THE OLD GUARD While the TFS A table has changed in the last 4 seasons, a number of top-flight stalwarts remain. shiftee, he of back-to-back-to-back championships, will look to complete the unprecedented 4-peat as he returns to CSKA Moscow. Zikry struggled at the beginning of Season 4 at the helm of Aston Villa, but found his form late on. If he can continue to improve on that run, he will surely have a chance to claim the TFS A crown for himself. They will be challenged by, among others, juanchoCT14 who takes the reins of Sunderland this season, his 5th in Serie A. The other members of the "Big-5" have been mercurial in recent seasons to say the least. Broncos218 and Werder Bremen finished 5th and 7th the past two seasons, but a late run at the end of Season 4 could see the proud club back to the top. Meanwhile, RedAL925 takes over at TSG Hoffenheim, looking to improve on his first top 3 finish ever in Serie A. THE REGULARS Friz and Udinese had a breakout first season in the top flight. He now takes over at a talented Spartak Moscow side, where he will most certainly challenge for a championship. HokieNYC and Stade Rennes have the potential to finish high in the table, but will need to get early results to do so. THE NEW GUARD The three newly-promoted sides to the TFS A are no pushovers. CxMacx10 and Wolverhampton clinched the Serie B crown last season, and having made the Coppa final, will be a force to be reckoned with in the top flight. rschwep and FC Koln is no joke either, and will be a tough out this season as well. But the storyline of Season 5 is the return of Cimmy24 to the mountain top. Taking the reins at Borussia Monchengladbach, Cimmy will try to make a splash and make Serie A a permanent home. THE REST OF THE FIELD mustang20241 at Corinthians and bigox1337 at Stoke City were able to clinch safety last season, but will need to improve in what is arguably the most talented Serie A field ever.
