I don't know if mcCarthy or more importantly Evans will see it this way , but it looks to me as though next season could be our best opportunity for promotion. If Cardiff and Sunderland come down , I confidently predict neither will be in the running for a top 6 place. This leaves the 3 play off teams from this year , plus the third relegated team , either Fulham or Norwich. Of course teams like Brighton and Bournmouth will still be hard to beat. But surely next season holds our best opportunity in a while.
