Bolton Wanderers Season Preview

Key player: Eoin Doyle Whilst noting that Doyle hasn’t always hit the same heights in the third tier than in the forth, 19 goals for the 33 year old last season takes his tally up to forty four in two seasons,so despite turning 34 next year, Doyle is coming off...

Accrington Stanley Season Preview

Key player: Dion Charles After battling with Colby Bishop for the title of star striker at Accrington in 2020, Charles kicked things up a notch last season and ended the season with 19 goals as the league’s fifth top scorer, an outstanding tally in only his...

Crewe Alexandra Season Preview

Key player: Charlie Kirk I feel like I write the season preview for Crewe every year, and every year I make the same joke about Charlie Kirk sharing a name with an American right-wing ‘activist’ with a tiny tiny face. Has the joke gotten old by now? I’ll let the...

Fleetwood Town Season Preview

Key player: Callum Camps Callum Camps has the ideal mix of having a wealth of League One experience whilst still being young enough to have the potential to go even further. Having been thrust into the Rochdale side as a youngster, Camps went on to make 240...

Charlton Athletic Season Preview

Key player: Akin Famewo Young left-footed centre-back Famewo joins Charlton on loan for the second season in a row, with Norwich offering the South Londoners an option to purchase this time round. He will be a crucial part of the Charlton defence in their campaign...

Cheltenham Town Season Preview

Key player: Ben Tozer “That’s a lazy choice,” I hear you exclaim in unison. “You’ve only chosen him because he was born in Plymouth and came through the Argyle academy.” And yes, whilst there is an obvious link to the Greens there, many other reasons jump to the fore...

Oxford United Season Preview

Key player: Matty Taylor Taylor is perhaps best known for being the first man in three decades to straddle the divide of the River Avon, famously moving from Rovers to City on January Deadline Day in 2019. A top scorer in League One, Taylor (like so many) could not...

Sheffield Wednesday Season Preview

Key player: Lewis Wing The obvious selection here would be Barry Bannan, but the Scot could well move on after six years in Sheffield. Lewis Wing, signed on a season-long loan from Middlesbrough, will need to replace Bannan’s creativity if he does leave. He has taken...

Plymouth Argyle Season Preview

Key player: Conor Grant Now, truth is I was having difficulty deciding which Argyle player to pick for this section. Argyle seem to have a number of players particularly in midfield that are all capable of taking the creative prerogative, whether that be last years...

Portsmouth Season Preview

Key player: Ronan Curtis These days most footballers are pretty sensible. Bordering on dull. They give media-trained stock answers to questions, they don’t go out drinking often, they focus on their football. Ronan Curtis is a bit of a throwback. He was not popular...

Ipswich Town Season Preview

Key player: Scott Fraser Fraser has been a man in the ascendency since he joined English footballer two years ago. The creative midfielder joined Burton in 2018 and his vision and passing range were impressive enough that he earned a move to mid-table challengers...

Morecambe Season Preview

Key Player: Toumani Diagouraga It’s become a bit of a Twitter joke that Derek Adams is someone who simply signs from his former clubs rather than someone who does any meaningful scouting. Whilst it isn’t entirely unfair, you can’t really argue with its results....

Shrewsbury Town Season Preview

Key player: Sean Whalley Following the departure of Harry Chapman who returned to parent club Blackburn at the end of his loan spell at the end of the season, veteran Sean Whalley will be the primary attacking threat on the Shrewsbury wing in their 3-5-2/ 4-3-3...

Sunderland Season Preview

Key player: Aiden McGeady McGeady is a player who defines class. At this level, he’s evidently far too good to compete with most others. His assists per minute output was the second best in the league last season and his role in their success was all the more...

Cambridge United Season Preview

Key player: Wes Hoolahan I think it would be silly not to pick the thirty nine year old Irishman, who is entering his 21st season as a professional and with a whopping 642 career appearances including 86 goals and 103 assists. A talented and diminutive, attacking...

Milton Keynes Season Preview

Key player: Max Watters The impressive signings of Mo Eisa and Max Watters have shown Martin’s attacking intent for the season ahead, switching from 3-4-2-1 to a 3-4-1-2 formation with the two aiming to fill the void left by Cameron Jerome who joined...

Wigan Athletic Season Preview

Key player: Jack Whatmough Whilst Charlie Wyke, Gwion Edwards and Max Power will be the headline signings standing out to most League One fans, Jack Whatmough could prove to be their most important signings this summer. There was much surprise that when the...

Wimbledon Season Preview

Key player: Alex Woodyard Only 20-goal striker Joe Pigott, who moved to Ipswich in the summer, played more minutes than Woodyard last season. The central midfielder has been a journeyman so far in his career, never managing more than two seasons at one club. He might...

Doncaster Rovers Season Preview

Key player: Fejiri Okenabirhie Like last season, much of Doncaster’s attacking play may run through, and be to the benefit of, Fejiri Okenabirhie. He’s had to work hard to reach this point. Failing to make the grade at Arsenal, he joined the youth ranks at Stevenage...

Rotherham United Season Preview

Key player: Michael Smith One major philosophical pillar of Warne’s leadership as manager is his flexibility. He prioritises results over pretty football. That’s not to say the two are incompatible but with a big striker like Smith, a long ball style seems to be the...
