We're around the halfway mark in the season so its time to start thinking - who's going to get automatic promotion?


Recommended Posts

I'm still uncertain that Crystal Palace can keep up their form- it has been dipping slightly recently and they've been unable to capitalize when Cardiff have dropped points.

Cardiff always capitulate after Christmas so recent history tells us we can expect a drop off in form.

There really has been no breakaway team- and the currently in form Milwall are really racing up to join in the ranks of the big boys. Will it last?

I think Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace are going to take the top two spots.

Any other thoughts?

Holloway may just have the "X factor" to keep Palace up there.

Fancy Hull or Boro to nick 2nd spot although Leicester & Cardiff will be close

Play off places are well open, so two from above plus one from Burnley, Blackpool, Bolton or Blackburn (just too many lancs teams beginning with B in this league).

Burnley have the best goalscorer in the league, pity they didn't buy a top defender in the summer. 'http://www.dcfcfans.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ph34r' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':ph34r:' />

Bolton and Blackburn could well buy a few players in Jan and strike lucky.

That leaves Derby to glide gracefully into the last play off place on goal difference from the gormless gumps.

The top 3 are on good form.. Isn't it usually 85 points for the autos? If Cardiff beat Leicester tomorrow they're going to look a very good beat for an auto position..

I think Palace might struggle defensively.. Holloways teams never defend well..

Boro look a good bet, solid home and away..

Hull have won many games by the odd goal, I think they'll fall away..

The top 2 I reckon will be Boro and Leicester... As for the playoffs who knows.. If Brighton can find the goals they'll become a dangerous side towards the end of the season.. I'll go with them to claim a playoff spot and promotion.

Middlesborough and Hull City

Leicester always fail. Pearson will get the sack and they will spend again.

Palace will lose some players i think.

Cardiff are reliant upon their home form too much, after Peterborough won there i think there could be more wins available.

1 Hull

2 Boro

3 Cardiff

4 Palace

5 Leicester

6 Brighton
