The official CHAMPIONSHIP Thread

A lot of Championship teams supported on here.  Would be quite good to have a common Champion-ship-wide thread.  The championship has a lot going for it in that is is far more open than Premier League and a bit more 'real'.  Weaned on teams like Burnley, Preston, Barnsley, etc etc us championship team fans wonder what all the fuss is about with Phoenix going through a bad patch.  Those top-four glory hunter followers don't even know they've been born sometimes!
 
Anyway back to topic, starter for 10 ... Who do you support? 
 
I'm Burnley (username gives a wee hint!).  Been a Claret for over 35 years now (born & bred Kiwi though).
 
Who are Ya?

I'll get  in early Turfmoore, having supported a championship (and lower) side for all but 2 months of my 37 years of supporting the Tigers, i feel all too at home in this neck of the woods
 
you are right there's a fair few championship supporters in YF,  have a bloody good time yakking away
 
having had a yak to a Preston supporter at the YF season launch i hope they do well,
 
 and there's another Burnley supporter who used to come to the games last season (part of the 39 ) so i look out for your lot's results too
 
and to all Col u fans -  good luck in the miracle comeback run .. starting about now
 
your thread might even rouse Upside Down Blue from his slumbers, and with a bit of luck we might see the odd 'stoush' between HN and Boycie

I support Reading in their quest to get back to where they belong (Premier League not League 1 or 2!). This is the first and last season of English Football that I'll be writing in this thread. simon_hampton2008-09-27 20:06:17

No, we won't go down. I don't think we'll go up comfortably though. Might just scarpe in.

Yes, I've had a few chats with a Preston fan (Ian?), and met other Burnley fans in the zone.  It's Burnley v Preston tonight, so plenty of Lancashire pride at stake. We made a slow start this season but have picked up (knocking Fulham out of League Cup in process).  I'm kind of hoping that the Phoenix can follow suit!
 
I'm aware that HN supports some East Anglian outfit.  Not sure which one, all much of a muchness down there

I know, I know, its serious!

1962 still rankles!  And how we let your lot win 3-0 at our place earlier this season, I'll never know.  It won't happen again.  Not this season.

We're improving at a rate of knots.  Been unlucky not to win a few as new players settle in.  Hopefully the results will come soon.

QPR since '78. Initial reason: the hoops and entertainers like Bowles, Marsh, Francis etc
It'll be great to exchange banter with some real fans.

Won't be too thrilled at the loss at home to Deby then.  Bit of a surprise that.
 
Wolves & Brum juggernaut keeps on going.  Reading looking most likely to get amongst them at this stage - another healthy home win. 
 
Burnley's revival continues!  One happy camper.

Happy with 3 wins on the bounce - actually I'm very surprised following the horror start!
 
Great point about some of the people here moaning at the Phoenix's start - some of them have probably only seen a dozen live games in their lives! You support your team through thick and thin - end of story. I remember Argyle being 91st in the football league!! A lot of people over here just don't have football in their blood, let's hope that changes and the numbers just grows.
 
I understand Plymouth is now the biggest city in Europe never to have had Top division football following Hull's fabulous achievement!!

Indeed, Plymouth's & Burnley's form has been quite similar (hence the 0-0 dross when we met at the start of the season).
 
Some real good games on the horizon.  Birmingham & Wolves should both face reasonable tests. I expect Wolves to fall apart at any stage!

If Wolves are going to fall apart it will have to be against us. And then we'll hammer Burnley no problem.
