    Collection of Championship predictions (feel welcome to update as you see more)

    First up, Gabriel Sutton of Bet Victor: https://blog.betvictor.com/en-gb/spo...-preview-1-24/

    Cardiff City - 17th
    "....Moore will be the inspiration if he stays fresh, fit, firing and at the club, but relying on one variable is a dangerous game."

    I can see us being a solid mid table club this season, yo-yoing somewhere from between 14th to 8th. How high we actually finish depends on Moore staying fit for for the course of the season.

    Gabriel Sutton says how I feel it is with a lot of the other clubs. Not sure if Luton, Blackpool and QPR or the jacks will do as well as he says. WBA will do better than ye says. Can see the teams that he says will struggle, struggling. I'm not often 100% right though. Hence I'm not a gambling man

    Thanks for posting, always an interesting read seeing these predictions but there seems to be some very bold ones in this. Barnsley 2nd? Blackpool finishing above both us and West Brom? I just don’t see it, West Brom will be higher, we’ll be mid table and I can’t see Barnsley replicating last seasons form. I think Reading will struggle more than he predicts and not sure Warnock has had the investment he wanted at Middlesbrough to get them into the play offs

    I know I'm having a strange afternoon but if City are relying on just one tactic is it a variable?

    I’d be astonished if we finished 7th. We haven’t signed a single player in 2021 and lost Olise and Richards with Meite out for most of the season. We have a desperately light squad and go into the new season in the back of one win eleven.
    Relegation battle more likely.

    I think the arguments for WBA and Blackpool were both good ones but not convinced Barnsley or Reading will finish as high as predicted or Stoke will come in that low.

    PNE and Derby fans seem worried so think that's a fair shout for relegation threatened teams.

    Not The 20 podcast 1-24 is out today as well so next one I'll be linking to. Am sure there are more out there too others can link in - TLG sometimes references another gambling company as one he rates so hopefully he'll link it in/give us a summary.

    It has Bristol City finishing above us.

    I think that tells me all I need to know

    File under b ollocks.

    I'll be surprised if Bournemouth, Fulham, Sheffield United, and West Brom don't all finish in the top six.

    I reckon they will be the top 4.
    Stoke, QPR, Boro probably top of the rest which might include us - which is very much dependant ( as is the case for most clubs outside the top 4) on a handful of key players staying fit and on form.

    Morrison, Tomlin, Moore being the key 3.. maybe Giles

    Big doubt for us !

    Sheffield Utd were so bad last year I dont think they will make top 6.

    Re: Collection of Championship predictions (feel welcome to update as you see more)

    Apart from 3 coming down, I think only Bournemouth likely to challenge for top 3.
    Teams like Blackpool may very well have an early season bounce(wish we werent playing them early doors) but I cant see them sustaining it.

    Of the other clubs in the Championship last year, I was impressed with Coventry. Nice football, lacking cutting edge. Last season was Barnsley's high water mark. Cant see them replicating that.Blackburn are always solid performers. On the other hand I can see Derby and Swansea struggling.

    City will be ok. Solid mid table 10th. Hopefully 1 or 2 youngsters will cement their place in the side.

    Jokanovic knows what he is doing at this level.

    Pearcey will be happy how negative they are about Reading's chances. They also highlight how bad Swansea are looking behind the scenes which, considering recent parachute payments and play-off runs, asks big questions of their owners and what they've been doing.

    Will give time-stamp for City when I hear it.

    They have us in 10th, they certainly don't share many of our concerns and seem to consider it the minimum to expect

    This is from the When Saturday Comes season preview. They ask a fan from each club for their thoughts on their own teams and also a predicted table, then find the average from each. Not sure when everyone was asked though.

    Thanks Championship was such a squad game under covid rules and that will be less of a case this year but still the sheer number of games in this league makes it an important factor. No one has been that active in the market though and I felt we had the 8th/9th best squad last year so I don't think we'll have taken too much of a step back from that.

    In the Despondency thread I said 10th so am happy to match up with these guys.

    Gabriel Sutton has set up a thread where he's going to link to other predictors and someone has mentioned waiting for Loft for Words messageboard which I remember doing a quality one last year. The thread is here but I'm not adding my recommendation yet for any of the others mentioned: https://twitter.com/GabSutton/status...43012176973830

    On the Apple Podcast version we're 41:25 minutes in.

    I think a fast start is is less likely given how disrupted a pre-season though.

    Off The Line has us in 8th in this blog post: https://offtheline599656488.wordpres...eason-preview/

    I was going to suggest that was too positive until I saw When Saturday Comes's table (thanks Bluebirdman Of Alcathays) which I think is even more too positive

    I don't know of any more now (will be keeping an eye out for LoftForWords) but please do add any you come across that I've missed.

    Here's a more optimistic prediction;-

    https://blog.marathonbet.co.uk/champ...p-predictions/

    but I think the guy in the first link Surge posted has analysed us pretty well (although I think he's made assumptions about our manager based on his public persona and not much else - our "simplistic tactician" of a manager immediately introduced three at the back, a system which had been a bit of a disaster when tried at Cardiff in Mark Harris and Neil Warnock's time, and improved the time as a result). Seventeenth seems a bit low (although I see FIFA 21 has us finishing twentieth), but I'd say he's right about us struggling to create chances and about us not being as as good as we think we are at preventing them.

    I see us finishing in the top 6, I don't think there will be any changes to our style, and it will be interesting to watch 3 or 4 of the youngsters cementing a first team place.
    Whatever anyone thinks of Mick, you don't get to manage the amount of games he's been in charge of, if you don't know what you're doing .

    Personally I am really looking forward to being able to get down the City again
