    Hull are good at the whole yo-yo thing though aren't they?

    Either way I think those recently relegated teams despite being in the same league as us Championship regulars still have the larger advantage and biggest attraction for players to move to.
    I agree with you there, Sunderland will throw massive money at a big name striker. Hope its McCormack rather than Britt tho

    Sunderland like villa hung around for years getting worse and worse till they fell.... and as per villa chucking a shit load of cash at it wont solve the problem.

    All hinges on JD if they do well or not

    thing is defoe class, to get 15 goals this season in that team shows he is a class poacher but apparently he can leave for free due to a relegation clause, at 34 and maybe 1 more premier league season left in him would expect him to leave

    Martin who couldn't get into the Fulham side?

    Derby fans always say they are going walk the league but I honestly think they have blown it with the current squad. Their expensive players have only performed in patches over the last couple of seasons when in reality they should have done much better.
    I predict mid table for them next season. They have off the field issues and no CEO.

    Monk has quit Leeds, now that's hilarious!

    For what it's worth I've just put my lucky 15 on for next season Man Utd 7/2-Villa7/1-Blackburn 8/1 and Swindon 9/1. Mansfield are favourites for league 2 and Pompey for league 1

    Think Sunderland would do well to hire BD to keep them around the top of the table. The backs to the wall, siege mentality would do them well for a bit I think.

    I think Villa will get one of the automatic spots, Bruce knows how to get promoted from this league. Assuming Middlesbrough appoint someone somewhat competent, they will be my pick for the other automatic spot.

    Sunderland will have a season similar to the one Aston Villa have just had I reckon, and I can't see Hull doing much unless they have a change of ownership.

    Playoffs will be any four from Sheffield Wednesday, Fulham, Derby, Norwich, Leeds and Huddersfield/Reading.

    We'll finish somewhere between 10th to 15th, which will be a good season all things considered.

    Relegation to be any 3 from Ipswich, Burton, Bolton, Millwall and Barnsley.

    Big blow for Leeds, they were deluded enough to think Monk was one of them and would never leave. Looks like Karanka might go there.

    Karanka would be a good signing for Leeds. Did well at Boro before a lack of investment did for him.

    Can see Pearson heading back to Hull.

    There'll be a lot of pressure on Sunderland to replicate what Newcastle have done. Can't see it though, I think they'll do a Villa.
