Terrible moustache, Ian. Not-terrible defending, Alan
JeffStellingSoccerSat_1095827.jpgHot on the heels of the news that the Guardian “jinxed” Liverpool’s tilt at a 19th league title, Sky Sports pundit Jeff Stelling has added to the weight of the hex:
“Manchester United are unquestionably weaker than last year, while Chelsea are no stronger and they are all a year older. Liverpool have got Fernando Torres, who will score a bagful if he plays for a full season (it’s not exactly very original to say that is it?) and of course there’s the inspirational Steven Gerrard. I was disappointed to see them get rid of Xabi Alonso, but they were so close last year and they barely need to improve at all. I just think it could be their year.”
That’s torn it.
Jeff goes on to tip Man City for a Champions League spot. Was he at the sherry when he made these predictions? [@ Sky Sports]

    I agree with him.

  2. Tony says:

    I totally agree with him (Jeff Stelling) too. Chelsea will also be without a manager who are used to win league trophies. Chelsea are my ti fo CL, but Liverpool I think will win the league.
    Do not agree that City will get a CL-spot though, they lack balance in the team. If there is one / two teams that maybe can break the top 4, it is either Aston Villa or Everton.
    Have people also noticed that Piers Morgan also predicted Liverpool to win it?

  6. K says:

    Nah, it’ll be Chelski.
    Liverpool couldn’t win it even when they beat both United and Chelsea twice in a season.
    I think it’ll be Chelsea, Liverpool then United.

  8. Matthew Hunt says:

    For me its gotta be Chelsea, Strength of squad is far better that Man U and Liverpool this year and if Man City get Sylvain Distin before the end of the transfer deadline I think they will break the top 4.
    1. Chelsea
    2. Manchester United
    3. Liverpool
    4. Manchester City

  11. ed says:

    i cant remember anyone tipping liverpool for the title in the last 15 years until towards the end of last season and i dont think that jynxed us as we only dropped two points in the last eleven games. so if you talk of a kind of winning jynx then bring it on.
