Buckle up. The brand new Championship season is across the nook and our EFL pundit Tom shares his 1-24 predictions.

The brand new Championship season is across the nook and our EFL pundit and co-host of podcast ‘There Is a Floodlight That By no means Goes Out‘, Tom shares his 21/22 season preview, along with his 1-24 predictions.

AFC Bournemouth – While it’s an appointment that has been bashed within the media- Scott Parker does appear to be a superb match for Bournemouth. I just like the soccer Parker performs and I actually assume the Cherries can push on this season. Dom Solanke to enhance as soon as extra, Ben Pearson to eat up Championship midfielders and David Brooks to be his common maverick self. The Cherries will push onerous for Prime 2 however fall simply brief.
Prediction: third

Markus Schopp is a little bit of an unknown to 22 managers on this league isn’t he. Solely Valerien Ismael is aware of what to anticipate. A variation of ‘Struber-Ball’ and ‘Ismael-Ball’ appears to be coming to Grove Road and I for one am excited. Now in fact the losses of Alex Mowatt & Daryl Dike shall be felt however I really feel as if we’ve changed effectively while additionally having the standard within the squad to succeed them anyway. To start out with the Mowatt alternative job- Josh Benson is a category addition from Burnley and seems to have class in abundance. And with Herbie Kane to step out of the shadows, Callum Kinds to step into the center, Romal Palmer stepping up the consistency, with Massive Aapo nonetheless doing the enterprise when referred to as upon and who knows- Marcel Ritzmaier presumably simply stepping as much as the gauntlet, the Reds’ midfield could possibly be even stronger. And regardless of the actual fact Dike & Chaplin have left Oakwell, I truly assume the Ahead line has certainly improved, Aaron Leya Iseka, Obbi Oulare & Devante Cole are class additions and I’m actually enthusiastic about Leya Iseka in particular- with the Belgian having rumoured to have commanded a payment that smashed the Georgi Hristov/Mike Sheron switch file. Cartlon Morris is the ‘Tarn Thierry Henry’ and for me is likely one of the greatest gamers within the league- not fairly often have I seen a participant at Oakwell who’s as thrilling as he. Cauley Woodrow the brand new skipper will get higher and higher, and at this membership I’ve to applaud his loyalty, one thing we very hardly ever see nowadays- what a boy. Dom Frieser and Clarke Oduor are each very helpful property within the assault too with the previous by no means stopping operating & the latter being considerably mercurial. Defence clever our central defence is somewhat impeccable, Helik, Andersen, Sibbick, Moon, Kitching & Sraha, it could possibly be impregnable at instances. Cal Brittain and Jordan Williams as wing-backs additionally actually excite me. The one factor I fear about is over-playing in our personal half however I belief this set of lads and I really imagine we’re one of many 6 greatest groups within the League once more this season.
Prediction: sixth

Birmingham Metropolis- Lee Bowyer is such a mean supervisor I can neither reward nor berate him. Brum’s enterprise has flattered to deceive for me this Summer season, and the additions of Jordan Graham, Tahith Chong & Ryan Woods simply to call just a few don’t encourage me. One other tawdry season of nothingness for the Blues, with the odd aim from the Juke preserving them effectively away from security.


Blackburn Rovers- Put merely Tony Mowbray ought to’ve been given his P45 on the finish of Could. The failure to take action from the Venky’s , locations Rovers in a precarious place & with the inevitable lack of Adam Armstrong and the Bradley Darkish-shaped void persevering with for an additional season, the ‘Burn’ within the phrases of Liam Gallagher in 95’, will wrestle. A scrap for survival beckons.

Prediction: nineteenth

Blackpool- There’s just a few causes that Blackpool will survive however the principle one, is the Neil Critchley issue. He’s an impressive Coach at this degree who no doubt will obtain nice issues throughout the recreation. Different components for me embody, Kenny Dougall being majestic, Jerry Yates scoring objectives & Chris Maxwell stopping them stepping into. Survival could be successful for the Seasiders and regardless of it in all probability being a long-hard wrestle, they are going to obtain simply that.
Prediction: twentieth

Bristol Metropolis- Nigel Pearson nonetheless hasn’t received the correct minerals on this squad that he so vitally wanted following final time period’s shambolic residence type. The Solely optimistic for the Robins is that sure younger gamers similar to Tyreeq Bakinson will proceed to enhance, however aside from {that a} poor season forward. I’ll put my neck on the road right here and say that by Christmas Pearson may have left Ashton Gate.
Prediction: 18th

Cardiff Metropolis- Massive Mick to get the Barnsley Schopp early on. By that pun I imply that Mick McCarthy will barely survive ’til Xmas with Cardiff languishing within the backside Half earlier than one other gaffer has a slight resurgence with the Bluebirds taking them as much as a decent twelfth. Kieffer to bag just a few lower than he did final season in a facet that desperately wanted reinforcements however couldn’t afford them. The younger ’uns are going to be relied on closely.
Prediction: twelfth

Coventry Metropolis- Mark Robins has carried out an impressive job with Cov. I again him to construct on the again of final season with a decent fifteenth of their first season again on the Ricoh within the Champ in 9 years. The lack of Leo Ostigard is the one cause why the Sky Blues don’t fairly crack the highest half however I nonetheless actually like them as a workforce. McFadzean, O’Hare & Godden is a superb core.
Prediction: fifteenth

Learn Half 2: Derby County > Nottingham Forest

Learn Half 3: Peterborough United > West Bromwich Albion
