Boro Prediction League 17/18 Sign Up   Message 43103Tue, 11 July 2017 16:57  Go to next message

"Where's next season's Prediction League Sign Up Thread?" I hear literally none of you cry. Well here it is, right here.

Same deal as usual. Predict your top 4 and bottom 4 teams and maybe your name could join this sublime sextet:

09/10 - Nigel L
10/11 - BBChris
11/12 - Fingers McKenzie
12/13 - BORO
13/14 - Farnboroughfan1
14/15 - BORO
16/17 - Lady18Yarder

Don't forget:

Paddy's Rule

Once you have submitted your entry, that entry is final.


That's it. You can put your entry in now or you can put it in the day before the start of the season. Either reply to this thread or if you want no-one else to know your prediction you can PM me on this forum, email me(trents88@hotmail.com) or send it to me on bookface.

Here's how last season panned out:

I've got my bottom four nailed on. The top four is much harder, so thinking time is needed. :0)

Scratch my comment above. Here we go:-

Top four:

1. Hereford
2. King's Lynn Town
3. Sluff
4. Merthyr Town


Bottom four:

21. Basingstoke Town
22. Gosport Borough
23. King's Langley
24. Dunstable Town

Hereford have more resources than any other club in the division. The owner of King's Lynn has put his money where his mouth is; he's apppointed an ex-EPL Assistant Manager (at Aston Villa and Norwich) as his main man - there aren't too many coaches with EPL experience operating in the Southern League. Jonny Underpants and Neil Baker, ex-Boro' stalwarts, know this league well and have been given the money for Slough to progress on last season's fine finish. Merthyr, always competitive, have been quietly building.

It's all about no money at the other end. That said, there's only one relegation spot this season due to the 2018/19 reorganisation, so some of the clubs that did well last year have been pulling in the purse-strings. I'm looking at you Chesham.

Top Four:
1. Hereford FC
2. Merthyr Town
3. Hitchen Town
4. Slough Town

Bottom Four:
Gosport Borough
Dunstable Town
Kings Langley
St Neots Town.

I am hoping that Farnborough will end up mid table, stay in this league for a few seasons and enjoy a few successful cup runs. Good luck to all!
Up the Boro!

They no longer have a benefactor and there is no money.

The club's committee turned down a takeover offer recently, because the prospective new owners wanted the club to resign from the Southern League completely and step down to the United Counties.

Their current plan is to run pretty much on an amateur basis this season, using a squad of youngsters.

Unless something dramatic happens Basingstoke are likely to be in a similar position, but with a vastly more experienced manager. The current speculation is that 'Stoke won't have the funds to continuing paying their remaining contracted players. We'll see what happens soon enough.

As I understand it, there is only one relegation spot this season, so expect the less ambitious clubs to cut back significantly on their wage bills. Contrary to popular opinion, a fair few club chairmen are not daft and will save money whenever they can! :0)

Thanks Nigel, very interesting. Have to say I feel sorry for the Basingstoke fans and the situation their club is presently in.

I can see this being a very strange season, with some Clubs just doing enough to get by, due to the one relegation spot this season, and the massive Leagues reorganisation next year.

I think most will coast along, letting the money boys plough on, and there will be an almighty dogfight from February onwards, from mid table downwards, to ensure that there is at least two teams below you at the end.

Could be interesting!!!
