Nobody has mentioned the other major factor. Lady Luck. Say what you like but she needs to be on your side.

Just come across this article which was a fairly interesting read, writer has his predicted finish for us as 7th.

What do we think, about right? Or slightly generous.

Gustard certainly did well as defence coach at Sarries. However, Englandís defence last season (for which he was responsible) wasnít anything to write home about; leaked like a sieve.....hope heís put that behind him

At the risk of getting over excited the contrast between the JK regime/culture and PG appears to be huge and I expect to see a very different attitude from the players on the pitch.The Sale game is a perfect test as being at home to a mid table side is exactly the kind of game we must win.I am looking forward with great enthusiasm for the first time in years.Finish 6th for Gussieís 1st season will
do me.

Agreed. Although it's only the first game of the season, in the overall scheme of things it's a must-win in terms of points and morale.

But where does the article rank in the Blucherquin negativity scale - or is that honour reserved purely for my posts?

I'm not too worried by the England issues with Gustard. He only got the players for a couple of weeks at a time and they all played slightly different versions of defence, which he then had to unify. Here he has the players week in week out teaching them his approach to defence. Even the prop forwards will learn it eventually! :)

Gustard brings fans a realistic optimism that has been sadly absent at the start of recent seasons.

To repeat my first post on this thread - only time will tell which Quins turns up in 2018/19 but given the fixture list the Sale game and those up to the end of October will give a good indication (imho).

I'm pretty sure I said I'm happy as long as we don't get relegated and don't look like the collection of over-the-hill england players and bench-filling squad dross who hate each other and can't tackle that we've looked like for the past two years (or something like that).

So yeah, 7th is fine.
