I’m feeling dizzy this high up!

But what can we expect from The Championship?

Here is a list:

ST and match day tickets will increase, and rightly so!
Goal line technology.
Bigger crowds.
There will be more media attention, especially from Sky.
International breaks will apply all the time.
Much tougher teams.
Kick off times changed much more.
No EFL Trophy!
Join the FA Cup in R3


What else?

Lots of very, very tough matches.
But I'm sure we'll have a blast!
 
KO times will be moved around a lot. Silly away ticket prices at some grounds.
Luton away will be lively no doubt.

Teams in the championship next season:

Burnley
Luton
Sheffield united
Bristol city
Middlesbrough
Sheffield Wednesday
Norwich
West Brom
Leeds/Southampton
Cardiff
Hull
Coventry
Preston
Millwall
Swansea
Sunderland
Watford
Stoke
Blackburn
Plymouth
Portsmouth
Derby
QPR
OXFORD

No matter how tough it looks and will turn out to be for us, just have a brief look at league one next season and be thankful we got out when we did. That was an opportunity we had to take and we did, and we need to really focus on trying to stay here because L1 now looks an absolutely horrible division.

I mean, no offense to the league, but you have to imagine we're not going to be delve into the Irish market as much this summer as we have the last few years. I'm excited to see what calibre of player we're linked with in pre season.
 
I think we have to be careful about going in with a mindset of just survive.

100% If we can add some consistency to our game so that we put in the kind of performances we’ve seen in the last couple of months 7 or 8 times out of 10 we shouldn’t fear anyone. There will be teams in there who are the polar opposite of us - club feels likes it’s dying from the inside, players jumping ship, turmoil over managers and owners. Not every club in that division will be challenging for the prem, and I have every hope we can stay up and establish ourselves as a championship side.
