Championship Teams 2017/18

Post by Liviforever on Sun May 21, 2017 6:26 pm

So depending on who wins between Hamilton and Dundee Utd the Championship lines up like this:

Utd/Accies
Brechin
Dumbarton
Dunfermline
Falkirk
ICT
Livingston
Morton
QoS
St Mirren


A lot of unknowns in there with relegated teams usually needing some big changes and promoted teams having to be tested to a higher quality than last season. Only thing i'm pretty certain of is that Falkirk will be up there as one of the main challengers, they're pretty consistent.

Lazy option but Brechin must be favourites for 10th place, they'll have the biggest job signing players good enough to stay up, they finished 31 points below us this season and it is a big step up for them.

Got a feeling Morton will do a Raith and be down the bottom half of the table, and QoS are in a steady decline, not too sure about St Mirren though, they had a big turnaround to survive but then again so did Livi under Burchill but we struggled again the following season,so could go either way.

Quite optimistic that we can challenge for a top 4 place but too many unknown quantities to make any educated forecasts.

Yeah, it's all up in the air at the minute. We appear to have strengthened but we haven't yet signed all the existing squad we apparently want to sign, so whether we have strengthened or maintained our current level really remains to be seen. Furthermore, we have so far recruited from the level we have been playing at, so arguably we are not stronger but that doesn't mean we aren't good enough to compete.

Just seen Morton have release Thomas Orr

Wasn't terribly impressed with him when he was with us but he rarely got more than 10 minutes on the field and he is older now so maybe he's put on some weight. That being said maybe Sampson and Ogilvie deserve a chance.
