For all those who've never tried it before, and those who have.

Here's the English Championship trapdoor with 10, 11 or 12 games to go.  
7 recent EPL clubs possibly dropping to the 3rd tier

I propose everyone pick-a-team now and follow the results until "your" team is safe. (maybe not Rotherham though)

Maybe change your avatar until May 7th, when the season finishes.

I'll pick Blackburn to pray for.

Away to promotion chasing Norwich on Saturday, so will settle for a point

Well most of my clubs got relegated last season so this season is looking a lot better, although York City are really looking like they want a double relegation.

The only change I want to see at the bottom of the Championship is Wolves replace Bristol in the drop zone. So I guess I will go for Bristol in this thing.

This would actually be really good for League 1 since 4 teams go down.

It's just a lightweight exercise for those out there who aren't sure how a relegation battle feels, just in case...........

With a new president (who "wants to bring champions league to the club") as of this week which adds another twist.
The old president would have gone through 3 coaches in the next 11 weeks so we shall see...

VICTORY!!!!!

Bristol left it late though. Very good result. Lifts them (and Wright) out of the drop zone and compounds Wigan in it.

Singing for the Wanderers ?

Fairly expected win for Wolves has tightened everything

I've include Villa still but their win may get QPR and Brentford feeling a bit nervy 

Might have to shift Sokorny onto Birmingham once Villa are safe

Anyone want to take Forest, Burton or Ipswich ?

Let's sweeten the deal - if one of our teams gets relegated, the loser buys the winner a beer at the next AL/Socceroos game we both go to. If both teams avoid or get relegated, null and void. 

Quick skim of the fixtures and both our teams have already played Bayern Munich twice, so run home avoids the giant. But Hamburg have Dortmund, and Werder have RB Leipzig, so we both have 2 of the bigger teams to go. Plus, April 15 is OUR DERBY! Fire up farken!
