Taking the piss out the each club's fans rather over-inflated expectations I suspect...

Yes

I would expect the big clubs to get their act together and don't see Blackpool as a threat

This thread shows how much the failure to keep hold of Anderson, Doyle and Yates (and potentially others) has rattled people. There were rumblings of pushing in League 1 when we were banging in the goals. I suspect a few good signings and the optimism (with the right amount of Covid related pragmatism) may return.

I'm rattled about where the goals will come from, but Wellens has been excellent in recruitment so far and I trust him to come good.

Not getting relegated would be good.

That might sound Req-esque,

....

I do have confidence in Wellens, though.

quite agree.

promotion expectations in League 2 in a normal season are one thing.

but right now we are in survival mode. we must have overspent last season simply due to not having gate money in a promotion run in.

I guess many are in a similar boat though. That's one 'positive'

Hope for somewhere mid-table ish.

Expect somewhere a tad lower.

Will need to revisit this maybe a week before the season when Grant has/hasn’t signed a new contract and we’ve replaced Doyle, Yates and Benda etc.

We do we always end up with such poor quality trolls?

I appreciate a good troll. The type where you sometimes just have to doff your hat and say 'fair play, you got me there'.

A good troll has wit, creativity, and originality. Ours have none of those things. Nothing but banality and predictability. (Although Reg is good at getting people hooked, I'll give him that).

Those few clubs that are recruiting before any cap comes into effect are really chancing their arm.

I presume every club will use up the maximum cap allowance, so if those signed do not live up to expectations there is no leeway in the January window to put things right and little chance of offloading them.

If, for example, Bolton get the Bradford version of Doyle they’re stuck with a player on a lucrative 3 year contract who, effectively, can’t get replaced or offloaded.

I doff my hat to Blackpool for giving it a go, but if they’ve got it wrong they’re in the shit for a while - no matter how much the owner may be willing to invest. Especially as their signings are just decent L2 players. We got out of L2 by recruiting decent L1 players with a question mark over them, either fitness wise or temperament wise.
