Predictions for 2017

No matter what is going on in the world, it’s nice to know there are some constants. For example, Sam Allardyce will always return to his beloved relegation battle.

The rest is uncertain- so here are my top predictions for 2017.

  1. Monaco to win Ligue 1

With the ‘new Thierry Henry’ up top with 18 year-old Kylian Mbappe feeding off Falcao who is back to his best, Monaco have racked up an incredible 75 league goals. With PSG stumbling and Balotelli inevitably going off the rails at Nice, the league is looking pretty for Leonardo Jardim’s exciting side.

2. Aguero to leave City

Let’s face it- Chelsea have already won and Sunderland are already relegated. So let’s make a tastier prediction and say that should Gabriel Jesus continue his impressive form, one of the Premier League’s greatest ever players will leave Manchester.


One of very few world class players – too good for the bench?


At 28, Sergio Aguero has little time to waste on the bench and with his unquestionable ability it is likely a move will happen, perhaps to a team that can deliver that elusive European trophy he undoubtedly deserves.

3. Bayern will stroll Bundesliga, but struggle in Europe

As per every season in recent history, Bayern Munich will be crowned champions without breaking a sweat. However under closer inspection, Ancelotti’s philosophy seems to be lost in translation in Germany.

Combined with an aging side, with Lahm and Alonso already deciding to hang up their boots at the end of the season, it seems neither Guardiola nor Ancelotti will be able to guide Bayern to European glory as of yet.

4. Trump to be impeached within a year.

Just for funsies.
