16 matches played, 30 to go. At this stage we have Newcastle in the lead, ahead of Brighton, Huddersfield, Reading, Norwich and Leeds, with Birmingham in 7th.
Newcastle finally coming to form...should be a good year
Newcastle look like they mean business. They hammered QPR away while Huddersfield got their first defeat.
Newcastle could win this league comfortably like in 2009/10 they have a strong squad
or not by the looks of it :P
Any predictions on how this season is going to finish?

My Predictions: Promotion: 1st - QPR
2nd - Newcastle
3rd- Sheffield Wednesday (winning the playoff final
against Villa)

Relegation: Preston, Barnsley and Leeds
I think I was a year too early predicting Wolves would win promotion. So this season I think it will happen. Fulham look bright and maybe Brighton will be up there again, with Newcastle, Forest, QPR, Villa, Norwich and Ipswich.
Wolves still look strangely off the mark. And Derby have dropped in quality since last year.
This looks to be another thrilling Championship season.
1 Burnley 93 pts
2 Middlesbrough 89
3 Brighton 89
4 Hull 83
5 Derby 78
6 Sheffield W 74
followed by Ipswich, Cardiff, Brentford, Birmingham, Preston, QPR, Leeds and Wolves...

Burnley and Middlesbrough directly promoted. Brighton missed out by a 2 goals difference, having scored more than Boro but also conceded many more.

On to the play-offs: Brighton - Sheffield W, Hull - Derby.
Final: Hull-Wednesday
Final winners: Hull
2 games left and three teams fighting for the top 2 spots. Burnley, Boro and Brighton all on 87 points. How tight is that!!

And it looks like it's going to be those six teams. Cardiff in 7th are 5 pts behind Sheffield Wed with six games to go. The current top 6 also have considerably better goal differences.
With two games left Cardiff are 4 pts behind Sheffield Wednesday, and in the penultimate game they meet each other.
As always, the Championship turns out a hell of a battle both for top 2 and top 6. Interesting to see how Sheffield Wednesday mean business, currently in the top 6 with a pack of Ipswich, Birmingham, Cardiff, Forest and Wolves in the chase just below them.
Sheffield Wednesday were one of the founding members of the Premier League in the 1992/93 season but haven't been in it since they were relegated after the 1999/2000 season.
