3rd – The Opposition
At the start of the season, I thought that Boro and Derby would finish in the top 2.
Nothing I’ve seen to date has changed my view.
Brighton are obviously this years Burnley/Bournemouth (good first 11 with momentum) but ultimately I don’t see them having the legs, or more specifically the squad.
Hull certainly have the squad, but I think January could be a massive problem to them when the Premier league’s strugglers start to have a go at the buy out clauses most of their big players have.
Burnley and their horrible manager I can’t stick. How they can be “under the radar” when they have a £9m striker and the most notorious character in English football in their ranks is beyond me. The only way they are coming up is play offs but don’t be surprised if they do.
Without doubt Sheff Wednesday are the dark horses and I expect them to go big again in January. I guess we’ll see on Sunday how good they are; However its maybe a season too soon for them.
Although there’s currently nothing to pick between the top five, there will be by May. Derby to win it, Boro runners up, BOOM!
