Back for the start of the Premier League season, The Drop Zone gives the full rundown on what was a pretty tightly packed offseason. We chat about the effects of the World Cup on players and teams, the oddity of the new, shorter transfer window, and the lack of planning that seemed to dominate the business done by many of the teams in the league. We talk about some of the major player and manager moves, and what those implications are for the upcoming season. Finally, we give our predictions for the bottom 3 and top 6.
