How will we do this year?

Last season we had a poor start but then probably over achieved after Gary Rowett took over. From being in the bottom three to finishing tenth was an amazing turnaround but can we keep it up? Over the summer a few new faces have arrived and there have been less departures than in previous seasons. So there is room for optimism but the Championship is a very difficult league to predict.

If Blues can continue the post October form then a top six finish is possible however we were lucky with injuries in that period and relied very heavily on Cotterill and Donaldson for goals. I think we will need to get in another striker who contributes ten to fifteen goals if we can be considered promotion hopefuls. Mid table again is probably the safe bet, I don’t see us getting too close to the bottom this year. Tenth again for me while we wait for the ownership saga to finally run it’s course

  1. I agree Mike. I can think of at least eight teams in the Championship that have stronger squads in terms of personnel and depth so it’s a mid-table place for me but it depends on how well a start Blues get off to. Tuck a few wins under their belts and who knows? They may well over achieve and be in with a shout of sneaking a play-off berth but realistically I cannot see it happening; I reckon we will concede sloppy goals at crucial times because we need a decent centre half to accompany Morrison and I just don’t think we’ll score enough goals to sustain a meaningful challenge. For all that, looking forward to Saturday! 😀
