World domination beckons…
This is it, the time for BruceBall to become the dominant force in British football for the next decade. The Luckiest Manager in the League has had a couple of seasons to get used to the manager’s chair (and catering), so now, with fewer out-field players than ever in the squad, and no need to bed-in annoying newbies, his random team selections will be even more refined. It seems we’ll have four goalkeepers in the squad – how is anybody going to score against FOUR goalkeepers? Clean sheets at one end and only one decent striker in the squad who will get all our goals – take a spread bet at Callum hitting over 35; a shoe-in for the Golden Boot.
Where will NUFC finish?
Top 4, unlikely to be top-top as it’s a really long season and we’ll do well in the cups; but you never know.
Who will be NUFC’s outstanding performer?
Joelinton – time to shrug off the Jessie J (i.e., Price tag) and take his place amongst the pantheon of NUFC greats. Playing as a true #7, at the heart of midfield (must be a chance SB will try him there) he’ll break the Premier league assist record by Christmas. New nickname ‘Slide-rule’.
Will Bruce see the season out?
Of course – 17 game winning streak from start of season provides a foundation for a glorious run to League Cup and FA Cup glory after New Year. Statue erected outside the disabled bogs next Summer with a shiny pot in each hand (note: may be a piss-pot and not an actual trophy).
Who will be Premier League champions?
Villa, sadly. The *cough* Big Six get sucked into the European Super League and booted out of the Prem. Leeds and Burnley and us make up the Top 4 in a hark back to traditional giants of the English Game.
Who will be relegated?
Nobody – due to Top 6 leaving. And let’s stop pissing about and get Forest, Blackburn and Wednesday back; if only for the away trips
CASTLE FARM MAG (just out of extended isolation period in a Mexican quarantine unit, nurse, my meds, now!!!!!!!!)
