Out of interest, what are your minimum expectations you have for Paul Warne and the squad this season.

Note the word minimum, anything less would be unacceptable.

In an ideal world this topic would be created after the transfer window has closed, however if we're all honest, most will already have their minimum expectations for this club including the owner.

Again, minimum. If you are saying automatic promotion, that would mean the play offs would be seen as a failure.

4th place and whatever happens in the playoffs happens.

...but that's only really if there are some major unexpected hurdles that present themselves to us between now and then. 

Otherwise, 3rd place and winning the playoffs.

Good reasons for a failure to get promoted will be accepted, excuses will not.

Warne has now got a transfer budget and therefore the ability to bring in his own players. He is supposed to be a League One promotion specialist so I expect promotion; there is no reason now we are competing on a level playing field that we shouldn’t achieve it. For me anything else in such a weak league would be failure.

We've seen the standards of this league and some of the better adapted teams have gone. How bad will we have to be to not get auto promotion?

It was more the comment about last season that got me.

Bloody Nora. Good luck Paul 😂

I'm with Roy on this one.

Warne himself said anything less than play offs would be a failure, and so it transpired. 

This season, with a full pre season to shape the squad as he wants, and some restrictions eased, the ambition surely has to be lifted to automatic promotion?

Of course there are no guarantees but I think if you asked Warne privately he would be very disappointed with anything less than promotion. We are 9/4 favourites. I think anything less than top two would be disappointing but if we finish sixth, 12 points behind Wycombe and then beat them with a 96th minute penalty at Wembley I’ll be happy.

Ask Warne what he thought?

True. Just think as a fan, might have felt differently having gone through the summer, I for one never expected play offs, thought we would do well to be mid table.

Weird summer, wasn't it? 

No club looked at one stage the likeliest outcome, then we're saved, DC does his walking interview, and the next thing is a steady stream of incoming high quality, but older than usual players, and hope was restored.

I still thought mid table would be a perfectly acceptable result, and even when Warne took over unexpectedly, I saw no reason to change opinion.

As the season progressed though, it became clearer, to me at least, just how incredibly poor the opposition at League One level truly is, shocking below the top 6, and we couldn't even finish in that.

Now Warne gets to build his side, not make do with someone else's recruitment, and the difference in recruitment is stark. 

I've no idea if any of these incomings are decent players or not, but that's OK by me.

Warne has employed them, I trust he knows what's needed, and I'm pretty confident he'll be successful come the end of the season. 

Which will be a top 2 finish.

I think of he doesn’t get promotion this season then Warne should face difficult discussions with Clowes about keeping his job. For me only way he keeps his job if we don’t get promoted is if we have a really strong season just miss out on autos and then lose in the playoffs, although losing in the playoffs would be a failure. We’re signing 10+ players in the summer, we are now undisputedly the biggest club in the league, we’re the favourites to win the league, last season was the joint worst league finish in our entire history and we’ve never been in this league for longer than 2 seasons. Promotion has to be the expectation.
