Expect Chelsea to struggle this season. Good players, but not a cohesive team to get consistent results sort of scenario.

CL: Bayern
FA: Arsenal
League Cup: Manc. United

League top scorer: Aguero
Our best player: Gervinho/Cazorla
Top scorer: Podolski

i know what you are saying. it definitely helps. but McGrath won in 92/93, and villa didn't win a trophy that year.

Pallister won the year before, and United only won a league cup that year. and it is based on premier league performances.

92/93...so two decades ago. After that Terry won the league conceding 15 goals all season (cech was also short listed) and Cannavaro won the WC.. of course it can happen, but you have to have an exceptional defensive year both as an individual and as a team, that just wont happen at Arsenal

1: City
2: United
3: Arsenal
4: Chelsea

5: Liverpool
6: Newcastle

Relegated: West Brom, Reading, Norwich

CL: Real Madrid

FA: Arsenal
Carling: Man City

Arsenal Player of the Season: Laurent Koscielny. Cazorla will probably get the praise due to being attacking, but I think Kos will be the rock.
Arsenal Top Scorer: Podolski. Whether he plays on theleft, through the centre or mixes it up he can score from either position. We have a new awesome left foot at Arsenal now.

Premiership
Champions: Man City
2nd: Man Utd
3rd: Arsenal
4th: Chelsea

5th: Liverpool
6th: Newcastle

Relegated: don't care to guess


Champions League: Real Madrid
FA Cup: Arsenal
Carling Cup: Chelsea

Golden Boot: Carlos Tevez
First Manager Out: Roberto Di Matteo

Arsenal Player of the Season: Santi Cazorla - would say Koscielny but it's generally hard for defenders to get this, plus I have a suspicion he may be out for a while this season.
Arsenal Top Scorer: Giroud - more a case of goals spread evenly around the team. Theo will step up in the goal scoring department, and Gervais will find his feet as well. Ramsey, Wilshere and Ox also to score in the higher single figures.
Arsenal Flop of the Season: Podolski... the curse of the #9.

Man City will win the league, but it will be far from comfortable: Man Utd will push them all the way again. We'll be in the mix for a long time but drop away towards March, when injuries pile up. Chelsea will underperform until Xmas, whereupon Di Matteo will be sacked. The new manager will give them a boost but it won't be enough. Newcastle will do well again, and Liverpool will do a bit better than last year, but will struggle for goals again. They'll be less of a joke overall though. Spurs will sign a striker but will struggle anyway.

As for Arsenal, we'll have a strong season overall, but we will struggle a bit for goals as Podolski disappoints. Chamakh will become a useful player again, but not a world beater. Luckily, we will be a lot more solid defensively, and so it will balance out somewhat.

There are plenty of people that criticise us more optimistic fans, so we keep quiet about our optimism these days...
