Who will be relegated in 2016/17?


#41

I’m not sad to see Hull go but I wouldn’t have minded them staying up due to Marco Silva. He impressed me since joining the club and really improved them, they were a shambles when he took them over and already looked dead certs for relegation. He’ll still get credit for that and could still have a very good career so it’s not disastrous for him, but I would have quite liked to see him remain in the Premier league and see if he could build on his progress.


#42

hopefully a fun northern club comes up, as well as newcastle.


#43

Well it won’t be with Hull but I think he’ll get a Premier League job within the next year, the next mid-table manager job that comes up - probably Southampton.


#44

Well he still has to do the A1 to get to Newcastle


#45

*she :wink:


#46

3 dull northern clubs out (we usually struggle out there), 1 northern in (Newcastle where we always do well). Not bad in the end!


#47

I actually like Newcastle because it’s always felt like a big club


#48

If a lower-to-mid Prem manager gets sacked, I think he’ll be one of the first people on the short list.

I agree with you, I’d have liked to see more of him.


#49

Silva will be at Watford or Southampton next season.


#50

bit of a drop down from Man City


#51

Big stadium doesn’t equal big club.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like Newcastle. I don’t go to a lot of away games, but that is one I always make sure I go to. They’re a bigger club than some, for sure, but big? How do we decide that? Villa and Forest are European champions, Newcastle are not.


#52

I don’t mean big as in loads of trophies and great success but they are just a well recognized team, a big fan base and just feel like a premiership team should be, hard to explain but they’ve always felt like a big club to me :slight_smile:


#53

Yeah I think I know what you mean. They’re certainly more likeable anyway, I was quite sad when they went down.


#54

Newcastle stopped being a big club after they sold Harris and Munez in the same window


#55

haha that’s the film goal isn’t it?


#56

Blew the final in the sequel too with a 2 goal start. Fucking bottlers.


#57

Watford, imo. Mazzarri won’t survive beyond the summer.


#58

I cant remember us losing at Hull and I’m pretty sure the last time we lost at Sunderland was like 2000.


#59

Yeah, but still hate playing them.
No, we lost against Sunderland away in 2009.
