Wolves and Cardiff with direct promotion. Derby - Fulham, Middlesbrough - Aston Villa in play-offs. Derby win first semi leg 1-0.

Relegated from the Premiership are Swansea, WBA and Stoke.
Fulham it is. They have impressed the past few months and were the better team vs Villa. Villa started with seven players over 30 years old, how many of them would have been good enough to play and keep them up in the Premiership? Derby has an exciting, young team and could do well back in the top flight.
I was too early with my Wolves promotion prediction for the past two or three seasons. But this time it's surely happening!
+1
15 matches to go and Wolves 13 pts ahead of second placed Derby.

Definitely happening for Wolves this season. They belong in the EPL.
Close race between Cardiff, Derby and Aston Villa for the second straight promotion place.
Unbelievably, with 10 matches to go Wolves only have a 3 point lead to Cardiff.
Having watched bits and pieces of Leeds United this season, incl the weekends 1-0 win against Derby, I can't help but think that they're strong contenders for promotion. Imagine that, as it's been 13 years since they were relegated from the Premier League.
+1
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.
20 matches played. Newcastle still on top, ahead of Brighton, Reading, Huddersfield, Leeds and Sheffield W, with Birmingham back in 7th and Norwich dropped to 8th.
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!!
+1
Burnley got six from their last two. Middlesbrough and Brighton got two each.
