some cheaty predictions about the EFL — so if i feck it up, it’s even worse — LEAGUE ONE 20/21

So I’ve already cheated about the Champo, so we’re ganna go one league down now, to League One.
Which makes the Championship League Zero. And the Premier League, League Minus One?

It’s Division Three.

I don’t need to explain that to you.

This’ll either make me look a lot worse if I get it wrong, but a feckin genius if I’ve analysed play correctly.

Here are my predictions for the EFL League One.

Aye, I’m happy with that.

Are The Tractor Boys on course for their first piece of silverware in over twenty years?
This guy thinks so. This guy thinks they’ve done gone worked it out.

Power continues to cascade down the divisions as most clubs share the wealth and each division becomes stronger and more competitive. A league that this Oxford side would have walked just five seasons ago will now (in my opinion) see them finish mid-table.

But spare a thought for sides like Wigan, whose downfall is through no fault of what has happened on the pitch. The pitch is the only place where the fate of football clubs should be decided, and it’s a disgrace what has happened to that fantastic club residing in a town I’m not that fond of.

Once again, the climb begins, but whose ladder is the sturdiest?

Whose stairway to heaven is paved with gold?

Keep it streets ahead,

C.L.R.
