bottom half of the table. I don’t even want to take a stab at how low we’ll go.

I reckon it will be a special season and the league will end with teams in alphabetical order, exactly as they are currently.
That would see us safe and Wigan, Swansea and Stoke relegated with Barnsley champions.

I think we may be pleasantly surprised come May. Probably not in the promotion mix but comfortably safe all season.

Does this new kit by the way (home one) hark back to 1994/95. I'm sure we would all take a repeat of that season

Sure Bolton would too but they probably wont see till December.

What would happen to their results and other teams? Assume that everything would be wiped out which could have a big impact on table.

As much as Bolton broke my heart that day (I thought the likes of Man United etc were coming to Elm Park at half time despite big Ron's insistence we would have to ground share with the Swine), I hope they survive this. It's incredibly sad that an established club is collapsing and a warning for all. I believe they will be OK, they may lose their whole side (if I was Parky I'd get out as soon as possible) and they will go down again no doubt about it but they will be fine although they will have to rebuild from the bottom tier I'm afraid.

Bury on the other hand are a state. Again hope they are OK but I think they could well go under. Is it fair to wipe off results against them when that could be the difference between promotion and relegation.

Only option is to potentially expel them and make League Two a 23 team league and promote Newport as the playoff runners up

This really, there are people in the press who could paid to list how they think the table will end up and they're wasting their time so I don't think I'll bother doing it for free

This will certainly not be very accurate. I'm nervous about how difficult I found it to pick out sides for relegation.

I've been playing with this and seems to me there is a very even field
with no truly outstanding clubs, no clear relegation candidates.

I wasn't overly impressed by Boro in Game 1 and I think Luton will survive,
but after that it is really, truly guesswork.

I think Reading will be top half, maybe slightly better.

1 Cardiff 1-7 Colin Strikes Again!
2 Leeds 1-6 I think, this time they will make sure
============================================
3 WBA 1-4 Will be thereabouts all season
4 Forest 4-10 More likely mid-table, but just think…
5 Fulham 1-8 Sadly, likely to challenge
6 Brentford 2-8 Lots of big changes but maybe next year?
===================================================
7 Derby 5-10 A middling season?
8 Reading 6-15 Positive Dark Horse
9 Stoke 5-9 Could be anything, frankly
10 Preston 5-12 Could make top six, solid side
11 Blackburn 6-15 Solid, safe, but not quite top six?
12 Boro 5-12 Solid, safe, but not quite top six?
13 Wigan 7-21 Thought they looked decent when they climbed to safety. Might surprise
14 Swansea 7-21 Solid, safe, but not quite top six?
15 Hull 9-22 Possible relegation?
16 Bristol 2-16 Negative Dark Horse
17 Wednesday 9-18 Solid, safe, but not quite top nine?
18 Huddersfield (4) 4-19 Might Bounce Back, might crash and burn
==================================================================
19 Birmingham 12-21 No Idea
20 Luton 12-22 Should be OK, but stretched
21 Charlton 12-23 Top of Bottom third would be a result.
22 QPR (6) 7-22 Either challenge or bottom six
23 Barnsley 18-24 Do well to stay up
24 Millwall 18-24 Do well to stay up
