I was a little worried that everything might already be decided before this weekend's npower Championship climax but for Southampton, West Ham United, Cardiff City and Middlesbrough it's all set to be extremely interesting - and tense - on Saturday lunch time.

I commend West Ham for taking their top two aspirations until the final day but can I realistically see Coventry City beating Southampton at St Mary's? I have to be honest and say no I can't. A draw is a more likely possibility of course, but even then the Hammers would have to beat Hull City by several goals, which is another big ask. I think Southampton will be celebrating promotion to the Premier League this weekend.

While we're discussing the Saints, I learned this week that they've changed their hotel arrangements on away trips this year, allowing players to have their own rooms, rather than sharing twins.

Personally I always preferred to have my own room. As I was somebody that liked to get to sleep early and wake up at the crack of dawn, it wasn't ideal sharing with someone else - especially, if like many players they wanted to stay up late and enjoy a lie-in!

I loved the banter that went on in hotel rooms on away trips but from a rest and recuperation perspective it was better that I was often in a room on my own. Why was I not sharing? If there was an odd number, as the most senior player (in my latter playing days) I'd get first dibs!

As for Southampton's final day opponents Coventry City, the fans will no doubt be devastated at their relegation to npower League 1. In truth, the Sky Blues have struggled for a decade now and possibly had this coming, so I can't say that I'm surprised.

If the finger of blame is going to be pointed at anyone, I think it should head in the board's direction. There has been some obvious mismanagement and financially there have been issues too.

I actually think Andy Thorn has done a decent job in charge of the side under testing circumstances this season. He had to sell his best player and had no money to attract newcomers, so but for a poor start to the campaign they might have stayed up. Since the turn of the year Coventry City haven't been playing too badly at all.

Next season the Sky Blues will have a young side but if the club can find some more stability, and overcome their money worries, they might not stay at that level for too long. Next year might be too soon for them however.

It's also a massive weekend for Cardiff City and Middlesbrough, who travel to Crystal Palace and Watford respectively. With a points advantage the Welshmen are strong favourites to make the play-offs, and I wouldn't bet against them.

I love watching Boro play but their home form hasn't been consistent enough, and on the whole I do believe Cardiff have players who are more equipped to deal with the big occasions. Under pressure I think the Bluebirds can give anyone a difficult game. Just ask Liverpool that.

If, as I expect them to do, Cardiff do make the Play-Offs I think they'll be hard to stop too. They thrive on big games and have the know-how to get the job done.

This week also saw the PFA name it's Championship Team of the Year and I have to confess that I agree with most of the selections.

In goal I do think Adam Federici is unlucky not to have pipped Kelvin Davis to the number one shirt, though. The Reading custodian has been outstanding this year and must have been a close second.

In defence I certainly believe Nathaniel Clyne and Ian Harte merit their spots, while it's hard to argue that Curtis Davies and James Tomkins haven't played very well too.

A midfield quartet of Peter Whittingham, Matt Phillips, Mark Noble and Adam Lallana is blessed with so much flair, and I love watching all four play, but I do feel that Birmingham City's Chris Burke deserves a special mention. He's been magnificent for Chris Hughton this term and having spoken to the Blues' fitness coach he is by all accounts an absolute machine when it comes to the ground he covers during matches.

Finally, I'm convinced the players have got their strike duo spot on. Jay Rodriguez is a seriously good centre forward, and man of the season Rickie Lambert is a shoe-in.

It's been another spectacularly exciting campaign, and remember, it's not over yet.
