With this very strange season finally done and dusted, I will have a go at trying to predict the season, which is ahead of us

Without any knowledge of who will stay and who will move on, it is bound to be a shot in the dark, but here we go

Watford
Brentford
---
Cardiff
Norwich
Bristol City
Swansea
---
Nottingham F
Preston
Derby
Middlesbrough
Millwall
Stoke
Blackburn
Huddersfield
Coventry
QPR
Bournemouth
Barnsley
Birmingham
Reading
Luton
---
Sheffield Wed
Rotherham
Wycombe

Forest in 7th make me chuckle. :lol:

Perhaps not this season, but I can see Bournemouth eventually dropping down the leagues without Eddie Howe in charge.

Unless Brentford recruit well I can’t see them finishing top two. Wouldn’t be surprised if their front three all left.

The division doesn't look quite as strong as it has in recent years. If we get the big units that we need in at cb, cm anc cf then we should be OK. I'm not sure about Watford. I reckon the owners will continue to mess around. I actually think Bournemouth will do well. They were unlucky to go down and they will mostly stick with the club.
Come on you Sooopa ........

They tend to do that though. That said, it's hard to keep repeating it year after year.

Especially now that clubs are aware of how they operate, they only need to see who Brentford are after then out bid them for players.

Most clubs in the EFL go for Wyscout software, I wonder if bus stop are the same or have their own, custom scouting/ analysis software?

By these predictions it looks like It's not thought Derby will get a 12 point deduction

Following the 'stick' I got from some of you guys a couple of years ago, I didn't post 'my prediction' for 2019/20 although I did continue to do it for my own purposes/interest, and actually predicted a 16th position finish for most of the season - and we finished 13th I think.

I shall start it again on 12th September for the 2020/21 season and if 'my calculations/forecast/prediction' begins to show any significant swings one way or the other, then you can all rest assured that I will post you all an advanced notice !!!

So much next season will be dependent on adjudications on FFP breaches, cost cutting due to C-19 etc. :D , I wouldn't even like to predict which 24 teams will start the Championship.

Agree, very uncertain times and very difficult to predict anything including if the season will be completed without interruption.
I'll be happy if QPR finish mid-table, unearth a few more gems and just for once get a decent cup run in! :D

Last seasons cup run was encompassed in our spell at the top of the world's leading goalscorers for the decade don't forget, happy days and included Josh Scowen's goal of the season. :D
