The storylines are interesting and funny, and their results just as important for fans. We'll be uncovering it all, and treating the Football League with the podcasting coverage it deserves.

Rank #4: #64: Matters of the EFL Variety

Podcast cover
Read more
Wolves champions. Sunderland relegated.

Here are the questions answered:
Gab: There's two prices already out on 18/19 League One promotion - if you had to take a stab in the dark on Sunderland at 2/1 or Accrington at 7/1…

Freddie:
How do you think Accrington Stanley do in League One next season? Will their momentum take them to a top 10 finish or above or will they struggle as an even smaller fish in a big pond?

Wigan promoted:
Oli Walker:
How do you think Blackburn and Wigan will fare in the Championship next season? How do you think they compare to the Sheff Utd 16/17 side?
What is the best way to approach our remaining meaningless games? Rest key players for playoffs, experiment with alternative systems or get back winning for momentum? I know huddersfield rested players last season…
Freddie:
What teams that will be relegated from each division do you think will be the best equipped to bounce straight back to the league they were relegated from?

Mark Lynch:
Which young loan PL players have stood out to you? As a Spurs fan, particularly interested in your thoughts on Onomah

Harry Smith:
What does Paul Clement need to do over the summer at Reading (assuming we stay up)? Following on from that, what would a good target for next season be? Personally think top half would be a good finish considering the deadwood in the current squad.
Ben Travers:
Most inevitable summer transfer. I'm going Oztumer to Brentford

Trayton Miller:
A bit difficult to answer on a sound-based medium, but I would love to know which kits were your favorite from this EFL season?

Freddie
Who is the team you’ve most enjoyed watching this season (George’s bias excluded ), who has been the least enjoyable and who has been the most frustrating to watch?

League two autos race - Notts, Exeter and Wycombe - all have 2 games left and 2 points between them? Who gets the last place and whose left to battle it out in the playoffs?
And then who do oh make favourite for the playoffs?
