The problem with the Premier League

I'm watching Match Of The Day - most enjoyable. The relegation battle is still open, other than for Derby who are way down. But of Fulham, Bolton, Birmingham and Reading, it's hard to know who deserves to stay up, because in a way, they all do.
Looking at the Championship, only really West Brom show any signs of being good enough to be promoted. It seems that other than Derby, the Premier League really does have the best 20 teams in the country at the moment. The Championship is therefore weak.
Unfortunately, 3 teams swap position, not 1, so next year the Premier League will be of slightly lower quality, and I think West Brom will be the only promoted team with any chance of staying up.
This is all fairly irrelevant to life in general, but I thought I'd mention it.
