Malky Mackay has joined Palace. Most fans seem happy with that appointment..... saying it's a done deal... But that was 5 hours ago, and now that Palace factor is kicking back in.

OK, the new season is almost upon is, so it's prediction time...

Who will finish in the Top 4?
Chelsea, City, Arsenal, Liverpool

Who will be relegated?
Burnley, Sunderland, Leicester

Where will your team finish?
11th

First manager to get the boot?
Pochettino or Pardew :f ingerscrossed:

First player to be banned for more than a red card?
Hopefully not Wanyama, The Kenyan Destroyer. Hopefully it will be Lovren. Should be banned for being a money-grabbing **** head.

Top scorer.
Sturridge.

Best signing.
Tadic, or Forster....in all seriousness - Fabregas.

Biggest flop.
Pelle.... I can just tell. Agustin Delgado MkII

My only hope is that Ballotteli has matured a bit now that he is 24. It could be a bargain, or one idiot out and another in.

There's just something about Mario that I can't help but like, even when he's being a twat. Now he's going to play for your lot that will obviously change.

In other news it seems that Eto'o is heading to Merseyside, but no-one knows what colour shirt he's going to be wearing.

LOL, serious problems, can you believe this latest saga, new managers lined up under investigation for racist tweets. If Palace get out of this this season it will be a miracle.

Racist tweets, I'm imagining a sparrow going chirp, Paki, chirp. I hope we both survive to be honest

This season is starting to become annoying, that's two games in a row where we've let a crap team back into a game and dropped two points. I'm not looking forward to when we play a good team.

As for Arsenal, anyone thinking they have a chance to win the league this year are clearly delusional, they have about as much chance as Man Utd. Speaking of which I see di Maria has been chosen to be this season's Fellaini, only far more expensive.

I seriously question Wenger's skills in man management.
You get the impression that players brought in seem to lose motivation.
Where as many players that leave seem to realise their potential.
A recent example being Chamakh.

So, Angel di Maria, for a small fortune....and into a position we didn't need filled (those being defensive centre-mid & centre-half)....your thoughts, Ed?

Personally, while there is no doubting the boy's ability, it is hard to see any logic in the order of players United are signing, with Rojo another left-back to join Luke Shaw, while our defence is crying out for a battle-hardened leader in the old Bruce or Stam mould- I sincerely hope to see a Hummels type player arrive in the next week, or I fear we will once again be watching on as the race for CL football next season takes place without us....

Yeah I don't understand why you haven't got a new centre back yet. You have Jones, Smalling and Evans, none of whom are good enough. Yet the only centre backs you've been linked with are Hummels who's not going anywhere and Vermaelen who's gone to Barca. I don't understand why football's biggest genius (cf. The Gruan) wasn't even interested in de Vrij before he went to Lazio.

But van Gaal can always play 3-5-2, I can't see any problems there...

More stuff about my own club now. Looks like the Eto'o deal is pretty much done. I think it could be a good move so long as his wages don't take the piss. I'm a little worried why our players aren't fit enough to last 90 minutes though. Say what you like about Moyes's tactics, he would always have a team that was fit. It's definitely cost us two points on Saturday, and contributed to only drawing with Lesta.

I'm still trying to figure it out. I can only assume he's working with Keegan's fool-proof "you score 5, we'll score 6" philosophy. Unless he has someone else lined up (only a week of the TF to go) then we'll be struggling to finish in the top 6 again.

I'm happy with who we've signed, but without a nails defender or holding midfielder in the Keane/Viera mould, we're ****ed.

Robbie Savage is busy putting the boot in, calling this the worst United side in the PL. It's clearly better than last years', and also better than any side he played in since he was told to **** off in 1991.

Moyes had 6 points at this stage last season... Just sayin'.
