I am sceptical - I thought their defense looked shaky even before losing Jansson, afterwards it was really poor. So I would expect Leeds to yet again lose out on a promotion spot.I think Leeds are a good bet as long as they finish top 2. I don't like their chances of going up via the playoffs. If Swansea can rediscover themselves, i hold out some hope for them too.
In fairness they've lots the full backs from last season to premier league clubs, James Justin went to Leicester and Bournemouth signed the other one so that will impact aswell.Good game between Luton and Boro. Luton coming from League 2 to the Championship within two seasons isn't the only reason they'll ship goals this season, their manager is Roberto Martinez former assistant, Graeme Jones.
Well Deidhiou scored 13 last year and Weimann had brilliant end to the season, he tends to score in bunches. At back you signed Kalas full time didn't you and got likes of Baker and Bailly Wright. Think you've signed Jay Da Silva full time, he really impressed me from left back at Villa Park last season.Interesting to see a number of you pick Bristol City as dark horses. We've sold two defenders for nearly £35m and haven't really replaced them so the back line which served us so well won't be as robust this season.
Going forward we still need a goal scorer. There were pretty strong rumours we would get the Arsenal youngster Nekitah on loan but that hasn't materialised. Emery unsuprisingly wants to probably keep hold after his scoring exploits this pre season.
Keep an eye out for Brentford, it's about bloody time their good football translated in another play off crack.
As you say I think Boro fans will be delighted watching this sort of football after the stuff they had to endure under Pulis.Quite impressed with Boro considering they haven't really signed anyone, going to play with a lot more freedom under Woodgate.
Luton still playing on mental factor, they haven't lost at home in the league since March 2018. They'll stay up comfortably as have plenty of goals in their squad.
Another 90 minutes of beautiful chaos in the championship.
Answering my own question so nobody else does. The Championship transfer window closes at the same time as the Premier League one. Thursday at 5pm. League One and Two still open until Monday 2nd of September.Did the new, earlier transfer deadline in the PL become a thing in the Championship too or is it still the end of the month?
