Kicking this off * with the list of fixtures for the Prem. Much to discuss over the summer with the transfer window and new management at some clubs.

First match, Gooners away. Let's hope we give them a run for their money.

As long as West Ham end up losing the match, I don't mind you giving them a run.

Predictions:

Top four will be the same as last year.

Relegated: It's hard to see any of the new arrivals surviving.

I'm surprised Pellegrini hasn't been sacked.  Anyway, here's an amusing article about Man City.

Andre Ayew could be what we need after shipping Bony to Man City in January.  I'm still not convinced by Gomis, but Siggurdson, Montero, Cork, Ki and Shelvey is a strong first-choice midfield.

Ashley Williams needs to stay fit, really, that looks like the only real weakness that might put us in jeapordy.

Every year Swansea remain in the Premier League is like winning the league!

OR - Fernandez is still only 26!

My predictions Top 4 - Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City
Relegated - Leicester, West Ham, Sunderland

My ex is already crowing about the Hammers going down.

Arsenal for the title.

I think it will be an average season for West Ham. I think we'll just finish in the top 10. I can't see us going down. We'll do alright. We'll go to the Omympic Satdium remaining in the Premier League. I'm happy that the owners want to take the club to the next level, that there is a vision. Falling out of the Europa League aswell is a blessing.

I'm not convinced anyone wanted a Europa League run. Injuries aren't going to help us, but we have a promising new manager.

Glad Villa squeezed a goal in there! Thought they might be off to a mediocre start to the season for a moment, there. Also glad for the Cherries that they weren't shamed - they held up their end ok, by all accounts. I like that they are in the Premiership and hope they manage to stay up (not sure how realistic a hope that is).

OMG Swansea should have won!

Montero & Ayew are going to hard to shift from the wings.

Arsenal seem to have done well in their opening match.  At least Spurs only lost 1-0, and away from home!!

Nice start. Good to stitch up the Arse, especially after we had a perfectly good goal disallowed against them last Christmas. Still, only the first game of the season but I thought we played well in the second half and looked quite a tight unit.

Wow Payet looks very tidy, well done West Ham, its always nice when one of smaller sides beat the elite 5!

So many teams look better this season hopefully it will be close on all fronts.

That depends on your point of view. 

Which is the fifth team in the "Big 5"?

Yeah. I think he'll be a handful for many teams. Looks quick.
