New, comments

With Liverpool's season kicking off this weekend, can you predict what will happen in the 2015/16 season?

Last season was a bit of a mess for Liverpool, and it was one most fans never saw coming judging by last season's predictions. When the results came in, it turned out we were wrong. But a new season means another chance to predict what's about to happen, and maybe we our powers will be stronger this season. Without further ado, here's how The Liverpool Offside's writers see 2015/16 unfolding.

Chuck

Top eight in order: Chelsea, Arsenal (if Wenger buys a top outfield player otherwise third), Manchester City, Liverpool (heart prediction but head says fifth), Manchester United (a big signing or two will sway my head further for a top four spot for them), Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Southampton Crystal Palace
Three relegated teams: Norwich City, Leicester City, Watford
Premier League top scorer: Sergio Agüero
League Cup winner: Everton
FA Cup winner: Liverpool (if we finish fifth) or Manchester United (only if they finish fifth below Liverpool so they only qualify for the Europa League)
Europa League winner: Borussia Dortmund
Champions League winner: Bayern Munich
Bonus question: How far will Liverpool go in the Europa League and domestic cups? Quarter-finals in the Europa League, League Cup, and FA Cup.

Noel

Top eight in order: Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester United, Stoke City, Southampton
Three relegated teams: Norwich City, Watford, Sunderland
Premier League top scorer: Sergio Agüero
League Cup winner: Liverpool
FA Cup winner: Chelsea
Europa League winner: Fiorentina
Champions League winner: Barcelona
Bonus question: How far will Liverpool go in the Europa League and domestic cups? EL quarter-finals, League Cup victory, FA Cup semi-finals

Eliz

Top eight in order: Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool (like Chuck, my head also says fifth), Manchester United, Tottenham, Southampton, Stoke City
Three relegated teams: Watford, Sunderland, Leicester City
Premier League top scorer: Sergio Agüero; incidentally, aside from Agüero, no one who has won the Golden Boot in the last ten years still plays in the Premier League. Pick the striker you'd most like to see move on to a different league!
League Cup winner: Liverpool, because they'll spite us and win the lesser of the two domestic cups
FA Cup winner: Chelsea
Europa League winner: I don't even know who is in Europa League besides us, and it won't be us
Champions League winner: Bayern Munich, always and forever
Bonus question: How far will Liverpool go in the Europa League and domestic cups? Round of 16 Europa League, League Cup final, FA Cup semi-final

Nerf

Top eight in order: Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester Utd, Liverpool, Manchester City, Spurs, Stoke City, Everton
Three relegated teams: Sunderland, Aston Villa, Watford
Premier League top scorer: Sergio Agüero
League Cup winner: Newcastle
FA Cup winner: West Ham
Europa League winner: Marseille
Champions League winner: Bayern Munich
Bonus question: How far will Liverpool go in the Europa League and domestic cups? R16 in the Europa League and a domestic cup quarter final.

Steph

Top eight in order: Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Southampton, Everton
Three relegated teams: Aston Villa, Watford, Sunderland
Premier League top scorer: Christian Benteke (It's just before the season begins, and I am riding high on pre-season blind optimism. All in, baby!)
League Cup winner: Liverpool
FA Cup winner: Manchester City
Europa League winner: Arsenal? I don't know, we have no idea who is going to be in it when it starts to get fun, so I can't say. Forget it- Liverpool! I choose Liverpool.
Champions League winner: KF Skënderbeu Korçë of the Albanian Superliga (Their slogan: "The Korçë is strong with this one" - I'm assuming)
Bonus question: How far will Liverpool go in the Europa League and domestic cups? Well, apparently I have them down to win two of the three, so that should make for an entertaining season. To balance it out, let's assume they'll miss the treble due to a Raheem Sterling hat trick in the FA Cup final. Add in Christian Benteke's Golden Boot, and Liverpool are set for a wild ride.
