Who would you most like to see relegated out of these two? Tough one for me. Part of me would like to see the Toon go down, due to Ashley and his mismanagement of this club, while claiming to be a fan. The other would like to see Hull down, due to their clown of an owner insistent on trying to drive through a name change to 'Tigers', going against all their history and fans' protest (interesting to see Bruce side with the owner).

Ideally, I'd be happy to see 'em both down, but if I had to choose, I'd say Newcastle. More likely to be Hull, though.

Would like Newcastle to go down on one hand, but on the other they would romp the league next year.

Got to want Hull to come down.

Does McShane still play for them?

Whilst I'd like to see Newcastle go down to pi$$ on Ashley's money making machine antics I would feel for the fans who turn up week after week to watch a 'giant' constantly fail to win anything (blimey, Wigan and Portsmouth have won more silverware in recent times). It must be tough supporting your club as some fat git takes the pi$$ out of you as he squeezes every last penny out you and does just enough to keep your club in the PL to keep the cash rolling in.

Think both sides will probably lose, Newcastle a more attractive game but think they will bounce back quickly so hence why rather Hull drop.

Would they, though? Fulscum no doubt thought they would, this season!

Don't really mind who comes down - new away ground for me either way. Newcastle (Ashley) need their comeuppance though. Hull will be back where they belong - in the Football League.

That is my thought-a lot of there so called " better" players would leave and they would have to get a few in-would be more difficult than you would imagine.

Saying that-they did romp it last time they were in the Championship.

Hull will be the weakest in the Championship but Newcastle is the best day/night out.

... and McShane :mad1: is still at Hull and probably a cert to keep for the Championship.

How would you describe the area around the old Boothferry Park if you were being asked to tell the truth ?

That's like judging Brentford and it's environs by asking me to descirbe the Green Dragon Estate.

If the last time you were in Hull was to visit Boothferry Park I can understand your sentiments.

I can only go by what I witnessed years ago and it was grim. If it's changed happy days, are you telling me I'm wrong and it's now like St George's Hills or Millionaires row? Sorry but you had me running at Fine Ale

In the wrong
Never been to Hull so them please.

Think grim Northern sh*t*le like Middlesboro, Wigan, Blackburn or Oldham and you'll be on track.

He's right. When there once,not for footballing reasons though, all the chippies in the area we were in were closing at half five in the evening.

Hull please I still haven't forgiven that ginger ****** McShane

Oi oi oi! None of that please.
Do you live in Hull ?
I lived there for 4 years working up there, not the 'prettiest' city, but good people up there and a massive Hull City following. KC is a decent stadium too, would be pleased to play them again, remember seeing us lose up there when Stuart Taylor scored an outrageous goal from the half way line.

Yes I am a very happy resident since 2011. It has dodgy council estates like many other cities but it has a lovely old town, marina and many other hidden jewels. Plus 30 mins to great beaches and beautiful countryside.

Everyone who vists me here leaves pleasently surprised as they discover a city beyond all the usual stereotypes.

No it's not utopia but it's a good place to live.

Of course not. It's a forgotten city that's only started dragging itself up off it's knees in the past decade.

It's not on the scale of Leeds, Liverpool or Newcastle but way, way better than the places you mentioned.

Fine, ale pubs. Not fine ale pubs. If you like the fizzy stuff then head to Princes Ave and you'll have every lager you could ever wish for.

Ok so if it's changed and better than last time I was there I take it back but trust me it was grim back in the day.

We really, really, really don't want Newcastle to be in our division next year. :( I have a suspicion that Hull could nosedive if they went down.

I can imagine it was then if you were just visiting Boothferry Park.

If Hull come down I will write a pub & city guide so all us Bees can enjoy a good weekend.

Even people who haven't visited for 5 years note how much has changed in that time.

Really? I'd love it, love it if they came down. Let's face it, if they're crap then...they're crap.

It was Boothferry Park and happy to drink lager anywhere you recommend next season.

I'd fancy a trip to Newcastle so don't care who comes down. Better for my city if they stay up but Allam is a ****** that deserves relegation.

They could outspend everyone. They'll be favourites for promotion. I'd rather have someone who might be sh*t.

Have never been to either so am on a winner either way but have always wanted to do st James Park plus I have a dislike for Newcastle that I can't quite put my finger on (I think it is how deluded their fans are)

Newcastle is one of the worst grounds to visit as away supporter so I hope they are for the drop!
