Ranking the Three EPL Promoted Sides

Bruce and Mackay: Both men have a point to prove.

There are many things a manager has to take into account when preparing his side for life in a new division. For most teams the transition from the Championship to the Premier League is rocky at best, and at worst, over before it’s even begun.

Does the attack need reinforcing, or will that take necessary funds away from the defence? Is this player good enough to compete at the top of the football league, will he need some back-up or should he just be shown the door and a replacement brought in?

These are some of the questions that the managers of the promoted sides will be pondering, and to try and make some sense of how things are going so far we’ve analysed what each manager needs to do and how they have been going about it.

The ratings are in comparison to the other two promoted teams, not the rest of the Premier League i.e. Hull’s attack is compared to those of Cardiff and Crystal Palace, rather than Manchester City, which would be rather unfair.
