Considering the near disaster that was last season, I don't know why people are predicting Pats will finish so high up the table. Sure, there have been plenty of new signings, but the same thing happened before the 2017 season began. I sure hope there'll be a big improvement, but we'll wait to see. 

You have to ask, was last season's poor show down to the manager or the players?

From my perspective, I'm factoring in the second half or maybe last third of the season just gone as cause for relative optimism. The results and performances improved massively. Almost all the key personnel have been retained except Jordi Balk who admittedly will be a big loss, but hopefully Kevin Toner slots in well as a replacement. On top of that, the squad has been strengthened especially in midfield and up front. The preseason friendlies seem to have gone very well too. A top half finish should be a reasonable expectation anyway.

Hopefully. One of the main reasons that we found ourselves in such a state half way through was the reluctance of Liam Buckley to change things when results weren't going our way. Week-in, week-out he was doing the same things. I agree Balk will be a big loss, but I'm still cautiously optimistic about the new season!

Pats are a tough one to get a handle on this season. They have a fairly decent squad on paper and will be looking to prove that it was a once-off their poor performance last year. It'll be interesting to see where they end up. I think safe with plenty to spare but probably not troubling the European spots

Wouldn't know where to start with predicting the whole league but will predict winners, my own team and relegation.

1st. Dundalk (comfortably)
5th. Bohs (possibly sixth)
9th. Limerick (by a hair)
10th. Bray

Pats to win the cup and Dundalk or 'that shower' to win the league cup.

To be honest I thought Bohs were a cert to go last season, they massively over achieved imo and I don't see them doing it again. 10th may not happen but could throw a dart at them between 8th and 10th in my head and I dislike bohs the most out of the 3 😂

We are in better shape than this time last year. Which wouldn't be hard in fairness. Have to credit Lyttle he has done a huge amount of work. We have a small squad but think we could surprise a few this season if we can keep injury free. Could do with some cover at the back and a player to hold the up the ball. Europe a push too far so probably middle of the pack.

The squad is in a lot better shape than last season i think, and lads we weren't sure would deliver became key men. Would have taken 9th at the start of last season looking at the squad ahead of the first game, and especially after Derry beat us handily in that game. We need a striker as a matter of urgency in case Dinny misses a decent spell again this year but if that problem can be negotiated then we could do very well, good players and decent cover in most positions. The players we've lost aren't huge misses, Sule is very good but Bucko is an able replacement, O'Hora and Akinade only played a handful of games last year. The rest have stayed on and with players like Bucko, Moore, Devaney, Leahy, Watts and Lunney added to the squad it looks strong at the moment. I dont want to jinx it but im not worried about relegation at present anyway.
