Manager: Derek McInnes
Position last season: 20th
Nickname: The Robins
Ground: Ashton Gate
Players in: Jody Morris (St Johnstone, free), Paul Anderson (Nottingham Forest, free)
Players out: Jamal Campbell-Ryce (Notts County, free), Jamie McAllister (Yeovil, free), David James, David Clarkson, Christian Ribeiro, Marlon Jackson, Danny Ball and Henry Muggeridge (all released)
Key man: Winger Albert Adomah (pictured) had another excellent season in 2011-12 after winning the club's player of the year award a year earlier. Strikers Jon Stead and Brett Pitman will rely on him to create chances.
Chances: McInnes is regarded as one of the most highly-rated managers in Britain and enjoyed instant success at Ashton Gate as he steered the Robins clear of relegation last season. Will be hoping for a higher finish in his first full campaign in charge.
