SweeperKeeper the only one so far predicting 4 promoting. Interested to know why the rest have only gone for 3

We win promotion and none of us get to see any of it in the flesh..and then win sweet FA again for the next 30 years.  

Well the current incumbent has delivered our worst side in over 60 years. His predecessor(s) promised lots and delivered years of false dawns  wracked up the debt and sold half the land of for houses

Certainly not a dig at you Doggy, but I see you have Kewell as being here at the end of the season and have us finishing 17th. Given the comments from the great man yesterday about HK taking us to the Championship, I'd be surprised if he kept faith with him for guiding us to 17th in the 4th Division...

17th was slightly tongue in cheek 😀 Reality is slightly higher but then the heart often gets in the way of the head when predicting where Latics will finish...

Where will we finish? 23rd

POTS - Another loan signing (not yet recruited)

Emerging star - ?

Will Harry Kewell be here at the end of the season? Gone in December

Will Abdallah still be here? No

Biggest pissboil of the season - AL purchase of the club*  

Promoted from L2 - Bolton, Tranmere, Salford, Port Vale 

Relegated from L2 - Oldham and Southend 

 

Whilst i am encouraged by several of the signings to date (McAleny in particular), the first team looks brittle at best and the midfield looks pitifully weak. The young lad from Norwich who is an Oldham lad may add some quality but its a lot to ask him to run the midfield. I am hoping we can attract a couple more half decent recruits to bolster the side.  

 

Also need assurance that the best of those players left in dispute about wages are going to stay.

Where will we finish? 12th/13th

POTS - Piergianni

Emerging star - Keillor-Dunn

Will Harry Kewell be here at the end of the season? Gone early January and no other head coach brought in before end of January so he can't plough the transfer market

Will Abdallah still be here? Possibly, but we can always hope he's not

Biggest pissboil of the season Sacking another head coach after he "has a different vision for taking the club forward" only to be repeated again before the season ends. That, plus the JR stand still closed in the New Year

Relegated from L2 - Stevenage & Harrogate.
