Your league probably has six teams in it lol - you need to finish third at least.

There is always an amalgamation of mini-leagues within the framework of the Championship, makes it so fascinating, worrying I think the Saints may be joining the ranks next season. I suppose i will get to more games as i have a good knowledge around the grounds of the league, and they don't piss about with the kick off times as much.

Looking forward to hopefully Norwich and Forest overcoming the Corporate opponents in the Cup this weekend, not to mention come on Derby at Old Trafford, it would be great for football and Rowett's CV.

It's the steel city derby. Anyone else watching? United are just outside the play-off places and three new signings might feature while Wednesday have another new manager.

What an absolutely shite game. There'll be more steel city derbies next season.

Was one of the least-entertaining steel-city derbys, saying that the encounter at Hillsborough earlier this season, gave this clash a lot to live up to. Wednesday i found were well set-out, and continued that trait even after defensive-lynchpin Loovens dismissal.

I think we should have seen it coming. Wednesday look barren and United are well off the boil, not won in ten games now.

What about Wildschutt (spelt it wrong, i think), came on for Cardiff after 3 sleepless nights with his newborn (i know how hard that can be), was brilliant and assisted their 4th goal against, granted a chronic Sunderland, not only that but just arriving from Norwich on loan.

Was refreshing to enjoy two Championship fixtures televised on Saturday (as i dont have BT), however would have probably chosen Forest v Villa over Spurs v Everton anyway.

I tipped Villa to go up before a ball was kicked, im under no illusion about who is winning the Championship though. Wolves have been on a different platform most of this season, so definitively favourites. The run for 2nd place and the play-offs is going to be truly riveting this season. Dubious penalty i know, however Fulham's win at Middlesbrough has furthered their credentials, shot them to 8th.

The battle at the bottom is going to be equally fascinating. Last season we had Rotherham who you could tell were not 2nd tier quality and it told, nearlly conceding a century of goals. This season however there is only Sunderland that are performing at a ridiculously below-par level. Refreshingly Burton can hold their own on their day, how gutting for Jackson Irvine would it be if Hull went down (considering it was a 'big move'), and his grizzled old side Burton stayed up. Just think if Hull and Sunderland both go down for 2nd consecutive relegations, parachute payments may construe to trap-door exits to League 1.

Birmingham City's win at the Wednesday of Saturday really screwed up my selections! A draw would have won me £148 instead they go & win.

On a bit of a run at the moment Birmingham. Sunderland at the moment, well for 1 and a half seasons, in 2 different tiers are truly tragic. Thought they may do a Wolves before a ball was kicked, that being 2 consecutive relegations from the Prem, its looking more like a reality following every game.

So in additional to promoting Wolves, it looks as though Fulham's 1-1 draw with Brentford could have pushed Cardiff over the line...

Fulham and Wolves have recruited very, very well. Cardiff, not so much.

Went to watch Wigan Athletic v Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday & it was a really good game which Atletico deserved to win & should have done so comfortably (the score line flattered Wednesday). Only cost me £15 & a pie & a pint was £5.80
