With the League One starting on August, another battle for the permanence will start again. Most of the teams are already making new signings in order to prepare themselves for a long season. With over 40 matches, consistency is the key, especially in the lower zones, where a bad streak might mean the relegation.

For the promoted teams, there seems to be some differences between them. Portsmouth is expected to make a great comeback to the League One, aiming if not for a playoff spot, at least to settle themselves in the league. They lost their manager, Paul Cook, but signed the always reliable Kenny Jacket (who got their last two teams promoted in the League). Blackpool, on the opposite, will struggle in the division. They got promoted after beating Exeter City in the playoffs. That didn’t stop a massive exodus of players, and having to rebuild from scratch a team to fight for the relegation isn’t always an easy task. Manager Gary Bower will have to retain some of the key players that are still around, such as the forward Kyle Bessell or the young midfielder Brad Potts, and add some experienced players to the squad to have a chance.

Plymouth Argyle, other promoted team, is also shifting the squad for the season. However, they’ll seem to retain some of the best players, such as Ryan Taylor, Jake Jervis and the centre-back Yann Song’o. It’s also expected some important signings, with the signing of Lionel Ainsworth (who played for Motherwell in the Scottish Premier League the past season) already confirmed. A similar future is expected for Doncaster Rovers, which will keep a stable squad with some transfers already in the making. Both teams shouldn’t have any issue to stay one season in the League One if everything works well.

A different outcome is expected for Walsall. The team had a good season, but some of the best players are leaving, such as the goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, who will play for Cardiff City next season. The young Erhun Oztumer, a promising offensive midfielder, is already in the radar of several teams and his future seems far from Walsall. How Jon Withney will be able to replace some of the names he is losing is the big question for a team with modest financial means.

Gillingham FC was on the verge of relegation last season, avoiding it only by one point. Adrian Pennock is losing some players, but the problem might lie in who will join the team for another though fight in the lower zone. The same will happen with Shrewsbury Town. Their short squad was an issue in the long tournament, and not having good replacements hurt them. Eventually, they avoided the relegation for a few points, but they can’t repeat that performance. Bury FC is other team compromised with the relegation, and will lose most of the squad during the transfer window. Their last revamp proved to be not enough for the league, and for this season Lee Clark is signing experienced players, such as the goalkeeper Joe Murphy (35), the forward Jermain Beckford (33) and the midfielder Stephen Dawson (31) with the idea of having a experienced squad to fight with the pressure of the relegation fight.
