Premiership Tables...

I'd settle for a League table that looked like this at the close of season. Obviously I'd prefer to see Arsenal top, but I could live with this looking at where Man U are and the three relegated teams (Just to endear myself to Gareth and Laura :p).

Plus it'd be fantastic to see a team like Hull playing in Europe!

1 Chelsea 4 7 10
2 Liverpool 4 3 10
3 Arsenal 4 7 9
4 Aston Villa 4 2 7

5 Hull 4 -3 7

6 Man City 4 2 6
7 Fulham 3 1 6
8 West Ham 4 0 6
9 Middlesbrough 4 0 6
10 Portsmouth 4 -1 6
11 Everton 4 -2 6
12 Wigan 4 3 4
13 Bolton 4 0 4
14 Man Utd 3 0 4
15 West Brom 4 -1 4
16 Newcastle 4 -3 4
17 Sunderland 4 -3 4

18 Blackburn 4 -6 4
19 Stoke 4 -3 3
20 Tottenham 4 -3 1

I'm a Gunners supporter myself, Angus, but don't see them having an excellent season this year, although they seem to be playing relatively well right now. Would also be nice to see Spurs place a bit higher in the tables, but that remains to be seen...

Oh, I'm quite happy to see Spurs exactly were they are at the moment :p

But then I grew up in a very Arsenal/Tottenham divided neighborhood when I moved to London and sided with arsenal because they had a better strip! But deep rooted physcology means I always smile when Tottenham aren't doing so well. One of my sisters hates me for that as she choose Tottenham for some unknown reason... possibly the same as me choosing Norwich as the club I support nearest my birthplace with the rest of the family choosing Ipswich (my Uncle is even an Ipswich season ticket holder and has een for years).

I'm sure Tottenham will improve though and aren't in any danger of going down. Same as Man U, they'll still end up in the top 2 or 3 at the end of the season even with a flatering start. Arsenal and Chelsea should also be up there with Liverpool challenging this year and Aston Villa doing well due to their manager and Man City doing well due to their influx of money which will see lots of new faces in the January transfer window no doubt.

Ooh, growing up in an Arsenal/Tottenham divided neighbourhood like that must have been interesting! My mom and sister are Spurs fans, so I know what that's like, but as the lone Gunners fan, it made me feel...on my own. My dad always supported West Bromwich Albion, so...

I suspect that, as you say, Liverpool will challenge the big boys this year, but we'll have to wait and see about Aston Villa and Man City. There's changes there that will really determine what happens and all, but they seem to be changes for the better.

spurs and paul ince relegated? count me in, I'm definitely up for it!

To make it perfect I'd just swap Liverpool and Chelski's places and the Hammers with Man City - 6th place should guarantee Europe for us too after all and given the farce that's been going on recently (zola, for fucks sake... nothing better than forcing curbs out to replace him with a totally inexperienced ex-chelsea player eh? NOT!) it'd be WAY OVER my expectations for this season!

It was even better before last night when Hull were in a Champions League spot!

Also like the look of Wednesday being in the play-offs in the Championship. That's even less likely to last...

Hull doing well? I thought the tigers were rubbish! Hull is a rugby town really - with two teams in the Superleague - so if the footy is doing good too...something has gone odd!

It's just that I spent all last season waiting for Tottenham to get out of danger of relegation, and now I have to do it all over again. *sigh*
