Watched the Debate on Sky last night - Paul Merson tipped us to finish 2nd but Clinton Morrison predicted Fulham 2nd and Forest to win the play-offs (his son is in Forests' academy so I suspect that may have played a part in his decision...)Darren Bent in the Times today:
Position 5th Points 53 GD 27 Form WWDLWW
Their attacking trio really excite me and they are why Brentford will sneak promotion via the play-offs to crown their proposed move to their new stadium next season. Ollie Watkins is joint-top scorer (with Mitrovic) in the league and he complements Saïd Benrahma and Bryan Mbeumo. Watkins is technically good and physically strong but what has impressed me is that he naturally takes up positions to score — the mark of a good forward. He was impressive last season when he caught the eye of Crystal Palace. Mbeumo, the 20-year-old Frenchman, has adapted remarkably quickly, with 12 goals and five assists.
Average position of remaining opponents 13th
Prediction 4th — play-off winners"
He has West Brom to win and Fulham 2nd (but also Bristol City 6th!)
