Top 6: Blue Manc, Spurs, Redshite, Chavs, Everton, Arsenal
Relegated: Blades, Villa and Brighton
Where will your team finish: 5th
First Manager to be sacked: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - Sacked after losing the first seven games. GNev takes over, but is gone by January. Big Sam takes the reigns by blagging a three year contract and guides them to 12th.
Top scorer: Sane
Signing of the summer: Pulisic
Biggest flop: Jack Grealish turns out to be just a decent Championship player.
Most number of swears in a single Scamp post: 84
Biggest controversy: Phil Jones is caught taking performance enhancing drugs. Nobody notices any difference.

Top 6: Man City, Liverpool, Chavs, United, Spuds, Arsenal.
Relegated: Sheffield United, Brighton, Norwich
Where will your team finish: 11th
First Manager to be sacked: Stevie Bruce
Top scorer: Sterling
Signing of the summer: Che Adams at Saints or Kean at Everton.
Biggest flop: Zaha if he goes anywhere, if not then Pepe probably at Arsenal, he'll just be another Eboue or something.
Most number of swears in a single Scamp post: Probably a lot, especially if we're doing badly under Saint Ralph for one reason or another. OR, a lot if we do really well and beat some of the big teams with **** fans, like Liverpool or United.
Biggest controversy: VAR, 100000% and having to listen to Keys and Gray analyse it all on BeIn Sports here. It'll be ****ing agony. If not VAR and it all magically works wonders then it'll be something atrocious like a forced introduction of female commentators (the worst) or new advertising space on the shorts or where the names go on the shirts like happens in shit European countries.

Biggest controversy:
I might actually put 20 quid on Spurs for the league at 16-1 if we pull this and Coutinho off: https://www.skysports.com/football/n...ventus-forward

My prediction for Top 6: 1)City 2)Liverpool 3)Spurs 4)Arsenal 5)Chelsea 6)Everton
Relegated: The 3 who came up
First Manager to be sacked: Solk or Lamps
Top scorer: Harry Kane
Signing of the summer: Ndombele
Biggest Flop: Manchester United will finish outside the Top 6. Signings wise Pepe at Arsenal is not a bad shout.
Most number of swears in a single post by Scamp: It depends how much Pommy and I rile him with Tottenham posts but I would but it anywhere between 10 and 20.
Biggest Controversy: We'll see how financial fair play and Manchester City plays out.

I don't want to douse your optimism but I've included Sane in my Fantasy Premier League team. This means he will be a sack of shit.

Coutinho seems to be linked to a number of clubs, probably to drive the price up for Spurs....

Coming on loan kid.

Perhaps if your lot hadn't blown their load already and panic overpaid for an unproven player from a minor league then you'd be in for him too? Oh well.....

How is the new defence coming along?

**** me that's a huge chomp.

I saw Coutinho was going to Spurs, next day I saw Arsenal and then today a mate just sent that he's going to Spurs and you're trying to get Dybala too?

I mean, flip me, that would be a bit of a special pair to come in late and would push you towards having the squad size and quality needed to genuinely challenge.
