Easily the best squad we've had in 15 years, probably 17 years.

I'd say its the best squad we've had since, well May

I'm almost scared that if we start well we won't have the fight we had last season. I'm getting all anxious now

Oooooh! Calm down love :gay: Cool

On the subject in hand, I think we've all come to realise over the years that virtually no time, thought or research goes into these things. "Ooooh, let's see...Swindon Town...play off hangover...leading scorer gone...club captain gone....hmmmmmm...14th it is! NEXT!"

They have us down to finish 5th, so they're not complete idiots.  Cheesy

In all seriousness though, Walsall will be doing well to stay up. They could, apparently, go into administration within the next couple of months, and all it needs is a few teams into admin and the relegation places become a lot more competitive. I actually think Yeovil will suprise a lot of people this season, and come in the top 12. The signing of Adam Virgo just adds to that opinion, it didn't make it. They've quietly assembled a half decent little side down there, and if they can start well, I think they'll be alright.

The Yeovil fans I know down here don't share your optimism.

What did SKY predict our position would be last season? All predictions made outside the top 4 of the premiership are usually wide of the mark.

If we sign Dossevi I'll be really pleased. Mainly because PL clubs were after him last season - which is probably for the wrong reasons.


Wonder what his wage demands are going to be? Hopefully he's been told the likely wage he'd get before coming on trial.

How confident were you at the start of last season? I think they'll go under the radar for a while, if not all season, but I think they'll do quite well. They need a few more players in the squad, but what they've got at the moment isn't looking bad.

And where do you think Swindon will finish, out of interest?

I hope you'll finish in the top 6 again. I like Swindon, honestly. I wouldn't be here if I had no interest in you at all. I'm looking forward to making my annual visit to Swindon this saturday, I'm just hoping the result is a bit better this season!

Brighton and us, both top 8. I actually agree with the 4 they have said will go down from L1.

Michael Poke (GK)
Inigo Calderon (RB)
Marcos Painter (LB)
Matthew Sparrow (CM)
Agustin Battipiedi (CM)
Cristian Baz (LM)
Ashley Barnes (FW)

And we're not quite done yet, either. All summer we've been after LuaLua, and another striker. According to certain people, we've got another centre back coming in to partner Greer. We didn't need major reinforcements this summer, just key players in certain parts of the team, which we've got.

Matthew Sparrow is a great signing, would do a job at Championship level.

You're right. I really should make the effort to properly read your posts.
