I believe you already answered your own doubts. My opinion, we are only currently 1 point outside of the playoffs...........not a million miles away........

The league is amazingly weak,(other than Wolves), this season. I don't see why not, we are there or there abouts, why not?.......

Good enough for the playoffs ? Of course, there are about 15 teams good enough for the playoffs.

Good enough to win said playoffs? Maybe, it's a lottery at that point with injury, suspension, refereeing and of course luck playing large parts.

Good enough for the premiership - No not by a long way, will require 10-15 new players
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

I'd have the players turn up in clown suits for 1 season if it meant we got 100 M plus

To get into the play-offs we would need a run of wins. In my eyes we had our chance in the last 4 games against mediocre opposition. We will face higher placed teams in the next games. Can`t see us getting enough points.
And we have maybe 4 players with PL potential.

For most teams that go up the first season is then all about survival. I don't see any team as being great this season so it is all about if we can get on a run then get the bit of luck you need in the playoffs.
