Four Teams Below Newcastle In League All Fail To Win


Good results in the Premier League last night, at least as far as the Newcastle club are concerned.


Of the four sides playing last night in the PL, who are below Newcastle in the league, two  were beaten and two teams drew.

Arsenal beat a better looking Everton side 2-1 at The Emirates, after coming back from a  goal down, and it seems that Everton are continuing a terrible season for them.

They are in 14th place on 27 points from 24 games – just 4 points above the drop zone.

And that central defense of Arsenal’s looked so frail last night, and we think Alan Pardew will mount an all-out aerial attack on Saturday at St. James Park against the Gunners, and we expect to see Nile Ranger get an outing in the second half of that game.

West Brom and Wigan drew 2-2 at the Hawthorns, and while it looked until the last 15 minutes that Wigan would win the game 2-1,  West Brom came storming back and and were unlucky not to snatch all 3 points as they went close several times in those last 10 minutes.

But Wigan look a relegation side and must start to pick up some points soon, or else  they could be in big trouble.

Charles N’Zogbia looked good for Wigan out on the right wing, and certainly put in a  good shift and scored with a great free kick after 19 minutes –  maybe he’s trying to cement a return to Newcastle in the summer. 😀

And Manchester United continued their impressive form at Old Trafford this season with a fairly comfortable 3-1 win over Aston Villa, with Wayne Rooney scouring a goal in the very first minute and then getting a second in first half  injury time.

Rooney is starting to resemble the Wayne Rooney of old – slowly but surely.

Thankfully,  Sunderland were beaten 4-2 at home by an ever improving  Chelsea side, who have now won their last thee Premier league games since losing 1-0 at Wolves. Torres wasn’t eligible to play in the game.

Since we need to finish above Sunderland, the Wearsiders are in 6th position on 37 points after 25 games and Newcastle are in 9th place, on 30 points from just 23 games.

So two wins in our two games in hand would put Newcastle just one point behind Sunderland, and with a slightly better goal difference.

If Newcastle can get a win at Craven Cottage tomorrow night,  the lads could be up to  7th position on 33 points from just 24 games..

Howay The Lads!!

    Ed,
    As much as i love you from the bottom of my heart for starting this blog, please stop posting articles like these which remind us of relegation days.
    We are not in a relegation fight and will not be . Lets not build that mentality from fan level itself !

    Thanks,

    I think Fulham think they will win easily tonight after they destroyed Tottenham on Sunday. Show them even we don’t have Carroll, we still have good team to build on.

    But 1 point from away game is ok for me.

    @toonoholic as much as i want to believe that we are a top half team the fact is we are a newly promoted team which equals to relegation battle team.

    next season with hopefully 40mil to spend we can aim higher

    A good solid performance is needed tonight with Ranger coming on the second half to score a goal or two…..

    Three points for an away win would be nice but will accept a point as Fulham are not an easy side to break down!

    I want to see Ranger and Loven start. They both have pace and who knows if Ranger can step up to the level Andy did and find his touch we may have another good young striker to enjoy watching

    Fullham seems to be in quite a good shape with the trashing of Spuds and all so I’d be very happy with one point too.
    Then again the Scum came to SJP with overconfidence and a great spell behind them and look where it got them? 😀
