    Put your money where your mouth is

    Time to man up people. We've been talking here and there for months about how things might go, time to make some IRONCLAD predictions and commit it to e-paper how you feel and what you think will happen. We will see after the season who is right.


    Prediction time, for the end of the season.


    Things to predict:

    1 - Where will we finish
    2 - Who will be our best player
    3 - If Stramaccioni survives his first full season
    4 - Who will be the most disappointing player



    I'll get us started:

    We will finish just outside of the CL places, with them going to Juventus, Milan, and either Napoli or Roma.
    Our best player will be Milito, closely followed by Sneijder
    Stramaccioni's first season will start off well with enthusiasm and vigour, but ultimately we will be found wanting (lack of quality, rather than any faul t of the manager). It will ultimately end disappointingly, but Stramaccioni will survive by the skin of his teeth as Moratti realizes that firing yet another manager without investing heavily in players won't make a difference
    The most disappointing player will be Ranocchia



    I will copy and paste all predictions into the head of the thread


    If anyone has any suggestions for additional predictions to be made, we can do that


    For example, how much money will we spend in January? If Stramaccioni is sacked, who will replace him? How many managers will we have? etc etc

    ---------- Post added at 10:16 ---------- Previous post was at 10:09 ----------

    Also, please, no bashing anyone else's opinions in this thread. Just post your own opinions/discuss others. But I dont want this to turn into a flame war




    PREDICTIONS!

    Things to predict:

    Third, behind Juve and Milan
    Sneijder
    Meaning can he survive his first season? If so YES
    Maybe Nagatomo. Not sure whom to put here as the most disappointing player I think won't play much. If he does then it will be Stankovic.

    1 - 4th, 1.Juve 2.Milan 3.Roma
    2 - Sneijder and Paulinho (i hope)

    For money we'd have to come up with a better system of measuring how accurate people's predictions are. Things like best player, most disappointing player, might be a bit harder to quantify.

    Is this about personal pride so that I'm not even "allowed" to hope that the team or the candidate for most disappointing player will prove me wrong? ^^

    I will wait for the transfer window to close before I start predicting. It's too premature for me to type now.
