The parade is over, a city has celebrated... the next challenge for Cardiff City is to make sure the Premier League campaign is more successful than last time around. Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock has already thrown down the gauntlet by declaring any side can feel confident of beating any other, once you take out the top six. That was amply demonstrated by the final 2017-18 table which saw little Burnley finish in seventh. Warnock and and Vincent Tan are each using the Clarets as the model for Cardiff to follow, a side who lack real stardust, but who punch above their weight because of the collective sum of the parts. The bookies, predictably, have Cardiff installed as red-hot favourites to be relegated. But are there three teams, or more, Warnock's Championship aces can finish above in the top flight? We will have a clearer picture come August 11 when the new season kicks off and we know who has strengthened best in the summer transfer window... and, indeed, if there are significant … [Read more...] about The teams Cardiff City can look to finish above in Premier League
Cardiff City defied the odds to gain promotion into the promised land of the Premier League under Neil Warnock this season. Having been written off by bookmakers and pundits alike, the Bluebirds took the Championship by storm and clinched the all-important second automatic promotion spot on the final day of the campaign to spark wild celebrations across the Welsh capital. Warnock hailed his eighth promotion as his greatest ever achievement in football, but it seems he'll have to prove his doubters wrong all over again next season. Following the conclusion of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign, Sky Bet have offered odds on the fortunes of 19 sides confirmed for next season, with the final team still to be determined through the Championship's play-offs. Using the odds they've given, here's how they think the table will look next season... Predicted Premier League 2018-19 table 1 Man City 2 Liverpool 3 Manchester United 4 Chelsea 5 Tottenham 6 Arsenal 7 Leicester 8 Everton 9 Wolves … [Read more...] about How the final Premier League table is supposed to look next year
Proud Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes his team’s record-breaking season may never be bettered after the Premier League champions signed off with a last-gasp 1-0 win at Southampton. Substitute Gabriel Jesus’s 93rd-minute lob – virtually the last kick of the season at St Mary’s – ensured City became the first English top-flight team to amass 100 points. Guardiola’s utterly dominant side also set new records for most wins, most away wins, most goals scored, best goal difference and biggest league-winning margin.

It’s massive. One hundred points is magnificent.” Arsenal finally earned their first away points of 2018 at the eighth attempt as they beat Huddersfield 1-0 in the last match of Arsene … [Read more...] about Manchester City records may never be beaten, says Pep Guardiola, after Premier League champions reach 100 points
Nevermind the flip-flops, put the boot in on the bookmakers with a final-day Premier League treble. It’s pretty much sombreros all round today, with just two meaningful fixtures really - and then only if you can see 18/1 Brighton winning at Anfield. Throw in the looming FA Cup and Champions League finals, plus a World Cup, and the air is rich with the smell of bigger fish, gently frying. History hints there’s money to be made if we can tune in to the relaxed vibe. Look back at the last 10 ‘final Sunday’ programmes in the Prem and a goals-galore bias is obvious in the numbers for ‘over 2.5 goals’, ‘over 3.5’ and ‘both sides score’. An 'anytime scorer' roll-up could be the answer. First up, take Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ‘anytime’ at 19/20 when Arsenal go to Huddersfield. The Gabon striker has found his feet now, and the safe-at-last Terriers might have lost a bit of their bite. Leg two is Sadio Mane … [Read more...] about Betting Spy tips for Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham in Premier League season finale
