Football is back! It's finally back! As such, its time to dive into some predictions that will be completely forgotten after the first set of results prove them to be completely meaningless. Unless they are somehow accurate at the end of the season, in which case I will be retiring from football journalism to become a full time Paul the Octopus impersonator. I'm pretty sure there's more money in that anyway.
West Ham have been real lucky this summer, taking advantage of so many different unknown factors to sign players of quality like Feghouli and Tore. Ever since Gary Neville left Valencia after a scintillating few months, Feghouli has been unable to forget his time there...
Okay, so let's get the final result against Newcastle out of the way first. Inexcusable, embarrassing, and in a tragic kind of way actually rather amusing given the plaudits that have been welcomed throughout the season. A draw, just a little draw, against one of the worst teams in the league was all that was needed to prove Spurs had been better than Arsenal.
And they lived happily ever after. That's how most Fairy Tales end. And for Leicester City fans, the buzz from Monday night's season topping result will live on for generations. A truly Hollywood ending to a season which has many commentators running out of superlatives to describe it.
There are many 'where it all went wrong' moments' - the last minute loss against struggling Newcastle, the failure to beat 10-man Arsenal or indeed the latest blow against West Brom. But ultimately, when Spurs went head-to-head with Leicester, they fell short, and perhaps that was the ultimate title test that Ranieri's men passed with flying colours.
Leicester City, Champions of England. It has a ring of authenticity to it that's been hard fought for and deeply merited. Whereas "Champions Spurs" - well, it just doesn't sound right. It sounds instead like cheap fiction; and, as long as the club and the fans retain their current losers' mindset, that's just how it will remain.
All the very best to the Foxes - we'll look forward to raising a celebratory glass to you, when you can finally call yourselves Champions.
It's important not to overstate the importance of England's friendly win over Germany on Friday evening. Yes, it was perceptibly a crystallising momen...
With all of this conducted by Mauricio Pochettino's rising star it's easy to dream of the title, to get swept away with the all the plaudits and wild predictions about how far this team can go - 'And they're only young' is often uttered at the end of such discussions. But the little bit of pessimism that still lurks in the back of my mind is only concerned about finishing in the top four...
Pochettino is at the right stage of his career, at the right club, with the right squad to make a history-making difference. He could be the next man at Chelsea, the man in the shadow at United, or THE man at Tottenham Hotspur. It doesn't even seem worth consideration.
For a club that prides itself on being at one with one of London's most deprived communities, there are a lot of facets to Spurs' new ground that are shameful.
Sure, the trophy will sit in Arsenal's dusty trophy cabinet for a year and fans will get 'Champions 16' on the back of their replica shirts, but next season, unless they bring in a centre back, holding midfielder and striker at least, they will slump back to their more familiar fourth place. That is, unless the other top sides fail to turn up once again.
It's been fairly easy to tell when there's a transfer window coming up over the last year or two - just keep an eye out for the slew of people crawling out of the woodwork to have a go at Emmanuel Adebayor. The Togolese striker should, by rights, be one of the top free agents that Premier League teams are looking to pick up this January...
Not all managers can afford to show Pochettino levels of patience, when some are constantly peering over their own shoulders and praying they don't lose three matches in a row. But Spurs aren't the most patient club in history, and the strong position they find themselves in is testament to their manager's bravery.
Arsenal are back. After 11 years without a Premier League title, the Gunners are finally in a position to challenge once more and return to the summit of English football. They're second in the table, the British press and television pundits are purring and it's only a matter of time before Arsene Wenger has his hands firmly on the trophy again, right? Wrong!
Right now Tottenham boast the longest unbeaten run in the league and a defensive record that cannot be bettered. Liverpool visit White hart Lane on Saturday under new boss Jurgen Klopp. Of course it would be very Spursy to be swept away by the tide of renewed Scouse optimism. But Spurs aren't Spursy anymore.
