I doubt they will to be honest. I think Sturridge will step up plus the transfer market isn't closed yet, I say top 4 again at least.

I think top 4 as well. Liverpool are good.. Sturridge will get better as well still, and Sterling will too..

Liverpool will find it hard to cope with losing Suarez, and Arsenal will choke and be lucky to finish 4th (like usual).

Lay off the drugs dude. UTD will not win anything. I have them finishing 5th. I seriously think Tottenham is better than they are now.

Way too early in the season to draw any conclusions but none of the "favorites" had great starts so far. Let's see how Chelsea does today.

We just need that enthusiasm to translate to MLS attendance. MLS is making changes to it's salary cap and TV deal, so being able to retain talent will increase.

The USA has a high population and wealth, so it's only a matter of time before we start producing some top talent and make a strong World Cup run.
The problem with this statement is first, The NFL game in london is a regular season game which actually means something and the London media premotes it as such. This was a friendly in "Ann Arbor". How many times has ESPN been cheerleaders in wanting London to have a team based on the 80,000 + crowd number? I think if the US can produce a dominant "Front Office" team and a decent fan base, then we can produce a team that compete in the EPL.

Utd is supposedly bringing Di Maria soon for 50 million Euros plus another 50 million in salaries spread over a 5 year contract.
