    English Championship kicks off tonight

    Anyone interested in the English Championship (old div 2)?

    Well it kicks off tonight with Reading vs Derby (managed by Frank Lampard).

    Competing teams are:

    1 Aston Villa
    2 Birmingham City
    3 Blackburn Rovers
    4 Bolton Wanderers
    5 Brentford
    6 Bristol City
    7 Derby County
    8 Hull City
    9 Ipswich Town
    10 Leeds United
    11 Middlesbrough
    12 Millwall
    13 Norwich City
    14 Nottingham Forest
    15 Preston North End
    16 Queens Park Rangers
    17 Reading
    18 Rotherham United
    19 Sheffield United
    20 Sheffield Wednesday
    21 Stoke City
    22 Swansea City
    23 West Bromwich Albion
    24 Wigan Athletic

    One of the rare occasions where the 3 Birmingham teams will be in the same division. Should make for some spice.

    Aussies competing:

    Mile Jedinak & Jordan Lyden - Villa
    Bailey Wright -Bristol City
    James Meredith - Millwall
    Mass Luongo and maybe Trent Sainsbury - QPR
    Ryan Williams - Rotherham
    Jackson Irvine - Hull
    Adam Federici - Stoke

    Hopefully one of the above earns promotion or someone like Brentford or Preston.

    Re: English Championship kicks off tonight

    Come on PNE!
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Go Derby. Keep your eye out for Mason Mount, the kids going to be a star.

    Re: English Championship kicks off tonight

    A lot of games on Foxtel just looking through the listings, 3 on opening day alone. Looking forward to seeing a fair bit of the EFL Championship this season and I'm hoping Preston can actually bridge the gap for once and find their way into the Premier League and that Milwall give it a fair shake too.

    I love the goal keeper watching it and saying to himself "I've got it covered, I've got it covered" then the ball dips and he lifts his hands but it's too late and you can almost hear him thinking "oh shit"

    I didn't realise it was Vito. You're right he is appalling. I can't believe he was on Arsenal's list for so long.
