    Josh Challies & Steve Wollaston, take a bow. That media course credit on research worth every penny.
    "could"
    "might"
    Not a single quote from Robins or any CCFC insider.
    You would think its a TransferMarkt produced advert.

    I guess so, but the article starts like this:

    ‘The Championship season may feel like it has only just begun but clubs will already be looking ahead to the January transfer window, where there is plenty of business to be done.’

    Stop trying so hard guys. It’s a fairly standard article and doesn’t imply City are in the Championship at all. If you aren’t interested don’t read it, but you’ve probably just given it around a hundred clicks and made that sort of thing more likely to appear in future. Server logs don’t record ironic clicks vs genuine ones.

    No, newspapers can no longer afford high quality investigative journalism in every piece. Welcome to the 21st century, we don’t have classifieds and we get our news from involuntarily celibate men in their bedrooms now.

    The devil is in the detail.

    It was all about players not getting games and being available for loan. And then it named those out of contract at the end of the season. It named the players and clubs that are Championship level. We were not included.
