Be allowed to watch Cov play in grounds starting from next week against Cardiff with the potential to get relegated to League 1, or watch the rest of the season BCD but guaranteed survival in the Championship?

Survival, you'd give yourself a full Championship season to watch next year rather than what's left of this one

I’d choose two more seasons (if it was tenable) BCD for two more survivals than relegation this season with fans. The gulf will get bigger, we should try all we can to stay with the pack.

Watch with potential as it is not guaranteed and the power of the 12th man could work to help the team

Not really it's like choosing between guaranteed good or the risk of bad
It’s only good if you can kick on the season after, another season like this, and another, and another, it’s absolutely depressing, being in a division competing at the top end is a million times better than being at the arse end of the championship getting beat most weeks. It’s very naive to believe survival is a success, it’s only a success if it allows you to be more competitive the following season, if it’s going to be another relegation battle, with the likelihood of another the following season, any half decent players you have will be out the door quicker than a whippet, which means it’ll be even harder to compete.

Survival is only a good thing if you can build on it the following season, building on it is much harder than survival, because your players contracts are getting shorter, so they’re due new ones, but they’ll want a pay increase because now they’re established championship players now, if you don’t increase their money another club will, so now you need to re-recruit, but good luck recruiting championship quality players on your budget, you’ll need it. So next seasons probably going to be harder than the previous.

For a club in our situation staying up isn’t as much a success as it is essential
