A merry christmas at your club?
Rochdale might be perennial Christmas turkeys but I reckon their supporters might just be the happiest in the Football League right now.
The Dale have been in the basement division since 1974 but it has been a cracker of a season so far, with Keith Hill's side top of League Two and 10 points clear of the play-off zone.
Hill has done a terrific job and, after reaching the play-offs for the last two seasons, his team are well placed to go one better this time.
Their fixture against Shrewsbury last weekend was the only League two match to survive the weather and plenty of rival managers were at the chilly surrounds of Spotland to watch Rochdale's 4-0 demolition of Shrewsbury.
Hill sounded bullish afterwards, throwing down the classic 'catch us if you can' challenge - but much could depend on what happens during the January transfer window.
Chris Dagnall, for example, has 12 league goals and could yet become a belated present for a club from a higher division.
Rochdale have had plenty to celebrate so far
I know what Bournemouth want for Christmas - the Football League to lift their transfer embargo. Eddie Howe has worked wonders with his threadbare squad, and the Cherries are second in the League Two table. However, their 5-0 thrashing at Morecambe suggests they might be running out of steam.
Rotherham fans can celebrate Christmas confident that the loss of Mark Robins has not derailed their promotion push, while I reckon Dagenham & Redbridge, Chesterfield, Morecambe, Aldershot and Accrington (still in business after a major scare) should all be delighted with their current standings.
The football club that forgot to take the turkey out of the freezer this year is undoubtedly Darlington.
I still cannot work out why they jettisoned Colin Todd, an experienced and wily manager, for Steve Staunton. Not another vanity appointment by a young and inexperienced chairman seduced by a relatively big name?
Darlo have eight points and a goal difference of minus 35 after 21 games - and are 11 points from safety. I fear that next season they can look forward to showcasing arguably the finest stadium the Blue Square Premier has ever seen.
And how full is Santa's sack at Notts County? Not very, I suspect.
Their supporters must feel a bit like a child who was promised a bike but given a crayon set. (It happened to me once and I still haven't really recovered). Certainly the big talk of the previous summer has started to sound extremely hollow.
No such problems for supporters of Leeds, who look to be marching ho, ho, ho the way to promotion from League One.
Leeds look like absolute, total, complete, cast-iron certainties for promotion from League One. There is absolutely no chance that they will not be playing Championship football next season. Top young manager, quality squad and plenty of good revenue streams.
What could possibly go wrong?
This season's battle to get out of League One is shaping up to be a ferocious contest, with more than the normal number of big boys hoping to take a sizeable step towards where they 'belong'.
Full credit to Phil Parkinson, who has kept Charlton firmly on the heels of Leeds, while Paul Lambert has ensured the early-season shambles at Norwich is a fading memory.
Huddersfield are busy trying to prove that you can win things with kids, and it will be interesting to see how well their young and inexperienced side lasts as the lengthy campaign wears on.
And who would write off Southampton, who started the season on minus 10 and failed to win for seven League One fixtures but have hit top form over recent months and the play-offs are now just nine points away.
Rickie Lambert's scoring ratio - 16 goals in 21 league appearances - is starting to suggest he might be worth £1m Saints paid for him.
Brighton manager Gustavo Poyet still has a lot of work to do if he isn't to end up looking like a budin ingles. His tenure started with victory at Southampton but his team have lost five of their six league matches since and spend Christmas Day in the relegation zone.
There is plenty for Poyet to think about this Christmas
Their situation is nowhere near as perilous as Stockport County, who are rock-bottom, nine points from safety and in administration. They are so short of money that their bench is nowadays packed with youth-team players and they face losing their key assets in January. What's more they face losing their training ground.
Going bust is a real possibility and they, more than any other Football League club, are in need of some festive charity.
There will not be any festive concerns about the busy yuletide programme for Brian Laws (Sheffield Wednesday), Paul Sturrock (Plymouth Argyle) and Brendan Rodgers (Reading) this year. The trio can all tuck into turkey at their leisure after recently receiving the heave ho.
Supporters of quite a few Championship sides will spend Christmas mulling over how the first half of the season has been underwhelming.
Ipswich have had a campaign to forget so far, while the appointment of Gordon Strachan at Middlesbrough has hardly revitalised their season. Boro were one point off top when they sacked Gareth Southgate. They are now 20 behind Newcastle.
Given that most soap operas put on a festive special, QPR supporters could be forgiven for expecting more dramatic developments at their club, while Watford fans have already received their not insubstantial Christmas gift after Lord Ashcroft shelled out £4.88m to stave off the threat of administration.
Newcastle supporters might want a self-help book that helps them to come to terms with good news. After what seems like years of chaos, they are riding high in the Championship, while West Brom are also looking a strong candidate for an instant Premier League return.
I saw Nottingham Forest demolish Preston on Saturday and reckon they may well finish the season promoted. They have so many attacking options, a solid defence and in Billy Davies a manager who knows all about succeeding in the Championship.
The lofty status of Cardiff and Swansea should ensure a happy Christmas in Wales while Leicester fans must surely be pleased to be sixth.
But I reckon Blackpool fans should rejoice as much as any other Championship supporters.
In an era of largely bland managerial comments, boss Ian Holloway is always great value, with his steady stream of one-liners, mixed metaphors and convoluted analogies. If his time at the club turned sour, he could always get a gig doing stand-up at the Winter Gardens.
But it is not just his chat. His first season in charge has seen the Seasiders reach their highest league position since the early 1970s and the former Bristol Rovers, QPR, Plymouth and Leicester boss has breathed new life into a club that reaches far into the past for a glimpse of its glory days.
Blackpool sit just three points off the play-off zone this Christmas, and for that I think their fans should be truly thankful.
I would like to take this chance to wish you all a happy Christmas - and feel free to let me know what football-orientated presents you would like.
