With seven games gone, the League Two table is beginning to take shape. It is rather predictable which end the Daggers find themselves at, as we look set for a third consecutive season of struggle with only goal difference keeping us out of the drop zone. What’s going wrong and is anything going right?
Following up on our picks for individual and team glory in League 2 earlier this week, it is time to turn the attention to League 1. We’ll be hoping to repeat last year’s success with 9/1 shot Charlton whilst picking a slightly better candidate for top scorer after last season’s pick Clayton Donaldson never entered the equation.
Our look at season bets for 2012/13 is long overdue with the action already underway. Readers of last year’s advice will have raked in some cash on Charlton to win the league at 9/1 but unfortunately our accumulator fell short with Brighton and Oxford 7 and 6 places shy of the money respectively. Anybody who took our outsider pick, Southend, would’ve been particularly unlucky as they finished just 1 point outside the cash. Still, a profit overall for the season, and we’ll aim to improve this year starting in League 2.
In mid-March the Daggers were doomed, sitting bottom of the league and hurtling towards a second successive relegation. Finally kicking into action, we were a team reborn in the final seven weeks of the season, pulling well clear of the drop zone to finish in the dizzy heights of 19th place. As a poignant juxtaposition, we’ve also left it late to look at just how we managed it…
OK, we’ve just been lazy, but it sounded good no?
