Well it is the Champo. Anyone can go from near relegation to promotion from one season to the next or even within a season. You're chances are just as good as, barring those on parachute payments.
Absolutely, definitely one of the fun things about the league is things can change quickly. The finances aren't great due to mismanagement in the past and Covid, but I'm hoping Swansea can hold on to most of the big talents and only sell one or two (Piroe being the most likely, and while I'll be sad to see him go he'll probably bring the most money in and looks dead set to leave). Martin has likened managing Swansea to pushing a big rock up a hill, and Potter and Cooper have mentioned similar things in the past. Still many clubs in the league are in similar positions and hopefully the summer will be a productive one.

Piroe and Obafemi seemed a good partnership up front. Was Obafemi only on loan and if he was are you confident of getting him back?

Quite a few teams in the Championship should have a hard look at themselves. QPR, West Brom, Blackburn on paper should have been atleast in the playoffs looking at the start likes of Forest and Sheffield United had. This will be a massive missed opportunity in what was quite a weak field this time around.

Norwich, Watford and Leeds are going down, atleast two of them are massive yo-yo teams and Leeds have too good a squad for this level. Cant see it being any easier next year

Don't know if this is right thread but watching league One playoff

Andy hinchcliffe is commentator
He's horrible, everything is negative and what a player should have done instead. Everything

Do they have VAR in the play-offs? I think Sheffield should have had a pen just before the goal.

Game has completely passed Garner by so far, not sure he's even touched the ball

Quality of this game has been awful, Forest should have had at least 4 Sheffield Uniteds defending has been that bad

Only been watching for 20m or so but Forest should be five up. It's so one-sided it surely can't continue like this. Wonder if Forest will regret not capitalising.

Completely turned around now - Sheffield U really been impressive in the second half. Sander Berge is too good for this level

Hopefully forest make it. More of a club than some of the plastics.

San Antonio, Texas.
Bournemouth, West Brom, Sheffield United, Norwich. And then the prospect of Luton and Huddersfield. Oh god. Such middling pedrigree teams.

Finally can we have Nottingham Forest back in the top division again?

Forest looking sharp on the break.

They defend so well as well.
