We're supposed to bring in new striking names before August in readiness for the new season but whether we do, how many come on board and who they may be remains open to question.

People said when we were promoted from League One there was slim to no chance in another promotion but we proved them incorrect. Some would argue the squad we possess right now is maybe good enough or wouldn't shame themselves or the club name in the EPL but until we're some way into it it's just not possible to really answer. Al Hamadi came on strong towards end of season and scored a few and while it's a whole different caliber of opponent in the topmost league we got names available that can either partner or start without for at least the first few months and really make an impact.

I think being away for 22 years can work to our advantage. (Most) Teams already there won't be familiar with us and won't know quite how to approach us or what to expect. We caught many out in 2001 and finished fifth position as a new addition and while that's unlikely this time around, the opportunity will be there to upset a few and make impact throughout the season.
I agree! Think we’ll upset a few!
