Who is your favourite for the title?
With the season only a handful of weeks away managers are starting to dream once more of the glory and fame that could await them just over nine months from now should they manage to top the league, win the cup or win the all important play off final.
The question at this stage of the season is just who will those winners be?
The previous two seasons have shown that there really is no real favourite as the season starts and last year in particular was such an open campaign that the league winners Steaua Needarest only hit the top on the final day of the season!!
Last season this blog was accused of being so far wide of the mark when it installed Sixteen Samurai as the favourites for the league title and for weeks it defended its decision until it was clear that the Samurai were actually favourites for relegation rather than adulation. Now we are not a publication that refuses to admit when we are wrong and rather than try and predict this years winners and get it completely wrong again we decided to run another poll and ask you the ones (supposedly) in the know who you think are the ones to watch this year.
Of course we fully expect one or two to vote for themselves but we thought it would be interesting all the same.
There are of course the usual suspects in the consistent performers like the ArgoDwarfs, Dragons, Untied and Steaua but don’t discount the teams that are always there nipping at the heels of the big four such as Gally City, Toffees, Phatties, Ass Kickers and the Girls. Maybe, just maybe, it is time for one of these teams to move up one more gear and become a real force within BeerandBoobs.
Then there are the teams which were finding their feet a little in their first season last year but proved that they will be a force to be reckoned with after benefitting from their first season experience. The Lightning, Real and the 69ers will be hungry for success this term.
Of course you may want to be charitable and cast your vote for a team such as BEGD FC, Corona, Samurai, Italian Job, or some such team which will be hoping that that this might just be the year that they justify their place amongst the elite.
But of course, although we have included them we don’t expect anyone to really fancy BareAssAlona. Not even Kieron himself!!
There are also a number of new teams this year and it is not beyond the realms of possibility that the Rusty Browns or Torpedo Belgrano could surprise us all.
So go on, place Have your say below and have your say in who the pre season favourites will be. Let’s see if you can get it right this year.
