How has pre-season gone for you?

Ok, havent lost a game. Won the Algarve Cup beating Celtic and V Guimares who are in the Champions League this year

Are you pleased with the signings your club has made?

Yes. Still need some more quality though if we are to challenge.

What realistically are you aiming for this season?


Which player has past his sell by date?

Darren Purse

Have you got the right manager in charge?

Yes. No one better even though he is quite a hard man to like.

What advice would you give him?

Stop moaning about everything

Who do you see as your key player?

McCormack. Pretty much the same team as last season, If he can score 20+ goals could be the difference between promotion or not.

Where will you finish?


How do you rate Barnsley's chances next season and where do you think they will finish?

Surprise package. Everyone seems to be writing them off. Think Mid table at least
