City - Title. Get beaten by someone decent in champions league
United - Put the pressure on trophy/2nd. Progress from group stages. Stay in champos league to land Griezmann and actually score some goals next season
Arsenal - Re-establish in top 4. Set up replacement for Wenger
Chelsea - Title, boot the manager for anything less, despite lack of resources
Liverpool - Drink in the atmosphere of those famous European nights at Anfield


#262

Forgot Spurs - Any silverware


#263

Appropriate that I didn’t even remember Watford had hired the most nondescript-looking man in the world to manage them.


#264

Apart from all the staff hating him for his arrogance and his last season in charge being a pitiful title defence and losing to Wigan in the FA cup final.


#265

happy to see watford are still signing regens. can’t wait to see de andrade and femenia fer in action!


#266

I completely lose track of who’s managing them. Still get mildly surprised when the camera pans to the dugout and it’s not Flores there.


#267

Legitimately couldn’t tell you who their boss is.


#268

United - top 2
City - title
Chelsea - title and last 4 of champions league
Arsenal - top 4
Spurs - top 4
Liverpool - no one accidentally setting their house on fire while burning their coutinho shirt


#269

*For a City manager.


#270

Who’s managing them, who’s playing for them, who owns them, what style they play. Absolute cipher of a football club.


#271

Troy Deeney for all of the above isn’t it?


#272

Playing Z Cars was pretty small time too.


#273

I’m sure they had a completely different set of players for each game last year.


#274

Klopp SACKED


#275

He should walk into this Liverpool defence too.


#276

Lovely stuff. Okaka is a good strong boy


#277

Unamusing


#278

reckon De Boer’s gonna flop at Palace


#279

That’s the trouble with Sakho, he always tries to walk into another team’s defence.


#280

What Liverpool could do with here is a clever midfielder who can sit in between the lines and pick a pa… oh, yes, well…
