I posted these predictions a little less than a year ago (August 17th) and I figured I'd see how I did.the-asylum/soccer-general-t39047.html?hilit=soccer%20in%20general&start=2100

1: I think this is Cardiff's year for promotion.
2: I don't like Tottenham's chances of finishing in the top four. I'm thinking sixth place tops. They lost a lot of important pieces in the off season and I don't think they did enough to replace them.
3: Like last year, I think that the top spot in the Premier League is going to come down to the two big Manchester teams.
4: I think Rangers will only spend one season down in Scotland's Third Division.
5: Palace will struggle this season. I hate to say it, but I think they'll be in the middle of the relegation fight this year.
Anyone have their own predictions.
I was correct about Cardiff
My prediction about Tottenham was fairly good. I was right about them not finishing in the top four, but wrong about their position. Still, I was only off by one position place, so I'd say not bad overall.
Man Utd. and City finishing one and two -- this one, I was sort of right about. They did finish top two, but I have to admit I was predicting a closer finish than what we got.
The Rangers prediction was a shoe in bet that I had no doubt I'd be correct about.
My Palace prediction was the one I got completely wrong. I'm alright with that though given how thing actually turned out.
Overall, I'd say my predictions were pretty good. I got two exactly right, one about 90% correct and I'd say the top two prediction was at least 70-80% correct. Of my five predictions, I only got one completely wrong.
