The £180m game

Even if they are relegated straight back to the Championship, the winner of the play off final between Hull City and Sheffield Wednesday is likely to be £180m better off explains sports lawyer Daniel Geey.

The rewards from promotion set up serious tensions in the Championship.   In the last published set of figures for 2014-15, half the clubs in the division had wage bills more than 100 per cent of turnover.

The Championship has accounted for 37 per cent of all dismissals of managers over the past two campaigns.   This season's tally of 18 dismissals was only beaten by 20 last season.
