I think Leeds will stay up, if they come up. They're a very attractive option for a takeover or large investment.

Anyone but Leeds. Don’t care about the other divisions.

A couple of weeks ago the Leeds fans at work were banging on about 15,000 going to Ipswich without tickets today for the promotion. party. Reckon most will have changed their travel plans now.

As long as it's not Leeds don't mind regards the Championship - all of the Midlands clubs are good away days. Villa and West Brom in particular, in my experience, proper fans, proper clubs.

League One, Charlton are my favourite London club by a country mile, either them or Doncaster.

Mansfield.

Salford (Harrogate already eliminated I think)

As a former resident I'll go for Bradford PA in the North. In tribute to Dr Feelgood Concord Rangers in the South.

Anyone but Leeds then Charlton to beat Sunderland at Wembley.

Not too interested in other leagues, but I saw Fylde and Chorley mentioned so they would be nice.

In Championship, teams finishing 2nd-6th have 14 League Titles between them - all finishing below a team that have won the league cup twice, albeit that they have finished as high as third in PL era.

Really hoping Leeds do it. Went to ER a few weeks ago (4-0 v West Brom on a Friday night) and it was brilliant.
Electric atmosphere. Leeds v Villa final would be mega.

38 posts before someone hopes it’s leeds.

Anyone but for me thanks.

Two reasons.

1. They are classless

2. They will stay up and be stronger due to some classless muppets taking over.

Derby. Would like Fat Frank to get one over on Bielsa

Also Keogh defending in the PL would be good for laughs

I was hoping for Boro. Now I'd go either West Brom (preferred) or Villa.

I don't want Leeds for obvious reasons and I'd rather the pool of clubs with premier league resources stayed as small as possible so I don't want Derby adding to it.

Small irony this season is I look at the two promoted sides and I suspect I'm more immediately worried by whichever team comes up through the play offs in terms of them being a threat to Burnley

Do you really think that Derby County have Premier League resources?
