Whilst the focus at this time of the season is who will be promoted to the Premier League, no one wants to consider the possibility that their side will be relegated to League One.
The Championship has shown over the years that it is has no respect for reputations with some of the most famous sides in English football having suffered relegation to League One.
Former Premier League sides, Norwich, Southampton, Manchester City, Nottingham Forest, both Sheffield sides and Leicester City have all had to battle their way back from League One in recent years and all 24 teams will be hoping that they do not suffer the same fate.
Based on last season and the strength of playing squads, Crystal Palace, Coventry, Barnsley and Doncaster all find themselves tipped to be involved in the relegation battle, however every side in the league can be considered capable of being dragged into the mire.
No matter what the pre-season predictions the transfer window is still open and any of these sides will feel they can put together some results and avoid a drawn out battle against promotion.
I would be interested to know who you will think will go down, will the teams backed at this juncture by the bookmakers struggle or will we see one of the larger Championship sides once again flirt with disaster?
