Would like to think that the new players are more or less fully integrated into the squad now, so will start strongly, and fixtures have been fairly kind in August (on paper at least)..
We need to understand our first XI & formation and stick with it as best we can...
Think with the return of Lee & acquisition of Harris, we have more going forward than last - just need the strikers to hit some kind of form..
Forestieri owes us a good season too..
THEN, a lot of it depends on the other so-called "favourites" too.
FULHAM - Knockaert & Cavaleiro have been added to the squad, but what of Mitrovic & Sessegnon - if they both stay, you have to put them as clear favourites for the title..
LEEDS - A few departures and injuries make them not quite the force they were last season
They also seem to have been fairly quiet in the transfer market, and you saw how that affected them, leading to them fading away at the back end of the season..
WEST BROM, 'BORO, DERBY - all have new Managers so in a similar situation to us, albeit, their Managers have a 3-4wk headstart..
Can see us being in top 10, but with a little bit of luck and keeping relatively injury free, we might, just might sneak in the play-offs..
