David James Really Goes Against The Grain With His Premier League Predictions

David James, in case you didn't know, is still playing football. He now stands between the posts for Iceland team IBV, which is managed by former teammate of his Hermann Hreidarsson.

This season he'll also be working as an analyst for BT Sport and today he offered up his opinions on how the Premier League table will look at the end of the season.

The top three is pretty reasonable but after that it gets a little unusual. There's possibly a little bit of bias left over from his old Liverpool days as he thinks they'll finish fourth ahead of Arsenal and Spurs.

By far, that's not the most outside the box prediction though. Spurs, despite having signed Nacer Chadli, Paulinho, Etienne Capoue and Roberto Soldado will drop to eight, while Newcastle are going to finish above Spurs despite only having signed Loic Remy and Olivier Kremen. That's just a jump of nine places from Newcastle's final position last season.


He also believes Everton are going to have some serious problems under Roberto Martinez and will drop a whole then places to sixteenth. Norwich's big signings will also be for nowt as they're going to be relegated after finishing in eighteenth (a seven place drop for them).

We look forward to many more off-the-wall opinions from James this season.
