täältä osaavasti kopsasin lyhyet analyysit parista tiimistä:

Daves he is now happy with his squad while chairman Gordon Shepherd has pinpointed a tilt at the play-offs as the aim for the coming campaign. In truth most fans would be happy with improvement on last season, ie a comfortable mid-table position, having spent four seasons in League One prior to the last two. And mid-table it should be for the Oakwell club - unless they can find some away form to match that at home, and then they are capable of a run at the end-of-season play-off lottery. Don't bank on it though.
Birmingham to get promoted. They are strong in every area and have a manager able to bring out the best in his players.
Derby should challenge with an almost entirely new team from the one that ended last season. It may take the players a while to gel in competitive matches, but the line-up contains enough talent and match-winners in front of a solid backline. How they fare will be one of the season's more interesting sub-plots: hazarding a guess, they could end up around fourth place next May.
Can Birmingham, Reading and Derby bounce back?
