welcome back Mr BBB.
 
Tell us what you know about all things Caldy.
 
Surely you have an opinion on Waterloo Fantasy Squad.
 
You have plenty of knowledge of Preston and Fylde  - what will they do this season?

Fylde will be slow starters but  will hang on in and avoid relegation.
Hoppers will be hard to beat at home but their points tally will be very low.
Waterloo will find every game the same  sort of battle as last season...a losing one.
Caldy will have to develop a team ethic to work alongside their expensive buy-ins .
Macc will not lose at home all season.
Harrogate will implode financially.
WEstoe will remain in top five all season.
Kendal mid table.
There we are...all liable to be proved wrong

I wouldn't disagree too much with these. Unsure about Harrogate's financial fate (pundits have been forecasting their chaotic ground situation leading to implosion for many years) or Westoe's likely fortunes but they'll be very hard to beat in South Shields.

and.... Huddersfield will be the surprise package under the guile of the new man, Dan Hyde.
 
The students will finish in the top 4.

Mersey,
 
Your poetic reference to me as a swallow on the wing is a flattering but misleading description. I suspect that others would pick a more portly and cumbersome analogy.
 
Until there were some early glimpses of form there seemed to be little point in posting any comments. However as Macclesfield have performed so strongly in their pre season matches it seems to me that they may well have the strongest squad of players in the League and with the significant investment being made to their infrastrusture in the form of new pitches and car parking it is clear to me that as a club they are very ambitious and they will be focused on winning N2N.
 
The competition will be fierce and I expect all clubs to be very competitive with no easy games. Teams like Huddersfield will have learned from last year and with Dan Hyde on board they will have a harder edge. I expect new boys Broadstreet, Westoe and Hull to be ready for their new challenge and they will all start the season with a bang.
 
I expect the opening encounter between Caldy and Westoe to be a tight match with only a few points separating the sides.
 
Harrogate and Loughborough will be better than last season and Kendal, Fylde and Hoppers will be as resolute and robust as ever and no team will relish the journey to Rugby Lions and Leicester Lions
 
Bradford and Bingley, Waterloo and Hull Ionians may struggle away from home but I expect them to be very competitive on their own turf.
 
I cannot see any easy games for anyone this season and with the influx of so many quality players into this league I believe the standard of the games will be significantly higher than in recent seasons.

In past seasons, there has been one team who is outstanding and wins basically every time out & one who loses every time. This season, we are seeing teams that have retained the bulk of their players plus recruiting "expensively" (depends on who you believe)who should stuff the rest out of sight and those who are losing players faster than Hammond in a Bugatti who will suffer.

My picks will be: -

1) Caldy
2) Macclesfield
3) Westoe
4) Hull

The students should be in the mix but depends on the current intake.

These 4 or 5 will be heading out of sight by mid season with Waterloo (sorry chaps) Bradford & Ionians heading the other way. The rest will be fighting amongst themselves to avoid being dragged into the relegation dog fight.

However, injuries to key players will throw spanners into the well organised works and to that end is why I have gone with Caldy as they appear to have the greatest strength in depth.
