After an exciting summer for England at the World Cup, domestic football returns this coming weekend. Twenty-four teams will play forty-six games each in a division which is always notoriously close; while remaining immensely difficult to earn promotion from.

Sometimes, recently relegated Premier League sides tend to go into free-fall for a few seasons. However, this year, things could well be different. West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City have both had pretty impressive transfer windows, while keeping their core players together in an attempt to return at the first time of asking. If I had to choose winners, I'd opt for The Potters, but The Baggies will be hot on their heels throughout the long and tough campaign.

From then on out, it's pretty much take your pick. The Championship is filled with quality. If you make a good start, you could well be in the hunt come next May. Begin poorly, though, your campaign could already be over. I look towards Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, Hull City and Leeds United as the best of the rest, but who knows how things will pan out?

It should be a season that'll once again be filled with intrigue, shocks and no doubt surprises. Hang on to your hats, folks, because it's going to be yet another bumpy Championship ride during 2018/19. Let's give you the low-down on each team...
