By my reckoning, there are seventeen teams in the Championship that have played Premier League football since we last had that honour. Four definitely haven't and there are two more that I'm not sure about. Which ever way you look at it, it makes for sober reading! Would be interested to compare notes as some of you are more informed than me?

You can add Sunderland, Blackpool, Portsmouth and Charlton to that list. All been PL teams since we were there, all League 1 now. There's a cautionary tale in there somewhere. . 😉

There are also seven or maybe eight now in the Prem that have played league one football in that time. The word of the day I suppose is perspective.

Stats demonstrate what a loyal fanbase we have but also show where we have been as a club.
Over expectation must be tempered by patience and full backing for the team and manager for steady progress over the season.

Despite the slow start there is a steely determination in the performances that has been missing for many a year. The depth of squad should enable this to be maintained over 46 games so keep the faith.
