EFL Championship

Calendar 5th August

Football icon Chuba Akpom top goalscorer
Arrow down

Chuba Akpom started last season as an unwanted player at Middlesbrough and largely stuck around because the club didn’t back Chris Wilder in the transfer market.

What followed was a remarkable campaign during which the 27-year-old had the season his career was yet to see – the one where he became the main man for his side and scored goals for fun. He changed position to one slightly off the front and scored 28 goals, taking the Championship top goalscorer crown.

There’s little reason he won’t continue to be a success. Michael Carrick has set his Middlesbrough side up to be a fluent, attacking outfit that control games and spend most of their time in the final third. They have added more attacking flair and will recruit top-quality loanees.

Some may prefer the likes of Vardy, however his ageing legs mean he won’t play 46 Championship games. Daka & Iheanacho will also get game time, which makes minutes for any of the 3 very unpredictable.

EFL League One

Football icon Peterborough to finish top 6

Posh tend to be there or thereabouts each year, they’re 5th favourite to take the title this year at a price of 10/1.

Last season ended in heartbreak, as they somehow threw away a 4 goal advantage in the play-offs to eventual winners Sheffield Wednesday.

They did move on a few players, which isn’t uncommon in their model. But they did make some good additions, with Romoney Crichlow and Archie Collins coming in. Perhaps most importantly is retaining the services of Johnson Clarke-Harris, he scored 27 times last season and 31 in his previous League One campaign.

Darren Ferguson’s sides are very well balanced. If they can become a bit more astute defensively, they can be right up there, given how dangerous they are going forward. I think play-offs is the bare minimum this season.

EFL League Two

Much focus will be on Wrexham for League Two, but in my opinion, the value lies with County.

After a difficult start to life in League Two, they stormed up the table, falling just short of the top three and coming up short in the play-off final after taking a first half lead.

The primary reason to continue backing the Edgeley Park outfit is the resource they have available to go again, even with some big-hitters arriving they rank highly.

They have already pulled off one of the signings of the League Two summer in ex-Manchester United man Nick Powell as well as coaxing long-serving left-sided defender Ibou Touray from Salford City. They also added Louie Barry on loan from Aston Villa, who impressed at Salford last season.

Also, with key players enjoying a longer summer after a couple of injury issues last year, they are well set up to go once more in front of our raucus home crowd.

Football icon Crawley to be relegated

Crawley Town owners WAGMI are seemingly doing everything in their power to lead Crawley Town back to non-league by making the wrong decisions, time and time again, their summer transfer business has been questionable, to say the least.

From splashing out financially, creating videos mocking opponents, making poor managerial appointments and now trying to cut their losses, it’s been a disaster class in on-pitch operations.

Inexperienced boss Scott Lindsay has his work cut out trying to create cohesion amongst his squad with some players earning far more than others.

Six of their nine signings were playing non-league football last year with four stepping up at least two divisions to the EFL. And their recruitment is so impressive they have paid a fee for somebody they could have signed for free a month prior, with Jay Williams arriving from Brackley Town.

They’ve released a tonne of EFL experience and the little quality they had. Perhaps the nail in the coffin arrived recently as striker Ashley Nadesan departed. Maybe his final straw was Crawley being tanked 9-1 by Portsmouth in a friendly.

There’s a genuine chance they set a record low for points this season.
