Time one is started? (Do we have enough League 1 fans on here to keep it running?)

With Portsmouth starting on -10 and currently only having 8 first team players, it surely means one of the relegation spots is filled.

I'm a Stevenage fan and I'd take any place above the bottom 4 right now. With the manager leaving in Feb, nearly all of the squad has now left too. We have a couple star players remaining and it does look like we've added some quality - but I think there has just been too much change to be successful this season - the club does however have a habit of destroying my doubts.

Crawley Town fan here. Looking forward to see how well we do in the dizzy heights of League 1. I am under no illusion that we are possibly going to make it 3 back to back promotions but hope we are not scrapping at or near the bottom all season.

a number of new signings should add strength to the team but still at a loss why Evans got rid of Tubbs and Barnett towards the end of last season. Let's hope O'Driscoll has more of a clue.

Now that Evans has left you guys (I really can't stand that man), I'm actually hoping you do well.

I'm looking forward to my trip down to your place, decent pub nearby IIRC and terracing which I've missed since during rise through the leagues - I think Brentford was the only game last season with terracing.

My local club is Doncaster Rovers (not actually a fan, but a few friends are) I sometimes go to a few games. I have to say the people I have spoken to are not looking forward to this season, the squad is very low on numbers and they need to shed some players to get the budget down so they can bring more in. I know a few that think it's going to be a relegation scrap.

Sheff Utd fan.

Totally expecting the usual form of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory once more.

I would imagine very poor odds at the bookies for the Blades not making the top 6, or even the top 2. I'll go for play offs before then slipping up.

It is a shame what Pompeys fans have been through - thankfully we've got a very level headed chairman and only spend what we have. That said, I am looking forward to a trip to Pompey. Second last away game of the season so hopefully a weekender on the cards.

The bookies, from what I've seen, seem to think Swindon will walk it this year.

Can Coventry return instantly? I don't know if they have retained any of their squad?

I predict a top 2 of Shef U and MK Dons and with Preston being the dark horses now Graham Westley has had a pre season with them.

I really hope that Swindon do not run away with it, not that I have anything against them but one of the guys I work with is an avid Swindon fan. He took much joy seeing Crawley succumb their lead last season and even more joy taking 6 points of us. It was very painful having to buy him a beer at the Broadfield after an embarrassing 3-0 defeat.

If SOD does anything for you like he did for Forest this year, you'll be laughing. He turned us round in a few weeks!

He didn't make himself very evident at my club (Plymouth Argyle) so I wouldn't hold your breath. He's not got the best of records.

But then, I don't really have a right to comment do I?

Actually, this thread might have a bit more legs to it if you included L2. I just know there's not enough L2 followers on PH!

I don't see why not. After all there will be some of us who will be more interested in that league come May next year!

Bury FC fan here. Would just be happy to stay up again this season.

Last season was a bit of a roller coaster we were either in great form and looking towards the play off's, or on a dire run plumeting towards relegation. We never seemed to be 'middleing'

Our manager has already trotted out the 'harder league than last season line' so hope he's not just getting his excuses ready. And we do have a tough opening few games, looking forward to Doncaster away and hopefully Coventry away as they will be new grounds for me.

Up the Shakers!!!!

It looks like we're going to sign Nicky Ajose. I remember him being useful for you guys. Something to be excited about?

Good idea, lots of teams seem to spend their time switching between the two, given the 4 up/down, anyway.

No idea how I change the thread title though? Is it a mod thing? If so, can a mod change it to 'The League 1 and 2 Thread' please?
