I personally think it will still be a top two with Pool a bit closer, Arsenal have some serious work to do before August 11th to get back into title challenge mode.
What I will say though is that many teams bought well this summer, Spurs and Newcastle, Villa look ok, Bolton should be strong, likewise Everton. The bottom line is that I feel that it will be a lower points total that wins the league, can see the top sides dropping more points this year than last, the mid-table will be just as tight as before.
Newcastle have done well to get Big Sam but he has a few years ahead of him there clearing out the poor players and even poorer attitude at that club, I think they'll be top half but no better. Spurs are far more likely to push Arsenal for 4th, if they get Curtis Davies and keep Defoe, they will have a strong squad (possibly stronger than Arsenal)
Newcastle will no doubt have a very strong season compared to last . They will Def improve, and have a very strong attacking line up in Owen, Martins and Viduka. If they Keep Owen fit he'll be on or around the 20 league goal mark for sure. But a threat for the title?? Absolutely categorically no chance in hell. top 8, maybe top 6.
I can see Chelsea coming 3rd this season The players they're bought are average, Malouda looks decent but won't solve the self destructing Ego problems Chelsea have They've got the same problem real madrid had a few years back, heads to big for the changing rooms
Newcastle will push Arsenal and Tottenham for the 4th Spot, with a good manager like big Sam at the helm, it'll make the world of difference, i couldn't stand that limp wristed donkey that used to be in charge
