One View - Hereford
We aim to get a bit of transfer gossip and predictions of league finishes from all of the clubs in League One throughout the summer.

We asked Skeets from the Vital Hereford site a quick fire 10 Questions.

Who are your main transfer targets over the summer?

Toumani Diagoraga from Watford looks to be our No 1 target. Having enjoyed his season on loan the Bulls have an 'option' on his signature. Hopefully he will be persuaded to sign as regular first team football at League One level with Hereford will be progress for him. Graham Turner is a shrewd boss and he'll be tight-lipped over any of his other targets. Bulls fans have grown accustomed to having a small squad late in the summer with late additions put in place at the end of July or early August. I don't see this changing despite promotion.

Who will be leaving / already left from your squad?

John McCombe has not been offered a new contract and sub keeper Michael Ingham has joined York City. It will be interesting to see who decides to stay and compete at League One level.

Who is the best player in your current squad?

Player of the Year 'Superman' Wayne Brown is a fans' favourite, and he has performed some heroics in goal this season. Defender Dean Beckwith continues to grow in stature and despite rumours of a move to Stoke, Swansea or Wolves I think he would be best advised to play consistently well for the Bulls at League One level before considering moving to a Championship or Premier League side!

Who is the worst player in your current squad?

The Bulls had such an excellent team-spirit and togetherness during a thoroughly consistent season that its difficult to point to a 'worst player'. I'd probably have to go for Stephen Gleeson who 'jumped ship' and joined Stockport whilst on-loan from Wolves.

If you were the manager, name one player you would sign (realistically)?

Gavin Williams from Ipswich Town. He made his name at Edgar Street before he starred for Yeovil prompting big-money moves to West Ham and Ipswich. Has had injury and disciplinary problems at Portman Road and whilst under contract the 'tractor-boys' are open to offers. What better place to get his career back on track than with his former mentor Graham Turner - even if its on a long-loan basis.

If there was 1 team in the league you would most like to beat, who is it?

There are quite a few to be honest! Brighton & Hove Albion for sending us down in 1997. Yeovil and Cheltenham for nicking all our best players when we were at deaths door. Walsall, Bristol Rovers and Swindon as rivalry is renewed and if they don't go up...Leeds United so we can keep our unbeaten run going against them!

Who will win promotion from League 1 next season?

Leicester City really ought to be able to bounce straight back into the Championship, but don't rule out Peterborough and the MK Dons who might have the financial clout to go straight through the division.

Who will be relegated from League 1 next season?

Hartlepool, Cheltenham, Yeovil, Crewe, Bristol Rovers, Scunthorpe and Colchester could be involved.

Where will Hereford finish in the league?

We used to finish 17th in the old Division Four season after season, and at this stage I'd settle for that, although consolidation is a dirty word at Edgar Street at the moment.

Where do you think Crewe will finish in the league?

Alex will be fighting it out with us I'm afraid.
