Premier League preview: where will your team finish this season?
Hull City and manager Steve Bruce face the uphill battle of keeping the club in the Premier League right from day one. Everyone expects us to head straight back down but there may yet be hope for the Tigers.
Bruce has recruited as well as can be expected on a tight budget and brought in some sound additions. It’s no secret we struggled for goals last season, however, I’m unsure if the additions of Danny Graham and Yannick Sagbo can really hit the goals we need.
A lot rests on the shoulders of Sone Aluko, who was arguably the best player in the Championship until he suffered an Achilles injury. Young Robbie Brady also has a big part to play having come on leaps and bounds the previous campaign, notching 13 assists.
Do I see three weaker squads on paper in the Premier League? Probably not, but stranger things have happened.
