The Football League Championship commenced its 12th season last weekend, with all the 24 clubs in action. The race to reach the Premier League began on an exciting note, and let us have a look at some of the matches. Get the latest English Championship betting odds & tips here.
What can we expect from the 2015-16 season? There will be drama, fights, victories, losses, heroes, villains but most of all exciting football once again. A quick preview should get us warmed up for the season.
It is gearing up to be another very exciting season as the series of summer transfers in various clubs raise expectations all around the league.
Players and managers have already gotten on the transfer roller-coaster with the most prominent being the appointment of Paul Clement (Carlo Ancelotti’s former Assistant) and the return of Darren Bent to Derby County. Meanwhile, the likes of Burnley, who have lost key players, will be looking to recruit effective replacements.
The new inclusions from the Premier League (Burnley, Hull City and QPR) may have a little financial advantage, but it will take more than just money to return to the EPL. Teams like Middlebrough, Brentford, Ipswich and Wolves will look to improve next season while they face stiff competition from Sheffield Wednesday, Blackburn, Birmingham and Cardiff City.
It will be interesting to see how teams like Preston North End, MK Dons and Bristol City hold up next season. Preston look like the best bet to survive and should be in the top half of the table at the end of the season. While clubs like Fulham, Bolton and Reading may follow the path set by Wigan Athletic into League One if they don’t improve.
The season may be over and attentions redirected towards the Copa America, but there is the usual summer buzz surrounding the transfers and preparations for the new season and that excitement will build up slowly until the 8th of August when the action begins. The Championship may be on a break, but the thrill and excitement continues..
