It is that time of year again, for what is turning into annual tradition on this blog: my Premier League prediction table. Last season’s attempt to predict who would finish where saw me correctly name five places, with another six guesses being one position away, as well as being accurate in picking City as FA Cup winners, QPR to be first in the Championship.
