Predicted League Table: Championship 2010/11

With the new season beginning this weekend, the lads - in a desperate attempt to show they know what they're talking about - have once again attempted to predict what each division will look like come May.

After mixed fortunes last season, they've gone back to the drawing board and attempted to improve upon their success rate this time.

Here's what they've come up with, starting with the Championship:

There's a clear alignment in thinking in terms of who will win the division, with all three of the lads hanging their hat on Gordon Strachan's Middlesbrough.

With Nottingham Forest appearing in the top three for each of the lads, they are fancied to challenge once more.

Leicester, Sheffield United, Reading, and QPR are all commonly fancied to be somewhere in the top six of this season's Championship, too.

At the bottom, all three lads believe the end is nigh for Scunthorpe, with Watford and Preston also highly favoured to make the drop into League One for 2011/12.

All the lads agree that it could be a difficult season for the likes of Millwall, Barnsley, and Portsmouth.

The biggest disagreement is over Crystal Palace, with 14 places separating Turls's bottom team, and Nobes having them down for a top half campaign.
