Actually they are not to bad really. Got us completely but depending on how the season ends May have predicted 5 of the top 6 and 3 of the bottom 4.

Yes, but it did not take a football genius to predict that Wolves, Derby, Villa and Fulham would challenge and that Burton, Bolton and Barnsley would struggle. They showed no appreciation of what was actually happening with the more volatile teams like us, Bristol, Reading and Birmingham where they appear to have taken a pretty superficial view and just followed the popular expectation. Little insight really.

The ones who have surprised me (and the BBC) most are, for differing reasons, Milwall, Boro, Sunderland and Wednesday.

7-17 totally wrong excluding forest. Such an unpredictable league. I don’t think anyone could get it right tbh
