Mao we are gracing the Championship with our presence, hopefully just for a season, so about time we had a thread for all things to do with the league and our new company that doesn't fit in threads about individual teams.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm not that up on the players in the league so looking forward to changing that.

Owen Coyle already coming out with all the excuses. This guy is an absolute parasite.

I remember Owen Coyle was the brightest young manager in British football :o

I actually tipped him, privately, to be the next manager of arsenal at one point..........on reflection though, i didn't take his spirituality into account so that's where I must have gone wrong......

He got Burnley promoted and did well for 18 months at Bolton....his managerial career has never recovered from somehow losing 5-0 to Stoke in the cup semi final in April 2011.

I know theres a lot of games which makes it "tough" over a full season....but the way people were talking championship quality preseason couldn't be any further from the truth. I thought it was going to be a prem lite league from what people were saying . People were making out its really physical and super fit league. Defending is this league is laughably bad. Very surprised how bad the standard is from games I watched
