    I say the U-20′s make it to the QF’s of the WC. They will qualify this time around.

    Stu won’t be back until mid september’

    Dempsey scores 13 goals in the prem this year.

    I could see Conor Doyle signing with MLS. Does he really want to be another Mike Grella.

    Henley in my book is Welsh. Therfore I will not comment on him.

    I think Lichaj will make either RB or LB his own this season.

    Guzan will be used in cup competitons until Given makes some horrible blunders. I say Guzan is Villa’s starter by Christmas.

    I say Everton finishes hogher than Liverpool, adn Howard finishes one of the top GK’s again.
