2019/2020 Championship Predictor

Recommended Posts


Yes you deserve to be in the league based off of winning L1 last year but that counts for almost nothing next year.

Looking at the squad you currently have there’s not a great deal of Championship standard players in it.


Wouldn't take that post seriously at all.

Keeper, back 4 and 2 centre mids are overall on a par with Alloa id say. However think they are currently or were stronger out wide and upfront with guys like Zanatta, Sheilds and Aitchison. We only really have Bobby Linn at that standard just now.

  1. Dundee United
  2. Dundee
  3. ICT
  4. Partick Thistle 
  5. Dunfermline
  6. Morton
  7. QOS
  8. Ayr
  9. Alloa
  10. Arbroath

I predict that the top 4 will be very close, and of the teams could win the league. Sadly, Dundees complete rebuild and Utd being fairly settled gives them the edge.

Dunfermline and Morton to be the epitome of mid table safety.

Another mini league with the bottom 4 teams, Dobbies goals in his 40% of league appearances should see them safe, I think Ayr have lost a good few players including Shankland, I think they will struggle.

Can't see anyone being touchy

 

One of your fans went to the Premiership forum, solely to post "1-11: Anyone, 12: St Johnstone" purely because I dared to put Arbroath bottom of the league in my prediction...

Unreal. I take back what I said then.

There's a wee man syndrome at every club to some extent.

We'll be in the bottom half I think, but given how utterly shite we were and finished 5th, then I could be very wrong. I'm thinking 7th or 8th.

I think Dundee United will win the league. I also think Dundee will be comfortably in the playoffs, probably 2nd place. I think Partick will be around our spot unless they dump Caldwell early. Arbroath will be battling at the bottom. They COULD exceed expectations and finish much higher though, given teams are cutting their cloth a bit, and reduces the gap in standard a bit. But I'm settling for bottom two. Same goes for Alloa.

Not much to say about the rest.

Not really any point predicting a table yet, but on Arbroath. Every single year most people predict a part-time side to finish bottom and there are several examples of clubs surviving ahead of full time clubs to make a mockery of fans who dismissed them as a Brechin level joke outfit.

However it’s perfectly logical to asssume part-time clubs will be towards the bottom of the table. Anyone who predicts a side will ‘do a Brechin’ clearly doesn’t appreciate how unprecedentedly terrible Brechin were, and perhaps in a year where full-time clubs are weak (which next season could be with the amount of cuts going on while most of the division was already abysmal last season) another club could even do a Dumbarton 13/14 and finish top half while seriously challenging for the playoffs. The fact is though that the vast majority of the time part-time clubs do find themselves battling relegation and that’s why 8th is seen as success for any of them.

You could argue that coming up as champions by a mile Arbroath are more comparable to some full-timers who’ve established themselves comfortably after winning League One than they are to third or fourth placed sides who’ve been miles off the title then squeezed through the playoffs, but we’ve also seen comfortable title winners go straight back down with less than 20 points before. Also, while Arbroath fans loving him is completely understandable and he’s obviously done a tremendous job,  Campbell doesn’t have a good record at this level.

Brechin were so shit they got relegated again.  It can't be underestimated how unprepared they were for the Championship.  Showing the fundamental flaw of the play offs.  Allowing the chance for 4th out of a 10 team league to gain promotion is ridiculous.

Il happily take 8th. As I predicted earlier in the thread I think we will beat both the Dundee sides at least once this upcoming season, probably at Gayfield.

Arbroath fans, you're in the Championship on merit but underestimate it at your peril. It's a league that has the power to turn previously 'good' teams and players into unknown levels of mediocrity 

Hope you do well but got a feeling you might need a bit of a thicker skin for the road ahead, as will most pars fans!

I think Arbroath will be Top 4 in all honesty...

Seriously, great wee club but 11th or 12th is the best you’ll get.

Ffs. Steaming or on the wind up?

 

Our history is actually pretty shite, we have only won 3 trophies and they've all been in the last 10 year.

 

Fan wise we are probably the best or close to the best PT wise but this league is full of clubs with big supports. United, Dundee, Thistle and Dunfermline all have huge fan bases we are miles away. Morton, Inverness, Qots and Ayr similar to Raith who averaged 1600 last season in comparison to our thousand.

 

DC record in championship isn't actually very good. All for being optimistic but just saying cliched sound bites is only going to come back and bite you on the arse at the end of the season.

Lol sorry fellow red lichtie, just feeling confident for next season and get a bit of banter going with the other guys on here who are clearly writing us off before it starts, we won’t be any pushovers that’s for sure and am sure we will give a real good account of ourselves and shock quite a few teams

Can we now use the term "do a Falkirk" when a full time team, blessed with early season optimism, a healthy budget and decent fanbase, manages to get relegated without the aid of any sort of points deduction or off-field calamity?

Yes.

For example: I can see the Pars DAF (Doing A Falkirk) this season.
