It’s a lot of m’eh for me.

Dirty Leeds - horrible club, horrible fans, could legit pose a threat after a few years
Norwich - waste of a Prem spot. Come up, bring nothing to the league, get relegated. See you again in five years for more of the same
Sheff Utd - obvious reasons
WBA - yawn
Boro - don’t mind Boro to be honest
Bristol City - would be nice to have a new prem club
Derby - couldn’t handle the FL love-in
Forest - be happy for them to come up

So ideally I suppose I’d choose Boro, Bristol City & Forest but that’s not gonna happen.

It’ll probably be Leeds, Norwich and hopefully one of those three.

Bristol City have plenty of scummy little fans. The sort that wouldn't mind attacking scarfers, kids, elderly.

Dirty Leeds were the visitors back in April 1973 at my first ever game. They were a big club then under Revie and they were winning trophies regularly but have over the years slid down the league's despite winning the top tier with Howard Wilkinson, and to be honest, they really should be in the top tier so I would welcome their return.
Norwich is a decent away day but allocation is never the greatest so not always easy to get a ticket. Forest on the other hand always give a decent allocation and we always seem to have a good turnout up there.
Leeds, Norwich and Forest will do me. Be nice to see Sheffield United implode in the Play Off Final!!

As long as it's not bland boring clubs like: West Brom, Middlesbrough etc.

Would definitely like Norwich back in the top flight as I always enjoy that away day. Leeds to replace Huddersfield as we'll be losing a Yorkshire team and just to add a big name back in the League. Same argument for the final place from the play-offs. I would like either Derby, or preferably Nottingham Forest. I would even take Preston if they can scrape in as a good away day trip.

But for me the League is crying out for more exciting, bigger clubs.

What's more exciting at the end of the day. Facing the likes of Bournemouth or Cardiff at home. Or facing someone of Leeds United, or Nottingham Forest's ilk? I know what fixture I find more exciting. :thup:

I went to the Reading v Leeds game last night and Leeds looked really good, especially in the first half. With a little bit of investment, they'll end up being a bit like Wolves next season.

I know a lot of Leeds fans up here and they're all a decent bunch of lads. From a football perspective they are miles away though, wouldn't expect them to stay up for long and a long way behind us at the moment.

Definitely both Leeds and Forest. Would like Wednesday. It will then feel a bit like 'the Premiership' of the early 90s. Where's Swindon Town these days?

It's good for the likes of us to see Dirty Leeds stay in the championship. They're a huge club - a large city with only the one team - and have the potential once they've re-established themselves to push past the likes of us in the "challenging for the top 6" game.

Sheff Utd would be good as it would mean another derby - if we can call it that - but frankly I'd far prefer that scummy club to slide down the leagues and eventually go out of business.

So for me, Narrich, Bristol City and Derby.

They did that last time we played them in the Championship, as did Southampton fans.

Leeds are guaranteed to sell out all their away allocations.

Any three that would finish below us next season will do me but I'd settle for:

Leeds Utd
Notts Forest
Sheff Wed

I want Sheff U to come up, purely so I can order 3000 Carlos Tevez masks and hand them out to our away end when we play them at their place.

If they come up i am 100% doing this.

Would just need the likes of Oldham, Ipswich and QPR to return and they could get Gray and Keys back in the studio.
