The npower League One season kicks-off on Saturday and we at Vital have predicted how we think the table will turn out.
Of course, we've got rose-tinted specs as far as Wednesday are concerned - it wouldn't be the same without - but we're confident we'll come pretty close to correctly predicting how the league table will end up.
No doubt some of you will have your own opinions on what the final standings will be, so why not have your say on the Vital Wednesday forums?
Ever the optimists here at Vital Wednesday, we've gone for Wednesday achieving promotion back to the Championship via the seconds automatic promotion spot.
Again, rose-tinted specs, but that's how we roll...
Southampton are the favourites for the title, and there' no reason for us to disagree with that favourites tag.
The Saints have a top manager in Alan Pardew, have a squad high on confidence following their superb finish to last season, and have players that know what League One is like thanks to last term.
We're going for Southampton as champions, and Wednesday as runners-up for the two automatic promotion spots.
Then there's the 'chasing pack', so to speak, with teams that should be in and around the play-offs come the end of the season.
Teams like Charlton Athletic, Peterborough United, Plymouth Argyle, Huddersfield Town, Bristol Rovers and Colchester United.
Lee Clark has done a fantastic job with the Terriers and strengthened extremely well this summer, so we're going to put them in third, pushing Wednesday and Saints all the way.
It's also quite difficult to look further than Charlton Athletic in fourth. Another side who've bolstered well since last season and will not want to miss out on promotion this time.
For the final two play-off places we're going to go for Peterborough United and Bristol Rovers.
Posh have a top manager for League One level in Gary Johnson and have managed to keep the vast majority of their squad for the new campaign - a squad very much suited to League One, with all due respect.
Bristol Rovers may be a bit of a surprise package in there to some, but the Pirates will be there or thereabouts next season and we've plumped for them in sixth.
Notts County will no doubt be up there next season, too, as will Plymouth Argyle, who were relegated with the Owls last season, but we think they may be the one relegated side to miss out on the top-six.
We're sure there will be plenty of shocks and surprises along the way, there always is, and the league will no doubt go down to the wire as it did last season.
Our final prediction table:
3. Huddersfield Town
4. Charlton Athletic
5. Peterborough United
6. Bristol Rovers
7. Notts County
8. Plymouth Argyle
9. Swindon Town
10. Colchester United
13. MK Dons
14. Carlisle United
15. Leyton Orient
17. Tranmere Rovers
19. Oldham Athletic
21. Hartlepool United
24. Dagenham & Redbridge
