Replacing the three promoted and relegated teams from last season are Swansea City, Stoke City, West Brom, Wigan Athletic, Blackburn Rovers and Rotherham United
Pre-season managerial changes have already occurred at Ipswich Town, Queens Park Rangers, Stoke City, Derby County. Leeds United and Swansea City are currently looking for a manager.



Any early predictions?

I suspect Villa and Boro will be there or thereabouts. Of the relegated Premier League teams I can probably see Stoke being the strongest and the biggest fighting chance.

Gonna go on a whim here and say if Birmingham invest in the right players they have a good shot too.

It would be great to see Stoke fighting for a promotion place. It'd also be great to see Leeds up there but we all know that's not going to happen.

So, the Championship returns tomorrow night with live coverage on Sky of Reading v Derby.

I'm going to say that I think Aston Villa get promoted back to the Premier League.

Good luck to Bristol City for the upcoming season... sold some of their best players this summer but signed some good ones too! Wouldn't discount them from a promotion push fingers crossed.

I think West Brom will get promoted if they can carry their end of season form into this new season. If Darren Moore was their manager for longer then they probably would have stayed up last season. Tony Pulis as Middlesbrough's manager will be out for revenge on them for getting the sack and they will have a good chance as well.

I expect a season of struggle rather than a promotion push. sad.gif

It's the first time since the 03/04 season that I haven't renewed my season ticket. I'm feeling very pessimistic about are chances of doing well (especially after our dreadful performances/results in the second half of last season and losing our best players).

Yesterday was interesting... City started brilliantly, first 20 minutes they should have scored more than once but once Forest equalised they offered nothing. Had to defend for long periods just to get a draw.

Based on that, I think another mid-table finish - not a disaster at all. It would be a shame though, as I think City's style could potentially thrive in the Premier League and the whole Bristol area would relish top-flight football.

I was completely the opposite and didn't think it was at all susprising they lost to the 2nd favourites to be relegated yesterday. Following Pardew when they were already down with absolutely zero expectation or pressure as they were as good as already relegated is a completely different type of task to dropping down a division and playing with the tag of favourites in most games. Their squad is still in upheaval and I think they're the worst prepared of the teams who have been relegated.

A good result for Forest yesterday, on paper that was our hardest game in August. Will be disappointed if we don't get two home wins against WBA and Reading this week. Add Byram to the squad and top 6 is as good as nailed.

You were at the game mate?

We play a nice style of football but I don't think Lee Johnson is good enough tactically to take us to the next level, yet. It's a young team that can only get better, and Johnson is still a young coach who should hopefully improve with experience. Slow progress I think.

Didn't go nah laugh.gif listened on the radio and chatted to some Forest fans when I was out in town Saturday evening.

Shame Joe Bryan looks like being sold, especially to another Championship team - he's looked very good whenever I've seen him and who can forget his goal against Man United.

At QPR, Tony Fernandes has stepped aside and Amit Bhatia has taken over as chairman.

For those who aren't aware there's a 90-minute Championship highlights package at 9pm on Saturdays (so it dovetails into MotD.

It's on Freeview 38 (Quest).

Another loss at home for Hull. cry.gif A few seasons ago and we had one of the best home records in the league, and we always used to do fairly well at home in the Premier League. I don't even know the team anymore.

I hope we do go down tbh, then the Allam's can sell cheaply and get the f*** out of our club before we go into administration.

This programme is hard to watch, normally I don't follow the Championship but this season I've decided to try to watch it regularly but Quest don't seem to have an on demand service that works if you miss it on TV. They should have left the programme on Channel 5 because they at least have an on demand service that actually works!

They plug the on-demand service regularly during the show. It's a little embarrassing if it doesn't actually work.
