    My plumping for Wendy may surprise more than a few. I will explain.

    1. I have a handful of mates who happen to support Wendy

    2. I can't think of anybody that I know that supports Dull City

    3. I am not a big fan of Steve Bruce

    4. We tend to gain more points a season off Dull than we do off Wendy

    I think that Hull struggle to cope with high intensity football as witnessed in the second leg against us, Wednesday will be at em from the kick off. Easy Wednesday win IMO.

    Hull for me.

    For no reason that I can really think of, other than maybe them knocking us out of the cup a couple of decades ago, I don't like Sheffield Wednesday. I had a couple of Blade supporting mates when I was younger and quite like them, so Wednesday have always bee the Pigs to me.

    Not that I particularly like Hull, but they are the lesser of two weevils (it'll make sense to a few)

    So COYT

    Hull purely for the fact that Sheff Wed finished 15 points behind Brighton and 9 points behind Hull

    Despite wanting Hull to win I actually feel the opposite Boz.
    Feel that Hull may fall apart if they fall short.
    Where as Wendy's have the backing set up and potential fan base to be a problem next season.

    And Wednesday have played in front of 18k this season at home and now they've managed to find 40k fans. At least Hull are consistent.

    I'd prefer Hull to win, but I think SW will do it.

    Of course, this question would be purely academic if we'd signed Pearson when we sacked Clement instead of indulging Mel's mate.

    A bizarre decision that made no sense then or now.

    Steve Bruce now has four promotions to the Premier League. That is two more than any other manager - since football began in 1992 Whistle

    He may have a face like an arse and produce some tedious football, but you can't deny he's effective.

    I've heard some vague rumours that he is going to be replaced at Hull - I hope he doesn't end up at Forest.

    Here's what I posted in the "Will you be watching the play-off final today?" thread:

    Watched most of it, but knew I would be disappointed, whatever the result.

    I wanted Wednesday to win because that would give us 12 easy points next season (Hull and Forest!)

    But I wanted Hull to win because Wednesday are dirty, cheating thugs.

    But I wanted Hull to win so that we wouldn't be kicked to pieces for 2 matches next year.

    Which way to go?

    In the end I was rooting for Hull. We watched it at the Jonty Farmer, but got there after the kick off. The first thing I saw was two cynical fouls by Wednesday players, plus some blatant cheating, so my mind was made up.

    In the end, it was only Hull who seemed to want to win the game, with Wednesday aiming to defend, and hope to snick a goal to win it. So well done, Hull.

    Apart from your spawny fans. Where were you? All those empty red seats, it was as if Forest were playing in the final, with the giveaway being that they were still red, and not a dowdy, faded pink colour!

    Having watched the final, I am sick as a parrot because we could have taken either of those teams to the cleaners today.

    My oh my, didn't we make an absolute cock-up of our season?

    I rate Bruce and always have.
    Gets the job done especially at this level.
    And for me one of the more honest blokes in football.
    Always thought Westwood had the ability to steal promotion for Wednesday by stealing games they should lose.
    And for a while today it looked like that might happen.

    But a great goal decided what I thought was a decent game.
    Congrats Hull at least we beat and got beat by the winners.
