Well it's nearly time, transfers completed, new shirts purchased and we're ready for the 24 teams in the Championship to start the nine months of tribulation. Frustration is about to set in for some and happiness for the others.
It will be interesting how many of the managers and Head Coaches remain in their jobs come May, especially our own club!
Here are my tips for 2016/17, including who will win and who could surprise a few.
Over thirty million quid spent and still rising, Rafa in charge and guaranteed fifty thousand most home games and sold out when travelling away. I expect them to be Promoted as Champions by April.
Additions like Dwight Gayle, Mo Diame, Grant Hanley and Matt Ritchie will all bring quality and Championship experience to a squad that already included some fantastic players.
The 'seesaw' club will bounce back at the first attempt, ex-Leeds midfielder Jonny Howson is someone who I expect to excel and Sergi Canos will frighten a few defences to death as will Steven Naismith.
Alex Neil has already proved he can lead the club to promotion and having not lost many of his key players, they'll be a force to be reckoned with this season.
The Seagulls will continue their impressive performance of 2015/16 in which played really well until falling at the last hurdle at home to Sheffield Wednesday. Managed by one of the best managers at this level Chris Hughton and with key players like Knockaert, this will be a season that they will try to keep their nerve.
Money is no object to the South Yorkshire side and with the fantastic squad they already posses and the likely additions you'd be stupid not to put them in the top six. Good manager too.
With Will Hughes and Craig Bryson fit again it will be like having two new signings and strikers Chris Martin, Jonny Russell and Darren Bent should be amongst the goals.
New manager Nigel Pearson has been there and done it with Leicester City, his experience will be very important in the run-in.
It seems every year 'the tractor boys' flirt with the playoffs but generally fall short getting further. This time Mick McCarthy will hope they can go one step further and grab a top six place and progress. Daryl Murphy will be again a thorn in most defences sides
After so long outside the Premiership and with a maverick owner, maybe just maybe they have found the right coach and players to boost this once mighty and still fantastically supported team and challenge the teams above.
Still a little short in defence and if this is amended Leeds could just be a force that no-one is expecting. Roofe looks a great signing and will surely terrorise a few full backs as the season goes on.
New owners willing to throw money at their team. It has to be seen if new manager Walter Zenga can push Wolves nearer the top than the bottom. Worth putting a few quid on.
Rising home-grown talents Jordan Graham, Kourtney Hause and Dominic Iorfa will be major players this season for the club.
Look the best bet to go but had a encouraging run under Warnock that saved them last season
Looks like a return to Division One for City, Agard and Lee Tomlin may though get enough goals to save them. Still a tough ask to stay up.
Preston North End
If Beckford gets the goals he may save ex-Leeds manager Simon Grayson from the drop but it will be a difficult season for the Lancashire team
There you go, I might be right or wrong but let's hope it's a season to savour, especially if it's a good one for my team Leeds United.
