Leicester City 1011 Opponents Preview 6

This is my last Npower Championship preview feature for this Dale Hawerchuk Jersey season, today I will focus on three teams, Sheffield United, Swansea City and Watford. Comments are indeed welcomeSheffield United Kevin Blackwell still remains in charge ofSheffield United, the 51 old has made numerous changes to his squad over the summer, as many loan signings which joined the club last season have completely gone. Blackwell has a very small squad and numbers could well affect them, in the early part of the 2010/2011 campaign. New signings Steve Simonsen, Johannes Ertl, Leon Britton andDaniel Bogdanovic will all be included in Sheffield Uniteds squad for their first game of the season. Meanwhile the defence lacks depth as the manager has only five defenders to choose from, rotation may be needed as Blackwell could well play Ertl in defence plus Simon Walton; however the loanee has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Overall the Blades could well struggle in the early part of the season, the defence is limited while the Ondrej Pavelec Jersey midfield has a more defensive look about it, lastly the strikers could well do the damage as Bogdanovic, Henderson and Ched Evans could all be lethal to their opponents. Prediction 9thSwansea Swansea City will be led by new management this season, Brendan Rodgers was the man appointed by chairman Huw Jenkins. It was believed that Rodgers wasnt Swanseas first choice, however with a squad to play around with and big named players involved in the unit, the Welsh side could well Tyler Myers Jersey have another decent campaign. The squad is big on numbers and the club has currently been linked with some high profile players, such as Scott Sinclair of Chelsea. The defence looks very strong as Ashley Williams, Gary Monk and Alan Tate will yet again play key roles this season. In midfield key player Darren Pratley is close to agreeing a new deal, while Scott Donnelly has joined the club from Aldershot Town. Overall Swansea City look a very capable side, however the strikers failed Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey to deliver the goods in 2009/2010 plus the new manager Brendan Rodgersfailed at his former club Reading. Prediction 19thWatford Malky Mackay and his Hornets have gone backwards over the summer transfer window; the club has been forced to lose many good players especially last years loan signings in Tom Cleverley, Henri Lansbury and Watford legend Heider Helguson. On a positive note manager Mackay has stated that he could po sibly enforce a number of loan signings into the club, while former manager Graham Taylor will stay on as chairman. Even though Watford will have to rely on a number of youngsters this season, the likes ofLee Hodson, Dale Bennett and Ro s Jenkins have already shown that they are capableof playing at Championship level. On the other hand all eyes will be on Danny Graham, he is the main source for the goals other than that 20 year old Will Buckley will have to step up to the plate if Watford are to have a succe sful season. Overall the squadlacks depth, however most of the youngsters have played at Championship level before, if Danny Graham and WillBuckley start scoring, and the experienced players such as Lloyd Doyley, Adrian Mariappa and John Eustacestay strongrelegation wont be a threat.
