Favourites to be champions

Charlton are favourites to be champions of the Championship next season according to Bluesq who are offering odds of 6-1 on the Addicks. They are ahead of the Baggies at 7/1, the Blades at 15/2, Wolves at 8/1 and Southampton at 10/1.

Personally I don't think is necessarily good news as it could add to excessive expectations that Steve Brown has already warned about. It's not going to be easy, particularly if the squad isn't strengthened some more. The midfield still looks suspect with its mixture of honest endeavour (Holland), injury proneness (Reid) and under achievement (Ambrose).

Certainly we'll have to do better than taking ex Midland Alliance players. Quorn's windfall from Charlton is now reported at a cool half a million which they are going to use to turn their ground into a stadium. Tally ho!
