Welcome to our _connect Football! I hope it provides you with our opinion and analysis needed to follow the EFL Championship in England.
Certainly, there are no shortage of champion contenders. On form table, the “Top two” of Leeds United and Norwich City look to be ahead of the promotion chasing pack, but there is no shortage of strong contenders from the north: Middlesbrough and Sheffield United.
The midland challenge looks strong this year, with West Bromwich Albion and Derby County in particular looking intriguing prospects. From London, QPR have developed a spine of the side and looked brilliant even though sometimes predictable.
A personal hope for this competition is to see more English football. Sadly the trend from the top end competition was different.
If the Championship teams in Play-off stages of this season’s Championship is something you look at, these teams are definitely demonstrating what the art of English football. And that can only be a good thing in EFL.
For more English football to flourish, we need the big English individual starts to live by working with the world stars in the league. But the stars may not be enough. We need positive thinking from the coaches. It’s likely to come from the bench power in their academy berth. There are encouraging signs from the balancing imports and homegrown.
