Reacting to my Preseason Prem Predictions!


20 Sheffield United (Actual: 20)

19 Luton Town (Actual: 18)

18 Everton (Actual: 15)

Reaction: Sheffield were bad as expected, Luton fought but still went down. Everton's defense was way better than expected though.

Relegation Survivors

17 Wolves (Actual: 14)

16 Bournemouth (Actual: 12)

15 Burnley (Actual: 19)

14 Forest (Actual: 17)

13 West Ham (Actual: 9)

Reaction: Wolves and West Ham both got out to decent starts which elevated them well. Didn't expect West Ham to be that good without Rice. Burnley absolutely crashed, I don't think anyone saw that coming. Bournemouth were just way better than expected, and Forest also were just atrocious.

Mid Table

12 Brentford (Actual: 16)

11 Fulham (Actual: 13)

10 Crystal Palace (Actual: 10)

9 Brighton (Actual: 11)

8 Aston Villa (Actual: 4)

Reaction: The Ivan Toney suspension and injuries hit Brentford very hard, so they massively disappointed. Fulham were a bit worse than expected. Palace were my sleeper team and they actually did meet my high expectations, finishing on a great run of form. Brighton were a bit worse than expected, but Villa shocked me a ton. I thought they would regress a bit after a good season last year, but they're playing UCL football next season.

Conference League

7 Tottenham (Actual: 5)

Reaction: I slept on my own team! Coming off an 8th place finish and selling our best player, I didn't expect much improvement. New signings like Vicario and Van de ven were much better than expected, and that elevated us to 5th.

Europa League

6 Chelsea (Actual: 6)

5 Newcastle (Actual: 7)

My Chelsea prediction actually ended up being spot on, despite a horrible start to the season. They climbed back to 6th place and finished on a great run of form, so they'll be playing UEL ball next season despite being 10th for most of the year. Newcastle were a bit underwhelming and very inconsistent throughout the season, and could never really keep form.

Champions League

4 Manchester United (Actual: 8)

3 Arsenal (Actual: 2)

2 Liverpool (Actual: 3)

Reaction: United absolutely disappointed. After making the leap to the UCL, I expected them to run it back, but they were extremely disappointing, with their attack looking disgraceful at times. Arsenal and Liverpool were both title contenders for most of the season, Liverpool fell apart a bit earlier than Arsenal, but neither of them could quite keep up with the eventual champions.


1 Manchester City (Actual: 1)

Reaction: Yeah, they did it again. 4 years in a row, so cool. Let someone else win 😭😭😭

Player of the Season: Erling Haaland (Actual: Phil Foden)

Golden Boot: Erling Haaland (Actual: Erling Haaland)

Golden Glove: Alisson Becker (Actual: David Raya)

Most Assists: Martin Odegaard (Actual: Ollie Watkins)

Best Manager: Jurgen Klopp (actual: Announced tmrw I think)

Reaction: I expected Haaland to just tear up the league again, but I don't think he was even top 2 on his own team. Foden was phenomenal and sealed the title for City as well. Haaland ran away with the golden boot after 4 goals vs Wolves. Arsenal's defense was just far and away the best in the league, and Raya was easily able to capture the golden glove despite people not knowing if he was even going the start. Ollie Watkins was amazing and won top assister with 13, Odegaard finished tied for 3rd with 10.
