    Newcastle 23rd? Heh. You’re mental.

    At last, a Championship review that isn’t based on ‘a list of the most famous managers I can remember without doing any research’…

    I’ll be delighted if Palace get anywhere *near* a single digit placing in the table, but agree that Warnock for all his many, many failings, is well suited to getting the best out of the situation.

    Nice review, Rob. The only things I would particularly take issue with are the Reading synopsis and the Newcastle one.

    Reading may have lost 9 players but only really Doyle will impact. The others were not regulars or easily replaceable. Also, in Rodgers, they appear to have a ‘canny’ manager. They still have the tools, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see them up there, indeed even top 2.

    And, although I agree with all of what you say about Newcastle, they have now got a bit off the wage bill and, if they become decisive before the end of October and appoint a manager, they shouldn’t struggle quite as much as bottom 3, although probably not much higher than mid-table.
