    As the title suggests and based on your feelings as of today.

    Couldn’t do 20 options so had to cluster a few together.

    Would be a cracking first return that would. And a good platform. God only knows what they’ll do in January and next summer.

    I don't think we will win the league this coming season but well be mid table at the finale.

    11th to 14th hopefully, barring bad injuries, God forbid. Hoping for a comfortable season, not being near those bottom 5 positions. Even if we do finish 17th, it will be a massive achievement- massive. We would build next season from there.

    I think we'll be top 4 in October, then anything is possible.

    I selected 7th to 10th.

    I think with Nuno's quality and the players we have then we should be sitting comfortably in the lower top-half of the Prem through most of the season.

    11th to 14th.

    Too much expectation of Neves and Moutinho IMHO. Feel we are light in the middle of the park.

    Hope I am wrong.

    Injuries and suspensions will have a big say in where we finish, so it's hard to predict, mid table seems very achievable barring any major setbacks.

    Truthfully I haven’t got a clue...Anywhere between 7th or 17th but probably the higher end than lower end

    Top half finish is there for the taking, no question.

    Scrolling back through the last few seasons, the team in 10th have barely won a third of their matches. Are we really thinking we'll struggle to win 13-15 games this season?

    It won't be easy, and injuries will be a nightmare to a small squad. But we're more than capable.

    And just imagine if we're in the top 8 come January, and can replenish the squad where needed for a second half of the season push...

    I think we can get 6th-8th. I really do.

    Changed my mind so many times, having us top four at one stage

    That isn't going to happen now I have seen who everybody else has signed or kept, as well as our own slightly disappointing effort.

    14th is my guess

    Add Patricio, Jimenez, Moutinho, Traore and Dendoncker to our title winning side and off set Barry with Jonny. I think we’ll be fine. I’d be more worried about meshing together Fulham’s excellent signings over the next few months or keeping Warnocks warriors fighting.

    I would put us ahead of:

    Newcastle
    Bournemouth
    Brighton
    Cardiff
    Crystal Palace
    Huddersfield
    Watford

    On a par with:
    Southampton, Fulham, Burnley

    and behind 9 teams
    Man City, United, Liverpool, Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Leicester, West Ham

    That means comfortable mid-table.
    Last time we were in the PL we were definitely bottom 5-6 for sure. Perhaps more realistically bottom 3 material.

    Of course nothing goes to plan or objective squad quality. Last season Burnley punched above their weight and Arsenal underperformed. So much is down to effective management, squad mentality and referee decisions.

    I could see us strengthen in the winter and push towards 10th but 14th would be ok. Bottom third would be a poor season.

    I have to admit swinging from optimism to pessimism frequently. I'm usually optimistic and same time last year predicted 2nd with Fulham 1st.
    This year I've put us in the 7-10 group.

    11th to 14th for me, I am hoping to feel a bit more 7th to 10th in a few weeks but am erring on the side of caution at the moment.

    I went 16th, it's tougher than most are hoping for, I've factored in that we will lose both home and away to the " big six"

    Im going for 16th which id be more than happy with. Just think our lack of depth in wing back options may stop us from pushing on.

    11th to 14th

    Think we will get a mid table finish. Generally very happy with our transfers but fear we are a little light in defence. Get an injury or two an we could struggle there.

    There are definitely three teams worse than us but I really don't think we're as great as we think we are in the Premier League. We will survive but think we're lacking big time on wing backs which our whole game relies on. I think our midfield might not be good enough.

    I think we'll take 12 points off the 'big 6' teams. From the other 26 games i see us getting 40 points so just sneaking the top half of the table for me

    11th-14th although I would change that immediately if Boly got injured. I hope he stays fit as without him our defence to me looks a little suspect in terms of quality for the premier league. I also don't feel our wingbacks have enough quality to break top 10 and they are crucial to this formation. I am Happy with forward, center midfield and Goal keeping options though.

    11th to 14th. With Wolves being competitive throughout the season rather than past efforts where it was backs to the wall stuff. No fear.

    Other than the established top six, who has better midfield options than Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker and Saiss?

    11th-14th, defence can and will be caught out on occasion I think, but can’t really argue with the quality further up the field.

    OK, I'm in the US and it's 2:30am....why are you still awake?:cool: I have no problem with Neves although I think it won't be a picnic for him. Moutinho, Premier League could get found out. Think the other two might get found out.

    11-14th maybe higher outside the top six there isn't much to be afraid of

    I think we will finish 9th or 10th. We are better than quite a few teams but behind the top 6 and west spam/ Everton.

    I'd love a top 10. Even more so a great start so we're well clear of any danger by the start of the FA Cup which might free us up to have a go at it.

    We had some good results against the big six last time we were in the premiership, especially at home, I think arsenal are the only ones we did not manage to beat.

    Yep. 11-14th for me too. An injury to Boly and I think we look a little light defensively.

    There isn’t one squad that I could say with 100% certainty we would finish above (but equally, outside the Top 6, there isn’t one where it’s beyond the possibility we could finish ahead of).

    Either way, we’ll be exciting to watch and it will be much more fun than last time.

    A lot to do and it'll take a while for everything to gel with such a huge change in playing staff.
    Massive, massive competition out there. But at least this time we are properly prepared for the contest.
    A mid to lower finish is realistic.
    I'd settle for 15th.
    Then move on next season .....
