What drugs are you on, northern, and more importantly, where can I get some ?
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

Good to see this annual tradition being maintained, and as I say every year, you're a brave man making predictions this far out, Danish.

I am pleased to see you're a little more optimistic about QPR this time around, up to 16th from 19th last year.

Personally I can't see two relegated teams going straight back up automatically. Appointing Darren Moore is a gamble for West Brom, as is Graham Potter for Swansea. Great to see some imagination being shown by a few clubs in the Championship though, rather than just going after the same tired old names.

That said, I imagine Pulis will be up there with Boro, and I think Brentford will be potential top 6 material again.

I think Leeds under Bielsa may be the dark horses. It'll certainly be interesting to see how he gets on in English football.

Good points Ux. Boro under Pulis will be a force. Forest under Karanka too.

Think Naarge under Farke might struggle. They have sold Murphy and Maddison and bought strange sounding replacements.

I think you'll find we finished 16th last season (three points and two places better off than the previous season), did we not?

Why would you? No progress on previous season - what would have been the point of firing Ollie and Birch?

I was referring to where Danish Ranger predicted we would finish, as opposed to where we actually did.

With the old rose tinted spectacles on I reckon upon a 15th - 17th place finish but the squad is still very precarious and if things don't click then I fear for the worst.

It'll depend if there are at least 3 notable signings before the window closes. At this point in time given we are a notably worse team than last season without Smithies Onhua and Robinson I'd say if we are not relegated it will be by 1 or 2 places.

Have they sold out?
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.
