Millwall, Bolton and Sheffield United promoted from League 1 - the only team worth worrying about there is Sheffield, I guess? But at least there is no Middlesbrough, Bournemouth or Southampton coming up this year. 

Hull, Middlesbrough and Sunderland coming down don't fill me with dread either. The only team I can see troubling the top two would be Sunderland - though admittedly it's hard to know for sure before all the transfer activity of the summer is finished.

Bit of a blooper there, Rhys

Nevertheless, I agree......and can't see Millwall who finished 6th in League 1 and 13 points off the top two ripping up the Championship.

Not sure that Sunderland could do a Newcastle, but as you say, the division will be weaker.

Agreed. Not the strongest selection of sides, but I'd back Sheffield United to be up there next season.

There is a possibility of a Sheffield top two......

Oops! Don't know why I get the two mixed up! I'll edit it now

Of the new teams in the league, I'd say Hull (if they retain Marco Silva) and (as Gloves said) Sheffield United could be the ones to keep an eye on.

I think Silva is being targeted by Watford and Porto so doubt he will be in charge. Warnock's boyhood team are Sheff Utd, so that will be an interesting game. Particularly as he managed them when they last got into the Prem and were only relegated because they finished just below West Ham who were fielding Tebet and Mascherano illegally. So I would imagine he's still popular with their fans

No, apologies as I misspelled Tibet. West Ham were docked points for fielding the entire population of Tibet with the Dalai Lama as Captain
