Les Outsiders : Les Saints espèrent renaître

Sheffield Wednesday host Southampton this evening to kick off the Championship season

Southampton and Sheffield Wednesday: A Tale of Contrasting Fortunes

Southampton and Sheffield Wednesday, two clubs with contrasting histories, will meet in the Championship curtain-raiser. While Southampton has spent the past decade in the Premier League, Sheffield Wednesday has been absent from the top flight since the turn of the century. Last season, Southampton finished bottom of the Premier League with just six wins, while Wednesday finished their League One campaign on 96 points but failed to secure automatic promotion. The Owls’ dramatic semi-final win over Peterborough, where they overturned a 0-4 deficit, was one of the most unbelievable games of the season. As the two sides meet, Southampton is favored for promotion, while Wednesday faces an uphill battle.

Uncertainty Surrounds Vera Pauw’s Future as Irish Manager

Vera Pauw’s future as the Irish women’s national team manager is uncertain, with assistant manager Tom Elmes being the favorite to take over if Pauw doesn’t continue in charge. Elmes, who was appointed as the assistant manager in November 2021, has experience as the Irish U16 girls’ boss and had a successful spell at Wexford Youths. Eileen Gleeson, who previously worked alongside Pauw, is also a contender for the position. Phil Neville, recently relieved of his duties as Inter Miami boss, and Colin Bell, who masterminded Germany’s exit from the Women’s World Cup, are also potential candidates. The next appointment will be crucial for the development of women’s football in Ireland.

Katie Taylor Seeks Redemption in Rematch Against Chantelle Cameron

Undisputed lightweight world champion Katie Taylor is set to face Chantelle Cameron in a rematch on November 25. Taylor suffered her only professional defeat against Cameron in May, but she has been training relentlessly and is confident of victory in the rematch. Cameron, the current multi-belt super lightweight champion, is known for her powerful punches and undefeated professional record. The fight is expected to take place at a heavier weight as Taylor aims to regain her belts. Taylor enters the rematch as the underdog, but her determination and skill make her a formidable opponent.

Predictions for the Championship Season

Leicester, Leeds, and Southampton are all looking to bounce back after disappointing seasons. Rotherham, on the other hand, may struggle after losing key player Ogbene to Luton. A treble bet on Leeds and Southampton to be promoted and Rotherham to be relegated offers enticing odds of 30/1. The Championship season promises excitement and surprises, and fans can look forward to thrilling matches and intense competition.
