I really was hoping that someone else would start the thread this season, but it wasn't to be. We had some quality action in this thread last season, helped by the addition of our Geordie friends I think. They're gone along with a well deserving Brighton squad and a fairy tale Huddersfield story. We welcome Hull, Middlesbrough, and (finally) Sunderland from the promised land, while we welcome back Sheffield United, Bolton, and Millwall, who replace Rotherham, Wigan, and Blackburn. There are 30 British top flight titles, 33 FA trophies, and 19 League Cups between the teams, with 12 stadiums with capacities over 30K. We've got a bunch of quality derbies (Steel City Derby for the first time since Wednesday smashed the pigs in 2012), quality managers, a variety of playing styles, and a bunch of owners who are willing to spend the cash. 46 brutal games from Sunderland to Cardiff and from Ipswich to Bolton. This league is awesome and I hate it so fucking much. There's a lot to cover and go over (and we have a lot of time), but I thought I'd start with this great piece on Sunderland's downfall. Well worth the read. @americantrotter @Investor 11 @Mr Poon 14 @thehitcat @Stanley Steamer @markinlondon @Smiling Joe Hesketh and a few others I'm sure I've forgotten- Good luck.
