2017-18 PREDICTIONS

It’s that time of year again! The podcast team have been watching Sky Sports News on a loop to keep an eye on Natalie Sawyer and Hayley McQueen the progress of our League One rivals, read hundreds of somewhat biased internet blogs, and stuck a pin in their last, falling-apart-at-the-seams copy of Rothmans to deliver their well-informed and deeply considered verdict on how the division will look come the end of the season.

We’re going to be very wrong, aren’t we? But hey, it’s just a bit of fun. Last year, Stu and Paul were the Princes of Prognostication, correctly predicting the fate of five teams. Can they repeat the trick this season? Probably not, to be fair. But it will certainly be interesting to see how they get on this time around.
