How did my Football League Predictions go?
So now the Football League season is done with apart from the play offs here's a little look back at how my picks went.
In the Championship from the ante post picks I had Wolves to win it, they were nowhere near. I also had Derby and Middlesbrough to go up. For the drop in my ante post picks none of them hit. In January I had Derby, Hull and Ipswich to be promoted, of course only Derby or Hull can do it. I actually think Sheffield Wednesday will end up winning the play offs. For the drop I had Bolton, MK Dons and Rotherham so I hit on a couple of them.
In League One from the ante post I faired pretty badly having Shrewsbury to go up they nearly went down, and Doncaster to go up who did go down. Wigan to go down, they ended up as Champions. Who cares about League One anyways!? :)
In January I got Blackpool correct to go down. Some smarter picks came with Burton I had as second and Millwall to win the play offs. I also hit on Crewe and Colchester to go down.
In League Two nothing in the ante post hit, but in January, Oxford United did go up and Portsmouth or Plymouth could go up. I got York going down correct. So the lower leagues were a bit hit and miss.
In January I had Manchester United to win the FA Cup, which could hit. In the pre season I had Manchester City for the League Cup and Real Madrid for the Champions League. So not too bad with them picks look out for my Premier League review and Euro 2016 preview coming soon.
