Who wins the Championship 2018/2019?
England Championship has been very interesting for years in the fight for promotion. Usually, in the last couple of rounds, almost half of the league is heading for the last sixth place on the table that is leading to the playoffs. That's how it will be this season. Every year, the Championship is more unpredictable and more difficult to predict. Foreign owners, coaches and incredible transfers raise this league to an ever-increasing level.
It's easy to say that almost half of the clubs in the league have the goal of promotion to the Premier League, either directly or through a play-off.
Swansea, Stoke and WBA are relegated to the Championship from Premier League so certanily they are expected to finish at the top half on the table next season. Wigan and Blackburn are directly promoted from League 1 but they are not expected to fight for the top.
Derby and Middlesbrough after failnig to won promotion to the Premier League are expected to be the main favourites to win the title in the England Championship. Leeds, Shefield United, Millwall, Preston, Norwich are teams that we expect to fight for promotion and maybe to suprise us and win the league. Hull, Bristol City, Ipswich, are teams that probably will fight in the middle of the table with big chance some of them to fight for promotion.Bolton, Birmingham, Reading alongside with the new comers probably will fight the relegation battle.
Of course the transfer period is very important for theese clubs because the season in Championship is very long and hard.In the season 2017/18 Sunderland was expected to fight for promotion but insteed they were relegated to League One. It only tells us that anything is possible in this league and it is best quality and reason for so many fans to watch every game, every round to the very end.
It remains for us to watch the transfer period vigilantly and wait impatiently for the start of the next season.
