On August, the EFL League One will run a new season. 24 teams will fight for three promotion spots. Last season Sheffield United ruled the tournament with a 100 points mark, followed by Bolton Wanderers. Millwall gained the last promotion spot through playoffs.

This season will have some big names incoming from the Championship. Blackburn Rovers, Wigan Athletic and Rotherham United will try to “bounce back” to the second division as fast as they can. Blackburn was on the verge of keeping their place in the Championship, but even after winning the final match, they were relegated by goal difference. From these three teams, the Rovers are the better prepared to face the competition. Even with a lot of their players leaving, if they can keep at least some of the best performers, such as Elliott Bennet or Danny Graham, plus some quality signs for the division, they’ll have a competitive team.

Wigan Athletic had a forgettable past season, having relegated weeks before the last encounter. On the positive side, if there’s any, they don’t seem to have a massive revamp of their squad incoming. Although on this situations, one can expect a lot of new signings in an effort to try to have the best squad available. After their relegation from the Premier League on the 12/13 season, they’ve relegated to the League One and bounced back last season. Maybe they’ll be able to repeat that history this season.

Rotherham United will have a tougher transition. The Millers had a really bad season, with only 28 points achieved in the Championship. Most of the current players will be probably looking for new horizons, and the team will have to be built from scratch. Although the players didn’t make it to the Championship standards, some of them may be able to shine in the League One.

Charlton Athletic had a difficult transition in the League One after being relegated last season. But they’ll remain as one of the main contenders. They have a quality squad for the league, and a transfer window to enhance it. Should they do this, they’ll be one of the candidates for a promotion.

Scunthorpe United and Fleetwood Town surprised everyone last season, which superb performances that lead them to the playoffs and were near the direct promotion spots. For Scunthorpe things might be a little difficult, with some of their key players leaving. The future of Josh Morris, the best player in the last season, it’s uncertain. If they can hold him and rebuild the squad, they might repeat the past performance. Fleetwood seems a little more stabilized, with more certainty in the squad. With some transfers, they might be able to do well again. Finally, Bradford, the other team in the playoffs, suffered the short squad they had with only 22 players. If they can improve this for this season, they’ll be again in the first spots discussing the title. In a tournament with 46 matches, consistency is the key, and the way to achieve it is by having good replacements when your main players can’t perform at their level.
