Personally, I think we had a stronger starting squad than anyone else and we've done the best business out of all of them. It'd take a very strange sequence of events for us to not go up with Rafa and this squad. 9.

Well it's at least a 9, really. I was trying to be cautious but it'd be a huge shock if we didn't get promoted, we don't even have to win the thing.


Think Norwich, Brighton, Villa and Derby are the ones to watch.
