On Wednesday we asked Newcastle fans who they would like to see win the Championship play-offs.

It is arguably the hardest four team showdown that there has ever been to call, none of the four looking to have a clear advantage over the other. Likewise, there is no clear outsider who looks to have little/no chance.

The bookies have called it though and make Fulham the clear favourites, based on their late run into the Championship play-offs and scoring plenty goals, including a 3-1 win at St James Park.

Prices to win Championship Play-offs from BetVictor:

7/4 Fulham

5/2 Sheffield Wednesday

3/1 Huddersfield

9/2 Reading

However, who did Newcastle fans show a preference for?

Of the four clubs there was a clear winner and a clear loser, with the other two stuck in the middle, but this is how the voting ended:

40% Sheffield Wednesday

29% Fulham

24% Huddersfield

7% Reading

Sheff Wed the clear winner and no doubt memories of great visits to Hillborough in the past playing  a big part, as well as being relatively short trip, plus they would fill the away section at St James Park.

Here are the suggested reasons we gave for the four clubs yesterday:

FULHAM

Positives:

No real reason to dislike them, apart from taking six points off Newcastle this season.

Newcastle would get most away tickets of the four at Craven Cottage, when you include their ‘neutral’ section.

Negatives

Likely to invest heavily in players and being in London maybe would prove to have best recruitment of the four, especially if able to borrow decent players off top London clubs – so would maybe be the toughest competition for Newcastle to finish ahead of.

Won’t bring many fans to St James Park.

Long distance for the away trip, although not bad by train.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY

Positives:

Will definitely sell all tickets for St James Park.

Easy to get to away match.

For older Newcastle fans in particular, this one has the biggest nostalgia appeal.

Negatives

Would likely spend big similar to Fulham and would have a good go at staying up – meaning a team/club that potentially could compete with Newcastle when it comes to staying up/establishing yourself in the Premier League.

They took all six points off Newcastle this season.

HUDDERSFIELD

Positives:

Should sell all away tickets when visiting St James Park.

Would be an easy to get to away match.

Not likely to risk massive amounts of money if going up and would arguably be more likely to struggle in the Premier League and finish below Newcastle.

Negatives

David Wagner and to an extent their fans, proved a bit irritating as they competed for the automatic promotion spots.

READING

Positives:

Not likely to risk massive amounts of money if going up and would arguably be more likely to struggle in the Premier League and finish below Newcastle.

Negatives

Won’t bring many fans to St James Park.

Hardest to get to away match.

Jaap Stam made a few irritating remarks about Newcastle this past season.
