Default Championship 2011/12

Gonna be a tough league this year I reckon. I can see West Ham going up in 1st easily but after that the waters muddy quite a bit. Be interesting to see who Brum are left with considering half the team is linked with various moves and how Hughton does at a club he's unfamiliar with.

As an aside about Hughton, apparently he was front runner for the Cardiff job and was impressing at the interview going through a Powerpoint presentation as to what he'd like to do to move the club forward until he clicked to the next slide only for it to be covered in West Ham logos as he'd gone for that job the week before and hadn't bothered to change it. Didn't go over too well and consequently his name didn't go forward to Kuala Lumpa in the final selection. Schoolboy error but he at least got further than Di Matteo who was ruled out immediately at interview as he turned up stinking of booze by all accounts.

Looking forward to seeing what happens in the transfer window as there've been a few clubs now jostling for position the last couple of seasons and always making the playoffs or thereabouts so a few astute signings could make all the difference.

Yep, breaking into that top six will be really difficult. In some respects it's going to be even tougher now that the sides relegated from the prem can get up to three years parachute payments.

Looking at the table, there's going to be some decent sides going down at the end of it. I think the Posh might struggle again, but there doesn't appear to be three obvious relegation candidates.

I think relegation will be between Posh, Palace, Donny Rovers, Derby and Coventry

I'd be quite happy to see Palarse, Cardiff and Brighton filling those places

With so many changes at the CCS it's hard to guess where we'll finish this year. New manager, half the team gone.....I'd like to think we'll still be challenging for the play-offs but we could struggle to stay off the bottom. One thing thats certain is we need some decent signings. Heard good stuff about Craig Conway but we definitely need some forwards as the only recognised striker we have left is fat boy Parkin who's shite.

Talk about being careful what you wish for, just logged onto one of the Cardiff forums after posting that to see we've made an approach for David '2 outstanding assault charges and a rape allegation' Goodwillie. Just what we need

I don't think Wet Sham will run away with it by any means, club is in turmoil.
Cardiff ditto.

I reckon we might see a couple of surprises going up this season.

Southampton not a bad outside bet for the playoffs

Leicester (or more accurately the Asian backers) seem to have enough money to out bid Premier clubs. On the face of it the Thai owners are holding plenty of folding, but there is a story circulating in these parts that behind them are some massively wealthy Chinese. It will be interesting to see how many players we bring in this month. As long as we win the first game at our main rivals Cov' I will be more than happy. Loose and Sven and his Asian backers can all fuck off............. I love being a fickle football fan.
