I think most feel we will be in the botttom half, but prob not in the bottom 4/5. At least not all of the season.


I agree with this, expecting us to drop like a stone when relegation odds become more favourable. Can see us losing twice to Bolton again as the stable owner tells Jockey 2 to pull up against jockey 1. Think Bolton will be a good bet for the play offs expect Cardiff , Leicester, Leeds, Blackpool to be there or there about's. Possible dark horses Sheff W and Brighton

Think Peterborough will go down and we'll finish comfortably mid table but with nothing exciting happening all season.

I think we found out last time we got relegated how hard Championship/Division 1 can be. That first game last time vs Port Vale was a shocker and it took most of that season to recover and do anything decent after Souey came in. Since then I think that the league has got even harder and I dont think we have the leadership skills to be any good.

We will beat the poorer sides and draw or lose against the better teams so I don't see us going down and finishing 10th at best. Watford, Cardiff and Wolves should do well.

What's the difference between yoghurt and Australians ? At least yoghurt starts with a little culture.

Cardiff one up in injury time
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Surprised nobody has mentioned our old slanging foes... the big team Brum

Think they will be more stable this trime around along with Boro & Leicester

Wolves should be around there but looking less promising the more there players get mentioned to be leaving - Notlob same as us- should be there or there abouts but won't be.

Think our lovely neighbours down the 65 may surprise a few this season.

Thought Huddersfield were really unlucky tonight, by far the better team but didn't take all those chances. Norwood looks a real talent.

Rovers will win the league and I've money on it at 16/1
I fancy Bolton to join us automatically with Huddersfield going through the playoffs

EH Diouf is on the bench for Neil Warnocks Leeds now. Just couldn't make it up.

Leeds 1-0 up. Wolves looking horrific at the back. Premier League hangover in full effect. Rovers be warned.

Watching this game and the one last night has me worrie that we don't have enough average championship type players who know the league

The likes of Dean marney aren't anything special but important in this league
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

Crikey, I thought rovers were poor defensively but wolves take it to a whole new level.

Thought this before the games today and not much has really changed the opinion.

Bolton or Cardiff to win the league

Other tough challengers - Leeds, Big Club, Wolves and Leicester.

Top 6 of us, Bolton, Cardiff, Leeds, Leicester and Leeds.

Think Blackpool will lose 2 of their best players by end of the window. Leeds look to have made some very shrewd signings and Warnock is experienced at this level.

Looking at the teams in the league...I think Us, Cardiff & Bolton to go up, with Leicester losing the play-off final. IF we sign Rhodes then I really think we could even with the league.

If anyone thinks that Rovers gave away needless points today...

As I couldn't see the Rovers game I watched the Burnley v Bolton game thinking it'd be a good local derby with lots of spirit. Bolton were absolutely awful.

We didn't give away any points, we were lucky to escape with one.

stop being obtuse. by all accounts we were 2nd best today. We had 2 shots on target and 2 corners. We scored once and sat back the rest of the game. That's hardly the way to go about getting promoted, but it is EXACTLY the same as last season. Nothing has changed except everything has got a little bit shitter.
