    Will they, or will Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd dominate things for decades to come?

    I'm sure they will especially if someone injects enough cash. Just look at Chelsea, they were rarely in the top 3 before but look at them now

    Reading will get exponentially better every season until the whole world implodes because of how good they are. :p

    I'd say yes, but I expect it will take some financial revolutions to bring it about (the Premiership collapsing under its own huge weight probably).

    West Ham will win it this year.

    I remember confidently telling everyone that would listen West Ham would easily make Europe this season. Oops. :o

    Portsmouth have a good chance, big money backer and not doing too shabby even now.

    Winning the title though? It's a big step.

    Lol, painful mistake. I'm not a West Ham supporter, in fact quite the opposite end of the table, but I think it's a real shame to loose such a club to relegation.

    Probably sounds a bit biased, but villa? Great manager, decent enough players, tons of financial backing, great history.. Can it be rekindled? :)

    Same, I think they're an all round decent club and I was delighted when they got promoted again, apart from that **** Reo Coker.

    My mind wouldn't be able to comprihend it, and the whole world may just implode. ;)

    But seriously, It's possible, as is anything but I think if it does happen it will be in a very long time. Winning the premiership isn't just about having a decent manager, decent players and a sound financial backing, it's about knowing how to go the distance, believing you can win, and wanting it more than anyone else.

    Chelsea are a little odd here, becuase really they did buy the title, but they were a decent team before and could cause many top teams problems.

    I can't see another club winning the title in the next few years, without a Chelski type backer.

    So do Middleborough at the moment but winning the league, that'd be pretty laughable

    Newcastle will - when we have a full, non injured squad that is. :)

    Personally, I don't think they will for quite a while. If it was down to the passion of support then i think they would and some of the current top 3/4 would be near the bottom, tbh.

    How do you measure passion?
