Final season: 1st, 90 factors | High Scorer: Aleksandar Mitrovic (43)

The Cottagers cruised to Championship glory final season, taking part in some very good soccer and scoring 106 targets in 46 league matches.

In Aleksandar Mitrovic, that they had a relentless goalscorer who netted a document 43 occasions, however the important thing query now’s whether or not the Serb can lastly take that type with him into the Premier League.

Final season was: Unimaginable. Even within the troublesome matches, Fulham had been thrilling to look at.

Mitrovic had a season that went down within the document books and can stay on within the lore of Fulham.

Nevertheless, it is going to imply far much less in the event that they get despatched straight again down once more and this season will likely be about utilizing that historic marketing campaign as a springboard for the longer term, somewhat than a pleasant little reminiscence in an in any other case forgettable decade for the membership.

This season will likely be: Essential to the membership’s future trajectory.

Having yo-yoed again to the Championship twice within the final 5 years, this season is totally important to the way forward for the membership.

If Fulham want to be reestablished as a Premier League mainstay, as they had been via the late 2000s and early 2010s, this try to remain afloat would be the key.

If Tony Khan and the American possession fail to maintain Fulham within the Premier League, they have to give manner and discover new management, as a result of the definition of madness is doing the identical factor time and again and anticipating a distinct outcome.

Our key participant is: Mitrovic. For all of the speak about Fulham’s buildup and the way electrical it was final season, he was the important thing cog within the assault.

The Serbian was unplayable for lengthy stretches of the Championship season, however he has didn’t seize Premier League defenders in the identical manner.

Twice now, Mitrovic has been as an alternative swallowed up by the central defensive expertise within the English high flight and if he fails to carry out on the highest stage but once more, this Fulham crew will go proper again down.

There are many questions elsewhere on the pitch for the membership, and loads of gamers who will likely be essential to the crew’s success or failure, however no person has the affect on the squad’s efficiency like Mitrovic.

If he can’t make it occur this 12 months, he by no means will, and the membership will fall again into the Championship doldrums.

Will Harry Wilson fireplace within the Premier League? Sure, there’s little question in my thoughts.

Harry Wilson will likely be one of many crew’s greatest gamers this season and his service will give Mitrovic the possibility to show whether or not he belongs within the Premier League or not.

You have got seen him blossom not solely along with his membership play but in addition his nationwide crew, which have been particularly electrical over the previous 12-18 months, and the event is obvious.

Wilson is an on a regular basis participant on this squad and he’ll carry out whether or not the crew stays up or falls again down. Search for a seven-goal, 13-assist haul from the Welshman.

We’ll end: sixteenth. I really imagine there are worse groups within the league than Fulham.

The Whites – once more – have defensive points, however in my thoughts, the opposite promoted golf equipment Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest are objectively worse in some ways, and even the likes of Everton and Southampton might arguably be weaker as nicely.

There are sufficient unhealthy groups within the backside third that they need to be capable of keep up. It is going to be a battle, and the enterprise completed this summer season has been mediocre at greatest, however we must always get one other crack on the Premier League.

It would take a number of years of wrestling on the backside earlier than a basis might be established.

Liverpool will end: Second, however will once more be a risk within the cup competitions, and there’s all the time the superb probability that the Reds capitalize on any slips by Metropolis this season.

It isn’t essentially a 1st and 2nd proper now, however as an alternative a 1a and 1b.

One piece of recommendation for visiting followers: Benefit from the ambiance! Fulham followers are fairly welcoming and know their place within the league and the sport.

It is going to be an fulfilling expertise regardless of the outcome, so take within the native pub scene and banter with the house followers within the floor.

Fulham supporters are out to have a enjoyable day whether or not the crew wins or loses, so that you may as nicely be too.

After a quick stint away from the Premier League, Bournemouth are again, this time managed by ex-Fulham boss Scott Parker.

In former Liverpool man Dominic Solanke, the Cherries have an thrilling striker of their ranks, however like Mitrovic, can he succeed within the high flight in opposition to far superior defences?

Time will inform.

Final season was: A slog! The Championship is demanding, however fortuitously, Scott Parker and the gamers bought the job completed and we in the end achieved our intention of promotion.

This season will likely be: A check, an enormous check. The hope is survival and nothing else. End seventeenth and we’ll be delighted.

Our key participant is: Dom Solanke. Thirty targets in complete final season, he’s our predominant man.

Not solely did he discover his scoring boots, however his link-up play and pure graft is excellent. Once more, we’ll want Dom to be bang at it if we’re to have a profitable marketing campaign.

Would you prefer to see Nat Phillips again this season? Completely. We presently solely have three centre-backs on the membership for starters!

Having misplaced Cahill, Ibsen-Rossi and Phillips (for now) we’re brief in that space. No matter that, Nat was enormous for us come the enterprise finish of final season.

A monster within the air and we noticed essential management qualities, too.

We’ll end: My head says bottom-three, my coronary heart says seventeenth. All the time comply with your coronary heart.. seventeenth!

Liverpool will end: Second for me. So much is determined by Nunez and the way Liverpool offers with the lack of Mane, however I simply really feel Man Metropolis can have an excessive amount of once more.

One piece of recommendation for visiting followers: Loads of pubs for away followers, however the ones nearest the bottom are usually house followers solely.

Plan accordingly, benefit from the south coast and its superb shed!

Nottingham Forest – Cooper’s males might be entertaining

Final season: 4th, 80 factors | High Scorer: Brennan Johnson (19)

After 23 lengthy years, Forest discover themselves again within the Premier League, with many tipping them to be a shock crew in 2022/23.

Supervisor Steve Cooper is famend for enjoying good soccer, which ought to make them entertaining to look at, whereas there may be Liverpool curiosity after the summer season signings of Neco Williams and Taiwo Awoniyi.

Final season was: For a era of Nottingham Forest followers one of the best one among their lives.

After making their worst begin for 108 years, the discuss was of relegation not promotion, however Steve Cooper reworked the soccer membership and accomplished the fairytale at Wembley.

This season will likely be: Troublesome however in the end profitable. Anticipate Forest to battle early on amid a tricky run of video games as new signings mattress in.

The fixtures ease after 5 video games, and assuming followers and the proprietor stays affected person, the Reds ought to stand up the desk and keep away from relegation.

Our key participant is: Brennan Johnson. He had 16 targets and 9 assists final season, and on the age of 21, is Wales’ inheritor obvious to Gareth Bale.

Clearly, lots can go incorrect, however given his age, ceiling and taking part in fashion, he has the potential to play for Liverpool or Man Metropolis in two or three years, like Jack Grealish.

Are you pleased with the signing of Neco Williams? Sure, for certain.

I believe £17 million is lots, and if he was going to play right-back there could be worries defensively, however given he will likely be a wing-back and already hyperlinks up with good buddy Johnson for Wales, there may be loads of trigger for optimism.

One good season and his worth will enhance markedly.

We’ll end: I’ll go for fifteenth. It actually appears like there’s a cut-off level inside the league the place seven groups look inferior to the remaining.

The promoted groups can have it powerful in fact, however Leeds, Southampton, Brentford, and above all Everton, look to affix them in a mini-league on the backside.

Liverpool will end: Second. Haaland absolutely improves Metropolis, whose solely fear is a scarcity of depth exterior their first 15 or 16 gamers, however they nonetheless have time to handle that.

Liverpool will push all of them the best way and will likely be manner forward of whoever comes third, however do Diaz and Nunez cowl the sale of Mane right away?

I’m unsure, however it will likely be an ideal battle once more.

One piece of recommendation for visiting followers: The prepare station is a 20-minute stroll from the bottom with loads of pubs alongside the best way, however most are strictly house followers solely.

It’s higher to enter town centre – 5 minutes stroll the opposite manner from the station the place there are intensive choices for food and drinks.

Parking across the floor may be very laborious to search out for many who drive, given the situation of the stadium.
