I was going to do this after the weekend, but I knew there was a second round of fixtures, and suspected that there might be some action at the top part of the Championship. Whoop. Huddersfield Town led the Championship after six games, with a four point advantage.
That has been whittled down to just one now, but don’t lose all hope. The point I wanted to make is that making a great start is only one way of doing well, and may equally be a precursor to a collapse. Nobody knows yet.
Sure, Town have been playing well, and nobody (since the second tier became the Championship) has earned more than 16 points in the first six games, but there have been a wide range of fortunes later in the season. In short, it tends to bode well to start well, but there are no guarantees.
