There's a prediction bit in today's Guardian.... we get in as a PO contender, mostly on the back of the hack having heard of Fryers.  More worrying for Saturday is that Scunny are reckoned top 3 material.

Just for comparison here is their attempt from last year, showing Notts County tipped for promotion and Tranmere looking to avoid a relegation fight.

Not exactly a good argument for the hack knowing that much.

General consensus is we'll finish between 6th and 10th unless something miraculous happens in the next 4 weeks transfer wise.

Why does it have to be miraculous?

Has general consensus factored in the January transfer window? Or has that been abolished?

Prediction: See last year (top half, poss playoffs).

No idea about many of the players to be honest. Don't have enough goals in us for autos (IMO). That could change over the coming week(s).

I think if we can indeed get in the 3 or 4 attacking options Wellens has spoke about then I think we can challenge for autos definately, as we are then just outside of the play offs for me 9th ish.

First month of the season gone and it's looking pretty good.
Not been outplayed by anyone and could have maintained an unbeaten start if not for a poor decision.

We are 4 points up when compared to the equivalent games against the same opposition last year.

The overall play has been very good, bearing in mind that the team is still gelling.
That needs to be sustained and also look to see games out when taking the lead at places like Cheltenham and keep a clean sheet in games similar to yesterday.

Looking ahead to September hopefully we can go on an unbeaten run.

One thing that has been very noticeable is the reconnect between fans and team.
During the warm ups, the level of support during games and the appreciation shown afterwards.

Early days yet but signs of things moving "forwaaard" on and off the pitch.

‘Looking ahead to September hopefully we can go on an unbeaten run.’

I did allude to the fixture list a short while ago, in as much I suggested we could go unbeaten all the way up to Cambs away. Maybe further with Lady Luck on our side. #invincibles, well except one.

We've far more about us than a 9th prediction. Stay clear of injuries, and reverse the bad luck/calls. We will finish top 4 i'm confident.

We do, that was way back before the start of the season, I would think we will...or should make autos with a couple more signings before tomorrows deadline, without them I think we can still make play offs.

Playoffs are doable.

autos I'm not so confident for the reasons.
1. squad is flimsy after first 13 or so
2. defence looks a bit shaky
3. Doyle and Yates can both score, but we look a bit reliant on them. They will go through sticky spells, plus prospect of January recall. not sure where else the goals are coming from..

1 may be addressed tomorrow
3. may not happen.

I'll put us in the 4-9 category, feeling strangely optimistic so I'll go 5th but we shouldn't rule out autos
