Relegation Watch is back! After the popularity of last season’s set of blogs, revelling in the downfall of Newcastle United, I thought it would be a good idea to bring back the topic… but whose demise will I be plotting this time?

Ironically, it is the team I was tipping to survive last season – Hull City. Why the change of heart? Well, I disliked Newcastle more 12 months ago, and Hull’s success lead to The Toon Army’s relegation. Plus, Hull’s manager, Phil Brown, has become even more annoying in the past year.

He rarely backs his players – a factor I believe to be very important in a manager. When Hull lose, it’s their fault, not his. Remember this?

Yet when Hull “do well” – not winning for about 9 months, getting beat by the Manchester United Under 14’s, but surviving relegation – it’s all down to the genius that is Phil ‘the dogs bollocks’ Brown.

Everton today helped the Relegation Watch, beating Hull 5-1 this afternoon. Maybe it’ll get easier for Philip next week… they have Arsenal – I think not.

I don’t think he’ll need his mic this season. A map to Blackpool, however, will be required.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
