    At the risk of alienating some, it’s time to talk about who we’ll probably be playing against next season. Denial is not a river in Egypt, blah, blah, blah.
    Norwich City and Leeds United currently occupy the top two spots, but, as they say, there’s a lot of soccer left.
    Three through six looks like this:
    3. Sheffield United
    4. West Bromwich Albion
    5. Middlesbrough
    6. Bristol City
    Derby County are seventh, but tied with city on points with 50 each.
    Down at the bottom are Reading, Bolton and Ipswich Town. Rotherham are a point clear of Reading, but -20 GD vs. Reading’s -12. The others relegated from the Prem last season, Swansea and Stoke, appear to be staying put. as do Derby and Aston Villa. As an aside, Luton Town (hello Hatter!) are leading League 1 by a healthy 6 points.

    [Luton Town with a healthy lead in L1] Followed closely by Barnsley who have been helped to that lofty position by 11 league goals from Cauley Woodrow. We just might see him back at the Cottage next season ... along with LTFC.

    Me? I'm still hoping we'll stay up. It could happen.

    There were five matches yesterday, five more today. Leaders Norwich are at PNE, 2nd place Leeds host Swans who, according to the Daily Mail (shields up, red alert) have significant administration issues. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/a...spute-threatens-engulf-ownership-Swansea.html. Bolton won yesterday to boost them within 2 ponts of safety. Not much change elsewhere. Bristol beat the 'Ha's and Brentford host Villa today.
    From a purely historical standpoint, I'd really love to see Leeds back in the top flight. They just seem like they belong there.
