    Football League Tonight starts at 9pm on Channel 5, then. A welcome change from watching Claridge at silly o'clock on BBC, it must be said.

    All eyes on League One for me. I'm very, very curious as to who will run away with the league. I think Wigan expect it to be them, but Sheffield United will be there or thereabouts and I wouldn't be surprised to see Burton in the play-off mix.

    Can't wait for league 1 this year! Some excellent away days to come and hopefully another successful season with some more youngsters coming through.

    Tick tock.

    Such optimism :')

    I think we'll finish 8th, but I'm doing that thing where I'm slightly underestimating our chances so I can be excited when we get promoted

    Maybe we won't be everyone's favourites to go up, and rightly so, but we've got a first team that can challenge any side, home or away. I feel if we can get off to a good start, we'll be tough to stop. Everything just feels right at the club (although we're a Cellino waking up on the wrong side of the bed away from all that blowing up in our faces).

    I'm going for Boro top, Derby second and Wolves winning the play-offs.

    Can't see Leeds getting into the top 6 either as the three aforementioned teams, Hull, Brentford, QPR, Ipswich and Burnley all have better squads. Leeds, for me, are in the "dark horse" category along with Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham, Cardiff, Blackburn and Brighton - might be top 8 but no more than that.

    Nothing in it for me to predict. I really cant separate a lot of teams. I'll put a twist on it and say I don't think that Bora, Derby or any of the relegated prem teams will get automatically promoted.

    I just don't want Derby or boro promoted. The money they have spent is ridiculous. Doesn't guarantee success, we went up in 13/14 spending nothing till January, which was signing Ashley Barnes.

    Don't know too much about the Championship.

    League One
    Champions: Wigan
    Promoted: Sheffield United
    Play-offs: Barnsley, Bradford, Scunthorpe, Millwall
    Relegated: Crewe, Colchester, Blackpool and Walsall

    League Two
    Champions: Luton Town
    Promoted: Portsmouth, Cambridge
    Play-offs: Notts County, Oxford, Plymouth, Exeter
    Relegated: Crawley and Newport

    From my perspective as a Chesterfield supporter, the transfer window couldn't have been any worse. Sold 3 key players (Clucas £1.3m, Darikwa £650k and Roberts £100k), another (Jimmy Ryan) has left, and Sam Morsy on the verge of leaving. IMO our five best players gone (or almost gone) and we've replaced them with Sylvan Ebanks Blake (good signing but doesn't replace any of those who left), a striker who made 6 appearances in the Conference last season, a midfielder from Sutton Coldfield Town, and a 3rd choice keeper. And we have 2 days before the season starts. Last Tuesday, our CEO promised new players "within 72 hours", and over 200 hours later there's no one. Hopefully you can see why a lot of our fans are so frustrated, especially following on from a great season when we made the L1 play offs and I now fear we will be in a relegation fight all season.

    Hardly "ridiculous". We've spent £9m on 7 players.

    All of this after years of frugality and treading water under Clough and, to an extent, McClaren. I think we deserve a bit of a blowout, to be honest. Especially now the FFP rules have been relaxed a little bit.

    Tbf, i would place the majority of the blame with the owner Dave Allen who is just asset stripping. He claims that 30% of money from player sales is reinvested into the squad with 70% going on debt, but we haven't seen so much as 1% yet. In January we sold the country's top scorer Eoin Doyle for £850k and replaced him with a £10k league 2 player who Cheltenham (who later got relegated to non league) didn't want.

    Well they're not - more like Leicester; willing to spend if necessary but a squad assembled with good financial sense, rather than qprs throw money at the problem until it's fixed approach
