Championship 2015/16 season previews in the press

These should start coming out in the next few days. Apparently Racing Post have predicted:

Champions = Middlesborough
Runners Up = Derby
Play Offs = Sheff Weds
Play Offs = Wolves
Play Offs = Burnley
Play Offs = Hull

Taken from the Massives forum, so dont have the rest of the league.

If anyone has it, it would be interesting to see. Also, as and when previews come out (442 etc) could people post them on this thread so we can see what the press and media outlets are reckoning?

As for the above, the top 2 seem fairly obvious although is there a bit of jumping on the Downing bandwagon? As for play offs -

Sheff Weds were similar to us last year, and have had a very similar approach to recruitment this time around
Wolves???? Their fans are going nuts because the team has fallen to bits, they have lost Sako, and not bought anyone in to replace him. Very strange selection here.
Burnley and Hull are fair enough - you would expect relegated teams to at least bother the play offs.

We all know that people will massively 'under predict' us if the odds are anything to go by. But I would be interested to see the previews with comments, to see justification as to why a team that has finished 12th the previous year and invested much more than the teams around them will drop like a stone.
