For goodness sake don't write our boys off before we've started, where's your vision & dreams for the club? I agree with earlier postings, if we can't beat everyone convincingly this season we don't deserve it! C'mon Bris I can't wait... Newcastle at the Mem .... Bring it on!
The way it works (and other teams seem to have fathomed this before us until now) is that we may only need to beat Newc once in the whole season, provided said victory is by a sufficient margin to withstand being reversed in a second leg of a playoff semi / final.
Hopefully it won't need to come to that, but I won't be panicking if we get stuffed by them early in the season, as from Sept to Christmas is effectively a pre-season period with competitive games in it. If we can shore up a forth place (at least) finish and then hit our straps in the playoffs then, who knows, maybe this farcical promotion system might work in our favour for a change!
I believe Bristol have a great chance next season. They have the best support, good facilities, more experience in using the Championship system and as I understand it, a financial backer. Provided they can choose the right players especially @ 8,9 and 10 there is no reason why they shouldn't make it third time lucky.
