Only five days now until relegation is decided, Newcastle supporters are in shock at how their club has managed to put themselves on the brink of disaster but how are Hull fans taking it?
Have the City fans any expectation of getting out of trouble and what do they think of Newcastle United’s position?
I had a look at some Hull City messageboards, including HullCityIndependent to get a flavour of how the Steve Bruce fanclub are feeling ahead of the big day:
‘Had we taken four points off a workmanlike but basically poor Burnley we’d be sat where Leicester are now, but we’re not – we’ve a team with too many big time Charlies in it and a manager who has performed woefully this season.’
‘Well the good news is De Gea might be out injured. The bad news is their sub keeper only played 500 games for Barcelona.’
‘How committed will Harper be, knowing that every save he makes could send Newcastle down?’
‘Or 1-1 in injury time and we get a corner, Harper goes up the field and smashes in the winner to send down his beloved Newcastle, now that would be funny! Wonder what the odds are???’
‘The club is deflated and rotten from top to bottom. We will go down with a whimper and lose 3-0.
I wonder if Livermore has had any death threats yet?’
‘I watched the spuds game and did we miss some chances…gives us hope against (Manchester) United.
Luck has to change at sometime. We might have been poor in some games and pi**ed points away in others (keeping errors/missed chances) but where there s life, there is hope. Newcastle continue to shoot themselves in the c*ck.’
‘Imagine it’s 1-1 in injury time and Tom Hundredstone smashes a 25 yard screamer into the top corner while Newcastle are drawing with West Ham. Huddlestone has to do something this season. He cannot go a full season doing nothing can he?’
‘Us or the Geordies, us home to Man Utd them playing a team in claret and blue….spooky.’
‘Yeh but we didn’t have to win that day.’
‘The guy next to me at work is a Newcastle fan. I’ve enjoyed reminding him of the 2009 finalé quite a lot over the years (when allegedly they were more deserving to stay up instead of us). I don’t expect it but it would be absolutely funny as **** if we did it to them again!!
We have also had several discussions about our respective chairmen recently. He was slagging off Mike Ashley but was astounded when I said I’d prefer Ashley over Allam. Ridiculous but true.’
‘Where’s Damien Duff when you need him?’
‘I predict city win 1 nil Jella (Jelavic) in the last minute just as the Geordies are dancing with joy thinking they’re staying up – cue mass demos in Gateshead all night Sunday.’
