@JacobRaw_MFC: No derby 😍😍

@TeamAndrew: Difficult to pick three clear for promotion, reckon there could be a surprise or two in the playoffs.

@KLPera: turks to piss it, will be an amazing season either way #hcafc

@1Graveseh: Middlesborough to win the league. Norwich to get automatic

@s_threlfall4: Vintage championship this. Npower vibes

@depeterson61: come on you canaries

Absofruitly impossible to predict anything from that, aside from the bottom 3 (Wigan, Rotherham and Luton for anyone wondering)

@1871_GS: If any league was impossible to predict its this one

@Evans19Tom: The most Championship looking Championship ever

@OllieWales: Proper league. Roll on next season.

@Treyvon__75: Gonna be a damn GOOD season!

@JoshRFC_: Proper coca cola championship that

@daversaurus: 5 Yorkshire clubs and 5 Lancashire clubs. This season could be the least miles we’ve ever had to travel!

@joewilkinson_: Best Championship league in a long time that buzzin for it

@YCCC33: And no Brighton, Bournemouth and Southampton, and only 3 London clubs (plus Watford just outside London). The killer for you lot could be the schleps to Wales!

Norwich & Watford to go up
Bournemouth & Fulham to go down
Bournemouth & Fulham to go up
Norwich & Watford to go down
And repeat

@ConorDots: Congrats to Watford, Norwich and Burnley on their promotions to the premier league

@danricho90: Wide open … boro wba Watford to go up …. Sunderland Rotherham Preston to go down

@Dr3wster__: Hahaha we’re actually fucked #BCFC

@BenRFC0: Not sure I’d be placing Reading above Sunderland with our troubles at the moment 😂

@nathphilk: This is the hardest the championship has been for years, we’ll be lucky to better this season another 14, 15, 16th season inbound

@willrussell100: That is grim

@redligbaz: Try getting out of that division 🙈😳

@TheWatfordTy: If we recruit even half decently there’s no reason why we shouldn’t walk this league, but knowing Gino and Co we’ll sign 10 players on a free, end up in 4th and bottle the play off final

@adz0411: Best championship lineup in years 💯🔥

Autos – Middlesbrough, Sheffield Utd
Play-offs – West Brom, Norwich, Watford, Hull 😉
Relegation – Reading, Rotherham, Birmingham

@SAFCTylerr: stinks of back to back promotions. so glad we’re out of that miserable league

@Raouf_B9: Aside from Norwich I get the feeling that the premier league clubs coming down aren’t going to find it easy.

@_alexsmith1999: There’s not a stand out team amongst that 24, absolutely nothing to be afraid of if we are serious about pushing on as a club next season

@JackRourke15: Some serious aways there, bank accounts not gonna know what’s hit it

@Darren75359157: Pissing The league again NCFC 🟢🟡

@mannisxngh: With the way things are going with nothing happening. I’d say we’re going down (shouldn’t be the case) #bcfc

@PR4PNE: Once again, exactly like last season, really poor standard of league, if we get our recruitment right this summer we could be right amongst it #pnefc

@Joerudd_39: No reason we can’t challenge next season, let’s show some ambition and try and keep this squad together and go again #htafc

@NicktheHornet: Only 5 clubs in there not to have played in the PL. Should be a cracker!

@Joegouldd: Worst squad in the league, no gaffer and Les still has a job. We might go down #qpr

@luke_bcfc29: I’m mentally ready for relegation already 😂😂 #bcfc

@MiserableMackem: So happy to see #SAFC alongside the likes of Watford and Norwich and not village teams like Forest bastard Green.

@aaron_bennis10: The 2022/23 Championship season should hopefully be the most competitive in years. I don’t see any standout teams unlike in recent years. Mon the Coca Cola

@CurtisSCFC: Looking at some of the teams here it just makes the inevitable 13th place finish even worse

@_AjmWilliams: A LOT of teams will fancy themselves there next season for top 6… first time I’ve seen a championship without a PL level team (depending on who the relegated 3 lose)
