Quietly confident that we won't struggle like we have in the past few seasons. I don't think we'll pull up too many trees but I think 14th-18th with less looking behind us is very much achievable.

18th

Just about comfortably above relegation all season, less scary than last season, but enough of a threat to keep us slightly on our toes.

I just think our home firm will see us comfortably mid table. We just look so quick with lots of movement. A couple of additions and we could be even better.

Current squad Mid table 12th to 14th.

Should a couple of quality loan signing's come in before the deadline we could push for a top half finish.

We'll definitely have a couple in. Probably not by this weekend but next week when things start to move before deadline day.

I hope so, often one of the first things to go when a team gets in a slump is movement and that nice quick incisive passing that goes with it. The young committed squad should help maintain it.

I reckon, teams that will definitely finish above us:

Cardiff
Derby
Fulham
Leeds
Boro
Stoke
Swansea
West Brom

Teams that will finish below us:
Barnsley
Charlton
Luton
Millwall
Wigan

So we'll be in amongst this lot.
Brentford
Bristol City
Brum
Blackburn
Huddersfield
Hull
Forest
Preston
QPR
URZZZZ
Sheffield wed

But who bloomin knows anything these days and trying to pick any sort of order out of it..... not a clue. Alphabetical seems as good as anything. I'll take 19th and a good giggle at Leeds as they balls it up at the end of the season again.

7th-9th.....Looking good at the back.....midfield looking like it has a bit more steel and understanding and just need a striker to find his shooting boots...
No reason why we can't achieve this.....the way we break forward looks wonderful to watch at times...For the first time in a couple of seasons I am really really positive.

If we start badly we could very quickly find ourselves battling it out with Barnsley et. al. With a young squad, losing a few early games can knock confidence and create pressure. On the other hand, get a few good early results and be sitting comfortably in mid-table after 10 games or so, and we could go from strength to strength. In this context, an opening home game against Sheffield Wednesday looks like a very important game.

I’d be surprised if we finished top half tbh. Looking back to last season there were teams like Brentford and Swansea who look far better on paper than we do now that finished around about 11th/12th - and they had players like Maupay, McBurnie, James, Konsa and Behrami who had huge seasons for them

I’m not sure Olise, Loader and McIntyre are at that level yet. Would love to be proven wrong

Head says 14th to 16th.

Heart says - if all the stars align, the youngsters step up, and the addition of an in-form goal scorer and a Lewis Baker type midfielder - 6th.

I'm genuinely interested in hearing an explanation for how our midfield has more steel.
