‘If’ we get relegated and end up in L1 I wondered who people on here would prefer to be in that division next season?...ie the ups and downs that will form the league.
Here’s my thoughts...(on the basis that we might be able to go to some away games, appreciate that is very much an ‘if’ but being optimistic!) Let’s assume Sheff Wed are the other side coming down with us, I’d choose that in any case as means two big games v them.
Coventry - quite bored of playing and not beating them so prefer if they stay up.
Rotherham - not fussed about playing them again and would be good if they proved they could stay up too
Birmingham - quite fancy a trip to St Andrew’s so wouldn’t mind them coming down
Huddersfield - no thanks
Derby - this would be the choice if it’s possible for them to implode and Rotherham to win their games in hand. Feel a bit robbed of a visit to Pride Park this season (amongst other great away trips of course)
LEAGUE ONE PROMOTION
Shame Hull are most likely coming straight back up, would have been a good away day
Peterborough - I’m going to be controversial... I don’t wish them any ill feeling just because of that random local journo or Adrian Durham trying to stir up reaction. Good on them being a small team and doing well this season. Realistically, can’t see Sunderland catching them or Hull in any case.
Would like to see Lincoln go up with those two in the play-offs... means Oxford don’t have any success and we keep big games v Sunderland, Pompey, Charlton, Ipswich and maybe an away day in Blackpool! I’d prefer the division to be strong with big teams rather than teams we think we “should” be able to beat because of their size, we proved in the two recent L1 seasons we can be a force at home v “big” teams.
LEAGUE ONE RELEGATION
Looks incredibly tight down there but defo want Wimbledon and Wigan to survive - primarily for the potential away days. A trip to Plough Lane especially - assume most would share that view. Not fussed about playing Northampton, Bristol Rovers, Swindon or Rochdale!
LEAGUE TWO PROMOTION
Looks very tight but probably hope for the top three to stay as it is (Cheltenham, Cambridge, Bolton) Hope Derek Adams and Morecambe fail, Tranmere should really come up (for some justice from last season) but for me, Exeter up in the play-offs for an away day that I’ve never managed to do.
The obvious answer to this is of course... “I don’t care who we play next season I’ll just be glad to go to a game again!”
