Get your predictions in here. See you in ten years :)

We will have been back to the big time. And relegated. Currently in championship having missed out on play offs last season.

Evatt is managing West Ham.

Scotts is still closed for refurb and we have safe standing in ESL.

Stuck in the Championship, having hung around in League One until 2026, crowds are down all over the country, as people have fallen out of love with the game again, and we're playing in front of just 9000 people per week. There is talk of a merger with Wigan.

Our Manager is Keiran Lee, appointed because "he knows the club" and is seen as a safe pair of hands, having guided Oldham back into the league

The PL now consists of only 16 clubs, and is now much more competitive, with City, Liverpool, UTD, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs & Newcastle having left to form a  European Super League, that consists of 2 divisions of 12 clubs each. Each team plays each other 3 times (1 home, 1 away & 1 "neutral" venue....in Asia or the US) - the winner of each division has an end of season play off to see who the ultimate champion of Europe is.

 The roof over NSLZ224 still drips when it’s pissing down despite Saint Sharon’s best efforts . Bassini still after buying the club citing shit roof to blame for his latest bankruptcy. 
He’s still wearing loafers with no socks.

When Leeds got promoted they were mentioning they'd been out of the top division for 17 years. Just seen this season Forest have been out for 23 years.

The sad twat that I am went and worked out the longest we'd ever been out of the top division. I think I remember it being 15 years, so in 10 years time we'll probably have been up there and be on the way back down again.

Bobbing between the prem and champ like we did mid 90’s

novelty of the prem wears off after the first couple of seasons. It’s shite really. Rather us be a decent team in the league below than an irrelevance in the Prem

I predict we will have a massive building called the arc near the ground complete with a spoons, strip club, burger king and a muslim prayer centre.

Why would we need another Burger King at the ground?

Fookin hell @Sweep that's a somewhat depressing vision but I suppose Championship is alright and I'd agree with you that, that's where we'll be.

Prediction 1 - The Rollercoaster

2023-2026: Promoted to Champ, overachieve and finish 7th, sell key players and raise ~£30m. Reinvest smartly make playoffs but knocked out in final to relegated PL team, dodgy VAR decision sends fans into meltdown.

2026 - 2029: we go up automatically, again making a healthy profit in the transfer market. Finish 15th in the Premier League, Evatt gets poached by a big 6 team who are in disarray. we hire a Pep Lijnders who does a decent job and keeps us up... just. Evatt is sacked by the big 6 club after 7 months. He goes to Rangers.

2029 - 2032: Sharon sells the club to an American consortium with grand plans. They sack the manager 3 months in while in 16th place and hire Steve Cooper who doesn't quite work out and we're stuck in the bottom 3 most of the season. However make a great escape in the final 5 games. Cooper OUT chants are replaced by a pitch invasion and wild celebrations. Celebrations don't last too long as Cooper is sacked after 9 games. He is replaced by Nuno Espirito Santo. We spend heavily on garbage players in the summer and winter windows and find ourselves struggling again. Back in the Championship, the squad is gutted of most of its talent and we finish 9th in the Championship. We hire a young English manager who gets us into the playoffs but we are knocked out in the semi finals.

 

Prediction 2 - The Optimistic Realistic

2023 - 2026: we get into the Championship and finish in midtable - playoffs. Evatt gets poached by a relegated Prem team in 2026, with Bolton sitting in 3rd.

2026 - 2029: still in the Championship after losing the playoff final. Sharon still around, making smart transfer decisions with Markham and hiring another long term young manager.

2029 - 2032: we do get promoted into the Prem, but come straight back down in 2032. Fans are confident of going straight back up the following season. We become a bit like what Norwich and Fulham are now.

The following season the format is altered so that the top 6 placed teams in each league enter into a new ultimate European champions trophy where they all play each other three times and then the top four placed teams are in a play off with the two finalists playing for the title of ultimate European champions.

Having lost to a controversial added time goal in the 61st minute by Tricia Fannywobbler one of Aberystwyth's mandatory 4 female player, Bolton manager Zack Clough said "It was a direct kick from a kick in. That's no longer allowed. The Ref-Bot should be programmed to know a Trans player cannot score from that position while we're still taking the knee after one of our black players had been fouled".

The crowd, an impressive 1,287, were quick to show their dismay singing "Blimey, what the heck is that ?".

The Greenhalgh's Craft Bakery Arena emptied quickly and the fans found the electric charge points for their driverless cars, had malfunctioned.

"Thank God I'm dead" thought the ashes of Dr. Feelgood, from their place on one of the 3 centre circles.

Hoping we draw somewhere in Albania in the first round of the European For Those Who Finished in 15th Trophy.

Wanderersways very own Jules Darby will own the club.

Beer will still taste like piss.

The 3D advertising boards will give me migraines. And some dumb cunt will trip over a speeding car on the side of the pitch before realising it wasn't really even there.

And we'll all still be laughing at how many years its been since United won the league.

That sentient Google AI thing will be managing the Isle Of Man team who will be in the Championship thanks to its prowess and unlimited funds from China, who sensibly kept well out of WWIII.

Ted Undies will be posting "name the ground" questions based on 6 pixels and a quote from Alvin Stardust's debut album.

 Bolton will have proudly wrestled the title "highest ground in the country" from WBA thanks to the new "Rivington Pikes Lane" built up Winter Hill, with the slope playing to our advantage.

The 2034 World Cup will awarded to Moon Base 1, thanks to an underhand bid from NASA.

The COVID 21 pandemic means that the Champions League will be played behind closed doors in the Antarctic. Captainmed attends with snow shoes, crampons and a ladder.
