'The Championship' Final League Table Prediction

I was bored, so started looking at where i thought teams would finish in this season's league table, then i thought i might as well make a thread about it here, it took me a while to come up with this table and i'm still not sure about it I expect another really close league like last season, i'll probably have Derby higher up than most people will think, but i think Burley's put a good team together, one which is better than the team we had for the last 2 years in the Prem, so here's what i came up with.

1. Wolves
2. Sunderland

3. West Ham
4. Leeds
5. Coventry
6. Derby

7. Sheff Utd
8. Leicester
9. Cardiff
10. Ipswich
11. Millwall
12. Wigan
13. Forest
14. Reading
15. Preston
16. Stoke
17. Crewe
18. Plymouth
19. Burnley
20. Rotherham
21. QPR

22. Gillingham
23. Watford
24. Brighton

I'm sorry to say but I think Leeds are going to really struggle this year they have been decimated squad wise and will take time to gel.
I cannot tip Wolves for the top so I went for Sunderland
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Coventry will do something.
Cardiff are just full of hot air and not quality.
Gillingham were rank last year and I dont see them improving, Plymouth will find it too much, as will Brighton.

No need to; I'd have predicted us to finish 21st. :nervous: Being wrong is quite nice from time to time.

Glen: "That last post of Bastin's is just too authoritative to argue against."

gOD: "It scares the f*ck out of me but I'm with Bastin here."

Cacìni: "Ah, there you go using that absurd über-memory of your's...not fair."

Boyo: "Even when it comes to rap, Bastin is an authority."

Attila_the_Nun: "A most respected scion of Misty Albion, the illustious Bastin - the redoubtable defender of all our noble traditions."

Humbird: "Bastin is very attractive when talking nautical! "

Nah, but i'm sure they'll finish much higher than my original prediction of 21st, around mid table i would say.

Hows good old Iwan doing for you?
It doesn't look good for the Gills currently,
but you had a good win v the Wolfies a few weeks ago and if you can win at Crewe then the teams above will be under more pressure.



I haven't been following "the Championship" much this season though as Norwich aren't in that league for once! (although it seems we'll be back before you know it )


I'm just looking at the current table now, and I thought Brighton would be lower and I have also been surprised by how well QPR are doing thus far this season.
Not surprised by Forest's position though, at a point last season I thought they were getting over their poor form and would do better this season but maybe they will go down this time round.

Nah, the Boos wernt directed at Iwan, hes great. they were directed towards Hess, as he took of our best players again, he seemed to have a habbit of taking off the only players that looked any good.

But Iwans just the player we needed and if im right he managed to go a whole game without gettin booked against Forest
