I would like Leeds as I think they will run away with the Championship next season if they don't get promoted.

Villa V Leeds Final.

I think Villa could do the same if they don't go up this year. There's always the possibility that Leeds could implode over the summer which would negate their threat next season. Derby will pose a similar threat next season but without Stef Jo and Dwight Gayle (hopefully both playing for us) West Brom could struggle.

None of the teams to go up will do anything but struggle. None of them can compare with Wolves.

Leeds would be good to see at the top flight after many years of absence.  They would struggle as they did this year and one believes Fulham, if we keep our main players and get a good replacement 'keeper (Joe Hart) will run away with the Championship.

Tell you what, I miss the excitement of last season's involvement. The 2nd leg and the grand day out....if not the champions I think it the most exciting way to get promoted.   :54:
Mind you painful and more if you miss out!  :016:

Don't fancy being a baggies fan today. Worse way of going out possible.

Yep get shot of Leeds, can do without them in the Champ as Rivals. Villa will lose more players and the likes of Grealish will be gone as will the loan players and Villa will sink further financially surely. Derby! Who cares!

Watching Leeds and Derby I think we will do well to even make the play offs next year. The pace, strength and skill on show is way above much of what we have displayed this season. I think we are being hopelessly optimistic to think we will be promoted automatically or via the playoffs

Since there is no way for both to lose, apparently, Leeds would be far more interesting to me. Really just can't stand Villa, would love for anyone to stick it to Terry and would like to see what a resurgent Leeds could do in the top flight once again.

Would have preferred WBA.
Just Derby over Villa.

At the moment we are currently pussy cats compared to these teams, Scott Parker has a massive challenge next season, and will he get the right support and backing from the owner that he needs, or will someone else rain on his parade.

Speaking of pace, Cameron Jerome (played up top for Derby in the playoff round last year) might be a good replacement for AK47. He's 31...but he's strong and faster than any of our current starting 11. He knows the Championship and would be a good change of pace from Mitro.


I also didn't see much tonight that says Derby is noticeably better than they were a year ago. I do like their loan player though...Mount #8.

Well, with the defending displayed I am not too worried. Entertaining game, but such an incredible amount of mistakes from both sides. Not very impressive in my book. I think however that in any case next year will be tough, and a key part to success next season is to get our players to really have the right mindset from the start.
