Who Will Be Promoted From the Championship To Premier League?


365869025 5af6481442 Who Will Be Promoted From the Championship To Premier League?

Photo by urbanmkr

Just like the bottom of the Premier League (which became even more congested this week), the top of the Championship presents a tangled mess of possibilities. With two automatic promotion spots on the line and playoffs for the next four, no one seems to want to grab hold of a position. Every time it seems a club is having a small run of form then results go against them (exhibit 1: Leeds losing to Sheffield United) and they slip back to the pack.

So lets go ahead and look at the teams and I’ll freely admit this is a mixture of fact, opinion and deep seated bias.

Queens Park Rangers:

For the purposes of this article I’m going to assume they will not be deducted 10 points and drop back into the pack. More than anyone, QPR have made the most of their chances. They have not been perfect, slipping up on a regular basis but they have been more consistent than anyone else. I used to go watch QPR as a youngster, plastic pitch and all, they had a nice stadium that was easy to get to. I’m not sure we need another London team in the Premier League but I think we’re going to get one. QPR were a top division fixture when I was a child and it will be nice to see them back.

QPR’s position leaves only one automatic promotion spot which no one seems to want to own.

What about the other promotion contenders?

Norwich City:

Another club I always considered a top flight team. A few weeks ago Norwich were powering their way through the division but recently became unstuck, winning a few games but dropping points against Preston, Doncaster and Leeds before another string of wins sees them rise into second. Unlike QPR, Norwich just do not have the look of a team that will be able to hold their place in the Premier league. They look pretty safe for at least a playoff position but there are no guarantees for the automatic spot. April 9th’s clash with, currently, third place Swansea will be significant but other than that they have a, relatively, straightforward run in. You can buy tickets to Norwich City matches on TixDaq.

Swansea City:

It would have been nice to see both Welsh teams promoted but right now that’s looking less likely. Of the two of them Swansea had been the most consistent. But recent results, until this weekend’s win against Nottingham Forest, have been poor. Swansea have a solid core to the team but again don’t appear strong enough for the Premier League to me. While only playing Norwich of their direct competitors they still have a tough run in against teams who will be fighting for playoff spots.

Cardiff City:

Cardiff, as a team, trouble me. A lot of their success has been based on loan players such as Craig Bellamy, and recently, Aaron Ramsey. It’s hard to see them maintaining this in the Premier League. Early in the season they seemed shoe-ins for promotion but have dropped away badly with only their recent win against Swansea keeping their pride and chances intact. Right now they are 4 points off the automatic promotion spot and 6 points safely into the playoff positions. Of course, last year’s disastrous Wembley defeat at the hands of Blackpool will surely haunt them. This weekend they dropped points to a late goal from playoff chasing Millwall after twice being ahead. They have one of the more straightforward run-ins fixture wise, but with teams like Preston and Derby picking up surprise points regularly nothing can be taken for granted.

Leeds United:

Leeds are currently in 5th place, 6 points off the auto spot and 4 points into playoffs. As a young child I rebelled against my Man Utd loving family and became a Leeds supporter but by the early 90’s they became the enemy. Right now I feel sorry for them and would like to see them return to the Premier League. Recent results have not been great, getting only four wins from the last 10 games and this weekends loss to local rival, cellar dwellers, Sheffield United was a disaster. Leeds have a pretty tough remaining fixture list and will do well to stick in the playoff positions

Nottingham Forest:

Sixth place and six weeks off being run away promotion definites. It’s not that long since Forest were challenging QPR for top spot. Forest are a team that people of my age remember as a European Cup winning powerhouse so it would be nice to see them at the top of the pyramid again. Their next game, after the international break, against Leeds will be a big one. Defeat could well see them drop out of the playoff spots. Seven points off auto promotion with 4 teams above them makes that an unlikely proposition at this point. Quite remarkably Forest have not won one of their last 7 games. Prior to that they beat Cardiff and held QPR to a draw. Who knows what team will show up for the rest of the season, which presents them with a tough few games over the next month.

The Chasing Pack:

Forest currently have 60 points, 7th place belongs to Reading with 57 but then down to 13th position has 54 points, this makes things very open. All of the chasing teams have shown flashes of power and dramatic failures. If you take away the first 10 games, Leicester City would be in an automatic promotion spot yet recently have dropped key points. Millwall and Reading both look strong, with the latter undefeated in the last seven with only defeats against the top three teams in their last 25 games. Watford have had some very strong periods this season but this weekends defeat at Middlesbrough was poor. Hull and Burnley are the quiet but steady teams who have surprisingly risen into contender positions, though both have had some recent disappointing results. Finally there is poor old Portsmouth. It’s quite amazing what they have achieved with such a threadbare squad and making up points and places just seems too much to ask.

The next 4 weeks will clarify the picture greatly but, in my opinion, the problem for almost all the teams, with perhaps QPR being the exception, is that they are not as good as the teams that will be relegated by a long measure (perhaps they are better than Wigan). Teams such as Wolves, West Brom, Blackpool and many others who may be relegated play better football and are better teams than these challengers. It’s a tough one because you have to play a certain way to get out of the Championship, but that very same way rarely is successful once you reach the top flight.

Please provide your opinions in the comments.

    QPR: “Slipping up on a regular basis”. Can you expand on this?? 4 defeats all season, 20+ clean sheets, unbeaten runs of 19 and 11 games, most wins, 23 goals conceded (just 11 away in 19 games), goal difference of +37, 20 better than the next team. That’s about as perfect as you can hope a team to be in the Championship!

  2. James says:

    Nice read. I have a hard enough time keeping up with the EPL in the States and I find Championship football to be extremely elusive. What are some decent avenues of keeping track of the lower levels of English football?

    • Joe says:

      There’s usually one or two Championship games a week available on foxsoccer.tv.

    • trickybrkn says:

      If you watch the SKY sports broadcasts on FSC, they almost always give 2nd div results with highlights. Otherwise just click past PL on the BBC sport site…

  3. John Aspland says:

    An interesting appraisal and I agree that as it stands any promoted team would struggle in the premiership, but all promoted teams are going to add to their squads to improve them. I’m hoping my team Norwich City, can maintain that 2nd spot but much depends on the result at Swansea on April 9th. If we can manage at least a draw then I think we can go on and secure promotion. Swansea do not have a very impressive away record unlike Norwich, and that may well be where they fall down. Cardiff actually have the easiest run in but are a little short on form. I can see Forest slipping out of the top 6 to be replaced by the in form Reading.
    My biggest fear for Norwich is injuries or suspensions in two key positions namely Grant Holt and either of the center halves. We are short of quality cover in these positions so that could hurt us. Provided we avoid such problems my top 6 would be QPR, Norwich, Cardiff, Swansea, Leeds & Reading. Cardiff against Swansea in the play off final would be interesting!

    • Manamongst says:

      Do we really believe that QPR will have trouble grabbing players? Between Bernie Ecclestone, Flavio Briatore and billionaire Vijay Mallya do we really think they will be operating on a Blackpool-like budget?

  4. trickybrkn says:

    I’d like Sheffield United relegated, QPR, Norwich & Forrest Up.

    and what’s this not sure if we need another London club business. Have you looked at the amount of teams from greater Manchester.

    • Matt says:

      I’d like to see QPR up, but I don’t think they’ll be competitive long-term with such a small stadium. That being said, Ecclestone is about to sell his majority stake and if sold to the current 1/3 owner, Mittal (worth $30bn), maybe we’d have the next Man City in the making.

      Since 2002, of the 20 teams promoted, only 5 completed 4 consecutive seasons without being relegated. And of those 5, only Manchester City looks safe. Three of those teams, Wigan, West Ham and Birmingham are all in jeopardy. That leaves Portsmouth; we all know how that ended.

  5. Evan says:

    Bellamy might be on loan to Cardiff, but if Cardiff get promoted, they HAVE to sign Bellamy. It’s part of the deal. Cardiff could quite possibly still have Bellamy next year.

    • Jan says:

      I believe Bellamy will be offloaded on a permanent basis to Cardiff. Cannot see where he will fit in with his current owners, whereas he has made a wonderful contribution with Cardiff.
      No way QPR will slip up, even if 10 points were to be deducted. However, it is almost unthinkable that the FA will make that decision if one compare with what happened with the Tevez situation at West Ham. A fine is a much more likely outcome.
      Norwich will follow Rs up and after that it is anyones guess. Watch out for Reading though. They have had a great run lately and could become a serious contender.

  6. Rex says:

    Don’t feel sorry for Leeds Utd. We’ll be back to stuff those prawn sandwiches down your throat soon enough.

    Interesting that you were briefly a Leeds Utd ‘supporter’ ‘cos there’s no such thing as an EX-Leeds FAN.

    Enjoy your plastic football while it lasts; and keep looking over your shoulder

  7. Bob says:

    Must agree with Rex,no such thing as ex Leeds, Leeds is in your blood or it aint, simple. Think Leeds will hang on to play off place but it could have been better. Must congratulate Warnock he has done a great job at Q.P.R where so many have failed recently, second place i believe is a toss up between Norwich and Swansea, hope its Norwich myself, other play off places will go to Cardiff and either Forrest or Reading.

  8. Pakapala says:

    I have been rooting for QPR to make it to the EPL for a while now. It has been thrilling to see their rise to the top. The teams I would like to see join them are 2 of the following teams: Cardiff, Swansea (want to see at least 1 Welsh team in the EPL), Norwich (just love their yellow/green color in the sea of blue white and red usual colors).

  9. James says:

    Please don’t ever tell anyone, or put in writing that you were a leeds supporter. It embarrasses us as a whole, once you’re leeds, it’s your life. Simples.

    QPR will be docked points. They deserve it. They broke the rules, and should be punished. -15 I say. As all the others who were docked recently for their mistakes. I hope the FA are harsh with their punishment. If that happens, auto could be back on.

    If no auto, I just hope to avoid Cardiff in the playoffs. They have looked the most dangerous team going forward, and gave us fits all year.

    Against the rest, I think we’d have a great shot of wembly success, and a summer of seeing all those who wrote us off try an win us over by saying how great we are, and how we deserve to have made it back to the premier league!

    Everyone hates us, and we love it. Save your sympathy and affection for a team that needs/wants it!

    MARCHING ON TOGETHER!

    • Paul says:

      As an oversea Leeds supporter from what i have seen of them and read the reports they will have to have luck on their side to get promoted.
      They have some good players but not enough class were it is needed, a lot of the players are fringe players from other sides which is good buiness as we havnt gone into debt but the squad is large with players that have ability but not that extra bite to win games

  10. Maybee says:

    I’m hoping for Leeds. Just for all the delicious drama of it.

  11. Ilkleywhite says:

    Sorry mate, great read and all that, but once a Leeds fan always a Leeds fan, its in your blood, come back to Elland Road, you’ll soon re-discover your “roots”

    All the best

  12. Tony Butterworth says:

    You Leeds fan’s are delusional :) A 5 year old boy support Leeds for 6 months because (a) he wanted to be different than EVERYONE else in his family and (b) he liked Peter Lorimer, does not make a Leeds fan forever. In fact this theory about Leeds being capable of being “in the blood” is funny :)

    You are probably right about QPR’s form, it just seems like they have not been as dominant recently. Checking the results it’s clear they have been doing just as well recently but I guess the 1-1 draw with Preston stuck in my mind more than anything.

    This is an interesting link
    http://stats.football365.com/dom/ENG/D1/oform.html

    It’s the “Last 8 games” form table and shows Portsmouth #1 and QPR #2. Nottingham Forest way down in 19th

  15. Jason says:

    And if your a Leeds hater then your one for life. Stay in Division 2 where you belong!

    • James says:

      oh look, internet tough-guy.

      hope you visit ER next year, and mouth off like that sunshine.

      wait… fans like you don’t go to away matches, and prob don’t know how to get to a ground. No doubt in that considering most teams hardly travel with away support, but we sell out (and outsing) every club we visit!

  16. Rex says:

    We just love winding you muppetts up.

    Wait ’till the Manc. Scum’s debt mountain comes home to roost, then we’ll see some rats leaving the sinking ship

  17. Zak Sparks says:

    I think the promoted will be QPR, Norwich and Swansea purely because these 4 teams especially QPR play excellent football and they are so strong and consistent.. Don’t get me wrong Forest, Cardiff and Leeds are greats teams but they are just not really a premier league outfit and think that if QPR and Norwich got the automatic promotion then deservedly Swansea shall be the one to nick the play off spot.. And with the Leeds being in your blood that’s kinda not true.. Being a Manchester city fan is more in your blood cause that is the main team considering its the city in Manchester..
    And just going to congratulate Adel Taarabt on earning player of the year, And R.I.P to his cousin who were shot dead in Marseille just before the game between QPR and Doncaster.
    Come on you R’s!!

    • James says:

      Zak, I’d be willing to be you’re still a teenager… am I right? Between your name, and the fact that you think Citeh are ” the main team considering its the city in Manchester… (you think that millionaire owners mean they will win things), and your random ramblings (probably a sign of diagnosed ADD – if not, you should get checked out).

      you can’t support Queen’s Park Rangers and Citeh. If you’re a QPR fan, you can’t argue with the facts – http://www.worldfootball.net/zuschauer/eng-championship-2010-2011/2/

      Leeds are number 1 in home, and away attendances. Period.

      If you’re a Citeh fan, good luck with that. Must be great to have a team with no history, and a trophy cabinet full of dust. You’re own players can’t wait to leave!

      Make a trip to ER and maybe you’ll have a clue what a real fan (and real club are)

      • Why? says:

        James, on the attendance front are Leeds beating Derby? If so not by much maybe your beating Norwich by a thousand or so (not after your 19 games table of course lol, selective or what?) this is nothing to get excited about as your ground holds more than 40,000! This looks even poorer when you consider they are trying for promotion.

        On the Man City thing, if their cabinet is full of dust it still has more trophies than the mighty (lol) Leeds Utd’s so the feather duster must be worn out! City have won more, simple. As for history give me some examples of Leeds’ and I’ll bet you City‘s will more than trump it! History is different from cups not that that matters as City have more on both fronts anyway!!!!

        Make a trip to ER and you will see the almost half empty stadium of a club that should have set divisional records with the size of the ground but simply have not. Real fans my arse.

  18. Rex says:

    Forest and Leeds are just not Premier League outfits!

    Your nappy needs changing.

    Just how many domestic & European Titles have QPR, Norwich & Swansea got on their CV’s ?

    There was football before the Premier League, and it was less predictable and much less boring

    • Zak Sparks says:

      That’s my opinion.. Everyone has one and that’s mine..
      Don’t cry over something i thought was probably just about right and there is no point talking about history cause now is what is important and QPR used to be one of the best teams around until we went bankrupt and sold off all of our legends.. I don’t really care how much cups any of these teams have one. They we’re history and no one even cares about it. Forest and Leeds we’re relegated to league 1 so i am pretty sure that they wouldn’t survive very long.. Where as QPR have the money they need to buy some quality players and i think when we go up we will have a good enough chance of staying put in the premier league, We might struggle the first season but we’ll get there and hopefully be the legend team we used to be.

  19. Tuttle says:

    If QPR goes up and Ecclestone doesn’t sell his shares what are the over/under odds on him suggesting something monumentally stupid be done to make football “more exciting” in the EPL? Something like, oh, I don’t know…. random sprinklers going off during the game or a medal system for determining the champion.

  20. James says:

    QPR won’t be going up… there’s a points deduction coming.

    you can’t sign players using illegal agents, when the players are owned by a 3rd party. That’s a big no-no. Ask Warnock about it (though you’ve done even worse than the hammers did with Tevez).

    • Zak Sparks says:

      Not really that was 3 seasons ago and it is funny how they are trying to deduct us points when we’re top of the league init.. The FA or someone doesn’t want QPR up and even though we have won every game fair and square.. They can’t deduct us now and I’m pretty sure we’ll only get a fine of around 6-10m somewhere around that.. Even if we do get deducted we’ll still go up cause we have the power to win consecutive games in a row and were strong enough to battle anyone out our way.

      • ChrisEllis says:

        Sorry Zak, you just lost all credibility when you used the phrase ‘init’.

        Also, sounds like your trying to justify QPR trying to cheat the system by creating some sort of quasi-conspiracy theory that the FA doesn’t want QPR in the Prem? Sorry, that wreaks of panic and desperation. And it’s obvious you’re not the one shelling out the 6-10 mill isn’t it?

        Anyway, QPR will be docked points and justifiably loose to Swansea at Wembley. Norwich will take 1st, followed by Cardiff.

  21. Rex says:

    Zak.

    Your dreams will come true.

    QPR will go up this season and they will win as many trophies as they did before their unfortunate bankruptcy and subsequent sale of legends.

    Remind me how many trophies that was and who those legends were. I’m too young to remember, and don’t care about history anyway.

    • Zak Sparks says:

      Les Ferdinand, Rodney marsh, Stan bowels, David seaman, Gerry Francis..
      It doesn’t matter about trophies does it and clearly QPR are showing it as there are well flying at the top of the championship, your just jealous cause you know you will never own the top sport like we do..
      And im only 16..

      • Bob says:

        Sorry sunshine but you are deluded, the players you mention are from different eras, they did not all play together in the same team, good players i admit, however when did Seaman become a Q.P.R legend, he was sold from Leeds for £4,000 as he was surplus to requirements at the time, now if you had said he was an Arsenal legend i could agree with that

  22. Tim Whelan says:

    Tony Butterworth said “You Leeds fan’s are delusional”

    Tony, it should be “fans”, not “fan’s”. It’s a straightforward plural, so there’s no need to have an apostrophe anywhere near it.

  23. BBC says:

    I want Leeds in the top division. . . . want to see them get thrashed instead of just reading about it.

  24. Rex says:

    Zak

    Of course we’re jealous. We’d love Leeds to be in your position, but we’ve just come up with an inexperienced manager ( Warnock has been ‘around the block’ many times), so we can’t be too unhappy at the progress so far

    It’s great the you are so passionate about your team, and as a footy fan of many years I’ve always enjoyed my visits to Lofthouse Road and consider Rangers fans to be ‘proper fans’ like those at West Ham, Portsmouth, Everton, Man City, Sunderland Stoke and many others. It’s the glory hunters at Anfield (deluded souls – financial meltdown ahoy), Old Trafford, and Stamford Bridge I detest.

    I’m hoping you’ve got it all sewn up well before the end of the season, so that you can do us a favour on the final Saturday. With our run in we’ll probably need it

    • Andy Staynor says:

      I must say I’ve been enjoying reading all the comments here, but this one just reeks of hypocracy! What makes you think that “Top Drawer” clubs – you know, the ones who WIN trophies every year CONSISTENTLY – have fans who are any LESS passionate than “yours” ? And the “tall poppy” syndrome is obviously as alive and well in your neck of the woods as anywhere else on planet Earth!! Sheesh!! I’ve supported Manchester United (THE team from the city of Manchester, I believe!) for over 40 years! I never wimped out when they were relegated to Div 2 (ironically on the back of a back-heel goal from a United legend – Denis Law – playing for City!) and I’ve NEVER been any kind of “deluded soul” or “glory hunter”!
      When you have THE best manager in football history, combined with a plethora of history, more trophies in the cabinet than ANY other Premier team AND a decent sized pitch PACKED every week (producing a decent sized income to attract the BEST talent) then what you simply have is the EXACT formula for success. No fantasies, no lofty expectations, no wishful thinking – just the SIMPLE TRUTH!! So WHY do you “detest” such ardent fans? Maybe there are some “late-comers” who only jumped on board since SAF became manager? SO WHAT!! We ALL started as supporters SOMEwhere, didn’t we? Save your detestable envy for your personal life and enjoy the passion you have for the club you support WITHOUT derision. It’s puerile and pathetic!

  25. LUFC says:

    Just like we’ve been thrashed at Old Trafford, The Emirates and White Hart Lane in recent seasons?

  26. Rex says:

    Zak

    One more thing – saw Stan Bowels play.

    He was sh*t.

  27. James says:

    Zak, I’d be willing to be you’re still a teenager… am I right? Between your name, and the fact that you think Citeh are ” the main team considering its the city in Manchester… (you think that millionaire owners mean they will win things), and your random ramblings (probably a sign of diagnosed ADD – if not, you should get checked out).

    you can’t support Queen’s Park Rangers and Citeh. If you’re a QPR fan, you can’t argue with the facts – http://www.worldfootball.net/zuschauer/eng-championship-2010-2011/2/

    Leeds are number 1 in home, and away attendances. Period.

    If you’re a Citeh fan, good luck with that. Must be great to have a team with no history, and a trophy cabinet full of dust. You’re own players can’t wait to leave!

    Make a trip to ER and maybe you’ll have a clue what a real fan (and real club are)

    SO IT APPEARS I WAS 100% ACCURATE WITH THIS POST THEN. NICE.

  28. I know some supporters don’t feel the same way I do, but I’d love to see QPR go up. Would be a nice derby match with Fulham twice a year

  29. DomiNate says:

    Rex- I understand how you feel about Old Trafford and Anfield. Why throw Stamford Bridge in with them? Not the same at all. Sure, Chelsea now have a billionaire owner, but Blues fans were supportive for nearly 50 years without a title. Calling us glory hunters is a bit harsh considering no one under 60 had ever seen us win one.

  30. Terry says:

    QPR deserve to have 10-15 points deducted for their violations.

    Would like to see both Welsh teams go up and it will give both teams an incentive to do better than the other.

    Leeds will be my other team I’d like to see back in the top flight.

  31. Mike in Idaho says:

    I look for Forest to sneak into the playoffs and crash out spectacularly as is their new habit. The recent playoff failures against Blackpool and Yeovil come to mind, at least the games were damn entertaining even if the results were bad.

  32. DAVE says:

    LEEDS UNITED should be back in the epl . bigger club than man u !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    jan 3rd remember the date . MOT

  33. Jay says:

    QPR & Norwich auto.
    Leeds United Play-off winners(we are due one…LOL)

    MOT

  34. Eamonn says:

    Stan BOWLES guys……………Q.P.R. will only be found guilty on one minor charge and that is using a registered fifa agent who was not registered with the FA at the time(he is now apparently)…that is the whispers coming out of the FA by all accounts……U RRRRRRRRRRS goin up with norwich and the swans me thinks xx

  35. Paul Cranswick says:

    Should nail my colours to the mast first – I’m a die hard Leeds man and have followed the whites since 1972 (six years old). That said and also in part of our own bitter recent experiences I hope that QPR don’t experience our fate and have points deducted for off the field matters. Let’s be honest they sit atop the division on merit and deserve promotion. Of the rest it is really whoever gets it together in the last eight games that will prevail. Obviously I’m hoping that is us and on our day we are head and shoulders better than the rest. The trouble is we have the habit of not turning up when the going gets tough. This would worry me for the play-offs too by the way. Norwich are the most together and have a never say die attitude that has seen them grab so many late goals. Cardiff seem to have hit a wall and Forest had a good run which seems to have disintegrated. Swansea are like two teams – good at home – lousy away. Reading could come from the pack for the play-offs and are a good cup team which would stand them in good stead. QPR / LEEDS / NORWICH for promotion more in hope than certainty.

  36. MG says:

    Hard to tell who will be the other two, other than QPR (who I’m glad will be up.. something about that team I’ve always liked)

    Those playoffs are unpredictable. I’d say Leeds and Swansea.

  37. Rex says:

    Eamonn

    Did my Northern sense of humour escape you?

    Stan Bowels – sh*t …geddit?

  38. Eamonn says:

    No Rex i know what you were gettin at you cheeky git and i know you can’t be serious about stanley he was abs class once he was out of the pub or betting shop lol…

  39. nice article tony, I was about to put something like this on ChampionshipTalk.

    Gaffer, is there anyway to put this on ChampionshipTalk too?

    Cheers

    Kris

    • The Gaffer says:

      Google will slap us for having duplicate content, but if you’d like to write a similar post for Championship Talk, feel free. Thanks.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

  40. Jason says:

    Want to see Swansea in the EPL next season if only to see how the gaffer reacts to his team losing more than winning :) .

    • The Gaffer says:

      Jason, yeah, it would be a tough one for me. I’d love to see them promoted. But I also love how I can follow the Premier League without being biased since Swansea are not in the same division.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer
