    Manchester City coach Manuel Pelligrini says that Man City has the best roster in the Premier League. Agree or disagree?

    This is my second year following a Championship side. After some research and ridiculous reasoning, we decided to support Nottingham Forest. They've started the season with two wins, one in league play over Huddersfield 1-0 and the other in the first round of the Carling Cup against Hartlepool 3-1.

    My EPL team is Liverpool. Looking forward to Brendan Rogers' second season. Gerrard, Cutinho and Sturridge need to get off to quick starts to make up for the suspended Suarez.

    So what happens if Nottingham gets promoted, both teams would be in the same table, though obviously at very different levels of it (championship race vs. race to not get relegated)?

    In head to head matchups it would be Liverpool. I've followed them for about 15 years. But you're right, they'll be competing at different levels.

    As a United fan I would.......maybe......agree......

    They should though! Top top talent, just not as much depth. I'll say yes.

    But seriously..... LOL. Fuck Pellagrini. What has he ever won again? Oh yea, not shit. And a very very average CL record.

    Liverpool fan as some of you may know by now. Looking forward to the new season! Man. Utd, Chelsea and Man. City are by far the best 3 clubs but we'll fight with Arsenal and Tottenham for the Champions League position (4th). In my opinion, we are better than Arsenal but Tottenham is a little better, even without Bale.

    I'll have to agree. It's a very interesting season actually, as there is no clear favourite because of all the manager changes in the top clubs.

    If I had to pick a team to win the league though, it'd be Chelsea. Great squad and the best manager in the world (im my opinion). City second and United third, I think.

    Nice to see Liverpool get the points and playing attractive soccer for most of the game. They had one goal called back and hit two posts. Unfortunately, they sat back and let Stoke carry the play in the last 15 minutes and needed a penalty save from Mignolet in the 87th to get the full three.

    Caught the last half hour of the Palace/Tottenham game. Tottenham was lucky to get out with three points. Palace was coming on and no doubt would have scored if they had ten more minutes.

    I honestly can't see Wenger not getting sacked by the end of the year. It's still early, I know, but arsenal fans seem to be losing their patience with him and I can't really blame them.

    Read an article on TalkSport speculating the deal was done over the summer which is why Tottenham went on a buying spree. Not sure if I buy that. If the money is as ridiculous as what's being reported Spurs have to sell. Bale is a great goal scorer, but $94m can but a lot of talent.
