Who'll win the 2015/16 Skybet League One?
by bobslay13 on 27 Jul at 20:48
Who’ll win the 2015/16 Skybet League One? 2 weeks to go until the first round of league fixtures in the 2015/16 season get underway; a good time to start trying to predict who’s going to win the divisions of the Football League. Many teams are still pretty under-staffed but most are starting to take shape and have the spine of their side sorted so I think we can make pretty logical predictions now. I’ll be looking at League Two in the next week or so but this episode I’m focusing on League One. League One So, who are the main competitors? I’m not going to look at every side in the league. Nor am I looking at who might clinch promotion because that means a chunky review of at least half the division; rather I’m going to look at a handful of teams..

Newcastle And West Ham - Be Careful What You Wish For
by garethp1981 on 27 Jul at 19:10
In the last part of my football blog reviewing the 2014-15 season I wrote about three teams who had bad starts to the season and then managed to turn things around. In this blog I will be writing about teams who did the opposite, a reasonably good start followed by a poor second half of the season. One example of this is Newcastle United who managed to stay in the Premier League in the end with 39 points; but this total does not tell the full story of the season. Alan Pardew left the club officially on the 2nd of January, so the team had played 20 of their 38 games. He left them on 27 points which most people would agree is not fantastic but is far from relegation form (Hull and QPR both had 19 points at this..

Premiership Transfer Window Losers
by botev1921 on 27 Jul at 16:33
After talking about the Premiership Transfer Window winners I decided to come back to the losers category I was considering and quickly go over the teams and players I consider to have done worse than expected or to have done certain moves that simply lack coherence and logic. While obviously for a certain transfer to be considered a failure one would need to monitor how things go for at least a couple of months, there were still those occasional pieces of business that just made very little sense in the context of what the teams/players needed to go one step further in their development. Feel free to add comments even if you disagree completely with some of my observations and we will be able to compare points of view come May 2016 and see who got it right or wrong...

Pre-season 2015/16 - The Liverpool Perspective; two weeks to go
by ibfm23 on 26 Jul at 12:00
Once again the Reds were amongst the most active clubs during the summer transfer window. Last year, we all had the ill feeling that the failure to replace Suarez would have a detrimental effect, and it did indeed. This time around though, Rodgers has done a better job at slotting in signings where required. Last time out, Liverpool conceded 48 goals in 38 matches, 10 or more goals short of the top four’s defensive record. This notwithstanding, the Reds kept 14 clean sheets, better than Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United. Yet, when things went wrong they went horribly wrong and Liverpool conceded more than 2 goals on 7 occasions which all ended in defeats. In comparison, the top four jointly conceded more than 2 goals 7 times! When things got hard, the Reds were unable to keep it together and this..
