Bookies odds for the coming season

Staggers me that the bookies think we are only 10/1 to finish top 6. Top 6 last season finished on 60 points, so we'd need 72 (WBA last season) to finish top 6 with the deduction. One of the worst prices ive ever seen

They don't think we are 10/1, they probably think we are 75/1 or something like that. But a payout on 10/1 is much cheaper than on 75/1 if it was to happen.

 

The bookies are about the transfer of money from your pocket to theirs.  The Stoke/Bet365 chairwoman paid herself close to £1m a day last season IIRC.

Yes, we're "on our way back".

 

What an absolutely dreadful state of affairs.

 

A bob manager, a bob team, and a 12-point penalty just for good measure.

 

Chansiri's fatal flaw is that he hangs on to managers too long.

 

With Carlos it cost us a third shot at promotion, and with Monk it will cost us our Championship status.

 

Back in cack.

Let me get this straight. 

 

-Chansiri came in 2015

 

-Projected PL by 2017

 

-All in, has spent well over £100m

 

-Spent inflated wages on ageing players

 

-Hiked ticket prices to an obscene level

 

-Fiddled the club's accounts? 

 

-Now starting on -12 in Championship

 

-Have Gary Monk as saviour

 

... and now the bookies have Rotherham United finishing above them next season.

 

Have I got that right?

No time to celebrate Inspector. I have to think about all those poor Rotherham Owls in these unsettling times. They will, without doubt, be besides themselves with these predictions from SkyBet. My heartfelt sympathies go out to them. They must feel really dumb today.

It would have been unthinkable when I was a young man that any of the top four clubs in that list would be vying for a place in the top league.

 

It just goes to show how TV money has skewed the competition in favour of the little clubs.

 

All four of those would have been in the bottom two leagues. It is slightly sickening.

You should finish above us with a 4 win head start. Probably won't though 😃
