Season 4 – We Go Again

 

Welcome back as the boys return from holiday and we look to go again and have a better season compared to last season after we managed to survive in the Championship quite comfortably in the end. In this update it will be a quick run through of the pre season results and the players we have brought as we look to hit the ground running in the opening game against Hull.

 

A quick side note on Tranmere. I kept an eye on them after we had left them to see if they could get promoted or if they would drop off and bottle the league but they did manage to win the league so that’s three promotions in as many years and we will play them next season.

We have brought in a number of players which was needed as the team last season wasn’t as good as I would of liked along with a few players being sold and the new additions have improved every position on the pitch. We may still lack depth in a couple of positions but I am very happy with the squad we have and feel we can have a good season and be much more competitive. Bringing in players like Hendrick, Baines and Abraham who I rate on frees can only be good business.

 

 

Pre Season

We managed to go undefeated in our pre season which is an added bonus as we looked to get the players back to match fit and ready for the long season ahead. We have played some good football in pre season and the ten nil smashing of Evian looks promising despite them having dropped down the leagues in France. We also had positive performances against better sides like Olympiakos and Anderlecht as well as dominating a mixed Arsenal side of first team players and reserves. We have renewed the loan for Ponce and he looks a much better player already than he did last season.

We are one of the strong favourites to be in the play offs as the odds keep changing as we go from anywhere between 5th and 7th in the season odds for winning the league. There are a lot of winnable games this year as there seems to be more smaller teams in the league which should help us do well should we not mess up against the smaller sides. I can guarantee now that we will get battered by Tranmere as that is always the case if you leave a club. We do have a fairly hard start with us playing Hull, Sunderland and QPR in our first 6 games. A cup game away at Oldham should see us progress but I am not taking that as a certain win.

 

 

So there we have it, a look at our new signings along with the results of pre season. We have a much stronger side than last season. We are still in talks with a couple of players to boost the depth of some positions after we missed out on a couple of our main targets which we may go in for again should they become available again. We will continue to play our 4312 formation as we have worked on it over the summer and the boys are more comfortable with it which helped with the performances in pre season. hat are your thoughts on the signings? Good? Bad?

 

 

Thanks for reading.
