2014-15 Championship League Predictions

Recommended Posts

Interesting to note 5 posts to date predicting 2 sides going up. I reckon falkirk will be in the mix as the "favoured 3" will be going full pelt to take points off each other opening up the league to others. Queens are one to watch in a second term under McIntyre with a settled team who finished strongly last year.

Id be happy just to stay up this year, it'll be closer at the bottom than it will at the top. Hearts and rangers to be ahead by some distance.

1. Rangers - Notwithstanding financial meltdown, they can't f**k this up surely?

2. Hearts - Some good players should see them be a comfortable second and get through the playoffs.

3 - Queens - Consistency is a massive advantage, a very settled and a squad that's been more or less in tact for 2 years plus filling the holes should hopefully give us a good season.

4 - Falkirk - Couple of big losses but I'd say they should still be a tricky side.

5 - Hibs - It would be hilarious if one of the big 3 missed the playoffs, Hibs still haven't signed anyone, a rookie manager and a culture of pishness so I think they have the best chance of missing out.

6 Livingston - Not a fantastic squad but you would think that McGlynn will have them organised to stay clear of the drop.

7. Dumbarton - Continuity at P/T is tough but I'd back Iain Murray to keep them up.

8. Raith Rovers - Can't score and can't defend, apart from that they are fine.

9. Cowdenbeath - They need someone to step up big time up front.

10. Alloa Athletic - Their squad is pretty poor and I don't see them scoring too many.

Hibs could be in the division for years, a la Dundee in recent times.

alloa athletic ®

rangers will now finish above hibs cause they sacked butcher and have still to build a squad and above hearts cause they are not bothered whether they go up or not this season. rangers have signed boyd who will score 30+ goals and rangers will score 100 goals this season, but falkirk despite their terrible record against the world record holders will win the league, simply because i don't want this to be a complete walk over it will probably end up being.

playoffs will be good for the character.

rangers will win the league by more than 25 points and score 100 goals. :rolleyes:

The only thing which could prevent Rangers from winning it would be another admin. Should that happen - and it really might - then the impact of a 25 point penalty will largely be dependent on timing. It would also depend on its nature. If this time they were required to lose players, then that would be likely to matter. All in all, I could see an admin costing Rangers the title, but keeping them in play-off places.

Based entirely on the current squads - as it's the thing we can go by:

Cowden and Alloa will be in the bottom two. Both head poor league seasons last and haven't improved the quality in their side thus far. Alloa have retained the majority of their squad who were abysmal in the final 1/3 of the season but I just can't see where the goals will come from from them. We have retained our defensive players but need to try and replace that front 2.

Above that will be Livi and Dumbo. I don't think Livi have a good squad but they won't concede too many and that coupled with McGlynn will make them hard to beat. Won't be pretty but effective. Dumbo won't have as good a season as last but they have so much experience throughout the side they won't be in any real danger - unless they don't get another striker in.

Raith should be looking towards 4th place. I think Murray's ineptitude will mean they won't put up a real challenge but that should be there goal. 6th will realistically be where they end up.

Falkirk and QOTS to battle it out for 4th and at the moment I fancy Queens to get it. Largely settled squad which is vital. Falkirk have Loy though

Hearts and Hibs to battle out 2nd. Coils go either way but at the moment Hearts have a much better squad so can't see past them.

Rangers to win the league by 10 points.

Agree with most of that. Livy may well bring in another striker but they wont replace McNulty with the same kind of quality.

Not convinced Rangers winning margin will be as much as 10 points either

Clocks go back in October. Isn't that when your season normally de-rails.

That's Bound to stop eventually! Going on today's performance, albeit it was only a friendly, he's got us about right, no reason why we can't be aiming for a play-off spot, but in saying that I expect us to finish 7th again with livi, cowden and Alloa below us
