Cody Strunk's League Two Forecast 2007/8


Cody Strunk

Although Cody Strunk may have a name more in keeping with those who don low-quality knitwear on USA golf courses, his passion is very much for the beautiful game...

1. Milton Keynes Dons
Having just missed out on automatic promotion last season and then fallen at the first hurdle in the play-offs, MK Dons will be more desperate than most to clamber out of League Two this time, particularly with the move into the new …

2. Peterborough United
The financial clout given to Peterborough United by owner Darragh MacAnthony was always going to make them firm favourites for promotion going into the new campaign. The summer spending has been relatively low key, but Darren...

3. Darlington
Ambitious Darlington have flattered to deceive of late, but manager Dave Penney should have them in the promotion mix in this, his first full season in charge. The summer recruits certainly offer plenty of room for optimism, with Pawel Abbott ...

4. Chesterfield
Manager Lee Richardson looks to have made some shrewd signings over the summer and Chesterfield should be there or thereabouts in their attempts to secure a swift return to League One. A lack of goals proved costly last term, so ...

5. Wycombe Wanderers
After a strong start to their league campaign and a fantastic run in the Carling Cup, Wycombe Wanderers fell away badly to finish in mid-table. Manager Paul Lambert has been backed over the summer and brought in a number of new...

6. Bradford City
Bradford City has tumbled down the divisions at a fairly rapid rate in recent seasons, with the club continuing to pay the price for their excesses in the Premiership. There are plenty of positives though, with the Bantams now on a...

7. Shrewsbury Town
The Shrews missed out on promotion in the play-off final last season after a strong surge after Christmas. They will be looking to maintain that momentum going into the current campaign, although the move to a new stadium might just...

8. Rochdale
Rochdale came with a storming run over the second half of last season following the appointment of Keith Hill as manager, so they will be looking to carry that form going into the new campaign. They found goals easy to come by last term, ...

9. Lincoln City
Perennial top seven finishers in League Two, Lincoln City may have finally missed out on the chance to win promotion after their latest failure to navigate the play-offs. They struggled over the latter months of last season, so it will be important...

10. Stockport County
A record-breaking run of nine consecutive victories without conceding a goal generated plenty of interest in Stockport County last season, but they eventually just missed out on a place in the play-offs on goal difference. The goalkeeper...

11. Grimsby Town
Last season was a major disappointment for Grimsby, as they failed to build on narrowly missing out on promotion in 2005-06. Manager Alan Buckley returned to the club mid-term for a third spell in charge of the Mariners and his vast...

12. Notts County
With a number of useful looking additions to their squad over the summer, Notts County will be expecting to improve on last season’s mid-table finish. The Magpies would have achieved more last season had they not lost so many games...

13.Chester City
A number of interesting summer signings suggest that Chester City could be capable of some improvement in the coming campaign, with manager Bobby Williamson bringing in several experienced players. The returns of Kevin Ellison...

14. Dagenham & Redbridge
The Daggers sauntered to the Conference championship last season, despite losing key players in Shane Blackett and Craig Mackail-Smith in the January transfer window. They did at least retain striker Paul Benson and his 28 goals...

15. Bury
Bury are a club who are always counting the pennies, so the additional revenue from the David Nugent deal that saw the Shakers former striker move from Preston North End to Portsmouth was unquestionably the most important transfer...

16. Rotherham United
Having started the season with a 10-point penalty, Rotherham United worked wonders in rapidly extricating themselves from the bottom four, only to fall away again once the hard work had seemingly been done. The January sales of Will...

17. Wrexham
Wrexham were in danger of dropping into the Conference for much of last season, but eventually managed to scramble their way to safety. More will be expected this term, with Brian Carey having strengthened the Red Dragons over...

18. Morecambe
The experience of manager Sammy McIlroy looks to be the biggest plus point for Morecambe as they embark on their first season in the Football League. The squad is little changed from last season, although the departures of Conference...

19. Brentford
The loss of Martin Allen at the end of the 2005-06 season always looked likely to be a significant blow for Brentford, who had performed well above the sum of their parts under the recently appointed Leicester City manager. Relegation to...

20. Mansfield Town
There looks to be room for improvement at Field Mill this season, particularly after persuading their highly-rated defender, Alex John-Baptiste, to stay at the club over the summer. Mansfield did struggle late on last season, with the mid-...

21. Accrington Stanley
After just a season back in the Football League, Accrington Stanley go into their second campaign somewhat unfairly marked up as favourites for the drop back into non-league football with many bookies. There are certainly areas of concern,...

22. Barnet
A solid mid-table performance represented a pretty decent season for Barnet last time out, but it is one that they will do well to match that over the coming campaign given the summer departures of the likes of Simon King and Nicky...

23. Hereford United
It was a perfectly satisfactory first season back in League Football after promotion from the Conference for Hereford United, although they did find goals hard to come by. The vastly experienced Graham Turner has looked to address the...

24. Macclesfield Town
Having seemingly been doomed to relegation early on in the season, Macclesfield came to life under the stewardship of Paul Ince and steered their way clear of the drop-zone. Any hope of building on that achievement were dealt a blow by Ince’s ...
