Ferriria No chance with Bosingwa there

For Liverpool I'd say Gerrard, Torres, Carragher, Reina.

For all the other teams I agree with Keano except the one player I highlighted :p

Although I'd probably add Lampard to Chelsea's list as long as he stays at the club

Bosingwa is injured for the time being, I'd imagine Ballack will probably start most of the time?

I think Ferriria will be a regular purley because of the International connection.
Scolari comes across as that sort of guy.

As for Lampard, I can't see him getting regular action with Makalele, Ballack, Deco
and Cole ahead of him. Those 4 are better all round players then Lampard IMO,
maybe not Cole so much but hes a decent player.


Anyways

I don't think anyone has improved enough(including us) to really make a difference in the Premiership this year.

Going by Zuco's post above^^^
Pretty much spot on with most of it there. A few different players might get
picked depending on how the managers see it. But you are pretty spot on ;)

Chelsea:
Its so hard to predict Chelsea's to be fair. How do you pick between Deco,
Lamps, Essien and Ballack? They are all quality players but he cant pick all 4.
Presume he will play Deco cos he bought him and coached him. Its a nice
problem for Scolari to have unfortunately for us. Wright-Phillips might get a spot
on the wing instead of Kalou or Cole and even Anelka might get brought in there,
if Scolari gets desperate. Bridge has a good chance to take Cole's spot and Alex
might feature more with him being a fellow Brazilian.

Liverpool:might have Aurelio playing depending on how the new full backs settle.
The rest of the team pretty much picks itself. They have no real quality they
can bring in at the moment to improve the first 11. Benayoun isnt the greatest
and Babel is up and down, though tbf he is a very good prospect.
Keane and Torres could be a lethal partnership. Watch this space.
Best Pool can hope for is 3rd though, and even that will be tough for them :D

Arsenal: Their defenders and forwards are the obvious ones. Certainties
to get in the first 11 when fit. They need to buy another midfielder though.
Diaby isnt a bad player but compared to what the other Top 3 teams have,
he's not good enough. Nasri is amazing but we need to see how he settles
into English football. Walcott should play more of a role this season and
Bendtner will be pushing too. He may even become a starter...

Im most worried about Chelsea. They will be our main rivals.
Arse and Pool still need to buy some real quality this summer to be up there
near the top.

1.United
2.Chelsea
3.Arse
4.Pool

Their back 4 could prove quite shaky.
Indeed. two of them are new signings and it can take time for
understandings to develop and partnerships to flourish.

If the new boys are put into the starting lineup straight away
I expect they'll concede quite a few goals, though i think Aurelio
and Finnan will be fighting for places as well.

I saw Dossena pretty much every week in the Serie A, he's alright, could prove hard for him to adapt to England. Finnan and Aurelio will also get time since it seems Rafa just picks his line-up out of a hat sometimes.
