Did I just see someone give themselves as right for Rondon as top scorer?  :hmm:

I didn't do the range of predictions everyone here did, but I did make an incredibly wrong league prediction:

Premiership
Winners: Man City (low 90s points)  :)
Runners Up: Liverpool (mid 80s points)  :)
3rd-6th: Tottenham, Man U (only thanks to de Gea), Arsenal, Chelsea  :rolleyes: de Gea had a bad year, but a good one might have been enough given how crap 3rd and 4th were
Relegation: Southampton, Cardiff, Huddersfield  :) Southampton needed a new manager to stay up
Overachievers: Us (non relegation), Leicester for 7th  :hmm: nearly. Based on wages, we are the biggest overachiever.
Underperformers: Man U, Chelsea, Everton, Burnley (15th)   :rolleyes: Chelsea slumped but good on the whole, Burnley did slump, Everton took all season to pick it up, Man U look ferked
Top Goal Scorer: Salah Aguero Aubameyang Kane in some order  :cool:
Break Out Year: Iheanacho? Batshuayi? Top four will be sniffing around Lascelles next summer, maybe Dubravka too.  :fool: Iheanacho was hopeless, Batshuayi didn't play, Dubs was great, Lascelles stopped scoring and now looks dependent on having good ball-players alongside
Season to Forget: if this tournament thing is serious, England's national team will struggle against Croatia and Spain, Sterling could also end up behind Sane and Mahrez.  :fool: :idiot2: Totally wrong. England built on what was good fortune at the WC and Sterling is exceptional
PFA Player of the Year: Salah. Not as good as last time, but still very very good.
PFA Young Player of the Year: Sane, Batshuayi outside bet.  :idiot2: Neither played much. Some vital goals from Sane when he did
Manager of the Year: Guardiola  :) Given how hard it is to repeat, he has to be
First manager to quit/be sacked: Hughes  :D

Championship
Dunno

Newcastle United
Where will we finish?: 11th  :D Close enough
Top Goalscorer?: Rondon 10, Muto will get close if he gets minutes. Mitro will get about the same for Fulham  :mike: Not far off. Muto nowhere near though
How will we do in the cup competitions?: Lose to Champo team in league cup, get nightmare draw in FA Cup.  :embarrassed: Honestly can't remember.
Will Rafa still be manager at the end of the season?: He'll last to the end of the season, but won't sign again without a takeover  :jesuswept: Still praying
Who will be the first player to be sent off for us?: Yedlin?  :cool: Can't remember if right, he's a weak link either way.

Will Alan Pardew be managing at the end of the 2018/19 season?: Maybe, because the coin is way better than punditry. Not in the Prem though.
Will Jose Mourinho still be in charge of Manchester United come the end of the season?: No
Where will Sunderland finish?: Playoffs  ;D ;D ;D

Is there another one of these threads? Could have sworn I did one.

This is (very mildly) interesting too:

Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

I would have though that would be Burnley?
