Expectations for next season

Recommended Posts

With a 12 point start, I would expect us to fInish above Sheffield Wednesday. I would like us to have a positive goal difference all season, and to concede less than 40 goals. What do you expect?

Pretty much like last season, have a period where we think we can get to the play offs, and then fizzle out. Only next season will be further away from the play offs at the end.

I expect us to finish one place higher and 3 points more than this season - slow build and all that.

I expect us to finish 13th. Hope we can finish 10th to better last year but not expecting it.

Too soon to tell...until close of transfer window impossible to assess

Less than 40 goals???!  Is that before Christmas or for the whole season. If it's for the whole season we're probably going up as champions. Good times.

Two teams conceded less than 40 goals this season. It’s a target to aim for, and could well get us promoted

It is a target. We'll need a new back 4, keeper and manager but I admire your optimism

I agree on the keeper and manager.

I would love to have some expectations...new season, new opportunities....but with Mowbray, I can’t muster any enthusiasm or excitement. Same old same old.....and that really depresses me. I’m expecting him to “ give it a right good go “ 😢

As we are i'd say very very similar to this season with a finish a place either side of this seasons.

If as might be likely there's sales, budget cutting and a bit if any at all reinvestment then a bit of a struggle with a lower mid finish. 

Hopefully then a fresh change, new approach and a rebuild into something resembling a settled solid team, won't hold my breath though. I think some are dead set on making us the modern day version Gradi's Crewe.  Only without the nice football.

This sums up my feelings also.

i`me seeing another season of would could have been and more gutless performances,the only positive would be  mowbray to wave goodbye or for him to get a bang on the head and turn into some kind of attacking football guru

A full season of games, fans back in stadia, Corona Virus gone. Play off aspirations real.

Far too early to call this. I generally wait til the transfer business is done before calling it. I believe I've actually predicted it more or less spot on since and including our relegation season (I think I might have said top 10 for the season just gone which even one more point would have got us, not sure though).

It really depends on whether we sell any stars and whether we fix the glaring defensive problems with the right recruits. Too much change is still needed right now.

Me too. Let's see what players we have to work with first.

Exactly plus other teams businesses will also have to be taking into account. Plus the transfer window doesn't close to mid October for domestic transfers aswell

Bottom six.

IMO, you can sense we haven't a pot to p1ss in and our player trading will reflect this.  Can anyone provide a slither of positive evidence that we are going to be even a half decent player in the transfer market!?!?

Furthermore, IMO, we have a manager and coaching time who are well, well below par and that's being kind!

I think Uncle Tony will have retired, with a big fat wallet,  to his beloved Teeside before Christmas.

Next season is one of the most unexceptional championship line ups as I can ever remember.

It will be fine margins between every section.

We need someone who has the edge in tight games and can mastermind a win when going behind or to change a 0-0 into a 1-0.

For a neutral I expect it to be very competitive again. For Rovers fans under Mowbray it will just be more of the same week in week out. WDLWDL repeat to fade.

We need a spark. A talisman who can lead the team. Not a Bennett at full back or a Gallagher out wide. Massive rebuild this Summer before we gear up for another go in two years.

Right now only the most hardened of hardcore fans would renew with the state the team and club are in. The idea of growing the fanbase hasn’t entered anyone’s heads and the COVID restrictions will be a blessing for many at the club.

Top half would be a good finish given the state we are in but surely nothing less than a top six berth will keep Mowbray in the job? Would 8th be seen as yet more progress to many? Any building supposedly done to date has been out of papier-mâché.

12th -18th, 5000 season tickets sold, Brereton 'about to come good' and Dack sold in January for an 'undisclosed fee'.

Tony's pension pot filling up nicely.

If we start the season like this and keep this team together then I see us finishing between 3rd and 8th.

I'd go with that.  Evans is my concern,  Stoke might come calling soon
