I don't think we'll do well this year, looking at our transfers. But I'll hold off a few more days to see what everyone else has done. I haven't paid much attention to other clubs so far.

I look into my crystal ball and realise it might have a few cracks, which bends the light in strange ways:

1. Feyenoord
2. VVV Venlo
3.
4.
...
16. P$V
17. Ajax
18. FC Twente

Best attack: Fernandez/Schaken/Cisse
Worst attack: Ajax

Best defense: Feyenoord

Revelations: Rick van Haaren to lead VVV Venlo to 2nd place and then receive offer to join Manchester United. Wally to run out and buy a replica kit of VVV with Van Haaren's number.

I really don't take pre-season predictions too seriously, eh? Sorry. :rollani:

Actually, one serious prediction is that Castaignos will recover his scoring form -unfortunately- and knock in at least 15 goals for Twente. This makes me sad.

Nice one to read back. No one expected AZ to finish at the rightside of the table and Utrecht the other way round. Also Zwolle did much better than expected.

I was quite rubbish with my positive player predictions. Although Bizot at least became a starter. Luckily I was wrong with the champion as well. :-D

Sneijder jr fooled some peeps here with his 2 goals against PSV in the season opener. At the end he was a flop again.

Steijn and Wouters were no where near a sack. Only Steve Mac was.

Lol @ everyone thinking that Roorda would be the NEC revelation while Breuer would be the flop. Things where exactpy the other way around.

Боље да се кајем зато што јесам, него зато што нисам

Pretty much on the money. Shame the "few more days" turned into eternity.

I got some of the top places correct, RKC and Roda to struggle and McLaren to be sacked!

I swear I put Utrecht down to finish much higher at first!
