    Based on what exactly ?
    We are allegedly in talks with potential new owners, have no confirmed playing squad, uncertainty over the manager and player budgets, ground sharing etc

    Another millstone the club doesn't need.

    Purely because they are the two largest clubs down there

    Wrexham might add themselves to that.
    Don't they get about 5,000 most games and travel well ?

    Last thing we need is an expectation that we'll do well By all means hope but an expectation is normally bad news....

    7/1 is frankly woeful odds.

    True, but it does mean the relegation odds (can't find any yet) should be quite generous.

    Just shows how little the bookies know. We're more likely to be involved in a relegation battle than a promotion push at this stage.

    It doesn't show how little the bookies know. The odds aren't a prediction of where teams will finish, they are a prediction of where the bookies think the money will be placed. This will be a tiny market for them, but the odds will be framed so they make a profit whichever team wins. If you are convinced that "We're more likely to be involved in a relegation battle than a promotion push at this stage", the obvious thing to do is put a bet on relegation where the odds should be generous.

    Yeah, until I have reason to think otherwise - which I'm hoping I will have very soon.
