Ipswich Town has enjoyed a perfect start to life back in the Championship after being promoted from League One last season, sitting safely in second position after five games.

The Tractor Boys started the season by winning three straight games, defeating Sunderland, Stoke City, and Queens Park Rangers. They also advanced to the third round of the EFL Cup, where they will play Wolverhampton Wanderers of the Premier League at Portman Road.

After stepping down from his position as Manchester United’s first-team coach eighteen months ago, Kieran McKenna has already made the former UEFA Cup winners a force again by bringing in elite players like Brandon Williams on loan and Axel Tuanzebe on a free transfer from Old Trafford.

Ipswich is just one point behind league-leading Preston North End, whom they will play in less than a month. Ipswich has won four of its last five games and has only lost once, in a thrilling 4-3 loss to Leeds United.

Ipswich Town presently has a market value of just under £28 million, which measures the worth of the complete squad, which makes the team’s start even more amazing. On Transfermarkt’s ranking, only Huddersfield Town, Sheffield Wednesday, Plymouth Argyle, and Rotherham United are worse than McKenna’s team.

With a valuation of £14.4 million, Rotherham has the lowest market value in the Championship, barely over half that of Ipswich Town, but the Millers are now above the relegation zone.

The most expensive teams in England’s second division are Leicester City’s ($217 million), Southampton’s ($213 million), and Leeds United’s ($180 million).

the top of the desk Preston has the ninth-lowest market value in the division at £39.1 million. With astronomical market valuations, Preston and Ipswich Town are above all three of the recently relegated teams (who received parachute payments).

Over the course of a 46-game season, a lot can change, but it’s great to see two vibrant teams compete against titans with market valuations of over 10 times as much who have received parachute payments for their troubles after being relegated from the top division.
