We caught up with the team over at Bet on Brazil and had something of a rambling conversation about next year’s Premier League results. Looking at the top end of the table, it’s certainly going to be very competitive. But who will slip back into the Championship? Here are some of the candidates:
With the sights and sounds of the summer’s World Cup in Brazil now just a distant memory, the focus has switched to the upcoming Premier League kick-off next month. With the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all looking set to be in the race for this season’s title, we could be about to witness the most exciting Premier League campaign in recent years.
Sir Alex Ferguson will end this Premier League season having managed Manchester United for the 1,500th time.
The retiring Old Trafford boss who has won 38 trophies now during his 26 year reign will be replaced by Everton manager David Moyes.

Last week Manchester United played Swansea which was Ferguson’s final home game in charge of the Red Devils. Ferguson received a huge ovation before thousands of people lined the streets for the Premier League champion’s parade on Monday.
“Sunday was amazing and the parade on Monday, it was incredible, even better than 1999.” Ferguson said.
“I thought the scenes after the treble in 1999 couldn’t be beaten but I think Monday probably did.”
“I went home that night and got 10 hours sleep, the first time in my life. It was marvellous, really good.”
Ferguson will stay on at Old Trafford as a director and an ambassador and has asked United fans to support Moyes when he takes over as manager this summer.
The 71-year-old prepared for his last game at the helm by holding his final pre-match press conference on Friday morning at United’s training ground. The media presented Ferguson with a cake before the news conference to honour the 26 years he has spent in charge of Manchester United.
Ferguson admits his final act will be to look to the future. “I’ll make some changes to the team and play some of the younger ones on Sunday,” he said. “Anders Lindegaard will be in goal and I want to play Phil Jones and Jonny Evans at centre half as they could be the future. ”Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic can sit on the bench with me.”
