Manchester United, not long agorepparttar single dominant force in England, have not had things all their own way in recent times, culminating in a 3rd place finish last season andrepparttar 148334 need therefore to qualify for this seasonís Champions League.

Sir Alex Fergusonís side may have failed to impress last term Ė culminating in an empty trophy cabinet Ė but they have quality all overrepparttar 148335 park to make a serious impression inrepparttar 148336 title race this time around. The likes on Ryan Giggs, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Roy Keane and Rio Ferdinand can keep them on course, while in Wayne Rooney, they have a genuine star player who can makerepparttar 148337 difference inrepparttar 148338 big games especially.

Wolves finished last season unbeaten in 18 matches and I fancy them to push Norwich allrepparttar way this time around.

As Sunderland showed, it can take a year for a relegated team to come to terms withrepparttar 148333 drop before building a serious title challenge, and Wolves are now ready to push on.

Glenn Hoddle has enjoyed success at this level before with Swindon and has got his team playing some attractive, attacking football.

Carl Cort, who made such a slow start to his Molineux career, looks dangerous again while Kenny Miller may miss plenty of chances but is good for 20 goals.

They can expect a constant supply of chances fromrepparttar 148334 excellent Seol hi-Kyeon, perhapsrepparttar 148335 best technical player inrepparttar 148336 Championship, who has been outstanding in 2005.

The biggest question mark is overrepparttar 148337 Wolves defence, which kept only four clean sheets in that 18-match unbeaten sequence, and that was a frailty which caused them to draw far too many games.

If Hoddle can findrepparttar 148338 right man to play alongside Joleon Lescott, and keep his full-backs fit, then Wolves will be right up there.

Ipswich have gone out to 14/1 after losing Darren Bent, Tommy Miller, Kelvin Davis and Shefki Kuqi and that is probably a fair price for Joe Royle's new-look squad. Losing their four best players doesnít inspire confidence.

Preston, who like Wolves were excellent overrepparttar 148339 second half of last season, could be interesting outsiders at 18/1 and I can see them reachingrepparttar 148340 play-offs again, while Sheffield United, Leeds, Derby and Reading haven't done enough to suggest they can makerepparttar 148341 leap intorepparttar 148342 top two. is a large new E-zine with Expert Sports Betting-Gambling Previews, advice & tips.
