Lots to be positive about this season and I predict an 8th - 10th place finish.
Positive? And thatís the best you can come up with? Another season of failure?

I don't regard that as a season of failure.  I am comfortable with the fact that div 4 (or the lower end of div 3 if we win promotion at some point) represents STFC's place in the football pyramid.  Of course, a change in ownership/investment may change that - but I suspect that this is unlikely happen in the near future.

Presently I think Plymouth, Bradford, Exeter, Mansfield, Colchester, Walsall, FGR, Salford and Newport look potentially more capable of maintaining a challenge over a whole season, which would leave us 10th, but lots can change between now and May.

My pre Doyle and Grant prediction was 10th. We look easily stronger than that now. 4 of our next 5 games are against teams that I predicted would finish above us. A decent haul and auto is on. We coasted past a buoyant, well organised opposition, who made no real mistakes, yesterday. Weíve clearly got a proper team this year. Joyous times at the moment!

A fair few of us were sceptical of success after recent seasons methinks. Itís only after the last few games that unabound optimism has beset our brethren. I believe the capture of the likes of Doyle and Grant are going to be massive factors and they werenít on fansí radars back in August. Long may the good vibrations continue!

A mid table finish should be regarded as a successful season.

Yeah I really should read the whole thread before replying. But it's done now.
