genome Who do you predict/want to see go up/down?

Championship: Boro, Burnley, Sheff Wed - not gonna bother with relegation as that looks a done deal
League One: Burton and Bradford would be good to see come up. would rather not have Wigan, but looks likely. Colchester as good as down and would be interesting* to see Donny and Blackpool in League Two
League Two: Anyone as long as it's not Pompey


Championship : Boro - Burnley - Sheffield Wednesday

League 1 - (Think Wigan are certain to come up but would rather) Burton - Walsall - Gillingham

League 2 - Northampton - Accrington - Bristol Rovers - Plymouth (Oxford lose at Wembley and we take Roofe on the cheap)

Only going to do the ones that affect where I will be heading next season but:

Prem down - Sunderland and Norwich to join Villa I would like (never been to Sunderland and Norwich is a good day out and closer than Newcastle)
Champ up - let's get rid of Boro, Burnley and Hull
Champ down - all but decided but hopefully MK Dons don't surprise anyone
League 1 up - I'd like Burton, Walsall and Gillingham, but since Wigan look up I want Burton and then I don't really mind between Walsall and Gillingham

If you're traveling 4 hours anyway, you might as well travel 5 and go to Newcastle

Yeah Newcastle is pretty easy on a Saturday, direct train at just before 9am gets you in with plenty of time before kick off

TBM Charlton & MK Dons back in league one


Gutted about Charlton going down - love the Valley.

+1 great club and away day Charlton. Hopefully Millwall/Gillingham can get through playoffs. Looking forward to Villa and hopefully N'castle.
Want to get rid of Boror, Hull, Burnley tbh

TBM Charlton & MK Dons back in league one


For all the talk of the Championship being the most unpredictable league, this year is pretty much sewn up already.

Relegation settled, Play-offs virtually settled. The only thing open to debate is the order the top 3 finish in.


Would love it for Brighton to go up.

The premier league has enough big clubs as it is, give one of the smaller teams a chance like Leeds, Boro, Sheffield Wednesday.

Love how tight the Championship is 2 games before the end.

Burnley 87pts +33 GD
Middlesbrough 87pts +32 GD
Brighton 87pts +30 GD

Reckon Burnley are will nick the title because Boro and Brighton play each other and as a result they can't both get 6 points, and Burnley host nothing to play for QPR and go to already relegated Charlton and should really win both.

I love a good grudge match though, will be tuning in with interest, as long as Boro thump Brighton 5-0 and they go on to lose the play off final in spectacular fashion against Sheffield Wednesday and we see them cry on the telly.

Oxford also doing their best to bottle promotion. Need to win their final 2 games realistically to go up automatically as Bristol Rovers who are 1 point behind them have the bottom 2 teams for their final 2 games.

They stay down and we then nab Roofe on the cheap would be nice.

Boro go to Birmingham and Brighton host Derby first, neither game will be easy - so Burnley could well be promoted this weekend

Walsall win their game in hand last night and are now 3 points off being on the same points as Burton in 2nd place.

Burton play at home to Gillingham on saturday who are 7th, 1 point outside the play offs. Walsall are home to 20th placed Fleetwood who need 1 win from the last 2to stay up.

After that Burton are away to Doncaster who depending on this weekends results will either be relegated or desperately needing a win to stay up. Walsall go away to nothing to play for midtable Port Vale

Burton have won 4 of the last 14 league games. the 2nd half of their season has been pretty bad. Can see Walsall stealing 2nd spot

If Newcastle go down I will be pleased, I loved my away day there a few seasons back. Will definitely be in for a couple of days up there.
