Welcome to part four of the 7500 to Holte pre-season roundtable. Today we broaden our footballing horizons and take a look at what’s going on elsewhere. Why are we doing this? Well, being a Villa fan is hard, so I don’t really blame anyone needing an escape from the misery that has engulfed B6 in recent years.
Once again, leave your thoughts in the comments below!
Who will win the Premier League?
Alex: Chelsea, again.
Elis: Yeah probably Chelsea again.
Herbert: Manchester City.
James: Manchester United - they've got no excuses anymore!
Robert: Spurs. This’ll be the year they put it all together.
Who will win the Champions League?
Alex: Real Madrid, again. There are only a few teams capable of beating them. None will.
Elis: Boringly, Real Madrid again.
Herbert: Bayern Munich.
James: I can't look past Real Madrid. Great manager, great squad. It's theirs to lose, certainly.
Robert: Real Madrid.
What team outside England are you most interested in watching this year?
Alex: I’m going to follow Union Berlin, who finished fourth in Germany’s second tier, this year, so that should be neat.
Elis: Honourable mentions to Aberdeen and Vancouver, but RB Leipzig. They play great football, they qualified for the Champions League, and they make people angry. It’s perfect!
Herbert: A.C. Milan.
James: AC Milan - follow us at the AC Milan Offside!
Phil: DC United -- the end of RFK. But I'm a total homer.
Robert: DC United as well. I hate RFK more than I’ve hated any venue I’ve ever been to ever. That means that I’ve never followed my local MLS team. But that all changes when they open the new place a year from now, and I figure I probably should get on the bandwagon a bit before they do.
