Mid table would still be a result, promotion would be a welcome bonus.

It's hard to say. I think we've a squad that is too large and have quite a few players the manager would ideally shift if they weren't on good contracts.
I do think that our real positive is how Slade will have them organised and I think we will end up comfortably top half.

Quoted from MeanwoodMariner
I think the "ageing defence and uninspiring frontline" is an understandable description. However, the 33+ year old defenders are pretty good, and just behind the frontline are Osborne and Jones who are our real creative force.

We may not have massively strengthened but we have a much more astute manager in charge now I would be surprised if we don't at least threaten the playoff positions.

Fair enough. Out of interest then, where do you see the goals coming from?

At this stage of the season, every team in the division should believe they can finish in the promotion places. Only an idiot would try to predict all 24 places at this stage.

Decent enough prediction for me. I am disappointed with our recruitment so far. Doesn't look like much of the Bogle has been spent. Still a bit of time to get those hairs on the back of my neck standing up though.

On the contrary, I think the club has made big steps forward this summer, clearly modernising. I think we've made some good signings, but I think the money invested in sports science will make a big difference, and we'll eek out those extra points that we bemoaned not having last season to reach the play offs.

It's futile trying to predict finishing positions based on retained and signed players. Many seasons watching Town have taught me that you never know which side will click and which won't. Players you don't really know much about can become integral. Conversely, players you think will do the biz can bomb. Obviously, you need the ingredients of a good manager and a certain amount of experienced players, but sometimes it just takes off and sometimes it fizzles out. Around Xmas time is the time to judge where we are going, and even then, a couple of good signings in Jan can give you fresh impetus.
