Well, another season of Premier League soccer is behind us. Manchester United took the title again this year. But it's the relegation contest that was most interesting. Hull City, new to the EPL this year, managed to hang on, despite losing to Man U today. Newcastle United, long time EPL side, were relegated, along with Middlesbrough and West Brom Albion. Promoted from the Championship (the league one step below the EPL) and playing in the EPL next season are the Wolverhampton Wanderers, Birmingham City, and either Sheffield United or Burnley (determined in a playoff tomorrow, Monday the 25th of May).

EDIT: Burnley won, 1-0, earning promotion to the EPL and ensuring that Sheffield United will spend another year in the second tier.
