Take a look at all of those season previews and put your thinking caps on. As Simon the Avenger proved last season, he's a tough title holder to knock off his perch. After some review and revision, here are this season's categories:

2. European qualifiers - (Choose #2-#5) (4 points for each correct answer plus one bonus point for correct order)
3. Relegated sides - (3 points for each of the three correct plus one bonus point for correct order)
4. Promoted sides - (3 points for each of the three correct plus one bonus point for correct order)
5. League Cup winner (6 points)
6. League Cup losing finalist (2 points)
7. FA Cup winner (8 points)
8. FA Cup losing finalist (2 points)
9. Europa League winner (6 points)
10. Champions League winner (8 points)
11. La Liga champions (4 points)
12. Serie A champions (4 points)

18. First player to get a second yellow card for a silly offense (2 points)
19. First manager to get a "vote of confidence" from his board (2 points)
20. First manager to get sacked in the Premiership (2 points)
21. First two managers to get into a touchline scrap (2 points each)

You'll notice some new, fun categories courtesy of Gooner this season, which we hope will add a bit of excitement to the game. Please try to get your entries in to me either here or via email ( by Saturday morning at 7:45am EST. As usual, I'll allow any changes that you like to the first 14 categories until the end of the Transfer Window at the end of the month.
