Watching Cardiff v Leeds. The Cardiff manager just asked the ref for a drinks break when they were under pressure. The ref did it.

Oh dear! Seems that the refs in the Championship are no better than those in League 1.

Find the drinks break quite funny, 19c Temperatures aren't unusual at either end of the season, and we've got a league with lots of players from warmer climes

Probably hard to judge in these circumstances but do you think our team is far off from competing from the first round of games?

Middlesbrough have sacked Woodgate, and replaced him with Warnock.

Seems really odd timing. Why didn't they do it while the season was on hold. Come back, do your mini pre-season, play one game then sack him makes no sense for me. Surely better to have Warnock in to do the mini pre-season.

Would Warnock be much of a training ground trainer he strikes me more as a motivator/bully

Incredible
Some fucker at the club needs to be held accountable, and dealt with appropriately. Have the BBC or other media outlets been made aware of it yet?

I had a bet on the bottom 3 to win today.

Barnsley, Hull, Luton.

It almost came in. Just shows you how bonkers restarting the football is.

Haven’t looked at the table in the championship much until we went up, Huddersfield and Stoke look like they are trying to do a Sunderland

Huddersfield lost again today, they look in real trouble and have some difficult games left.

Blues impressive beaten run comes to an end, as they are thumped 3-0 at home by relegation threatened Huddersfield.

Yep, saw the Bournemouth game last night and they already look down and out.
Hopefully increases the chances Callum Wilson might get a move if they're relegated which would give us a bit more cash to work with

Adam Armstrong still looks great. Let's buy him back!
Would love Armstrong back here, but still has 2 years left on his contract so would probably cost 2-3M. Dominic Samuel will be out of contract though.

Looked good when he was here but another who did his knee and hasn't hit the same heights since. Might be worth a punt if his wages weren't too high but if we're keeping both Baka and Biamou unlikely

Anybody else watching championship sides and thinking “we’d beat them...l?”

I just watched Hull and I fully expect us to beat them

When did Andy king sign for Huddersfield ??? Seems abit wrong that they can get him and play the remainder of the season.

He joined them on loan in January for the rest of the season, he becomes a free agent at the end of the season as Leicester are releasing him.
