    Which team will win English F.A. Premier League 2003-2004?

    I hope it is other than Man Utd. My favorite is Chelsea. :thumbsup:

    Hard to see anyone other than ManU or Arsenal winning it. The FA Coommunity Shield has just finished. ManU win on pens and its clear that both teams are going to be tough to beat. I dont think Chelsea can get their new team together fast enough.

    ManU have lost Becks and Sabo but Eric D-D looks like a good buy. Tough and skilful. Keeper was at fault for Arsenals goal - but otherwise kept impeccably and looks like the new number 1.

    Accrington Stanley are live on Sky in 20 mins. Some of us never thought we'd live to see that ..... :D

    Charlton are gonna be the Champions no bias here:D

    or if not them Man Utd or Arsenal will most likely win it very hard to sepearte the two teams but Arsenal defence may be a weakness more with keown comming up to 37 :eek: and there dosnt look a great partener to go with Cambell while United look slightly stronger but i would excpect fergie to splash some cash between now and when the transfer window closes

    I think Chelsea- Ranieri is a good manager and has made some excellent signings. If they are short in any area than Abramovich will just splash out on a world class player- no other club can do this. I'm a liverpool fan and would be happy if we qualify for the Champions League. As long as Man U don't win it i'll be happy. Lost a bit of interest in football now though- money seems to have ruined the game.

    I would have to say Arsenal. For me, when they are at their best, they are far better than anything else in the Premiership.

    However, Chelsea made good progress last season to finish in the Champions League places. And with all their new signings I expect a lot from them this year. They should be a far stronger outfit and I expect a more consistent Chelsea this season. They should do well.

    Regardless of who wins it, I expect this seasons top 4 to consist of the same teams as last year's.

    Nah Liverpool just don't seem to have the consistency and i don't know if the new signings will make a difference. If we do want to win it we'll have to splash the cash like Chelsea have done. Unfortunately though there aren't many billionaires around!
