Have Dundee bounced back from a relegation in recent history? 

Yes last time we went down. Thanks for asking.

I'll wait and see what the squads are first.

 

But I certainly wouldn't put us or United outside the top 4 as both sets of American owners are going to throw cash at this.

Seem to recall you predicted us to be relegated last year as well. Also seem to remember you predicting a laughable 4th/5th place finish the year before in League One. 

Yawn.

 

Looks like my tactic is working then eh? :rolleyes:

My prediction is that the predictions on here will be as accurate as the ones on last year’s thread.

1-2 On the face of things Dundee and Dundee United with their premiership level budgets should be fighting it out for the top two places but shit doesn't always work out that way. Dundee are managerless whilst Yinited made a c**t of the playoffs 

Below that I'm not sure. I hope Thistle can make the top four but we don't have a Scott McDonald type striker finisher signed up yet...

ICT will hope to build on a decent season and will be aiming for top 4 too.

Dunfermline and Morton are cutting costs apparently but Pars have signed a few players and will hope they are less shite this season. Morton on the face of things have made a good managerial appointment. Will Hopkin have funds from the casket to invest?

Both will be looking to push for 4th but will probably fail hilariously.

QoS and Ayr had fairly contrasting seasons. Queens have signed Kevin Holt and have AJ back in charge but Dunfermline fans will possibly say that's not a good thing. They still have Dobbie which could edge things over their southern farming neighbours , Ayr who have lost a couple of their too players already. Will McCall find another gem or even provide a home for ex-jag Kris Doolan?

Alloa and Arbroath as part-time teams will be aiming for survival first of all but you just never know with the fragility of all teams in the league. 

If Goodwin leaves Alloa could struggle but they've coped with managerial departures in the recent past and have a knack of finding the next best young manager candidate.

Arbroath have the Bunnet in charge and will relish the Angus derbies with Yinited. They'll probably start as favourites for the drop.

 

 

But not the ones with Dundee?

Allot will depend on who Dundee bring in as manager obviously, they've came off the back of what can fairly be described as a shocking couple of years in the Premier, being near the bottom before succumbing to a grim relegation, can sometimes leave almost a linger of shiteness. The plus point is that they'll have a new manager, a fairly new team and an absolute shed load of cash comparative to everyone else. 

Thistle ended last season pretty decently, don't think Caldwell is as bad as made out on here and I reckon they'll be fairly comfortably in the playoffs. Inverness to carry on not losing allot of games, winning a few and drawing hundreds. 

Next set of group between Morton-QoTS and Dunfermline(hopefully) could go either way, I'm counting on Hopkin hitting the ground running, however he did take a bit of time at Livi, if he does start well with dece recruitment they'll absolutely be eyeing up a playoff spot. AJ will do OK with QoTS, he'll get one last good season with Dobbie before going in a massive tailspin next, AJ does well when he has a goalscorer in the team and he builds teams around them quite well. 

 

I hope Dunfermline aren't shite, truthfully though I'm still apprehensive as f**k about Danny Devine at right back, Comrie at right back will need to step up and we are still lacking natural wide men, there's time to rectify that in the window. 

Think Ayr are really going to struggle, their form in the second half of last season wasn't great and losing the likes of Smith and Shankland I can see really hurting them, Rose for Muirhead? Ouch. 

Alloa were a goal away from finishing behind a turgid Falkirk side, Arbroath will come on top of that battle of the PT teams.

Prediction above is likely to change. 

 

My tips as the current Championship Predictor title holder:-

  • Morton to have a highly improved upon season with the incoming manager David Hopkin.
  • Inverness CT to consolidate on last season, John Robertson proving himself to be one of the best managers in this division.
  • Dunfermline Athletic to have a tough season, with the announcement of playing primarily youth players.

First edit already after hearing McPake has got the Dundee job and Goodwin is staying at Alloa Athletic.

Reckon there will be a much tighter race at the top this year. United's budget with Neilson's experience for a full season takes it for me, but they won't make it as easy as it should be.

Opposite of this season at the bottom however imo. Think there will be one team that slips away in the first 8-10 matches and won't manage to regain ground on the other runners throughout the season. Whether this is Alloa or Arbroath or Pars is still yet to be seen.

I don't think there can be many arguments left. The Scottish Championship really is THE greatest league in the world.

It’s obviously too early to predict for sure but I’ll say what I think at the moment.

The Dundee sides should have too much money for anyone else. County and United showed last year that despite having 4 absolute balloons in charge between them, they still comfortably finished in the top 2. So no matter who they have as managers I think they’ll be fine.

I think Partick will get third because I’ve liked Caldwell’s recruitment so far. If they do get any of Rudden/Miller/Boyd alongside players such as Cardle, Bannigan, Spittal, Slater, Fitzpatrick etc I’d say that’s a very good side for this level.

3rd to 8th could be in any order for me. ICT and Ayr are losing some key players whilst Morton and Dunfermline seem to be cutting back/rebuilding. While Johnston is a bit thick, he seems to suit Queens with his attacking play far more than Naysmith did. Of these sides though, I’d trust in Robertson and Hopkin to make the best of a limited budget (yet again cut back for ICT) so I’d have them 4th and 5th. It could be a real struggle for some of these sides though.

There could potentially be a bunch of shite F/T teams this year, but given Alloa just scraped survival against absolute shite like QOTS & Falkirk, and finished below even more absolute shite, I think it’ll be the play-offs for them this year especially without Goodwin. I haven’t seen Arbroath much but they’ve lost a few players and won’t fly up the league like the previous promoted F/T sides like Ayr and Livi. I’d expect them to go straight back down.

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
