premier league predictions for next season?


Recommended Posts

Looks like Vipond is back in the hot seat, General Manager. Whats all that about ? Oh yes, when they win he the takes credit, when they lose Tommy Garrett (manager) gets the blame.

Club deserves better.

 

Is that what you reckon? ... Who is Tommy G? Sounds familiar?

 

So whens the curtain call with you on here OD? Going to miss you, to many big characters we're losing now such as yourself , SavageB, Rhodes and old whats his name from Cranfield? Nutty fella.... Yeah him.

 

Wonder if this Leighton mob bring anyone to the forum table? Greatest coup of the 15/16 forum, Gaffa Bicks back!

Always love the way clubs who are afraid of getting tonked put down it is an XI they are putting out. What is that all about? Can understand a Luton Town XI or Stevenage FC XI coming down for a friend

Nah it'll come down to whoever pays the most money, as it did last season and every season for the last 5 years or so. If Welwyn don't win it with that budget, it's a crime.

Food fight!!!

I'm sure we can look forward to many healthy discussions from Stingray of Leighton Town, have always found his posts in the other forum most enlightening, and of course Mr Bicks will once again raise the levels to that of which yourself and RH inspire to

Cheers RB, will always keep an eye on whats going on as I will miss it. Some great banter.

Might throw in an opinion every now and then if allowed.

Why do I always get tarred with the same brush as RB?   :454:

With Gavin leaving and no doubt players will follow, my prediction of Hoddesdon being relegated well it might just happen....

Hoddesdon could be in a precarious position if they don't get the appointment right. Finished 4th from bottom with only 36 points in 2014-15.

Hertford - finally promoted

2nd between WGC, LC, Berko.

Relegated - hard to tell so far, merry go round has just begun....but id say Colney Heath from what ive seen this season, perhaps Stotfold as well

Reckon you`ve got the top 4 right, Dont know about Stotfold going down but there needs to be a big improvement at Colney Heath from last time to keep them up.

Colney just looked a tad out of their depth at times when i saw them....but this is football and at this level, it could be completely different next season ala Hoddy.

Leverstock maybe another that may go down. Just cant tell, think its harder to predict relegation than the Top 6 say.

Think you right with Levy Green. Lost their last 5 games with a couple of heavy defeats and won only 1 of their last 12 games. Need to improve or bye bye.

With players following managers around it is almost impossible to predict and at this level and a decent striker can keep a side mid table so it doesn't take a lot to transform a side. Stotfold will be fine if they can keep Ben L'honore. All sounds positive for Hertford but I think Biggleswade United could be a team to watch, complete transformation down there following the introduction of their Director of Football. Their form was pretty impressive second half of the season with a long unbeaten run!

I predict both Edgware and Biggleswade to be in the mix. 

I also wouldn't be surprised if Crawley Green did OK - they will pick up any players that AFC Dunstable let go i would imagine.

You have to think that Hadley, with a bit of luck in terms of fixtures (although i believe that they will be returning home) may be in with a chance. Comfortably the best football team that we played last year.

As for relegation. With a glut of teams in the A10 area, and expectation that Hertford and Hoddesdon will largely swap over, you would have to say that St Mags couldn't really improve on where they were last year so may be in a bit of bother. I think Levy will be OK - Sun Sports may be one for the drop, depends what is happening management wise there.

I think St Mags will improve next year.  Was a tough season with losing most of their First and Reserve team in one go.  JB with a year under his belt will have learnt from the experience.  Saw them play Hoddy and only really lacked a more experienced striker from what I saw... oh and not switching off when ref doesn't blow his whistle

Few fine points made...L'Honore is a very good player, temperament a tad up and down but a very good player none the less...would be an excellent addition to the wgc side.

Good shout on Biggleswade, saw them first or second game of the season and we destroyed them....not sure on the stats but second half of the season form was surely Top 6, if not Top 4.

St Mags have a very decent CM, not sure on his name, strong, stocky, black guy....perfect for wgc i believe, adding a bit of bit and steal to the equation after the retirement of Daryl Smith.

But yes they had a torrid season, saw them early on and they didnt look much, just lacked a bit of organisation/experience....which im guessing was added towards the back end of the season

Between end of Nov and mid March (all comps) they played 18, won 11, drew 6 and lost 1. That isn't a bad run! The start of the season it was out with old, in with the new I think.

Spot on, thats very impressive stats...i didnt recognise the majority when they came to our gaff mid-season/tail end of season...compared to the start. So that summary fits well.

Plus isnt the Head Coach/Director ex Madrid or something like that?!

I think Hertford will take the title. With the mix of the hoddeson players that will follow Gavin and the players that Hertford had this season they will be a strong side. If WGC can add a few more with the side they have now they will also be pushing the top 3. 

 

So I reckon the top will be:

Hertford 

Biggleswade

London Colney/WGC

 

Bottom will be out of:

Colney Heath

London Tigers

Sun Sports

Oxhey

It's impossible to tell at this level. So much post/pre season shuffling.

Anyone who can keep most of their squad together will be at a distinct advantage.

 

That being said, the change at Hertford looks positive.

I think Edgware could be a bit of a surprise package.

If London Colney can add a bit of depth to their very good XI, they'll certainly be up there again.

And where Biggleswade ended up, from being bottom after the first few months, shows that they're well and truly heading in the right direction.

 

But going back to my first two sentences, any one of those teams could lose their entire squad before we see another ball kicked.

And we could end up with a Leicester...

WGC

 

Bottom 3

At the beginning of every season I think the 'sleeping giant' Hertford can go on and win, maybe this year will finally be the year. Everything is in place there. Hope Oxhey and Colney Heath aren't in the mix down the bottom, both great SSML clubs.

As for the promoted teams, don't think Edgware will be up to much, aren't they mostly the old cockfosters side from a couple of years ago? Don't remember Cockfosters pulling up any trees back then. Crawley could be more of a surprise package if you ask me, I know nothing about them and neither will many other teams.

 

Welwyn will challenge with their budget, Biggleswade and Berko (if they don't run out of steam) too.

I see the Colney Heath Manager Micky Nathan has added former Bedford and Harpenden Town FC Coach Pete Waller as his Assistant for the coming season. Will do well there with the infrastructure they have in place, hope they do well next season.
