I can see why, based on our pre-season form, we are one of the favourites. Personally I'd be content with top 7 but I do think top 3 is definitely possible.

Well the same guy did predict us to be Champions and Accy to be relegation candidates last year

Seriously the worst publication out there. It’s worse than the Mail.

I read them both. I get my news from many sources. I like having my opinions challenged. I think Reuters and the BBC have it and the only place I refuse to get news from is Fox News. Rancid bumlicking the Orange Waster in the White House

Whatever you think of the paper as a whole and its left-wing politics, the sports writing is up there among the best. The Guardian Football Weekly podcast is also very good.

That was rumoured to be his release clause so more than likely.

He's underestimated our team spirit, fitness, pre-season form and new feel-good factor.

I think it's very fair, hope he's wrong about the players struggling to adapt mind and our position obviously!

If you carry on and read the Swindon review it just adds up that doesn’t like flitcroft, hopefully prove him wrong and end up in the top 3

No, he's going off the Swindon and Bury fans that in the majority don't like Flitcroft.

I don't really see how that can matter/bother any Stag fans though!

In what reality can you look at this Stags squad and the Grimsby one and think that the Mariners will be promoted and us not sneaking in to the top 7?

The guys clearly been sniffing the pva glue pot.

We have a fairly gentle start to the season so we need to start picking up points quickly. We should be up there challenging along with County, Lincoln and MK Dons.

I enjoyed a few hours in the pub on Sunday reading the fans' views on League 1 and League 2 in Football 2019 (£4.99) although the Wycombe Chairman did the write up for The Chair Boys! Dean Foulkes did a good little review for Mansfield Town.
