As a long time Birmingham City support relegation battles are part of being a Blues fan. I know there are a number of people on here that follow teams in the Championship.
The championship is far more interesting than any other league, football qulaity is not the best, exception of Wolves this season.

Must say the last 3 games will be tense, there are some interesting games taking place and our run in is tough.

Sheffield Utd H
QPR A
Fulham H

To all the fans of Championship clubs do you prefer your team to be in the Championship or Premier League knowing that you will only be playing to stay in the league. In the Championship there is more competition which means the league is always interesting to watch.

To all the Leeds fans can you get behind your team on Saturday to beat Barnsley, I suspect Wolves will have been out all week on the mick so Bolton might win that one. And Sheff Wed fans again back your team against Reading.

Interesting couple of weeks ahead.Lets hope it's not down to the last game again.

Hoping to be at the last home match to watch Boro take on Milwall, more twists and turns this season than in a twisty turny thing

What do you make of Gary Monk as a manager and tactician?, bombed at Leeds and Boro, surprised he got back into management so soon

He has made a diffrence, that was always going to happen after we had Steve Cotteril there.
Jury is out at the moment for me. Next 3 games will show what he has got Im sure.

I'm a Bluenose as well for my sins. To quote Fergie "it's squeaky bum time" just hoping we can do our usual Houdini act but it's gonna be difficult.

And we will both play the Albion as well

Barring minor miracles, Sunderland and Burton are gone. The third spot is between Barnsley, Birmingham and Bolton. The way things have been going in the league, it will take someone braver than me to predict which one it'll be.

Iím a north end fan. I do agree with the hitman , itís the hardest league to get out of and the easier to fall out of. The other season the top 3 changed positions every week it was that tight. The bottom can go the the final day aswell. Teams are that evenly matched. I do feel itíll change now the premier league gives a massive payment for relegation.

The PL parachute payment scheme now is less than it was a few years ago and over the years the Albion have been the best team to use it to their advantage.
It was put in place the soften the wage bill blow but IMO I don't agree with it as it gives the relegated teams an unfair advantage.

The PL's failed attempt at trying to achieve a close shop

It went up slightly a few years ago but the conditions changed so the relegated teams receive it for less years.
How a team can get financial reward for 3 to 4 years for being unsuccessful is beyond me.

Relegated Prem teams got £40 million this season, something like 25 million next and 20 million the year after. Thats fine, but don't forget they don't have to spend it like Hull City's owners haven't. I prefer to watch Championship football myself, seen some cracking games this season, with lots of goals, although not all going into the right net unfortunately.

I think the Brum speckies and maybe players might have got a little false belief when they beat Hull City 3-0, we could have got a side off MD's and given them a better game than Hull that day as they were terrible.
