SkyBet Championship 2014/15, the most difficult league to get out of.


Relegated from the Premier League last season, and so automatic favourites to return from whence they came, are cool and good lads Norwich City, the Welsh lot from Cardiff, and the Cottagers from Fulham.

Promoted teams from League One include Wolverhampton Wanderers, who could break into the top 6 in their first season back, Rovram United, who will return from whence they came, and Brentford. I have no clue about Brentford.

Fulham have made the biggest signing so far in the summer transfer window by stealing Ross McCormack from fellow promotion favourites Leeds United AFC, for a discount 11,000,000. McCormack will probably help his new club gain immediate promotion, which is deeply sickening. Derby and Wigan will probably do well. Norwich will be up there.

Blackpool have 10 players to choose from so far, so expect them to struggle. Millwall are pretty bad. Brentford are probably not strong enough to stay up, nor Rovram, but there's some bad teams competing for those three relegation spots so it's a very hard thing to predict.

Leeds, the biggest club in the division by a long way (lots of leeds fans in this forum) with their influx of Italian gods, and a manager nobody in the world had heard of six months ago, will either win the league by miles, or get relegated before christmas. Boro, another club popular with users in this forum, will finish below Leeds, or I have to pay more money to my bestest friends at man utd, probably. (They will play each other in the second game of the season, broadcast live on Sky Sports).

The opening fixtures, and league table:

Was fun going in the local pubs last year and all the Brentford fans were singing "Bees up Fulham down" (to the tune of "Knees up mother brown"). I hope they can stay up but it'll be tough.

I heard Blackpool have 11 players now!

I'm looking forward to seeing who any of Fulham's new players are, because we have sold our entire shithouse team from last year, and everyone is ok with that. Maybe by the time the season starts, we will even have a keeper. But then who can say in this crazy sport?

Blackpool signed good lad Jose Miguel Cubero so I will be following them (if they ever get a full squad).

Also I guess Bryan Ruiz is still a Fulham player so will be following them too unless they sell him.

Oh, it'll be a car crash, I'm sure, but who wants to be kept waiting around for a car crash? We've got our randomly-selected manager, we've got our dodgy Italian freebooters, we've got our packed lunches, so bring it on.

...one of those questy kind of things.

I don't know enough about Millwall to hate them, but Timo Soini, the leader of Finland's biggest right wing party is a Millwall supporter for some reason, so I figure there must be something wrong with the club as well.

I also like to imagine that most Millwall supporters look like him.

And then we announced a partnership with a "sports nutrition" company who have no website, don't have a logo to place on their Facebook page they speedily registered and are owned by two 32yo guys with 9 bankrupt companies under their directorship already.

We're fast racing Leeds for some kind of joke club award. We'll announce we're opening a Blockbusters at the stadium soon at this rate.
