    Iorfa at Wolves is one to watch for me, could become a quality defender in the future.
    Also be good to see if Aden Flint can continue his form from League One, always good to see a Nottingham lad do well

    Demari (sp) Gray at Birmingham is a player who I think will be playing a higher level at some point.

    That McGugan fella at Wednesday, playing as a #10? We should have tried that. Always thought his best position would be off of a striker, with no defensive responsibility.

    Wednesday kept 17 clean sheets last season I think it was. If they can sort their attack out without compromising their defence, they could push for playoffs.

    MK Dons have a lot of momentum and seem to go out to attack home or away. Don't think they will trouble the relegation places, be interesting to see if their approach works more often than not.

    I've championed him on the forum for a couple of seasons now, Sam Clucas, ex Mansfield and Chesterfield will have a big impact at Hull City. I still can't believe nobody at Forest was willing to take a punt on him when he was at the Stags. We've missed out there.

    Wednesday and Wolves will have good seasons. Hull will be there or thereabouts, as will Derby. Not sure about Burnley, Ipswich will be organised but beatable. Boro will be strong, again but the league is there for the taking.

    I think Fulham might be a bit of a surprise and do well. At the very least a lot better than last season anyway.

    In no particular order the top 6 will be:

    Boro
    Wolves
    Derby
    Burnley
    Hull
    QPR

    If I had to pick a top 2 I would say Burnley and Boro but in fairness could be any of those I've picked. We won't be troubling that top 6 I would predict.

    Boro, Derby, QPR and Hull top four.

    Sheff W, Leeds, Brighton and Forest vying for the next two spots.

    He was the only defender last season that kept Antonio in his pocket.
