It is often said there is no bedding in time, and no patience in football. Here are 20 kneejerk reactions based on each club's opening weekend showing.
Aston Villa: Paul Lambert's work is far from done - He needs to get busy in the transfer market, and relying on Darren Bent is not going to cut it.
Chelsea: Great start for Hazard, but their second half performance was less than impressive. Fernando Torres had just one shot, and the team need to do much better to create chances for him.
Liverpool: It already looks like mission impossible for Brendan Rodgers. Just how far did Kenny Dalglish set the club back?
Manchester City: Typical City, but in a new kind of way. With matchwinners all over the pitch, keeping them down will be harder than ever this season.
Manchester United: They may have Robin van Persie, but their midfield is still below par. This will continue to cost them in crunch matches.
Newcastle United: Newcastle look really strong. If they can balance the Europa League and keep Ba and Cisse firing, again don't rule out a push for fourth.
Norwich City: Oh dear, Norwich were shocking. Drastic improvement is required if they are to avoid relegation.
QPR: Forget a top 10 finish, go back to fighting relegation unless their defence is sorted out quickly.
Reading: Reading will give any one a tough game at home, we'll see if they can cut it away from home tonight at Stamford Bridge.
Southampton: Excellent performance, but no points. Their squad is full of talent and they should comfortably survive.
Swansea City: Michu- What a buy! If Michael Laudrup's team carry on like this then they could even top Brendan Rodgers' finish.
Stoke City: They may have spent less than in previous summers, but Stoke look just as tough to beat. Another mid-table finish beckons.
Tottenham: Spurs have messed up this summer by delaying their activity. They could have got a draw at St James Park, and with every point crucial they may well fall short, again.
Now these are simply kneejerk reactions to one game out of 38. We'll revisit these later in the season and again in May and see how they are holding up.
