  1. What a weird list. Portsmouth get bumped up 2 leagues but no Southampton. Brighton, Palace, Watford and Norwich fans would also be pretty unimpressed.
  2. I would say it looks quite a bit better for Rotherham. Home games against Cov and Brum on Thu and Sat. their last 5 games look much harder though and have 4 away
  3. We need 9 points to be mathematically safe as Derby can get to a max of 58 and Rotherham still have 9 games left (and Cov 6) Realistically I would say we are already safe but a win on Sat would all but confirm. I think the current bottom 3 will drop with 45 points or fewer
  4. I would be betting on Brum to drop at this stage. While Rotherham have a huge fixture pile up, they have a favourable run in early April - Wycombe H, Hudds A, QPR H, Brum H. If Rotherham can get enough points from those that should see them most of the way to safety. They also have a big goal difference advantage (12 better than Brum) so can afford to play a weakened team once or twice in less favourable fixtures.
  5. For me it has to be the maximum possible clear out. One thing I haven't seen mentioned is the impact of COVID on wages. According to this article, the average Championship footballers wage has increased from 3k a week in 2006 to 29k week now. So bang average footballers in this league get 1.5 million a year! https://www.888sport.com/blog/football/championship/how-much-do-championship-football-players-get-paid COVID should be a massive wake up call for everyone in the pyramid except maybe the top 6. I would expect many clubs to have lots of players out of contract thi
  6. The playoffs were never realistic. People forget we have a -10 goal difference! If we could get 20 points from our remaining 12 games that would take us to 65 and likely be good enough for around 10th place. Another top half finish and permanently getting Pearson would allow us to recruit strongly in the summer.
  7. I WOULD love this, if we hadn’t already had massive issues with COVID.
  8. I don't think we will go down. If we fall to 17th or lower then Holden will get the boot and a new manager will get us enough to get over the line.
  9. Yes, that should happen. The problem is how to make up the postponed games. What should happen is that some of the season is outright cancelled (say the FA cup) but no-one wants to take the financial hit. If the league is shortened then the EFL have to give money back to Sky, if the FA Cup is cancelled the FA have to give money back. If the Euros are cancelled then UEFA have to give money back. If the Euros are fixed at 11th June-11th July 2021 (I would assume they can't be moved again as 2022 is World Cup year and 2023 is too close to the next Euros in 2024) then any prolonged po
  10. You have to say its looking pretty bad for them already - 5 points adrift - Haven't won for 10 games - Sacked the manager and hasn't helped much Rooney or not, they will struggle to get anyone good in the window if they already look doomed. As Sunderland and Ipswich prove no-one is too big to go down. No-one will be shedding any tears after the stadium "sale". Would be amusing if Forest, Derby and Wednesday were all in L1 next season.
  11. I don’t think the 2 Nottingham clubs have been rivals for a very long time. Forest’s rivals are Derby, County’s are Mansfield.
  12. No Leeds, No Villa, No Newcastle. Who are Sky now going to put on every single week in the Championship? Forest? Frank Lampardless Derby County?
  13. Nonsense. Getting us promoted should be a piece of cake!
  14. If Terry got it, be prepared to be known as John Terry's Bristol City...
