New Season Begins

The new football league season begins tomorrow so here's a few of my predictions:

Norwich and Crystal Palace will go straight back to the Premiership
Crewe will get relegated
Bristol City and Nottingham Forest will get promoted to the Championship (pushed hard by Huddersfield who will hopefully follow them via the play-offs at Wembley)
Port Vale will get relegated
Northampton and Wycombe will get promoted
Rushden and Diamonds will get relegated
Rangers or Celtic will win the Scottish Premiership (that ensures I'll get one right at least!)

I'll do Premiership predictions later in the week.

I went to see a Huddersfield reserve side play against Bradford Park Avenue in a pre season friendly on Monday night. The match was being sponsored by my old work so David and Eppy were there and it was nice to see them again. Town won 3-2 and collected a trophy which was the size of the Champions League trophy - the White Rose Cup. Due to the sponsorship we were allowed in the VIP area at half time (a portacabin). We had tea and sandwiches with the Town coaching staff and chief executive and John Helm (commentator and BPA president) which was nice. It was too scary tospeak to them though!
