This season is quickly turning into a nightmare for Newcastle fans.
Chairman Chris Mort – disappointed himself with results so far this season
We now have taken just 26 points from our first 21 games, and it we continue like this weâ€™ll end up with about 51 points, which will have us in the lower half of the league table, with no chance of qualifying for Europe.
In fact, if we donâ€™t show better form rather quickly, the possibility of us qualifying for Europe will be slim indeed, although we all know that strange things can and do happen in the world of football.
But this is not where we expected to be in early January this season is it?Â A run of 12 games where we have dropped 27 points, is not what we expected to have to ensure, to say the least. A good season would have seen us high enough in the league so that we could have qualified for the EUFA Cup competition, and that had to be our target this season.
But with our poor form of late, the Newcastle fans may have to tone down the expectations, and be satisfied with a mid table spot at best this season.Â As we said, strange things can happen, but right now it doesnâ€™t seem weâ€™ll be able to achieve some of our hopes of early in the season.
What do you think? We know last nightâ€™s result was hard on the Geordie psyche, but let us know what you think. Can we still turn this around this season? Will we turn it around this season?Â What will it take to still qualify for Europe?
