    Because we avoided relegation on GD and have only made one addition.

    Sometimes teams come up from League one on a winning streak and continue and do quite well. Plus they are a reasonable size club so may invest.

    Because more money has been put on them than us. That's how odds work.

    Because we are NFFC and everyone knows what a pile of shite we've been for nigh on 20 years - they have missed the quiet changes that we have made and we are staying under the radar- long may it continue - by Christmas we'll be odds on to go up and the mighty blades odds on to go back down where they belong

    Typical of the high expectations that causes all the moaning and disappointment when we are no way near.

    Us and promotion shouldn't really be in the same sentence this season.

    I'm all for a bit of optimism but come on!

    Because we have a below average squad and are struggling to bring players in. They are a club on the up.

    28/1 to win the Championship
    11/1 for Promotion
    5/1 for Relegation
    5/4 top half finish
    8/13 bottom half finish

    Sky bet.

    God isn't that depressing more likely to be relegated than promoted, bottom half than top - we all need to put a load of cash on promotion etc to make those odds more favourable!

    What on earth difference would that make? Do you get more happiness from the odds the bookies give over what actually happens?

    Sheff U are media darlings. A 'big' club who 'deserve' to be in a higher league.

    15/16 Season Brighton were favs to go down before the first game, so I'd take the odds on us with a pinch of Salt.

    I have got a good feeling about this coming season.
    With the home support we will have and a turn in fortune in our away games I can see us having a good season. I think we will all enjoy the way Warburton will set his team out to play.

    I agree with Hawkeye. A few more goals scored away and we'll be in a much better place even without a great upturn in form

    Football is a simple game. Just as well really.

    Bookies form a market before any money is wagered, based on various things but a large part related to how likely they anticipate the outcomes. For some reason they consider Sheffield United as more likely to win promotion than us.
