Can't see any of the three relegated teams coming back up but I think Fulham might be closest.

Leeds for automatic is the popular bet, but the popular bet hardly ever wins that division (Wolves two seasons ago the exception).

I'll say WBA as champions, followed by Leeds and then Derby and Boro to fail in the playoffs again, leaving the door open for surprise package Luton to take their third straight promotion. It's the sort of weird shit that can actually happen in that division.

As a league, the Championship is more interesting than the Premier League.

Random number generator predicted Luton, Barnsley and Preston.

I was gonna joke that those 3 have about as good a chance as any serious prediction I'd make, but no fucking way are those 3 going up.

I'm gonna go for Leeds, West Brom and Cardiff.

One of my good mates is a WBA fan and he's saying they'll probably finish mid-table after selling Jay Rodriguez, and Dwight Gayle returning to Newcastle after his loan ended.

Basically they don't have any goalscorers.

Also, Leeds are a funny one

I wasn't keeping up with it; why did they fall away last season?

Maybe a tiny bit simplistic, they had a squad that was never tipped for the title in the first place, but they looked knackered the last few months.

Reading are paying for their fans travel for 15 of their furthest away trips in 2019-20 and will be paid for by owner Mr Yongge Dai this season. Absolutely brilliant.

They’ve brought in some quality this window, but they’ve still got a Pontus Jansson shaped hole in the squad - think they’ve only got one loan spot available now...

Lukaku might be interested in joining Wigan now that his move to Juve might be off.

He’d be the first player to have eaten his club’s mascot.

My local club Luton kicking the new season off tonight. As much as I love Keano, hope he ends up on the losing side tonight as Middlesbrough travel to Kenilworth Road. COYH!
