I don’t know about you, but it feels like it’s never been away. The Football League returned a week ago and for many of us that meant nervous jitters throughout the Saturday afternoon. But even if your heart is with a club outside of the top flight, if you love football there is nothing like the Premier League to complete your weekend’s entertainment. Those with both BT and Sky sports had a cracking set of matches to enjoy, and those without got to revive their love/hate relationship with Match of the Day. Ah, mid-August, I do love you so!

Football-wise, those who tout the Prem as the best league in the world will have had a lot to crow about this weekend. Some excellent games, some superb goals, and drama.

Many of us expected Man Utd to hit the ground running with their new no-nonsense gaffer and the sting of last season still fresh in the minds. Theirs may be an unsettled and inexperienced side, but none of us saw Swansea rocking up to Old Trafford and snatching all three points. Only one of us even gave them a chance of a draw, the rest backed the home side, and many with the full ten points. The only side who were more positively backed were Arsenal, and look how close they came to fluffing it up against a Palace side that are scrapping with Burnley as bookies’ favourites to go down. And then there was Liverpool, or, to be fair, there was Southampton, a side so decimated it almost needed the UN to be called in, yet they gave the home side one hell of a game at Anfield.

And so to our first Punter of the Week of the season. As I said to someone this weekend, anyone who avoided backing Man Yoo with big points this weekend would do well, and so it proved. JB takes the first Amazon tenner of the season thanks to an excellent score of of 55. JB put just one point on a home win for the Red Devils – banana skin avoided – and followed this up with 10s on Arsenal and City, plus 8 on Spurs to win at West Ham. Yes, she lost 8 on Everton not getting the victory at Leicester, but the bonus of a couple of correct scores were enough to take her to the top of the League. Many congratulations, JB!

Stevemanics: I think our chances of taking 4th from Liverpool depend on who else we sign before the end of the window. Rojo should be a good signing but we still desperately need a top class CB and another CM, plus we could do with cover for the FB/WB slots – can’t be playing the likes of Young and Januzaj there, leaving the defence completely exposed (like it was against Swansea), especially while Carrick’s injured.

pubcarparkninja: Chelsea for me, they’ve bought very well this summer and though Man City are also looking very strong I think it may be Mourinho’s year once again. Look at that forward line the other night, Costa, supported by Hazard, Oscar, Schurrle (you can’t be serious) and Fabregas, mmmmm, tasty.
Top 4 for me:
1 Chelsea
2 Man City
3 Arsenal
4 Liverpool

I’m in two minds about Liverpool and Arsenal, IF Liverpool sign Falcao, then we could snatch 3rd. If all of Arsenals undoubted attacking talent perform and stay fit they could sneak 3rd. Man Utd could struggle for CL places once again and I can’t see Everton or Spurs threatening the top 4/5 this year. (20/08 11:30)

Ian: I think I voted for City – but actually, it’s going to be Chelsea isn’t it? (19/08 17:56)

Rob: Who voted for Arsenal in the poll? Surely that can’t be Ade..? (17/08 21:01)

Rob: Yeah, really tricky one this week. Personally, I am relieved I didn’t do an awful lot worse. Got zero scores and three results. Thankfully those three results were two tens and a four, so not bad all told… (17/08 21:00)
