(Based on what can realistically be expected - so I've not, for example, gone for Schalke for the European Cup even though in an ideal worldr that's who I'd want to win it.)

European Cup - Barcelona
UEFA Cup - Fiorentina

English Champions - Arsenal
Relegated from Prem - Derby, Fulham, Wigan
FA Cup - West Brom (although anyone but Portsmouth really)

Scottish Champions - Celtic
Scottish Cup - Aberdeen
Promoted to Prem - Hamilton Accies

Feel free to add other leagues etc. as you see fit...

European Cup - Liverpool. I would just enjoy AIATL with the face of a bulldog licking piss off a nettle arguing again that it's actually a rubbish competition anyway.

UEFA Cup - guess !

English Champions - Arsenal
FA Cup - don't mind, whoever deserves it most.
Relegated - Newcastle are the only team I really want to go down, whoever most deserving for the rest.

Scotland - That will be Rangers, or at worst not Celtic.

Other odds and ends....

Italian Champions - Inter
French Ligue 1 Relegated - Paris SG
La Liga Relegated - Athletic Bilbao

I'd like Manchester United to win the League and the Big Cup, but I wont be gutted if they don't. Unless they lose to Liverpool in the Champs League final, obv.

As for the rest of football, I'd titter a little if Newcastle went down, but again, I've better things to do with my time than worry about that. I hope Franchise don't go up. And I'm torn between wanting Bury to fail miserably and just continue existing outside my sphere of interest.

So, in conclusion:

NPL div 1 North: FC United of Manchester
NPL div 1 North play off winners: Curzon Ashton
President's Cup: FC United of Manchester
Manchester Premier Cup: FC United of Manchester

That'd be nice.

CL: any team not called Liverpool

UEFA Cup: any team not called Rangers

Prmeiership: Avram Grant winning the title would be the funniest thing ever

FA Cup: Barnsley

Relegated: either Newcastle or Sunderland to take the last spot, again for comedy value

SPL: take a wild guess, though it's not going to happen

we'll make it Tim. Only need a couple more wins to ensure safety I reckon. Ah, you mean the Millers don't you ?

European Cup - Schalke, then Barca, then anyone but Chelsea, Man Utd or Liverpool. Arseanl's ability to resist the lure of a millionaire will be increased if they can show success without such a person.
UEFA - Hamburg
League - Arse
Releagted - Newcastle, Birmingham and Derby
FA Cup - Anyone but Portsmouth
Championship - only hope here is that an ex-prem club gets relegated and Preston don't.
League One - Swansea then anyone but Leeds
L1 Relegation - all four teams being relegated for financial penalties - will maybe force the league to revisit their policy
L2 - Stockport, anyone but Franchise going up and Notts County surviing. Bury to go down.

Conference - Exeter going up, Altrincham going down

Conf N - Telford
Ryman - Wombles up
Unibond 1 N - FCUM
North east Counties - Scarborough Athletic

Bundesliga - Bremen

Ahem, Tom, you stopped too soon...

Conf - I'd like Aldershot to win it, and not just because they're going to
I'd like Burton to win the play offs, or possibly Cambridge, but not Torquay.
I can't see any of Droylsden, Stafford, or Northwich staying up, but I'd laugh a long hearty laugh if Weymouth joined them.
If one of Lewes or Eastbourne Borough are going to win the Conf South then I hope the other one fails to win the play offs (for the purely selfish reason that I've been to both their grounds, and the only point in someone new coming up is so that I can tick off another ground on my Facebook list). I similarly hope that Kettering don't get promoted from Conf North.

Not too sure about Div 4 relegation. I kinda like Wrexham, whereas I hate Mansfield, but perversely that means I'd rather the Welsh lot came down so that we have someone nice to play against. Bury is too far away, so I'd quite like Dagenham to come back to where they belong so I can stop for a curry in Borough Market on the way home, again.

CL - Arsenal

UEFA Cup - Sporting

Premiership - Arsenal

Relegated - As well as certs Derby, Fulham to play them next season, Newcastle for the fat man slipping on a banana skin comedy pratfall.

FA Cup - go on, guess

Promoted from D2 - Stoke ( as the least offensive of the likely champions) , WBA, Charlton as play-off winners

Auto Windscreens thingy - Grimsby by a 12-0 scoreline.
