At the start of the season Ian Holloway was working for Sky Sports.
Come the end of it he was guiding Queens Park Rangers out of trouble at the foot of the Championship table.
When he was working with the TV giants, Holloway was asked to predict the outcome of the 2016-17 Championship.
So, how did he do? Now the season has ended, we can take a look. And it transpires that he did well with the very top and the very bottom, but went a little off piste in the middle - to be expected really.
No one can really predict anything in football, just look at Leicester City's title triumph last season, but Holloway gave it a good go.
In fact, he predicted the top two perfectly, his football nous coming to the fore to say that Newcastle United, under Rafa Benitez, would win the title, with Brighton & Hove Albion following them to the Premier League.
Holloway also correctly predicted that Rotherham United would be bottom of the pile.
However, it is in the play-offs where Holloway struggled to get his crystal ball working properly. Sheffield Wednesday, in the play-offs last season, of course, were the only one of the four that Holloway predicted would make the top six.
The QPR boss also went for Norwich - who finished eighth - Derby County - who finished ninth - and Leeds - who finished seventh, just outside the play-offs.
Not a terrible prediction then, but it is who actually finished in the top six and where Holloway had them to place that the real disparity between his prediction and the final table come in.
Reading finished third, with Holloway expecting them to finish 15th. In fairness to Ollie, though, he did say: "It's hard to predict how Jaap Stam will cope with the Championship. They could be a dark horse or they could struggle, hence why I've put them in mid-table."
Fulham took sixth place, when Holloway had predicted a 17th place finish, while Huddersfield took fifth, with Holloway believing David Wagner's side would be relegated.
Holloway said: "Fulham's problem is that they've got a lot of overpaid experience and too many youth players. They could have another tough season, especially without the goals of Moussa Dembele and potentially Ross McCormack.
"I haven't seen much progression from the club during the back end of last season. David Wagner is pretty inexperienced and if results turn, then they may struggle to turn things around.
Holloway also fancied west London rivals Brentford to get relegated - they ended up tenth.
