    The Championship is far more interesting, much less predictable.

    and yet Nottm Forest are still specials to win promotion this season.


    All who agree say I

    i would like to see the top 5 or so english clubs go and join a euro league, the pl would be really interesting with 5 more teams from the championship.....

    wonder how ipswich are going to do this year under keane.

    i still prefer watching serie a over the pl.

    What the hell is the Championship?

    Oh yeah, England's second division.

    Joke aside, I may happen to agree that it could be far more entertaining and, with less prima donas on the field, it may even be more engaging.

    But I don't get Championship on TV here, mate.

    yeah but other than utd games i don't watch a lot of the pl. maybe motd and the 'big' games. would rather sit down and watch palermo play parma (who are just back up this year) than watch villa play bolton any day.

    No the English lower divisions rule, there are only a couple teams in the premier league.

    then all other levels and competitions run 2nd as it is a great game where ever you go.

    Mind you, lad has a point.

    I'd rather be performed an tooth filling through the bum than watching the likes of Stoke vs. Wigan.

    I probably wouldn't watch wigan v Stoke either

    But I would watch Forest or Liverpool against either or even any Aussie club if they ever decide to tour australia for preseason.

    It's true that the championship is far more open but the PL is a thousand times more exciting if your lucky enough to follow ManU, Liverpool or Chelsea!

    As Liverpool are actually genuine title contenders this year their rivalry with the champions will be better then ever...nothing in the championship can compare to the rivalry between ManU and Liverpool!
