    Looking like that it will be much the same at the upper end of the table,Tns,Gap and Bala so what about the bottom two,do both Caernarfon and Llanelli have enough in the tank ? Barry Town well you never knew and a bit like Llandudno what team was turning up. Both Cefn and The Met look stable mid table as for Aber and Newtown i will leave that with you. Again it looks like a bit of a slog for Carmarthen although i don't like teams staying by default.

    The Euro money , which is more this year, will see them through even with Nomads losing Gap as a sponsor , perhaps the Chinese connection will kick in there? TNS with around £1m ought to win, Bala , Druids to make top 4. Met may depend on students who stay or go, Barry should do ok again, we’ll run and funded. Caernarfon will survive and could go top 6, Llandudno with a brand new squad may surprise this time. Newtown,Aber, Carmarthen, Llanelli, bottom 4 in some order for me.

    Has anything changed from my earlier thoughts?
    Not really
    TNS will have more euro money and win/buy the league
    Bala have signed well and take 2nd
    Nomads ought to have enough to come 3rd
    Druids with some great signings 4th
    So that’s the 4 clubs with Europe money
    Barry stable and very strong together and caernarfon a good solid team that will win enough and plenty of goals in them 5 & 6

    Met 7th, Aber 8th, Llanelli 9th
    Bottom 3
    Newtown,Carmarthen, Llandudno,
    The 8 clubs without euro money have all struggled to bring in quality
    Outside of Cardiff Met who will do ok, the other 7 don’t seem to have a striker who can score them 15 plus.
    Aber back to basics should be ok, along with promoted Llanelli and a steady but ordinary Newtown
    Carmarthen got out of gaol last season and Llandudno on paper looked to be strengthening but after flirting with relegation for 2 seasons could go down this time
    Coming up from tier 2
    Flint and Haverfordwest

    No real surprises
    TNS besting Barry bit a higher score than expected
    Nomads hammering Llanelli again more goals than expected
    Bala struggles against a resolute Carmarthen who ought to beat others around them
    Cardiff only just too good for Newtown
    Caernarfon best a poor Druids in an uninspiring TV game
    Aber as expected too good for a still misfiring Llandudno needing a striker like a few other sides
    Too early to say but the signs are there
