Somebody has to finish top 10, there are hardly loads of obvious candidates for the autos.

Plenty of top half finishing positions to play for, we will have a shot once Wellens gets his signings in. Contrary to popular belief he will sign some strikers

So what's the view on Hope? Was he only signed as a desperate backfill in case Doyle didn't come back, or is there genuinely any, um, hope he could do a job in L1?

Well as it stands he will be in prime position to start on the left wing for us, he will be an inverted winger cutting in from the left onto his stronger right. He has played in L1 for Bury previously and scored goals.

For me he doesn't contribute enough in games yet, that could be because he isn't used to our system though. He still managed to score 2 goals in 4 starts which is good going but I havent seen enough of him yet to see if he will be a good enough to hold down regular starting slot yet, or wether he will be an impact sub.

He is a C- signing, scored goals but not looked at home yet but Wellens obviously rates him, I think he will probably be a regular starter next season though, at the moment we don't have many options though.

 Just as a point of info.... Hallam has scored 3 goals in Div 3.... 2 of which were against us. So yes he has played in Div 3 and scored goals (3).

So my point stands, he has played in L1 and scored goals (albeit 66% were against us).

I don't think that he has played enough to take a meaningful view.

So let me try to get this straight Venks and Reg. Hope has:
1) Played in League 1 (previously known as Division 3)
2) Scored goals in said League 1 (previously known as Division 3)

Have I got this right yet? It's damnably confusing.

I don’t know if I’ve missed the point here, but his record in league 1 is 3 goals in 39 appearances (per Wikipedia)

The phrase scored goals usually means scored a decent amount of goals doesn’t it?? Paul Robinson played hundreds of games and ‘scored goals’

If we’re going to rely on hope he needs to improve from a) his last time in league one and b) his general peformances last season. That’s not to say he can’t do either, but it’s what will be needed

For me the phrase "scored goals" means exactly that. Nobody said "scored goals consistantly, or scores a few goals.

I said he has scored goals in L1, which as you correctly state, he has scored goals in L1 albeit only a few.
