    Thought I would make a thread about all things about the English second tier. Really good league and I think this is going to be a brilliant year. Probably the most unpredictable in Europe. It is also a league where we should looking for players in. Good win for Blackpool tonight against Hull but I still think they will struggle this year. Anyway, my predictions:

    Promoted:Leicester, West Ham and Brighton through playoff

    Relegated:peterborough, Watford and Barnsley

    Dunno about that. That has been said about a lot of PL clubs coming down and they really struggled. Middlesborough were strongly favoured to come back up again straight away but they were almost relegated. But Sam Allardyce is a class manager who should be able to get them the results

    Leicester would be my shout for champions, West Ham second and Birmingham up through the play-offs.

    Really worried about Blackpool tbh. Good win tonight but Holloway seems really * off with modern football the last few days. Think he will resign sooner rather than later and still a lot of talk of more of their players leaving. Hope I am proved wrong though. Really like the club even if Barry bawbag is playing for them

    West Ham should go up imo, good team with a better manager than last year:56:

    Also Leicester, if they don't go up, bye bye Sven. They've spent a fortune on players!

    Brighton 2-1 Doncaster
    Bristol City 0-3 Ipswich
    Burnley 2-2 Watford
    Coventry 0-1 Leicester
    Derby 2-1 Birmingham
    Middlesbrough 2-2 Portsmouth
    Nott'm Forest 0-0 Barnsley
    Peterborough 2-1 Crystal Palace
    Reading 2-2 Millwall
    Southampton 3-1 Leeds

    Good first win for Brighton. Poyet really has them playing lovely football and I fancy them to go up through the playoffs. Very good result for Southampton also and Ipswich could be dangerous as well
