More Reliable Than A Championship Octopus? (4/12/17)

More Reliable Than A Championship Octopus? (4/12/17)

Time for the special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final Championship positions for the season of 2017/18.

Last season the Octopus feature was a late arrival for the Championship - it was off having its tentacles given a Brazilian for all I know.

Then again I still don't know why I call a number crunching supercomputer an Octopus but some things are probably best left unasked.

In any event here are the updated Championship predictions for the season of 2017/18 after most sides have played at least 20 games of the campaign.

Who goes down?! Who is the current favourite to lift the title this year?

Well you don't have to guess.

With most playing 20 games in the Championship in the season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are Wolverhampton Wanderers with 110 points, with Aston Villa sitting in second on 90.

The Play Off spots are also pretty nailed on if the predictions are to be believed - Cardiff City, Derby County, Bristol City and Sheffield United. Sheffield United sit six points clear of nearest challengers Ipswich Town.

At the other end of the table it's also pretty nailed on with Birmingham City, Sunderland and Burton Albion all predicted for the drop. Birmingham are six points shy of safety and Norwich City.

The one thing that can't be ignored though is there is a hell of a lot of football still to be played and sides start well and fade away and others find form as the months tick by, but this is a bit of fun - I wouldn't bet your house on it! Nearing the halfway mark though, the table will soon take on a more real shape.

The predictions are a reflection on the season so far, and absolutely nothing more, and in most cases the next fixture weekend could cause wholescale changes to the table.
