Now that's more realistic, except i think that Everton will finish above Villa, and Blackburn a bit higher up the table.
I think Villa will sell Barry and build, buy 2 or 3 really good players, build their squad a little bit and push on, they play some great stuff and just need some legs in the squad for the final third of the season. Blackburn will sell Roque and I doubt they have the pulling power for a real goalscorer unless they pluck a gem from the lower leagues.
If there's any suprises, i'd put money on Sunderland being a suprise package. Clubs like Blackburn, Wigan, Bolton, Portsmouth, get sniped for their good players from the top 7. Even West Ham can finish higher up if we get a good striker in and an attacking midfielder (Tuncay please, perfect fit for our side). It'll be an interesting season.
End of next season (way off but hey), Sir Alex will retire, Moyes (yes, Moyes), Mourinho or Capello come in. Ideal situation; England win the World Cup in South Africa, Capello resigns and goes to Manchester United. He or Mourinho would be perfect for Manchester United. Regardless, I think Moyes will leave Everton for a bigger club (Arsenal or Chelsea) and Owen Coyle will go to Everton.
