Midtable, maybe midway in bottom half so agree with you on it.

To be fair to the players, they are no where near as bad as relegation suggests, even after losing the likes of owen and martins. Relegation was a direct result of off field politics, not the playing staff, in my humble opinion.

I think we'd be shit...

Shola wouldn't have his six goals.........Nolan would have 2 or 3 at the most

Taylor and Collocinni would be the same as they were last season

Jonas wouldn't have half the time on the ball he gets now and we still wouldn't have the creative 'unlocker' in midfield which is essential in the PL


so aye....I think we'd be shit

If this team was in the Prem, it would be embarrassing.

I would say bottom but to be honest they might just have enough about them to stay up if they kept the same unity and togetherness we have seen this season. So I will say 16th! Big Grin No higher though.

Fucking Rock Bottom, because the strikers playing against us would be having a field day...

I'm afraid my opinion is gloomy as well, bottom 2 without doubt.

Well look at it on a team by team basis.

Burnley
Portsmouth
Wolves
Blackburn
Birmingham
Hull


I would fancy us to match or better their results, on paper of course.

No strikers, no creative midfield (Pancrate, jury out). No decent manager. Hmmm, bottom 5.

If the game was paid on paper then we would not have been relegated. Don't want to be all negative but the Championship is such a low quality league so we shouldn't delude ourselves into thinking we'd do ok in the Premiership.

This team got us relegated. I have no qualms about saying we would be rock bottom in the Premier League.

Regardless of how well they are doing at the minute. We lost significant players over the summer and brought in bargain basement players to make up the numbers.

Bottom, they would be shipping goals every week, forwards are a lot more clinical in the premiership and when you give the ball away it normally finishes up in the back of the net a couple of minutes later.
the gulf in class between the two leagues is frightening.

I think we'd be skating along in third place, just getting into gear for a tilt at the title. This is assuming we're allowed to pick a particular year, which is why i've selected 1996.

The 96 team would be pissing this league Ven never mind third!

I dont hink there is such a big gap between the Prem and the Coca cola, we are living proff of that but there is a huge gap between the top half dozen teams and the rest.
Burnley, Hull, Portsmouth, Brum, Wolves, Bolton, Blackburn.

We would be well capable of beating those teams now and a few more besides

Sorry mate, but its because we couldnt beat the likes of Bolton, Blackburn, Hull etc etc last season we are now playing in the championship.

And dont forget, we are several decent players worse off.

Dont be fooled into thinking how good we are just because we seem to be walking away with this league along with WBA.

Agree, with a few additions obviously. We where good enough last season, but the players were too arrogant and lazy.
