I need you guys to stink just enough that Tottenham feels it has something to play for when it plays at Hull Survival Sunday.

If you could figure out a way to do that, it would be greatly appreciated.

Do you really want Spurs to feel like they are playing for something? Didn't work out for them against West Ham

Went to a D4 (US) match Saturday down in Detroit and watched some lady on her phone get nailed in the head with a soccer ball, was mildly entertaining.

Will Liverpool Coog'it?

If our remaining fixtures were @Chelsea, Spurs, I'd feel pretty confident, but @WHU, Middlesbrough, eh, that's a tall order.

Liverpool's advantage is that neither Manchester United or Arsenal look terribly interested in making the Champions League either

Man United has so many injuries they seem to be putting everything in on getting in through the Europa League, Arsenal is well...Arsenal.

Doesn't matter Spurs have already Spur'd it and Everton can't even score a goal right now and have hurt our top 6 chances, Spurs championships hopes, CP, AND Hull all in one week.

There is no official tier 4 league. Which amateur league was it?

I ain't mad at ManUre as if they win it Everton joins Europa in the group stage.

Just like I will never be mad at you guys for forgetting what the goal looks like for a couple weeks if we end up surviving this.

Lukaku needs to be benched but I don't know if Koeman can go through with that one (with that said, he's benched everyone else who's started for us so this is the exception not the rule)

Has the Koeman honeymoon feeling worn off yet Purp? I'm sure Soton would love to have him back with the bus parking maneuverability practice Puel seems to be doing down there every weekend.

Obviously the Pro/Rel playoffs are still on-going, but here are the Promotions and Relegations for the top 4 leagues in England so far:

Premier League
Relegated
Sunderland

In contention for the drop
Palace: 38 points with 2 games to play (win against Hull/draw against Hull will secure their spot in the Prem. next season)
Swansea: 35 points with 2 games to play
Hull: 34 points with 2 games to play
Middlesbrough: 28 points with 3 games to play (If Chelsea game holds they will be relegated)

Championship
Promoted
Newcastle
Brighton

Promotion Playoff
3. Reading vs. 6. Fulham
4. Wednesday vs. 5. Huddersfield Town

Relegated
Blackburn
Wigan
Rotherham

League One
Promoted
Sheffield United
Bolton

Promotion Playoff
3. Scunthorpe vs. 6. Millwall
4. Fleetwood vs. 5. Bradford City

Relegated
Chesterfield
Coventry
Swindon

League Two
Promoted
Doncaster
Plymouth Argyle

Promotion Playoff
4. Luton vs. 7. Blackpool
5. Exeter City vs. 6. Carlisle

Glad to see Burton staying in the Championship, and still kind of crazy to see Blackburn get the drop. Also happy to see Portsmouth moving up...wouldn't mind seeing Wimbledon jump up to the Championship next season too.

Where do the relegated teams from League Two go to? I'm not well-versed in lower tier English football.

Middlesborough officially relegated with the loss to Chelsea today.

Final slot could go a bunch of different ways. Only way it gets decided this weekend is if Swansea wins at Sunderland and Hull loses at Palace.

If Hull/Palace draw, it is guaranteed to go to Survival Sunday undecided. Thing to watch is that Swansea play first this week with the typical Saturday 3pm English time games. Hull/Palace is on Sunday. We already saw this week how Swansea reacted to watching Hull lose before it ever took the field. Swans need to win to really put pressure on Hull.
