Football League 2016-2017 Mid Season Predictions

Three months into the Football season and it is time for our revised Football League 2016-2017 Season predictions. Can we improve on our preseason thoughts. Thankfully the results are in May, and by then no one cares what we have selected. Unless you plonked some street on our tips.

The Football League 2016-2017 season is full swing, and we at The Gurgler are loving every minute of it. Especially with the new Bein Sports deal this season.

We have already provided our Preview of the Season before it started, but that’s loads harder than predicting winners 3 months after the season has begun.

How are our pre season tips going? Well, read for yourself, we can’t be bothered. And we didn’t even do League One and Two. Poor form. Or are our tips poor form? Who knows.

Last year we provided a weekly update on the Football League in the hope that someone else in Australia would be interested.

This year for the Football League 2016-2017 season, we attempted to introduce slightly more interesting things to accompany our weekly Football League bit.

First we introduced a Top 5 of things to get through the boredom.

Then slightly more interesting things like, Best Mascots of Leagues One and Two, Best Mascots of the Championship, Australian Players in the Football League. But it gets harder to come up with slightly interesting and amusing things each week.

But ultimately no one reads them, and that’s OK. It’s not as exciting as anything about Michael Clarke.

We’re just happy that at least someone read our Football League piece published by Fox Sports last season. In which we coincidentally tipped the three teams that would go up. Lucky us.

So, this will be the final Football League weekly for a while. Now and again when something interesting pops up we’ll put finger to keyboard – like the upcoming FA Cup first round, or when the Football League 2016-2017 playoffs come around.

It would be rude of us not to pass on our thoughts about who will be the winners and losers for the Football League 2016-2017. And for this weekend too. So here are our tips for the Football League 2016-2017 season winners and losers.
