Our Predictions for the season for the Championship 2020/2021

First of all how well did we do?

See below our predictions for how the season 2019/2020 would end....

Our prediction that we made July 2019 first followed by the actual position at the end.

1st Fulham 4th but did manage promotion
2nd West Brom 2nd
3rd Bristol City 12th! awful after lockdown and sacked the manager
4th Leeds 1st great after lockdown and deserved winners
5th Stoke 15th - we were way off.  Change of manager
6th Sheff Wed 16th change of manager before the season started
7th Swansea 6th, sneaked into the playoffs on the final day
8th Cardiff 5th sneaked the playoffs after lock down
9th Brentford 3rd, should have gone up automatically
10th Middlesbrough 17th, late rush for survival!
11th Derby  10th
12th Huddersfield  18th, close to slipping out 
13th Luton  19th.  Last day survival
14th Preston  9th
15th Reading  14th
16th Millwall  8th
17th Notts Forest  7th, messed up post lockdown.  Were a certain playoff
18th Blackburn  11th
19th Wigan  23rd...points deduction saw them down
20th Charlton  22nd almost safe....
21st Barnsley  21st survived on the last day
22nd Hull  24th
23rd Birmingham  20th
24th QPR  13th

We got West Brom right and Fulham did manage promotion so pretty good.  The Championship is always a tough league to predict and 2020/21 is going to be no different.

Check out our predictions for the upcoming season.

1st Swansea They looked good last season and have made some good signings.  This is a very open league this year and we fancy them to top it!
2nd Brentford A good team...lost a few but also brought in a few...promotion this time.
3rd Preston Great set up, good manager and in this open league we think they will make the top three.
4th Norwich City Not enough to bounce straight back but enough for the playoffs 
5th Stoke We think with a full season under his belt this is the time for Stoke to show their undoubted class.
6th Derby County Just could sneak the playoffs.
7th Nottm Forest We think they will miss out again.
8th Cardiff City For us not quite good enough for a top six finish.
9th Bournemouth It is going to be a long season for newly relegated Bournemouth.
10th Middlesbrough Neil Warnock may be long in the tooth...very long but has enough to keep Middlesbrough going.
11th Watford We think Championship football will be a shock to newly relegated Watford. 
12th Huddersfield  Mid table all the way.
13th Luton Town They have the right man in charge to keep them safe.
14th Bristol City It is going to be a long season for Bristol.  Some poor decisions from the top will cost them this season.
15th Reading  Another season of disappointment for Reading.
16th Millwall  Good, well managed club and team but too much competition for them.
17th QPR For us they will be lucky to survive.
18th Blackburn  An old fashioned manager will struggle in this league.
19th Rotherham Just enough for them to stay up.
20th Coventry  They had a great season.  Who knows if they would have made it if the season had not been stopped early.  Good manager, no finances.  Will survive...just.
21st Wycombe We hope they will be the team to surprise.  Early season form will keep them up.
22nd Barnsley  Last year saved by Wigan points deduction.  Not this time around.
23rd Birmingham  Third season struggling.  This time they go down!
24th Sheff Wed Starting the season -12 pts it is hard to see them surviving.
