So the new season is already underway.
Started off at Stadium of Light with a minute's applause for young Bradley - then Sunderland, seemingly buoyed, started really well for 10 mins. Crowd were really up for it. Then in 11th minute Derby had their first attack and scored! Not much changes for the Mackem does it!!
Anyway - anyone have any opinions on this league? On paper it could be even more competitive than ever.
Sunderland, Hull and Boro who all came down last season have big finances to get back up again.
Add in the likes of both Villa, Sheffield clubs, Reading, Norwich, Leeds, Fulham, Derby, Forest plus big-spending Wolves and 'Arrys Birmingham - there could be up to 15 clubs who would fancy their chances of at least making the play-offs!
A poll to get us started - who will win the Championship?
