    Like for like given the much more restricted budget and lower club profile last season, compare that to this season, more money and higher profile. What do you feel will prove to be the harder challenge, PL survival or gaining promotion from the championship?

      At least in the championship we were a bigger fish. Lower mid table obscurity will be a huge result for us however I think the bed wetters will freak with anything less than a top 3 position.. If we survive this season then expect us to find it easier to attract players next season thats for sure.

      It took us 6 attempts to gain promotion from the Championship, hopefully we can gain Premiership survival before the 6th attempt

      Getting promoted.

      I'd say there are as many as 17 teams in the Champ that will start the season looking to get in play offs or better, vs 13 in the Prem who will start with the objective of avoiding relegation.

      So a case of 3/17 (18%) vs 10/13 (77%) to achieve the goal ... a simplistic view but feels about right.

      Only exception perhaps is that the 17 will reduce fairly quickly in the last third of season whereas the 13 probably won't

      I think survival in this first season will be as hard as it was to get out of the Championship but, if we succeed, it'll get slightly less difficult each time.

      A lot of our fans bitch and moan when we lose, whoever the opposition. I don't expect this season to be any different sadly.

      I'm leaning the same way, everyman and his dog is trying to buy their way out of the champ!
