    Hopefully there will be at least three teams worse than us.

    Still hoping Pace gets his finger out and signs a player with some flair.

    Your lack of pace will hold you back but you have a strong defence and should have enough to nick a sufficient number of wins by playing direct, but a lot will depend on Woods and Barnes if he plays. If they get injured I'm not so sure. - the other forwards are basically there to supply the ammo and you'll need to keep McNeil.

    VC has nailed it, we are wholly dependent on there being three teams in a worse state than us.

    If Dyche signs an extension to his contract the "feel good factor" will probably sustain us, if he doesn't, I fear we will be relegated this season.

    It's already clear to me, we will be propping up last year's first team squad with kids. Deja vu -1969-70 season.

    Would those be the same kids that couldn't beat Lancaster City, or do we have another cohort, closer to PL standard being kept under wraps. Serious question, I don't know whether we do or not.

    Thomas, Richardson, Thompson & Glennon might be able to step up sinkov and young Harker is a couple of seasons away I feel.

    I'm pretty sure SD will be getting the chance to find out pretty soon.

    If we do not sign some attacking and creative players on the wings and/or midfield we will be relegated.I have said it before two out of the three teams coming up from the Championship are not new to the PL and Brentford have a much better recruitment system than us.We are way too weak in midfield-I cannot understand why we did not go for Lundstrom on a free from the Blades.
