They all are, even if doing well.

Do you honestly think we will struggle?

Last season we lost 30, that's THIRTY points from winning positions.
Do you think that'll happen again?

Last season we struggled the longer the matches went on presumably due to fitness or mental strengths.
Do you think that'll happen again?

Last season too many players were 'flaky' and allowed themselves to be bullied.
Do you think that'll happen again?

Last season it was clear that there were divisions in that squad.
Do you think that'll happen again?

If you think all the above will be allowed to happen again then I understand your pessimism.

The bit we don't know about apart from those who seemingly are experts on all divisions in this country (or claim so to be) is the players themselves and their respective qualities on the pitch and indeed off it.

Time will tell but the preparations seems better than usual, the sales apart from one that had to happen have happened and now it is down to the squad and management.

They can have reasons if they fail but no excuses after the support they have had from the owners.

Personally I can not bloody wait and if you can't be optimistic now when can you be?

You talk far too much sense sometimes Adi, it must be especially difficult for someone north of the border to understand. If we lose, I tend to blame myself for not being a good enough supporter.

No lump striker to go to war with it seems.

Had no idea Kayden Jackson was valued at as much as £2.5m.

So, we can make a few educated guesses.

Chapman was given the no.1 shirt and seems to have edged it from Conor. Evans will want a unit bombing from midfield in the absence of a Wyke-type up top, so O'Hara could well get the nod. He'll also want to try and generate some early enthusiasm, so Dembele will probably start.

Champan; Daniel Taff Yorwerth Naismith; Woody O'Hara Dembele XXXX; Godden Cummings

Just one spot to fill in then. Ward maybe? Easy.

What did I say that ruffled you Bristle? So are you saying it won't be a long, hard season? Will we coast through the full fixture list without any issues?

Surely, unlike most European Leagues, (including up in Scotland), the English Leagues, whichever division you are in, are the toughest leagues in world football, where almost every team is guaranteed a tough match every week, sometimes twice a week, for almost 10 months in a season, non-stop! To me that makes it a tough season every season and thats why we all like it so much.

Is the correct answer.
