There we go safe at last. On my birthday as well. What better way to celebrate being 54.

Might as well close the thread now.

In where will we finish watch this week, it is narrowing down to between 10th and 15th.

Bearing in mind that we seem to have made 11th place our own over the past few weeks, I hope a few of the chasers slip up with their game in hand, so we can retain it.

Anything other than 18th will make a mockery of this league. I keep reading it is going to be even harder next season but can't establish whether this is actually a FACT.
Can't see that the teams coming up/down are suddenly going to transform it into some L1 super league. Don't want MK to come up, although happily see the back of the P*sh and we can call it a draw this season.

I reckon next season could be a slog but a bit of an unknown until we have recruited. There does seem to have been a lot of spat dummies this season when we've had a few poor results but we have demonstrated bouncebackability on several occasions. No reason we can't replicate that.

Just looking at who is coming up and coming down I think next season is probably going to be harder -

It's a bit of a negative approach but the teams I think just might be worse than us are -

Stevenage
Orient
Exeter
Wycombe
Cambridge
Shrewsbury
Burton
Mansfield
plus who ever goes up in L2 Playoffs

So I only need to be 50% right for us to stay up!

Good to see Stevenage very unlikely to make the playoffs because I think they will crash and burn next season (Like Forest Green). Also good to see the best MK Dons can do is very likely to be only a playoff place

Peter, I would add Bristol Rovers to that list. They are not far below us but have relied heavily on the goals Martin has scored, the goals they scored at Cheltenham on Saturday ended a run of 7 games without scoring.

Just because we might finish above 4 of these it doesn't mean they are 'worse'  Tongue

The likes of Wrexham will have to splash some more cash for L1 (their bubble will burst at some point) and the likes of Rotherham coming down should hardly fill us with dread.
On paper it could be another decent season, especially if we can improve on players like Simpson...plus my grandmother would be an improvement on Hylton and she died in 1986. Leonard will be tougher to replace.

I think its looking (marginally) easier!
Teams who I think will definetely finish above us...
Sheff Wed, Huddersfield / Birmingham, Derby / Bolton, Barnsley, Wigan, Reading.

That's about it in terms of right off. Not for 1 second thinking we would get 7th but I think we are in with a large group of other teams who will occupy 7th - 15th ish.
Especially with the money we saved in January  Wink

I think you are pretty bold by suggesting that Huddersfield for example will finish above us; the same could be said of the last two teams in your list. My opinion is based on the concept that on our day we can hold our own with some of the better teams in L1. The caveat to this is how we plan for next season!

Agree we can hold our own but I think Huddersfield have the knowledge, and finances, to do it on a more sustainable basis. Wigan is based on how they have performed with points deductions & embargos and Reading on an assumption the sale goes through with no more points off.
As always 1-2 teams will out perform, 1 or 2 will royally f*** it up and the rest will perform as expected. Exciting though isnt it.

From what I've seen of Huddersfield on the TV, I think they would crush us.
