And our 33/1 to win it (not promotion, but to win it) is short, isn't it? Or are those prices pretty typical?

As for this season, it was indeed miserable, and I'm another who has barely bothered to go since the turn of the year. Worst season though? I might have gone to more games, but our last season at Elm Park, where we were relegated to League One with barely a whimper, felt much worse to me. There wasn't even a hint we were better than 24th, where we lost 5 of our first 6 games, and 15 of our last 17. Cup runs were alright mind you.

Edit - slightly boring aside, but I didn't know until reading about that 97/98 season on Wiki, that the Martin O'Neill that Tommy Burns signed as one of the magnificent seven or eight who came in and did fcuk all to keep us up is the same O'Neill who is now manager of Northern Ireland.


Isn't that Michael O'Neil?


Correct. No wonder I'm confused when I'm calling him Martin. :)

It might not be just you, but if you look at them, their faces are different.

No playoffs and playoff final then? Or will that come the year after? :wink:

Sheff Weds ended the season very nicely. If I was to pick one from the bottom half to have a good season, it'd be them.

Obvs missing Swansea and the PO winners in those odds. Would have to think whoever else comes up would be favourites to go back down

If you're interested William Hill are offering 25-1 against Reading being promoted (50-1 to win league).
