Achieved promotion in December I had some fun reading the Wednesday messageboard today.
Derby win and go 2nd. Leeds lose against the struggling Birmingham, instead. Aston Villa beat Middlesbrough and are level on points with Sheffield United, as the Blades lose against Bolton. Brentford doing really well atm. 2-0 FT against Sheffield Wednesday. Great win for Sunderland against Nottingham. Barnsley-Reading 1-1, Burton-Norwich City 0-0 and Hull-Fulham 2-2.
Wolverhampton win and are 11 points above the 3rd spot now.
Great victory for Wolves, only a massive fall will prevent them from automatic promotion, happy for Nuno he deserves after last season at Porto where as usual in Portugal if you don't win you are seen as a looser.
And win on his debut against another portuguese manager

25 league games, 10 wins, 1 draw and 14 defeats.
The job may be more attractive for potential managers, as Forest is no longer owned by Fawaz Al Hasawi

Give it to Giggseh.
Joking aside, should be a good job for a young progressive manager who wants to play expansive, attacking football.
Third defeat in a row for Cardiff and big crisis going on. Derby didn’t take advantage of it, as they drew against Sheffield United. Comeback for Pulis, with his 2nd win in 3 games as Middlesbrough manager. Norwich, Barnsley and Burton win as well. Leeds-Nottingham 0-0. Aston Villa thrash Bristol City 5-0. The Robins not doing well in the last 2 games.
Fulham - Ipswich, Wolves - Brentford and Reading - Birmingham today.
Any idea whats happened to Patrick Bamford? An extremely talented player who I've rated highly for years - but doesn't seem to be scoring much anymore? Anyone watched him play this season?
Middlesboro fan who's friend of ours says he's looked useless. Hasn't cut it anywhere he's been and has returned to 'Boro..still looks poor
Hopefully this means the wheels have finally come off for Cardiff and Colin.
For me, Wolves are already promoted.
Brentford finally living up to the praise I gave them at the start of the season and making a push for the playoff spots. Until recently, they had dropped more points from winning positions than any other team in the football league. They might still hold that record.
It would take a monumental feck up for them to throw it away.
Errrrr Tony Pulis is Middlesbrough manager?? How did I miss that?!
Wolves flying in the Championship, won 3:0 vs Brentford, one of the teams who plays good football in the Championship.
I don't like to overhype teams, but after watching Swansea vs Spurs is fair to say Wolves plays better football than Swansea, West Brom, West Ham and some teams in the Premier League.
Lets see how they will invest with Fosun next season when they get promotion.
Nuno did well with Valencia. He is a good manager if you put him in a good club.
Wolves will comfortably stay up I reckon. Already got Premier League standard players in their team and sure they'll attract more in the summer.
Last season they came up under Mick they were only interested in aiming for 17th. This team they have potential to establish themselves in the Premier League like Watford and Bournemouth have done.
If they don't mess around with a lot of new players coming in next season and keep the best they have, they will make a good season imo.
Forest appoint Karanka. Great move for them, still making the right moves post Fawaz mess.
The Steel Derby ends 0-0. Sheffield Wednesday are having a really poor season. Guess it's only about staying up now.
I'm probably the only person bored enough to be watching Cardiff v Sunderland.
3-0 to Cardiff with 10 minutes to go and Sunderland down to 10 men.
Sunderland....what a fecking joke they are.
No. You are not on your own. Sunderland survived the first half, but then have imploded in the 2nd. Not sure what any manager can do with this team. No matter how many times they change the manager nothing is altering.
They look like a completely demoralised team. I can't see how Chris Coleman is going to be able to turn it around without massive investment.
But then again, who'd splash the cash with relegation looming?
Think they need a new owner and just start from scratch.
What happened to Sunderland? Bottom of the Championship.
And what the feck happened to Rodwell. Still at Sunderland. Isnt getting games. Still just 26.. What a waste of a career.
Christ! Sunderland are a complete mess. They run the risk of getting relegated again as the bottom team!
I see Fulham are on their way up. Hopefully they can make the playoffs again. I have always had a soft spot for them since i was at their stadium.
Maybe he just wasn't very good.
Wolverhampton get beaten at home by Nottingham. Massive shock! Villa win and go 3 points behind the 2nd spot, instead. Brentford, Sheffield United, Fulham and Middlesbrough win as well, while crazy game in Leeds. Leeds were 2-0 and 1 man down, then they go 3-2 up, but they lost 4-3 in the end. Massive win for Sunderland against Hull. Preston-Birmingham 1-1, Bolton-Ipswich 1-1 and Bolton-Ipswich 1-1.
Sheffield Wednesday-Cardiff now.
Looks like League One football could occupy every other Saturday for me from next season...
Yep. I didn't expect that result. They were due a bad result. You can't be lucky everytime. It can be positive for them though since Nuno has been asking for more reinforcements. Maybe Fosun will give him a couple of signings.
Bristol, Wolverhampton, Fulham and Norwich win. Big win for Birmingham in their fight to avoid relegation as well, while Sunderland have gone shit since they got relegated from the Premier League. Villa beat Sheffield United in the playoffs "six-pointer". Reading and Preston also win, while all the others draw.
See you soon guys.
Wolves are the City of the Championship and are more or less already up next season. Can see Villa grabbing the second spot, but the third promotion spot is anyone’s guess.
Bolton beat Bristol 1-0. Only 4 points for City in the last 6 games. They have gone off the boil.
Easy wins for Aston Villa, Derby and Cardiff City. It's gonna be a great battle for the 2nd spot. Fulham up to 5th. Preston stay in the playoffs zone thanks to the 2-1 win against a sorry Hull side, as they risk a second relegation in a row. The same thing goes for Sunderland, defeated 2-0 at home by Ipswich. Sheffield Wednesday and Reading risk as well. Norwich-Middlesbrough 1-0 and Q.P.R.-Barnsley 1-0.
Wolverhampton-Sheffield United now. 2-0 Wolverhampton at HT.
3-0 FT for Wolverhampton. They are too good for the Championship.
Championship too easy for them.
He has to stay there with Jota under NES, these 2 have real potential to thrive in our NT after the WC.

Leeds looking for their seventh manager since May 2014. They have been on a bad run, knocked out of the FA Cup by Newport, and are currently 10th
