So the new English Premier League got underway last night. Who’s going to be there or thereabouts for the title this year? Is it going to be the same two teams fighting for the title or is someone else going to step up?

Who do you think will win the premier title this year? Select one team in the poll.

So that’s the winners…but what about the losers? Who do you think will be relegated at the end of this season? You can choose up to three teams in the poll.

Good luck to whichever team you are supporting this season!

I’ve done a few Word Associations and Places Associations with you, and several other UK specific Places Association which, as the title suggests, is all about places in the UK. i.e. cities, countries, towns etc.

So instead of throwing words at you and responding with the first word that comes into your mind, today I’m going to throw names of places in the UK at you, and this time I want you to respond with whatever comes into your mind first about that place.

So here goes…cities

  1. Margate
  2. Carlisle
  3. Prestwick
  4. Taunton
  5. Llandudno
  6. Milton Keynes
  7. Forfar
  8. Penzance
  9. Blackburn
  10. Crieff

So how did you get on with those words? Did you find it easy? Did your answers surprise you or were they just as you expected?

Well here’s my responses to my questions:

  1. Only Fools and Horses
  2. Border
  3. Airport
  4. Tennis
  5. Holiday
  6. Roundabouts
  7. Bridie
  8. Train
  9. Phone call
  10. Hydro

Were any of your answers the same as mine? Did you understand all my answers? Did any of your own answers surprise you?

I’ve said in previous word association posts that I find I get a bit stressed when I’m doing them as I put a lot of pressure on myself not to over think my answers! Are you relaxed when you do them or do you find it stressful too?

I still believe that when we respond to any of these words or place association games, with the first things that come into our minds, our answers tell us a lot about our emotional state and our true feelings about a place.

Bearing all this in mind, review your answers, does my theory hold true?
