Premier League Predictions? WAGNH has 'em, Pt. II

This does not [fun]ing slip now.

Steve Bardens

Shall we continue with our predictions for the upcoming season? I think we shall.

While we opened this year's series with a disturbing look at our staffer's predicted league tables, Round 2 delves deeper into the minds of our panelists. We're getting a little personal here. Heroes, zeroes, golden boots, shite managers and the one, the only Diego Costa - this, my friends, is next-level prophesying.

Enjoy - or, you know, mock - our picks and then get to work on your own list in the comments section. Oh, and don't forget to check out Part I if you haven't already.

  • Jack: Robin van Persie

Transfer of the Season

  • Stephen: Diego Costa
  • Tim: Alexis Sanchez
  • Peezy: Diego Costa
  • Aidan: Alexis Sanchez

  • Graham: Diego Costa
  • Kevin: Cesc Fabregas
  • Jack: #POGBA

Flop of the Season

  • Stephen: Adam Lallana

  • Aidan: Romelu Lukaku
  • Jake: In terms of value, Adam Lallana. Also bad: Enner Valencia

Chelsea Player of the Season

  • Stephen: Thibaut Courtois
  • Tim: Eden Hazard
  • Peezy: Eden Hazard
  • Aidan: Cesq
  • Jake: Willian - Ted Knutson over at StatsBomb convinced me that he's sneakily the best two-way attacking midfielder in the league.
  • Graham: Eden Hazard
  • Kevin: Eden Hazard
  • Jack: Nemanja Matic

Diego Costa - Over/Under 15 Goals

  • Stephen: Over by Xmas
  • Tim: Over
  • Peezy: Over (all competitions)
  • Aidan: Absolutely
  • Jake: Well over

League Other Than the Prem to Watch

  • Tim: A-League, naturally
  • Peezy: Champions?
  • Aidan: Scottish Championship (Rangers, Hearts and Hibs)
  • Jake: Eredivisie
  • Graham: Serie A
  • Kevin: MLS. Not the best quality, but still entertaining.
  • Jack: Scottish Championship - Hearts, Hibs and Rangers? An absolute beauty.

Rio Ferdinand or Joey Barton?

  • Stephen: Shoot me.
  • Tim: Anyone's better than Rio.
  • Peezy: Ignored.
  • Aidan: Joey
  • Jake: Shaun Wright-Phillips
  • Graham: Rio de Janeiro. Definitely.
