2019/2020 Championship Predictor

Recommended Posts

See a few folk tipping us for top 4. With the budget cuts Hopkin would need to work miracles to get us there. Still early days but at the moment I'll guess:

Dundee United

Dundee

ICT

Thistle

Dunfermline

Morton 

Ayr

Qots

Alloa

Arbroath

Someone (or two) with a small budget is going to have to finish in the play-offs though. ICT have cut back again for the 3rd year running as well as losing some key players. Morton and Dunfermline have cut back too. Ayr have lost key players and don’t spend much, neither do Queens. Outside the Dundee teams and maybe Partick, everyone else are low-spenders so it could be anyone IMO.

Dundee apparently have the league won with their 7 signed players signed up for next season,  despite United and ICT having settled, experienced teams at this level.  Thus:

Dundee by fucking miles

United

ICT

Thistle

Ayr

Morton

Dunfermline

Arbroath

QOTS

Alloa

1 Partick
2 ICT
3 Dundee United
4 Dundee 
5 Dunfermline
6 Ayr
7 Morton
8 Alloa
9 QotS (Dobbie to score 50 in all comps next season).
10 Arbroath

P5-8 you can probably interchange pretty easily, wouldn't surprise me if Alloa did better than 8th. 
However, with Dunfermline spending money on development fees I reckon they'll be the best of the rest.

We'll see what the squads are before making any predictions but I'd imagine the two Dundee teams will be in the mix for the title come the end of the season.

ICT will make the playoff's definately

For Morton I just hope we stay away from relegation. Being optimistic we may just grab 4th, but Partick may snatch that spot.

Ayr comfortable midtable and the Pars & Queens to hover above  9th

Alloa impressed me this season but can't see anything other than 9th with Arbroath going down again.

Guessing we will be favourites for coming back down but depends on what happens with Goodwin for me. DC ain't going anywhere. We have a good keeper, solid back 4 and a few good midfield players who are well capable of doing well in the championship. But in attack and out wide we have only really got Bobby Linn just now. So hopefully that is where we improve, and if we improve enough, maybe pull off a few good signings and quality loans I reckon we could do pretty well. But need to wait and see what happens.

United to win league after Neilson has bedded himself in, Thistle second for similar reasons, Dundee enough for third. Middle of table similar to way it always is and us and Alloa battling it out nearer the bottom.

  1.  Partick

I'll be optimistic with our under 20's side but we could equally have a falkirk-esque season and be in a relagation battle by Christmas

Utd will do the usual of playing terrible but being there or there abouts by grinding out narrow wins, Dundee won't find it as easy as they might think it will be and have a funny feeling Partick will hit the ground running this year, ICT will be a better more settled side and I think Ayr might struggle to keep up last seasons success, I think loosing Goodwin may well be the nail in the coffin for Alloa for this division

slight change as i've seen McPake is now getting the Dundee job instead of Goodwin as a last minute twist! I'll bump alloa up a position for that

Why are all the Ayr fans predicting that we are going to stomp the league?

Is it that subliminal McCall fascination taking hold?

When we're signing public schoolboys from England who are still doing their exams there has to be a wee bit of trepidation but they're all ones we've been scouting for ages so at least it sounds like planning has gone into it, rather than the Falkirk's Next Top Model approach to recruiting. But yes, we could easily be in a relegation scrap!

I think you’ll be quite shite tbh. But still better than half of the league.

Couldn't agree more I'm actually quite pleased with the signings so far as theres obviously been thought gone into it and not just a scatter gun approach as per Falkirk, but at the same time it's a team that is unlikely to gel straight away and it's more a team that will take a season or 2 to find it's feet so future looks good but i'm writing off a promotion push for the next couple of seasons from my expectations and consolidation is the main target

How does ICT being better than last season but finishing 5th below Dunfermline work?

Because I think there will be other better teams in the league than you (the top 3 i posted) and being optimistic with Dunfermline, realistically i think you will finish above us again but we are an unknown quantity right now so went for best case for us rather than being pessimistic 

you can still be a better team but it depends who is around you season to season, plus I think 3rd flattered you last year tbh if you looked at the season as a whole, you're last 1/4 was brilliant and fair play but it only tells part of a story, just like our 5 wins in a row saving our ass from relegation and that wee run flattered us

It really didn't.  We were clearly the best outwith the 2 teams trying to buy the league.

In true Thistle fashion, I’m predicting relegation for us and Dundee United to DEFINITELY get promoted ;)

Terrifying, ain’t it?

I'm cautiously optimistic about this season, though. Caldwell clearly has his flaws, but the quality in this division isn’t very good at all, which should negate his inadequacies. We'll again have one of the larger budgets in it to go along with the contacts he has in the game, so I do think we’ll be in & around the playoff hunt.
