    Next season:

    Buy lots of wildly over priced dross in the off season
    Claims of top 4 finish
    Hughton goes after 10 games
    Shearer appointed as saviour
    Finish 2nd last

    Y'know, like usual

    Don't think we have finished 2nd last in the EPL. I honestly think survival will be the main aim but come Xmas mid-table will be a reasonable goal. Ashley has already promised funds to Hughton. Not sure the manager has the bottle to be in EPL but we will have to wait and see.

    What are your thoughts onĀ  the relegation battle ?

    IMO it will stay as it is.

    I think Peterborough, Plymouth and Sheffield Wednesday will go down.

    Wednesday is a huge club to be in division 1.

    Promotion i like Cardiff to get promoted. Play a nice style of football and could be competitive in top flight. They also have playoff experience which could help.

    Cardiff in the EPL - Please God will someone think of the children.

    They ran the Chavs all over SW6 in their cup game and looted a bottle shop outside the ground FFS.

    When they couldnt find any Chavs, they turned on each other

    Cardiff/Swansea in the play-off final at Wembley could be fun.

    No one who has ever been to the old Ninian Park for an away game would want that.

    Truly the most scared I have ever been. Far worse than Leeds or Millwall

    Champions- Newcastle
    Runners Up- West Brom
    Playoff- Notts Forest, Cardiff,
    Swansea, Leicester and Blackpool (Still in contention for playoffs)

    Relegation Threat-Sheffield Wed, Crystal Palace, Watford, Sc**thrope

    Relegated- Plymouth, Peterborough

    It has been a great season. Newcastle are the best team in the Championship and a win at home against Ipswich Town will mean an undefeated home record this season. Chris Hughton manager of the season. Kevin Nolan player of the season. Premiership should watch out the Toon are coming back up.

    Congrats to Leeds who will be in the championship next season.

    Great to see big clubs like Norwich and Leeds in the higher grade.

    Massive lol at the guy who got (rightly) sent off and then had to be dragged away by his own team mates

    Lovely piss take by a Leicester City fan aimed at the guy who missed the penalty in the shoot out against Cardiff.

    The playoff is proof that tickets for sponsors and partners can get f**ked. Embarassing to see the middle few bays almost empty when there are fans that would have given their right testicle to be there
