With the new Premier League season upon us, what will be in store for the best domestic league in the world?
No doubts the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City will be in the running for the crown. I also predict that a rejuvenated Manchester United side with Louis van Gaal will recreate the form of Sir Alex Ferguson's era - even with defeat today.
Another rollercoaster season
As an avid Spurs fan, having seen the highs and lows of previous seasons, it's difficult to say what is in store.
Its been a relatively quiet summer break for the boys down at White Hart Lane on the transfer front. No glamour signings, just good old-fashioned hard working players in the form of Ben Davies and Eric Dier signing for the club.
The difference this time round will be in the form of the man in the dugout, Mauricio Pochettino. Having guided Southampton to an impressive Premier League finish last term and getting the best out of his young side, will he be able to recreate the magic at Tottenham?
Pochettino makes his mark
I'm optimistic that with time, which unfortunately Mr Levy doesn't seem to have much of, Pochettino can get Tottenham playing attractive football and getting the performances out of such players as Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado, who had turbulent first spells with the club.
With time, I feel that Spurs will again challenge for the Champions League spots, but for me they will most likely finish sixth. However, they have the right man in the hot seat to keep building in such a way that Spurs fans expect.
A tough first game away at West Ham will give Spurs fans an idea of what lies ahead, but suffice to say it will be a roller-coaster regardless.
Here's to a good opening day to all football fans of the English Premier League - and to Pochettino getting a chance to make his mark on the mighty Spurs!
