Bristol City had a reletivly good return to the Championship last season, picking up where they left off from the previous title winning season. They stumbled a bit in the 2nd half of the season with injuries, and ended up in 18th, which wasn’t bad at all considering they were one of the favourites to go down. They may struggle this season though, while they may have the talent in their squad, it won’t be long before other teams start taking them away, with the likes of Flint, Agard, Kodija and Marlon Pack subject to much interest already. Unless they can hold on to their best players, or at least find adequate replacements, they could find themselves languishing near the bottom of the table.

Last Season’s Finish; 18th
