    I believe I predicted 7th.

    I did convince myself though, that should we scrape into the play-offs, the pressure would be off, and we might just win them.
    The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Was hoping play-offs, with a change of luck and actually getting that trip to Wembley

      Slightly disappointed that's not happened!

      (Although of course, that's now a possiblity with Spurs away )

      If we kept our players (check) and got a new striker (check) and strengthen the back four (check) I thought we'd make the top 2. I didn't expect us to be this consistent.

      Surely there was a poll thread - but I can't find it.

      I knew we'd be up there but expected another season of playoff disappointment TBH. I simply didn't expect Norwich to be as bad as they have been (I did expect Villa to fail though). Didn't see Hudderfield or Reading coming at all either, thought playoffs probably would have been us, the massive, Derby and one other.

      I think I said that if we kept our best players (which we did) then we would be favourites to go up

      This is what I had hoped for. Top 3 or 4 with always a shout to challenge the top 2 who I thought would be Newcastle and Norwich. With Derby and SWed in the mix. I remember when we bought Duffy I thought why him? and gradually came to the conclusion we could be top 2 and stay there from middle/end of September.

      Looking at the table once all relegation/promotion issues had been decided from all leagues I genuinely expected 6-10th as our most likely finishing spot.

      When Murray joined and started firing on all cylinders I grew more confident of a play off place but that was about it.

      In Tony's words we strengthened from a position of strength but I never expected this. It's truly magical and once the furore of the season is lost in the midsts of time we'll look back at the final table and remember the legends of 2016/17 as possibly the best Albion team of all time.

      Play offs, no further.
      After Sheff Weds away, I revised it to possible last day autos, after Sheff Weds home, I revised it to promoted without a doubt... we proved we had both the mettle and the class.
