The new EFL Championship season is here, and this Friday we see newly promoted Luton Town take on Jonathan Woodgate’s Middlesbrough in front of a packed out Kenilworth Road to kick off the 2019/20 season.
As always seems to be the case in the English second tier, this is a fixture that has a number of interesting narratives that run alongside it.
It’s Graeme Jones’ first competitive match as Luton manager, can he continue Mick Harford’s superb work from last season? Can the Jonathan Woodgate and Robbie Keane management combo deliver the goods at Boro? Can Luton cope with the losses of James Justin and Jack Stacey? You could rattle off so many more.
It’s not just this fixture that provokes interesting scenarios and questions, but we see it every single week in the Championship, and it’s why it’s renowned as one of the most entertaining leagues in the world.
How will Phillip Cocu fare in his first job in England with Derby County? Can Sabri Lamouchi be the man to guide Nottingham Forest back to the Premier League for the first time since 1999? Will Marcelo Bielsa get his team motoring after last year’s play-off heartbreak? It’s set to be a fascinating season.
The Premier League may have the best players, the money, and the biggest stadiums but nothing can compare to the raw passion and entertainment that is routinely displayed in the Championship. Nottingham Forest 5-5 Aston Villa, a result in the Championship from last season, need anything else be said?
It is a league that deserves just as much recognition and coverage as the top-flight in England, and this is where Football League World has stepped in. Delivering news as it happens, exclusive content, opinionated analysis and more, the site caters for the underserved EFL community.
