    An optimistic 21st and doubt we will be out of the bottom 10 all season.
    Feel free to prove me wrong and someone remind me I was completely wrong at the end of next season.
    We should surprise one or two teams and may get totally outclassed and outplayed by others.
    Time for Paul Warne to show some man management skills and try to keep confidence as high as possible when results start to go against us.
    Time for a little patience from supporters as well.

    I think Paul Warne has already shown plenty of man management skills, in fact I will go as far as to say that's probably his greatest strength. I agree he'll probably need to excel in that area next season though.

    Don't get me wrong Casper, I will love it if we finish 21st but I just don't see it. I predicted 13th last season and was way off it. No matter what Warney earned his stripes for me and I shall not criticize him again. Good L1 manager and now proven. Championship will be so different and he will be competing with the same enthusiasm I'm sure. Unfortunately, that won't be enough in this league. Says me who was so wrong last year. Hope I'm wrong again.

    The thing that bothers me, is that the folk on here who predict high league placings, are the first to rant when it doesnt work out how they wanted.
    We will be , by far the smallest club next season. It will require a minor miracle to stay up, and we used one of those up last season. I'm not going to outright predict relegation, but it will be incredibly tough.

    So difficult to predict. Think we will have a different mind set this season and should start with a reasonably settled side. How we start might be important to our long term position. We have tended to start very slow which doesnt help confidence. Don't think we need big money signings but we need key signings in the right areas. Can Wartne come up trumps again like he did with Towell, Rodak, Emmanuel, Moore. Smith. If he can we will have a decent chance. I think that warne is no duffer and will have learnt a lot from the time he was in this division with us last time. Will he be able to correct the problems we had last time. We shall see. He surprised us last season maybe he can do it this season as well. It wont be for the want of trying. Good luck Paul.

    Yes it will be tough itís the championship, I donít think it will be a miracle thatís keeps us up. I canít guess because I donít know who we will get in.

    However I do wish to point out although we are a small club there are clubs in championship who are in huge debt and will have to sell the odd player to stop banks crawling up their ass. Then thereís clubs like stoke who have a ageing squad with no stamina. Just saying it wonít be a miracle that keeps us up it will be other clubs failings that will

    Too early to tell really, but I'm hoping for 18th.

    PW needs to keep signing the 'right' sort of player who will contribute as part of a whole squad - the Ronnie approach.

    Our work ethic alone will see us survive next season. Our biggest hurdle over the next few years will be hanging onto Paul Warne and his team as they develop. Obviously another lucky guess by Mr Stewart.

    I dont think it will Sota. My humble opinion is that we overachieved last year, we had a team of grafters that were able to overcome the clear deficiencies the team had. Next year hard work wont be enough, the teams will be fitter, stronger, better technique, better coach and much better in possession and will hurt us more.

    We need to strengthen at the back to avoid a few spankings, our defence only just survived league 1 it wont be able to cope with the demands of the championship.

    ...I hope to be proved wrong (copywright of Ragingpup)

    Try looking at the individual player, some struggled in L1 because theyíre better suited to the championship style

    I am sorry to say I do agree, we can't compete financially all our games will be like cup games us against the big boys,we will win a few battles but can we win enough battles I'm not too sure.To battle all season will take its toll & I don't think our squad will be big enough to cope.Stopped having red & white eyes many years a go.Heads says relegation & with out doubt Heart say we will stay up.

    20th. A mini winning run mid season will help us.

    18th. We'll pull away from the relegation scrap near the end of the season thanks to our fitness
