The 2017/18 season of the Sky Bet Championship will begin on Saturday 5th August.

• Replacing the three promoted and relegated teams from last season are Hull City, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, Sheffield United, Bolton Wanderers and Millwall
• Pre-season managerial changes have already occurred at Norwich City, Middlesbrough, Hull Ciy and Wolves, Sunderland, Leeds United are without a manager.

Any early predictions?

Fixtures will be released next Wednesday.

Can't see any of the relegated teams coming straight back up. The only one I think that may be quite well is Boro.

I think Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham will be there or thereabouts.

I will be very surprised if Reading don't get promoted this time. I think Hull could potentially come straight back to the Premier League if they build their squad up and if they stick with one manager throughout the season.

It would be nice to see us not struggle in the Championship for a change but I can't see anything changing in all honesty... sleep.gif

After 10 years I'm back in this topic. Did we have this topic 10 years ago? I don't know.

Was it a Saturday football thread by the way looking through previous topics?

Would love Wednesday to finally do it. I agree that Middlesbrough will be the strongest of the relegated trio - Monk looks like an solid appointment and their squad is decent. Slutsky at Hull is an odd one.

Looking forward to a Steel city derby this coming season. It has been a while...

This appears to be the most recent update on Sunderland's ownership situation according to the BBC.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40358358

Hopefully this club gets the stability it needs, uncertainty over the future does not help the cause.

Norwich started their preparations for this campaign early, so hopefully they have the pre-season to settle the squad and the manager.

Sunderland are in a proper mess, no manager with pre-season weeks away. Feel sorry for their fans.
