Newcastle United won the race to pencil in their names for the Coca Cola Championship next season with another convincing 1-0 loss against Roy Hodgson’s Fulham.

The Toon are set to battle it out with the lads from the Championship, after the dismal display at St. James’ Park. In defence, the Toon will plead shambolic refereeing, but in all honesty, they had enough chances in the first-half to kill the game, and the goal they conceded was a consequence of inefficient, lazy defending.

Frenchman Sebastien Bassong is set to miss-out on the final game of the season at Villa park after Howard Webb issued an unwarranted straight red with half-an-hour left to play.

The stylish Englishman also disallowed a Mark Viduka equaliser, and denied the Magpies more than one opportunity to claim a free-kick, or corner.

Hull City put in a passionate display against Bolton Wanderers to earn a vital point taking them out of the bottom-three, and in pole position to save their status in the League.

Newcastle United are down, and out, ladies and gentlemen. Is the Championship really that bad? The supporters would feel that it is, and from a financial prospect, it is disastrous as well.

A sarcastic fan jibed, ‘Well done boys, each and every one of you. As Manchester United clinch the championship, you guys are heading for the Championship.’
