TBH not really worth getting excited over 4 goals yet. Let's see what happens over the course of the season.

Some strange results this weekend, division starting to take some shape. Big missed opportunity with the Brizzle defeat

Established is pushing it a bit - only 2nd season and one of about 8 clubs who could easily go down this year.


I think Burnley are fcuked. Chris Wood is not a premier league striker.


Leeds dont seem to be missing him

Further evidence to reinforce just how utterly clueless I clearly am :lol:

Though in my defence I was hardly alone in thinking Wood might not cut it at PL level, but that being said it's early doors, let's see how the season pans out.

Leeds looking very decent this year (which pains me) although yet to come up against a strong team, with the exception of I guess Sunderland, although they're struggling as expected.

Did anyone watch Derby on Friday night? I really think it might be their year this season, they looked cut throat.

Bristol City have scored 3 at Wolves, currently in front.

Maybe they're not so shit?

Some interesting results tonight

Have to wonder how long Bruce is going to get. Brizzle as stated showing they are half decent

Sunderland rubbish. Norwich obviously missing that goalscorer 8) and Colin getting out muscled by a decent looking Preston side

Brentford set up very nicely for their first win of the season on Sat I expect

Successive home defeats for Sunderland against Sheffield United and Forest.

That club is rotten. Wouldn't be too surprised if they flirt with relegation again.

Fox Talbot's Law states that one of the top two in the Championship after 7 games will go up automatically.

(Based on data from the dozen or so seasons)

So that's our chances halved already :cry:

Impossible to state a preference between Leeds and Cardiff.

the only thing that could have improved that is if it was also blown for offside
