yeah still sounds wrong that the only cup we stand any chance of winning is the JPT and that is debatable with huddersfield - the blunts - preston and a whole bunch of other teams that will fancy themselves

In truth I think we've got a hard start. Rochdale a side who had a very good season last year although Keith Hill has gone they still are one of them small clubs that does well. Bournemouth who were in the play offs. Bury who have come up (teams don't really tend to be up against relegation who come up automatically from league 2. Then Notts C who clearly have ambition next season with them trying to sign Harewood. So the first month will shape us I'm sure.
