Crewe's Season 2003-04 Preview!

Last updated : 04 July 2003 By Rob Cooper
Dario Gradi guided the Railwaymen back into Division One at the first attempt last season.

Ready for another campaign in the Division, we asked our Crewe Alexandre supporting 'mates' how they think they will do next season, who they think is going up, who they think is going down and how they reckon the Royals will fare.

With the furore surrounding the future of Rob Hulse dominating the media in Crewe unsurprisingly their supporters cannt wait for the season to start.

Who do you think will go up?
West Brom, Ipswich and Norwich.

Who do you think will get relegated?
Stoke, Walsall and Bradford.

How do you think your team will fare this coming season?
Anywhere between 10th and 21st. Probably 15th or 16th.

How well do you think Reading will perform next season?
I'm not sure, it has been a very long time since we last played you! You seemed to have a decent season last year (understatement?) but I think you might drop away a bit and maybe finish about tenth.

Which team do you think will prove to be a 'surprise package'?
Wigan. Not many have said much about them but I think they have what it takes to go quite far, maybe even get promoted. With a rich chairman and a manager who knows how to use money in place they've got a chance.

With thanks to Alexander,
