    In the absence of Sealion thought I'd start this season's thread.

    I was feeling slightly less pessimistic about Wednesday's chances given our upturn in form since Steve Bruce took over - and right on cue he appears to have walked out to take the Newcastle job.

    Would have thought Leeds are among the favourites, and be interesting to see how West Brom get on under Bilic.

    I've just looked up the odds, and as it stands, with the transfer window open for a while yet, Leeds are favourites for promotion, marginally ahead of Fulham.

    As usual, my club, Birmingham City are in utter turmoil, sacking gary monk and selling our only two decent players lol! Think this might be the season we finally go down. Ah well, same as it ever was!

    Nice one technical , I like keeping an eye on the Championship. Theres some great sides in there with great support and history.

    Seems like Steve Bruce never really wanted to be at Wednesday, took him ages to actually start with his holiday getting in the way and now he cant wait to get out. At least he stopped the rot though.

    Agree with you on that Lorca , Blues are going to struggle after losing Monk and the main strikers. Baggies are getting short up front too after the departure of last seasons main scorers. The Hawthorns faithful are praying that Bilic doesnt bring his old chum Andy Carroll in.

    Gonna be a great season again and Leeds keeping their manager makes them favourites for me.

    Reading 3-1.

    For relegation.

    Christ, not even worth putting a consolation fiver on it at those odds.

    I'm a Fulham fan and am delighted to be back in the Championship.

    Ideally I'd love to see us win it and not get promoted. Fuck the premiership!

    We've managed to get Tom Cairney and Aleksandar Mitrović to sign new contracts. This is HUGE for us. Probably our best two players when we were promoted via the play offs two seasons ago. We still have a lot of the players from that side actually.

    The bookies currently have Leeds as favorites to win the league and then Fulham and Cardiff. But one of the beauties of the division is its very unpredictable.

    Anyway...good luck to you all apart from when you play us.

    As a London based wednesdayite I’m chuffed that both Fulham and charlton are back in the championship

    Slightly surprised Fulham are among the favourites. - I know they’ve got premiership cash to spend but the manager is untested

    Read somewhere that it breaks the rules, and they won't be allowed to wear it in league games. In the meantime, of course, a betting company has got a shed load of free advertising.

    Paddy Power all over with their shit publicity campaigns. Still embarrasing for a club like Huddersfield with a proud tradition to be dragged into this. Modern football eh.

    They've made a very big fuss about removing the logo as a way of "giving the shirt back to the fans".

    So it will be logo free for the season.

    Was it a publicity stunt in itself?

    Paddy Power 'logo' getting good coverage all over the networks, even the BBC.

    So we’re underway tonight with Luton v Middlesbrough

    I’ll go with a 1-1 draw. Think Boro may struggle a bit this season

    I got the right result if not the score. And sounds like Boro may be a bit more entertaining than under pulis
