The dawn of the new premiership season is upon us and this year we might have something special on the cards. Of course the usual battle at the top will be very exciting but there is potential for something more intriguing. This season we have three clubs that have come up that could easily still be in the league when May comes around.

On paper Birmingham and Wolves have solid squads, and with a little luck both teams should be able to compete to stay in the league. Burnley on the other hand don’t look as good on paper and they don’t have the same squad quality that the other two have, but they do have a solid record against other premiership sides from last seasons cup competitions.

Last season was a shock to many that two of the newly promoted teams managed to stay up, but looking at the quality of play it really was not such a shock. This is the main reason that it’s more than possible for all three teams to stay up this season. The EPL has many poor teams. Blackburn, Stoke, Bolton and Wigan will be fighting against the drop all season, and when you add to that my two favorite teams for the drop Portsmouth and Hull you then see why these new teams could easily stay outside the bottom three.

So what factors will stand out for the new boys?

Wolves will bring to the table the best young players from last seasons Championship, Wayne Hennessey, Michael Kightly and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, along with the young guns, comes new signing Kevin Doyle and unsung hero Karl Henry.

Birmingham has the most solid squad including future England No1 Joe Hart and new signing Christian Benítez.

Burnley has probably the best young manager in the game today and he’ll be looking for is new signing Steven Fletcher who signed from Hibs to be the player leading the line as the Clarets push for safety.

Do you think any of the newly promoted teams can survive in the Premier League this year?

As cheesy as it sound football is my life, I grew up in Dundee, and lived on Sandeman Street twice. On both occasions I could take 20 steps from my front door and touch a football stadium, Dens Park first, then Tannadice. I used to be able to watch most of the games at Dundee United from my house window. I support Celtic, but also follow many other teams, such as Notts County, Oxford, and Man Utd. Having moved across the pond for a new life on the west coast of Canada I took an interest in writing blogs on the beautiful game. I guess being in the UK I had the chance to get most things off my chest regarding football during trips to the pub or even the lunch time chats with friends. Moving here I lost that conduit and have been using my blogs as a way to get my point across and discuss (with myself) the hot topics in football.
