With the new Premier League season finally set to kick-off on Saturday afternoon, the long road to success or failure come May begins.
Last season threw up some of the most dramatic stories the English top flight has ever seen - and none greater than Manchester City's last-gasp title victory over Manchester United.
Now, four months on from that incredible day, we ask what has changed ahead of the 2012-13 campaign and whether that will have an effect on the destination of the title.
Will Roberto Mancini's side find the pressure of retaining their title too much to bear, or will they flourish after finally sealing a first top flight win since 1968?
They will certainly face tougher competition from rivals United this time around, with the Red Devils having added the attacking talent of Shinji Kagawa and Robin van Persie to their ranks.

Chelsea have also been busy in recruitment terms, with the likes of Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and Oscar providing a boost after their Champions League success last term.
Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal and Newcastle are expected to scrap it out for the remaining Champions League places but a push for the title may not be beyond them.
Spurs and the Reds both begin the season boosted by the arrival of new managers, whilst the Magpies and Gunners have bought impressively.
So, who do you think will win the 2012-13 Premier League title? Do Manchester City now have the necessary experience to keep their closest rivals at bay? Or will Manchester United return to the top of the pile following the acquisition of Van Persie? Can Chelsea's spending take them to the top? Or will there be a surprise winner this year?
