Final EFL Weekend: More Climaxes Than Your Favourite Porno

There’s still plenty to play for in the Championship, with top spot and the relegation places still not decided as we head into the final round of games on Sunday lunchtime. Brighton know that only a win at Aston Villa will do if they are to secure the Championship crown, and are a great price at … Continue reading

Promotion for Bolton and Emotions Running High in the EFL

It’s the last weekend of the regular season in League One, so we’re kicking things off there this week, and and we’ll start at the Macron Stadium for Bolton v Peterborough. The Wanderers just need a win to secure their automatic promotion, and despite the inevitable nerves, I think they’ll nick it to the tune … Continue reading

A Tangerine Purple Patch and Harry’s Villa Blues

Huddersfield can close the gap on second-placed Newcastle to just four points (with a game in hand) when they face in-form Fulham on Saturday. The Cottagers are flying on the road though, having won four of their last six Championship away games, and Huddersfield looked nervy in their drab 1-1 draw at Derby on Monday. Fulham … Continue reading

Easter Monday: Zola’s Blues Horny for a Second Coming

A vastly superior goal difference means Brighton can all-but secure promotion to the Premier League on Monday with a victory over Wigan. The visitors have won back-to-back games to give themselves a Championship survival lifeline, and while I think they’ll give the Seagulls a game, they will more than struggle to get anything out of … Continue reading

Enjoy Good Friday with these, errr, Good EFL Tips!

We kick Good Friday off with a vital Championship play-off clash in Norfolk, where Norwich host Fulham in a game that will go a long way to deciding their respective top-six destinies. The home side should be feeling confident after scraping past Reading 7-1 last weekend, while Fulham have stuttered a bit in recent games, … Continue reading

Soaring Seagulls and Blades to Make the Promotion Cut

Brighton have the chance to return to the top of the Championship while putting a 12-point gap between themselves and third place on Friday night. They travel to mid-table QPR, who are staggering towards the end-of-season finishing line. The Seagulls have won four of their last five, while Rangers have looked pretty lifeless in consecutive … Continue reading

Squeaky Bum Time in the EFL…Unless You’re Doncaster

It’s a crunch-game convention in the EFL this week, featuring plenty of games with more riding on them than your favourite porn star. A trip to Suffolk is our first stop, where another defeat for either Ipswich or Birmingham could plunge them right in the thick of a Championship relegation dog fight. Since January, this … Continue reading

A 4/1 Oriental Lifeline and a League One Goal Glut

The Championship puts its feet up for a break from league action this weekend, as the division’s top talent represent nations such as Scotland, New Zealand, Atlantis and Pandora over the next few days. But enough about those prima donnas (which reminds me, I’m gagging for a kebab), you’re still in for a weekend of … Continue reading

A Massive Midlands Derby And Some Shrimps On The Plymouth Barbie

It’s a spicy encounter at the quietest of times, but the East Midlands derby between Forest and Derby has an added tablespoon of heat this weekend thanks to the arrivals of Mark Warbuton and Gary Rowett at their respective managerial helms. Both sides are bang out of form in the Championship, so both gaffers will … Continue reading

Unlucky for some: Thirteen Crackers From The FA Cup And EFL

It’s FA Cup Quarter Final weekend, and if you’re a fan of backing Arsenal at 1/12 and Spurs at 2/13, then this isn’t the blog for you. Chelsea at 20/23 is much more like it, though. They’re on a run of eight wins out of ten, while United will be in the middle of a … Continue reading
