Monday's soccer news starts with the relegation places in the Premier League settled with a week left in the season. Hull City joins Middlesbrough and Sunderland in dropping to the Championship, with none of those results much of a surprise.
ESPN FC's Philip Buckingham reports on the game that sealed Hull City's relegation. They bounced right back fro relegation last season and they did it through the playoffs. This time, there's pressure on ownership and the feeling that being a yo-yo team is no future even with the Premier League parachute payments.
"It’s been a long, hard slog and this is a sad day," Hull's Michael Dawson said. "You work hard throughout the season and then get relegated. However, we have to pick ourselves up. We know the Championship. 12 months ago we were getting promoted from it and we have to do that again next season."
