IMO, they will be real contenders for the title. 1st or 2nd.
Because Moyes is not Ferguson and there will be a period of adjustment. Will the players respect the new manager? It's not easy replacing arguably one of the worlds best ever managers. Many thought Ferguson got the best out of a Utd side that needs money spent on it. Giggs, Scholes need replaced, Rooney looks unsettled. Ferdinand looks past it, Vidic injury prone.
Mourinho and Pellegrini are good managers who have signed some good players so are expected to win.
I said third. If third is good enough for the fans (who have been spoiled with success the last 20 years) then I think he will do better next year with new signings and his own players, however Arsenal have a nack of getting in the top 3/4 no matter the players they sign.
