An improvement on last season and might just sneak the playoffs.

I thought we would just about make the playoffs last season, and to be fair we werenít that far off for most of it.

Have to say for this season I think the same is likely, a top 10 with a chance of the playoffs.

I guess a lot depends on how the new signings settle in, the one positive is that I think we have a better manager this time.

Hopes:

promotion - don't care how so long as we beat MK Stealers and Flitcroft and that my expectations are shown to be ridiculous and Reg-like

Fears: 

defensive football, midtable finish, shamed by Flitcroft and MK Stealers, falling attendances, drift and mild decline

Expectations: 

once again, not quite good enough for the playoffs and, yes, another year of drift leaving us where we are today but with another wasted year.

Hopes:  playoffs

Expectations:  PB will continue last year's style of attacking play with better players

Fears:  Going too defensive and tippy-tappy again

What does it say in the wider WSC survey, we often used to pop up as an disliked club in the strangest possible places?

It did surprise me that we are a fair bit higher in the hated clubs than their much closer rivals Exeter who Yeovil often have hooligan problems with home and away.

I don't remember there being a single fight or problem at any Yeovil v Swindon game in the past.

Although I do know they really don't like us yet they don't mind Rovers and Shitty who have both caused a lot of problems the last few times they played.

I was surprised we were so disliked, relatively, throughout the League.  Would rather be there than right down the bottom with the likes of Colchester.

I'd put the dislike levels down to the PDC effect.

Regardless, MKD rightly top.

Jealousy?
Several Yeovil fans I have spoken to have said their main dislike started with the transfer of (at the time) Yeovil legend Andy Williams with us doubling his wages and his badge kissing in front of them after scoring, seems petty to me TBH and why the anger is directed at STFC rather than Andy Williams I also don't understand.

Presumably, the "George" character in this is from somewhere near the other end of the A420:
