That's full time. If Hull had put this much effort into the season as they did today, they would probably still be going down. It wasn't a question of attitude from most of the players who were here today, as much as it was a failure to integrate newer signings to improve the side. Hull are relegated and cannot have any complaints.

I'm preditcing a 2-0 win for Manchester United, with Di Maria showing all of the competence he hasn't bothered to yet this season.
You can follow the other relegation battle in the link below.
No Falcao in the squad today, and you can see why below.
For Hull, this is the final throw of the dice, which is a cliche, and so I shouldn't have used it. They have to hope that results go their way, and that Newcastle lose today.
Angel Di Maria starts. That's nice. Imagine if he'd bothered turning up for much of the season, even if he has the excuse that most of the players around him were rubbish.
Meanwhile, a report from the other relegation game.
