Expectations Low

In a recent poll carried out by mcfconline.co.uk 74% of those polled have little expectation that the 2006/07 season will be an improvement on last season's showing.

Only 14% of those polled believe City are capable of a top ten finish next season.
9% believe things will get worse and City will be relegated.

The poll is indicitive of the general feelings of malaise amongst City supporters. Many believe the club has once more shown a lack of ambition in the transfer market that will be rewarded by a relegation battle at best.

If there are to be no major signings in the coming weeks it will be hard to see City maintaining an average crowd of much above 40,000 next season. It seems expectations are low which may in turn keep some people away.

I think it has something to do with the dreadful run of results you finished the season with!

yeah keep the faith, with a couple of decent signings you should e ok, the youth players all have a years experience now, and pearce as manager, you got a lot to look forward to!

Samaras will improve, Cole will be back, Vassell will be fitter, Dabo will strengthen the midfield, more youngsters will break through - exciting times, I predict top ten finish.

It can only get better.

You got a good base to work on and I think you will be pushing for a top twelve spot

It is going to be a very interesting season ahead, a number of the lower clubs are buying well and look a lot stronger going in to the new season, I think we will see some of the bigger name clubs struggling mid table or below.
