What’s people’s thoughts about new season and are realistic expectations for final league position

I think we could be genuine contenders for top 6 and possibly European football

And I hope we will take both domestic cup competitions serious playing strongest team we can.

{Ed025's Note - i think we should walk before we try to run Sean, i want us to get to safety first and foremost then take it from there mate, it looks like we may be bedding in a few players and it may take time for them to gel so its a bit of an unknown quantity to start with, of course i would like you to be right but i dont want to put the mockers on it..

Agree0 Disagree0

Sean I have to love your optimism, but that’s a bit mad, top 6! Let’s see, progress is key, top half would be good, but key thing is scoring more goals.

07 Jul 2024 20:43:07
There’s more than 6 better squads than ours on paper. I’d be delighted with top half and a cup run next season, tighten up the finances, and strengthen again next summer and who knows from there.

Top 6 is a tall order and, as ed025 says, it could take a while for new players to bed in. Success this season shouldn't just be judged on what happens on the pitch, the work done behind the scenes to get rid of players on big contracts that won't play is also key. We need to get to the magic 40 points mark, although that's not always needed these days, and then reassess our goals once we get there. Top 6 would be nice but I think it's a bit unrealistic given how the last couple of seasons have panned out for us. We can live in hope though.

I think that we should expect mid-table, anything above that would be nice but the most important thing is to be safe from relegation all season long and play football that we can be happy to watch. The new players look good on paper but are unproven in our squad, they will need time to bed in and it will take another couple of windows to get rid of the underachieving high earners.

{Ed025's Note - i think so too Mike..

07 Jul 2024 21:18:32
Mid table would be excellent mate.

07 Jul 2024 22:25:43
Give me mid table and no more point deductions anyday of the week considering we have been flirting with relegation for the last 4 years top 6 got not chance but mid table i would take all day knowing that were safe with 9 games to go touch wood.

{Ed025's Note - i would bite your arm off for that andy..

07 Jul 2024 23:02:16
Now now ed 025 anyone else's arm of course haha.

{Ed025's Note - of course andy...im not Suarez you know mate.. :)

07 Jul 2024 23:20:15
Top 6 that’s ambitious to say the least I’d say we just need to avoid relegation anything else is a brucie bonus.

08 Jul 2024 03:18:05
If we can be safe by January I'd be happy. finish between 8-12 would represent a massive step forward.

If we go into BMD as a stable club looking up instead of down then we become a more attractive club to better players.

Top 6 hopefully within 5 years would be a great achievement as long as we balance the books and stay within budgets.

So good to be positive after the last few seasons.


08 Jul 2024 09:35:47
Let’s say top ten then. Let’s be a little bit positive eh.

08 Jul 2024 10:34:56
With the football we currently play we can expect nothing higher than 12th. If SD changes it up a little, which I very much doubt, then with a bit more attacking if we recruit well for it, then I’d like to say top half wouldn’t be out of the question.

Right now we have zero pace going forward so realistically, as the saying goes…

You can only make broth with the bones you have got.

08 Jul 2024 12:30:19
Fair assessment Ace.

I think now that there seems to be a bit more flexibility with incomings and outgoings we will see a different dynamic to the side and Dyche can put his stamp on it.

I remember his earlier Burnley sides having a fair bit about them tbh. Certainly more than what we have had to watch recently.

We have already added a midfield ball carrier in young Tim. Ndiaye can carrry it well as well and looks to be a decent dribbler. If links with this Philogene are accurate, I think we will be pleasantly surprised at how we approach games next season.

08 Jul 2024 14:42:33
Is a prediction the same as a hope?
I hope for a challenge to the top 10 with some mildly entertaining Saturdays and Square pegs in square holes. I won't depress myself with my prediction but it's no where as optimistic as any of the above/ below. I expect a bump of realism soon enough. So many things to fall into place it's just impossible to do anything but dream before the nightmare comes.

08 Jul 2024 14:44:59
I reckon 10th-15th would be a realistic position with top 10 considered as a good season based on our current squad.

08 Jul 2024 14:55:24
I love it , top 6 I'd take 7th, if we strengthen in the right areas, no points deductions I recon we could have an outside chance, also if we keep dcl or a replacement can score at least double figures, not a lot to ask for but I don't see why not.

08 Jul 2024 17:50:14
Thelwell appears to be trying to bring in players with pace. Think next season you will see the team still give up possession relying on a solid defence. But hope to be better on the counter attack, as we currently have one of the slowest forward lines in the league.

08 Jul 2024 22:24:16
We haven’t brought in that much and we may still see players depart.

I hope we finish in the top half of the table. I expect another relegation scrap. If we could be safe by end of March I would seem that progress on recent years.

I expect a points deduction. Hopefully, there will be others with points deductions also. In a perfect world, other teams will have much greater points deductions than us. I don’t think they will though.
