The Championship season ended yesterday. The big news, of course, is that Newcastle are the champions, once again returning to the Premier League after a single season in the second flight. Brighton will join them. The third team will be decided via the playoff, which features Fulham v Reading in one semifinal tie and Huddersfield v Wednesday in the other.

For you English readers, what playoff team do you most want to see back up? Who has the best away-day experience?
