1st. I've had a bet at 1,000/1, though I did back us E/W as 2nd would be decent progress. ;)

14th, which i'd judge as good progress from last season. That said, i think the measure of success will be the point if/when we reach 38pts.

I'd like to think we'd have a shot at one of the cups, maybe the league cup. Can see a few teams putting it on lower priority this season with the fixture congestion, so it might provide a route in to Europe to fast-track our progress.

I'm hoping 12-14th but without ever really feeling threatened by a relegation battle - that would be real progress for me.

Other than Watkins I still don't feel we've improved the starting 11 that much from the start of last season.  The key differences will be him and the new improved Luiz.  I'm still leaning towards 15-18 at the moment.  That may sound negative, but it's a competitive league.

Assuming we don't go into full covid lockdown again, and assuming Trump doesn't impose marshall law declaring the US presidential election null and void which coupled with total breakdown in Europe as a result of no deal brexit leading to world war 3 and the abandonment of the season altogether then I really think we have an excellent chance of making top half as I'm by nature an optimist.

Don't forget the rise of the machines, could lose Jack for months thanks to a vengeful cross training machine. 11th to 17th would be acceptable on that outcome.

Theres not been many seasons of late where we haven't gone into the last few games without our fate hanging in the balance one way or another. We're due one of those.

Think we'll stay up. May have stayed up anyway without any transfers. Will be in 12th-17th area whether our signings come off or not. 12th-14th if they do. If they don't then 15th-17th with the club dumping Smith in November. That's the main question for me this season - whether Smith survives

Nah, it's whether England come in for him with us top of the league, when they boot Southgate for defying Covid restrictions and going on a 4 day bender in Alicante.

nah Smith has already been too successful to replace Southgate. The FA will be looking at some guy with one season's experience in the premiership before getting relegated.

They'll promote someone from within the 'system' at Burton, so Phil in catering is next in line. That's if he's not called into the playing squad before Jack.
