Wolves, Sheffield United, Cardiff and Bristol City keep out Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham (and don’t mention Sunderland)

The last time I reported in, Leeds were the only club from our readers’ pre-season choices to be in the top six positions. The other five – Cardiff, Wolves, Sheffield United, Bristol City and Preston, in that order – had together accumulated only 617 votes, about 7.5% of the total cast, and Wolves had had over […]

Another international break, another chance to catch up on our favourites for the promotion and playoff places. You might remember they were, in no particular order, Fulham, Leeds, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland. How have they done? (If you’re new to this series, or if you want to catch up, you can trot […]

Cardiff, Ipswich, Forest, Wolves and Sheffield Utd leave Villa, Fulham, Wednesday, Middlesbrough and SAFC standing

Do we know owt about football? That’s what I asked a couple of years ago, when I was comparing a pre-season poll with end-of season positions. And that’s more or less what the Mrs said  when I showed her the graph I’d done to compare the current championship placings with our readers’ pre-season expectations. Just […]

Birmingham, Wolves, Brentford, Forest, Cardiff, Preston, QPR and Ipswich go missing from our poll

I have to say I’m a bit surprised by the poll results to date. ‘Boro being top is reasonable. They have proved they are capable of handling the Championship, have money coming and have a decent manager. Sunderland in the top six is understandable. It’s a Sunderland site, and no matter how jaundiced the fans […]

Relegation watch: still looking at Watford, Bournemouth and Norwich, with Leicester hanging on

What a website! On 15th June, in response to my “who went down, who’s going down?”  Dave left a comment which included: “… I think Pearson will, at some point, have a big row with a player or a fan, and the team’s spirit that kept them up will dissipate…” Two weeks later Leicester City’s […]

Relegation: it’s still Bournemouth and Watford. Can Leicester and Norwich relax?

Strange, isn’t it? I spend Monday evening idly browsing the MLS (aka Major League Soccer) website trying to work out how it (the league, not the website) operates and then along comes David Millward with a piece about a football convention in the USA. I wonder if the fans he mixed with can get their […]

Dodgy-ng relegation

McCormick's Craic

This post is about relegation, something never far from our minds, and who this season’s three might be. Over the summer I looked over a little bit of history and generated some numbers in order to bring you more of my dodgy predictions. Enjoy them or argue with them as you will. Just don’t nick […]

Black’s Bluster on dismal Wolves surrender: the ‘pivotal moment’

Call it stating the bleeding obvious if you will. Eric Black sends his first and last post-match SAFC e-mail … Dear Colin, I thought we deserved to take the lead, but the penalty changed things. I don’t want to take anything away from Seb [Larsson], though, as he has been fantastic for us. (more…)

Wolves, the North East and a love-in that stops at Newcastle

Not everyone goes to the message boards and sites of other clubs. I have to quite often, in search of Who are You? candidates, and I have to say Molineux Mix has been a happy hunting ground. You’ve seen Andy Nicholls’s award-winning contributions. Today you saw the reason some Wolfies thought he was getting our […]

Wolves maul Sunderland in another Hetton horror show

Is going to watch the Reserves becoming a pointless exercise, in more ways than one? Pete Sixsmith reports from a Little & Large show … Reserve nights at Hetton are beginning to lose their allure for me. After a dispiriting 3-0 defeat on Tuesday, I am beginning to wonder if there are other things I […]
