We have to be very close when we say 3 points from 12 league games is one of the worst runs Newcastle have ever endured in their league history.
Alan Smith – why does this player start every game ??
A striker who hasn’t scored in 30 months.
The reality of relegation may be starting to settle in at Newcastle United, after our awful performance against Liverpool at the weekend for our 4th defeat in a row and 9th in 12 games.
So we’re not sure now is the time for Kevin to be talking how he will turn the club around in the summer and bring 5 top players in – since that’s all that’s needed, given our current squad is good.
How about saying we’ll beat Birmingham which is much more important right now.
We need to concentrate on getting some points. Reading have twice as many points in their last 2 games, than we have amassed in our last 12. That’s how bad things are.
If we win our next 4 league games – then yes, it will be an appropriate time to talk about new players, because we’ll be safe and in the Premier league next season. 😀
But with one defeat after another, relegation becomes more and more like a reality, and that, unfortunately, is the truth. We wish it wasn’t. 🙁
Weâ€™ve lost 9 games out of our last 12, so weâ€™re in a terrible and hopeless slump. Let’s not dance around this – this is one of the worst runs in the club’s history.
Until this team turns things around we think itâ€™s just pie in the sky to talk about bringing good players to Newcastle in the summer.
Who would want to come to play in the Championship?
We donâ€™t want to go down, but we are nothing if not realistic, and we have to realize the more defeats we string together, the more we will continue tumbling down the league.
At present we are 6th bottom, just 3 points above Bolton who are 3rd bottom, but they have a game in hand. If they win that game they’ll go above Newcastle on goal difference.
There are only 9 games left. If we continue to perform in those games as we have in the previous 9, weâ€˜ll end up with 30 points and a goal difference of -48.
Thatâ€™s because in our last 9 league games weâ€™ve lost 7 and drawn 2, conceded 25 goals and scored just 3.
After Saturday’s game and probably for the first time this season we realized relegation was a real and distinct possibility.
It will remain so until this team can get a few wins together – and until then let’s not try to curry the fans favor with all the great things that are going to happen at the club in the future.
How many times do we keep hearing that?
Once bitten twice shy.
