Norwich

Yet again have scored two late goals to turn it around tonight. This will be their 9th straight win and look certain for promotion. Just hope Sheffield United and not Leeds join them!

Probably go right down to the wire between Leeds and Blades.
Norwich good for an away weekend, nice city with quite a few decent pubs.

Yep, just hope we’re in the same division next year - it’ll be my local match (till I move again).

Yet again Leeds have scores go their way.

Championship is weaker this season vs last. No team has enough consistency.

Next season Norwich will stay up. Leeds or Sheff U, or maybe both, assuming they both come up, will go down.

Leeds will almost certainly stay up. A one city club - will get huge investment and spend a pretty penny during the summer.

Spend a pretty penny, eh? Like Fulham?

One City Club? Like Middlesbrough?

I'm hoping that Bristol City claim the 3rd promotion place, with Norwich, clearly worthy Champions, and Sheffield Utd in 2nd spot. From a selfish/arrogant point of view, it could offer some security for us if next season mirrors this one.

Fingers crossed for Norwich, Sheff Utd and Villa (I have backed them to be promoted) all to go up.

Villa have won 6 on the spin and are now 5th. That’s the sort of form that usually sees a team win the play offs.

If they maintain it, of course.

Leeds play Wednesday on Saturday. Blades fans will want a Wednesday win.

I work in an office with 4 Leeds fans and 1 Sheffield Utd fan. It’s getting very entertaining and I can enjoy it more now we’re virtually safe.

Couldn’t have been much later. Not sure why they bother with the first 85 mins at Norwich. Most of the goals go in after that.

I think Leeds have the best chance of staying up. They have just enough money to bolster the squad, without ripping it apart. I also think Bielsa is a good coach. It would be better for all if they get beat in the play offs.
Looking at the Chsmpionship, it's as exciting as ever, but I do think the gap is still a huge one. Whoever comes up will find it tough.
I'm amazed at how difficult Stoke, West Brom and Swansra have found it this season. Maybe too much **** going on behind the scenes, but if we were to go down, I would hope we had enough nous, experience and fight to bounce back.

Norwich have already conceded 50 goals - we conceded 35 when we won it. My money wont be on Norwich staying up

They’re the sort of side I’d want promoted if we’re still in the Prem next year.

Lack outstanding individuals and serious financial clout - ideal opponents. I’d also want Sheffield United and possibly Bristol City for the same reasons. Not Villa or West Brom.

Spot on. We need relatively poor clubs whose squads are already punching above their weight.

Brizzle would be ideal for promotion.

Almost racing certainties for the drop and a good city for a p1ss up. :mrgreen:

They have some excellent players with bright futures. Max Aarons, Jamal Lewis and Ben Godfrey are all regulars at a young age. Buendia and Leitner are Premier League class and Pukki is banging them in. The reason they concede goals in the way they play. If they don’t tighten up they could be in trouble next season.

Don’t think their style of play is sustainable for this level at all. Also think Pukki for example is playing at the very limit of his ability. There are many areas they need to invest properly in during summer but not sure they have the finances to actually do it.

Used to know someone who lived there and it is a very nice place to go. One of this nations more lovely cities. I quite like them as a club as well Possibly because of the strip - my two favourite colours are yellow and green. :lol:
