Championship latest transfer news for 2017 – 2018 and Beyond

  • Sat, 22 Sep 2018 18:18:00 +0000: Middlesbrough lack cutting edge as Swansea hold off first-half flurry - Championship | The Guardian

    Efficiency is always commendable but, in a football context at least, it pays the greatest dividends when combined with cold-blooded ruthlessness.

    If there can be no doubt that Middlesbrough have the first part of that equation sorted – Tony Pulis’s wonderfully stable side are still to concede a Championship goal at home this season and are behind the leaders, Leeds, only on goal difference – their final ball has a nasty habit of letting them down.

  • Sat, 22 Sep 2018 17:35:42 +0000: Football League: Birmingham inflict first league defeat on Leeds United - Championship | The Guardian
    • Che Adams brace causes Marcelo Bielsa’s first league defeat
    • Peterborough turn it around to go top of League One

    Despite enjoying over 70% of possession at Elland Road, Leeds lost 2-1 to Birmingham and their undefeated league record under Marcelo Bielsa in the process thanks to two first-half goals from Che Adams. Goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell should have kept out the opener as he was beaten at the near post but he could not do anything about the second, a counter-attack which resulted in a cool Adams finish. Ezgjan Alioski gave Leeds hope with five minutes left on the clock but it was not enough to maintain their undefeated record but they do remain top as Middlesbrough could only draw 0-0 at home against Swansea.

  • Wed, 19 Sep 2018 10:00:15 +0000: Rotherham’s Paul Warne: 'Players we sign have to be amazing people' - Championship | The Guardian

    Paul Warne is hoping that his values and the squad’s hard work will help the club stay in the Championship

    It is almost two years since Paul Warne was lounging in the foyer of Rotherham United’s stadium when the chief operating officer walked in and gently suggested to the fitness coach that a swift costume change might be necessary given that he was about to be named the caretaker manager following Kenny Jackett’s surprising resignation. “I was literally sitting in an elf’s outfit,” Warne says, laughing. “It was for a promotional video for the club shop. I’d gone from probably one of the best elves this side of the North Pole to having that dream taken off me and becoming the manager.”
