    The thread is about Championship players, Leedsunited ;)

    Agree with Bodde, obviously, although not until next season again now. Doyle, both Hunts and Kebe at Reading destroyed us between them, SEB & Iwelumo were both excellent for Wolves and Kevin Phillips seems to score every week for Birmingham.

    Didn't think Kightly or Jarvis did much for Wolves when we played them, they just hit it long but had the firepower up front to make the most of it.

    Can't say I've been overly impressed with anyone else, even Paul Smith managed to have a poor game against us for once. Notable mentions I suppose to Wade Elliott at Burnley, who looked a good player, and Williamson at Watford, as usual. Shame he's a complete ******** though.

    Kicked Leon Britton in the ribs while he was lying on the floor when he was playing for Mansfield.

    In the same game that Isyden Christie got sent off for biting one of our players. Their team also contained Liam Lawrence, so suffice to say they weren't the most likeable of sides!

    Aleksander Tunchev: easily the best player in League 1. Delph, Mackail-Smith, Beckford, Lambert whoever Tunchev is easily the best good knows how we managed to get him down here.

    Leicester has the best squad in league 1 tbf.

    ok ok fair enough allthough Tunchev is still better then any championship player in my opinion. Hopefully not injured for 2 long!

    Best championship players well i'd say Chris Eagles & Victor Moses Probably

    Eagles is one of the best, true, but it seems like Kevin Doyle and Stephen Hunt are pretty much putting everyone else to shame right now, particularly Doyle, who's on track to score an insane amount of goals by season's end.

    I still think Seb Larsson is perhaps the most talented player in the division, but he hasn't been as productive this season as wingers like Hunt & Eagles.

    James McFaddon is as good as anything in the Championship.

    But has he displayed it this season? I reckon Kevin Phillips has arguably had a better season thus far than McFadden.

    McFadden and Phillips looked a class above against us. The rest of the Birmingham team weren't great, but when you can bring Phillips, Jerome and Quedrue off the bench, you must be on to something!

    Ebanks-Blake, Kightly and for me the best fullback in this Division Kevin Foley.

    Does James Beattie still play for Sheffield United? Sorry I'm not too familiar with the Championship.

    Yes, and he's got 12 goals in 23 games so far this season.

    Kevin Phillips has to be a championship legend by now. Why didn't he move up with West Brom at the end of last season? Seems like they really could use him..

    I've wondered the same thing; Phillips has been prolific in the Championship for the last few years, but I've found that many Championship strikers struggle to maintain a good goalscoring form once making the move up to the Premiership.

    Phillips is also about 35 years old, so perhaps West Brom wanted to go younger.

    Phillips probably didn't want to fight for his place and serve as a lone striking donkey when he could score for fun in the Colaship. At 35 I'd be worrying about having fun and winning something at 2nd level rather than be miserable in the Prem.

    So he's doing pretty well then.

    Yes. He was actually just the subject of a rumor in the BBC's Gossip column the other day - Fulham & Hull were rumored to be interested.

    I think he's Premiership quality, so it's only a matter of time before he moves back up, IMO.

    Speak of the devil, it appears James Beattie is on his way to Stoke City in a £2.5m move.

    http://www.goal.com/en/news/1520/st...0/stoke-citys-bid-for-james-beattie-confirmed

    I'll be honest, if I was a Blades fan, I'd be upset. Beattie is crucial for Sheffield United's promotion hopes, and the club paid £4m for him only 16 months ago. Watford sold Marlon King for over £4m last year...I would think Beattie would be worth at least that to Sheffield United.

    Darius Henderson should be capable of ultimately stepping in for the club, as he's a proven goal scorer in the Championship, but Beattie is definitely a better player.

    Darius was always a bit of a lump when he was at Reading. Great if you could plant the ball on his head 6 yards out, but he had the mobility of a sack of coal and controlled the ball like it was a freshly greased weasel.

    It was no surprise at all that he was hopeless in the premiership.
