Where will we finish?

Come on then Rams fans (and none Rams fans as well of course) where do we all think we are going to end up this season.

It was a good top 4 finish last season, but there's a new manager, and more players have left than come in, and the squad being too small cost us last season, now it is smaller.

I think it could be a long hard season, but who knows.

I've splitt the poll in to a few diferent categories, which I think is better than choosing from all the places you can have.

I've gone for the top half, I just can't see us making the play offs again, but while we still have some of the quality players we have in midfield and up front, we'll stay in the top half.

If he goes anywhere, it will be Sunderland, but hopefully they won't be able to afford, he will only be allowed to go if they meet the banks valuation (note it's up too the bank and not the club whether he is sold )

Without Rasiaks goals it will be a struggle, he must stay.

I voted top half, new manager and don't think it will be the same Rams as last season but overall it will be a good season result wise.

To be honest i would'nt like to say at all, because the league is so unpredictable, but i think we did in some ways over acvhieve last year, but this year playoff qualification may be difficult, because the league is very strong this year, looking at teams like norwich and crystal palace who havn't sold any of their key players.
But if im goin to say a final postion ill say 10th, i can see us finishin comftably in the top half, but i think we will get a better idea at Christmas

i have also voted. u can pretty easily guess what my prediction is!

You could be right, no talk of promotion in these parts anymore, even Phil Brown is talking about a relegation battle, if we don't buck our ideas up.

Oh come on, I think it´s not that bad for Derby. The three teams on the relegation places are weaker than you. I´ve just voted for top half. You´ll make it onto the 12th place.

Thing with Derby is, we don't do mid table, we either have a really good season, or a really bad season. We play nice football, but we don't seem to have that cutting edge too win games at the moment, also the fans are starting to get restless, if they get on the teams back like they did at the Leicester game, playing at home becomes a disadvantage, rather than an advantage, and that won't help matters.

Derby won't get relegated and I think we will be still at the top half of the table by the end of the season, its currently a bad time but I think things can improve, this team has shown they can play well and Phil Brown is a good manager, I still say 12-8 place, not expected playoffs

Problem is, alot of fans won't be happy with mid table, some think we should be playing in the champions league

The league is still very tight, and there's time to turn it around, a good end of season run like last season, and who knows where we will end up.
