    I thought you said he wouldn't be here at the start of the season ?

    Answer : Play-offs.

    Don't forget that The Idiot is a Trump disciple and now resides In the US of A, or so he claims. So why all the continual attention angst about Rotherham United.

    Weird.

    He's got a contract to be a bricklayer on the Mexico Wall project too, apparently, even though it's not going ahead .
    Whatever would "still 59-years young, ladies and gentlemen" like-minded banned friend Kempo make of that?

    Kempo would sell him bricks

    Expectations are considerably higher for this coming L1 campaign than they were the last time we were here, which can be dangerous. No one is even contemplating that we might struggle once we potentially lose all our best players and replace them with lesser versions.
    It seems to be in everyones minds, that we're going to win the playoffs again. I wouldn't bet against it either, but there's always a chance that things might not click straight away if we bring in a load of new players once ours leave, like Ipswich last season. Paul Hurst made what looked like some very good signings for them but they didn't click which set them up for the season and cost PH his job.

    To answer the question, its a tough one, if we finish in the bottom half I'd say that would be a failure. Or at least very disappointing.

    Last time we went up it was a rollercoaster. We started really well putting five past a few teams. The strike partnership with Keiffer Moore looked lethal until Proctor got injured. We then had a dip in form and one fan on here said he'd given up and was so dissolutioned he wasn't going again....ever

    We then hit form in December and nearly got automatic promotion.

    It's inevitable that the club will get a slating on here including players, owner, manager and coaches by some if we don't win for a few games. Wholesale changes will obviously be required including a proper manager and a foreign investor.

    He's just the Cone Man and the Stewart family's lost interest will be wheeled out again.

    46 matches will judge our season not a bad run in the middle of 4/5 games

    A team needs a degree of luck to get promoted and we can't expect that every season in Div One.
    I'd say anything below 10th would be disappointing

    Warne's done this before so is achievable, in him we trust.....

    Anything less than the play offs would be highly disappointing. Just look at the bookies stats. They are expecting a lot from us.

    Not setting my sights too high, lets get enough points on the board to avoid another relegation first. New team plus league one is packed full of teams who on any day can lick the other team. Anything below 12th would be disappointing, hoping for too 6 and 6 points off the gypos down the m18.

    If they lose Marquis they are in the deep doo doo and will probably finish mid to low table if they’re lucky! They’ve nothing else to offer team wise apart from a 39 year old who’s coming to the end of his career

    One thing we forget, behind the scenes we’ve now got more stability and experience.

    That counts for a lot in this division filled with teams that are one bad debt away from bankruptcy

    From what I've seen of league one the "To me to you" tactics are prevalent and that's one side to another. Simple football - keeping possession and consistency (without injury) should be enough to be top six. Then it's a lottery. League one lacks quality.

    Where is the band of brothers attitude to get last years players wanting to get back to championship together - eased out perhaps due to lack of "Quality"....but replaced by £250k failed bid players - can't see a theme yet. Or perhaps we can?

    "Paul Warne will have failed if at the end of the coming season we finish any lower than .....3rd - 6th.....position"
