We usually have a thread every season where we talk about other teams in the division and the league news as it unfolds over the course of the season. I haven't seen a thread up this year about the nPower Championship so I thought I would start one considering that the season is about to start.

So to start the topic off:

Who are your tips for Promotion? Which teams do you see battling for survival?

Well the lot from down the road seem to think thry have strengthened in the right areas defence midfield, although they have lost their main strikers. Expect a lot of low scoring games and draws. 18th

Think Leeds, Leicester will be automatic spots with the usual contenders for playoffs.

Think it could go either way for Bolton. Good start maybe play offs or bad start mid bottom half.

I wouldnt want to predict our fortunes and I am going to say no more on that for the threads sake.

Good shouts. I think Bolton will definitely go up, Coyle has the experience of getting a side promoted from this division. Wolves should be a force though Solbakken has changed a lot at the club since he has come in, just wondering how they will react to change? If they lose Fletcher that will be a big blow as well. I think Blackpool have a good chance of automatic promotion as well.

It's such a competitive league, you could easily see around 10 teams fighting for promotion.

Bolton & Wolves for the top 2 places. This league is very difficult to get out of, we will see alot of teams pushing for those playoff places.

Teams in the promotion race: Wolves, Bolton, Blackpool,Leeds and keep an eye on Leicester and Nots Forest.
Outside of that there is always some surprises especially the newly promoted teams.

Cardiff and Bolton top 2.

Play offs Blackpool, Leeds, Birmingham and Wolves.

Rovers to have a real struggle with KEANSCUM OUT in charge. I dont envisage a better place than 9th for us UNLESS he is removed.
.....Sure as I am this day we are the masters of our own fate that the task which has been set before us is not above our strength; that its pangs and toils are not beyond our endurance. As long as we have faith in our cause and an unconquerable will to win, victory will not be denied us.....

Was surprised to see the London papers tipping Charlton for promotion.

Nobody mentioning Watford?

Zola as manager and 7 new signings- they could walk it if they get their act together.

At present I see us 8th-15th but if Kean goes early I think we will get a play off place
Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.

We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we're curious.....And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Keep you eye out for Wednesday. Need to buy a few more players but michail antonio, bought from reading, is a quality player in the making. As a Wednesday fan I think we will come mid table. Cardiff and wolves for auto, Bolton and Leicester play offs.
Not sure about rovers, could go either way, you have the big names but do you have the morale/fight to get going following last season. Time will tell. Cant see u below the top 10 but you need a good start away at Ipswich.
Good luck!

Keep an eye on Forest. they have bought well and have a decent manager in place.

I actually think we might have a good go at it. We should really have one of the strongest squads in the league and surely even Kean can't cock it up that badly..... oh wait...... scrub that. mid table at best for us then :(

Come on guys, those saying we will finish near the bottom etc are being slightly over dramatic. We certainly won't go up IMO with Kean in charge but even that numpty couldn't fail to get us in the top half with our squad. Robbo, Givet, Etuhu and Murphy are probably the best players in their positions in the division.

Wolves have a lot of unrest at the moment - Jarvis and Fletcher, their two best players will leave before the window is out so I can see Bolton, Cardiff and hopefully us going up. Kean going permitting of course.
The championship is a marathon, not a sprint.

I think most feel we will be in the botttom half, but prob not in the bottom 4/5. At least not all of the season.

Of course, I don't doubt that. I'm just saying we won't struggle at the lower end of the table even with Kean in charge.

It's only our manager who is stopping us from walking the league with Bolton IMO.
