    So with the Premier League kick-off now less than two weeks away and the Football League starting next weekend, I thought it would be a decent time to ask you guys how you think the next footballing year will go. This has nothing to do with RAWMOK's wonderful prediction game and so it's just for a bit of fun.

    Following on from my predictions I've got a feeling Redmond could have a brilliant season. On the fringes of the England squad, settled at Saints and I think this could be the season it all clicks for him.

    Are some of you actually for real on here? Finishing 5th, 6th, 7th<laugh>

    I admire the optimism , but surely you cant believe that?

    What's the point of being a fan if you're not optimistic at this stage? The squad has bags of talent which they didn't fullfill last season. I for one feel that Redmond could take the league by storm and be the surprise inclusion in the World Cup squad.

    Why not? Last season we finished 8th ... the general consensus was that we underperformed. No harm in thinking we can improve on that.

    If you can't optimistic before a ball is kicked, when can you :)
