Name: Cathryn Bell

Club: Doncaster Rovers

Level of Interest: ( I.e Now and then, Every other week, season ticket holder etc)?

Season ticket holder, hardly ever miss a game, home or away

How has pre-season gone for you?

Only played two games up to now, won both, but hardly been tough tests, Suppose it's about getting back into it for now.

Are you pleased with the signings your club has made?

We haven't made any..... Looking to strengthen in midfield after the departure of Richie Wellens

What realistically are you aiming for this season?

For me I would be happy just to stay up, rumour has it we want to be pushing for a play-off place, this is way too optimistic for me though, especially with the lack of signings.

Which player has past his sell by date?

Don't know really, there's a few players who aren't good enough for us... Lewis Guy..

Have you got the right manager in charge?

Definitely, S'OD is a football legend, and I really can see him being snapped up by a premiership club sometime in the near future

What advice would you give him?

Just carry on doing the magic that you do :-)

Who do you see as your key player?

I'd say Matt Mills, or Brian Stock, both massive players for us. Also O'Connor is very influential for us.

Who would you most like to beat this season?

For me it would be Middlesbrough, my other half is a season ticket holder there and a massive fan, so to have the bragging rights would be great. Then there the derbies of course

Where will you finish? Mid table-ish....

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

With Davey in charge.... not very high, can't see him lasting too long though. I would like to see them do terrible, but probably just above relegation...
