Hull City Relegated To The Championship; Slutsky set to take over

Recommended Posts

If Silva stays I think they've got a good chance of bouncing straight back. He did a decent job with very limited investment, that result against Sunderland last week was the killer blow.

If he goes, I think they'll struggle.

Silva won't stay, he'd be mad to.

Until we sort ourselves out properly I hope we don't come back up, we've had our go three times in the past 10 seasons and haven't managed to sustain ourselves, this being the most pointless excursion in the top flight. Give another club a go. We fully deserved to be relegated, there was a brief flicker of hope but losing home and away to Sunderland is unforgivable. I don't think there was much between us and Swansea, but they won games when it really mattered and we completely caved in, unable to cope with a pressure we never expected to have.

Double relegation in the cards?

I don't think they will bounce back at all. I think some players will be cleaned out and they will dwell in the championship mid table for the foreseable future.

They only have themselves to blame after the last two defeats. With their current transfer policy I can't see them coming up for some time either. They need to be restructured at the top to become the side they've previously shown they can be.

I think neither Hull or Sunderland will come close to bouncing. Middlesbrough possibly but I think this is the least threatening relegated trio on a while. Teams like Villa, Norwich and Derby will be licking their lips.

Don't worry, their lips will fall off by December.

Depends what mood Mr Candy Crush is in this time around.

Can see Rowett turning Derby into a consistent threat, he's a good choice for them and I can't see him letting them slack off and fade away as they have done in the past.

I think Villa will win it.

I don't think Silva staying actually guarantees them a good chance of coming back up. We've seen a short period of time from him, they've looked impressive but you'd imagine the more impressive performers will all be moving on, and attracting those kinds of players in the lower leagues isn't as easy. 

I think he'll leave anyway, his stock is high at the moment and that will probably see him get another prem job when one club panics or a decent profile job abroad. It'd be interesting if he did stay though, they were very good at home, rape from Spurs aside.

I always like Sam Clucas when I see him.

That would probably be a good appointment for a Championship side, he has decent pedigree. Always a risk appointing a manager in the Championship who's never managed in that league before though.

How have they managed to convince him?!

I like the way they aren't going down the usual suspect route, and have to admit his pedigree is impressive, like Silva's. 

He must be a bit mental to come to us.

Wonder if he fancies linking up with Musa again. Could've done you a straight swap for Maguire.

How has Ola Aina been for you lot so far? 

Alright, very difficult to play in a struggling team and look anything more than that. Started brightly but has dipped, like most of the team, slutsky tried to blame Nigeria but too much pressure for a 21 year old really. He’ll play every game though; Odubajo is seemingly dead.
