Bottom Three Sides And Sunderland All Lose


The results in the Premier League went Newcastle’s way this afternoon.



The three Ws, Wolves, West Ham and Wigan, who are some pundits’ favorites to be relegated, all lost today and all stay in the bottom three with Wigan rock bottom on 31 points and West Ham and Wolves on 32 points.

Wolves looked hopeless today at home to Everton, and were 3-0 down at the interval, and although they tried their hardest in the second half, it may be they just don’t have the class to survive this season, but they’ve certainly got the spirit – to their credit.

West Ham lost 3-0 at Bolton and were 2-0 down after just 20 minutes, and they now have their work cut out to stay up. It’s okay playing in the Olympic Stadium, but we’re sure they thought  the would be playing there, while still in the Premier League.

Wigan gave Chelsea a good game at Stamford Bridge today, with Chelsea not looking all that good, but the London side managed to get a goal from Florent Malouda after 67 minutes, and that was enough to get all 3 points.

That takes Chelsea to 58 points, just one point behind Arsenal who have a game in hand.

But Manchester United kept up their excellent recent form with a good 2-0 win at home to Fulham, and now have 69 points, and are 10 points clear of Arsenal who have two games in hand.

It’s looking like another Premier League title for the Red Devils, and this would be their 12th title in the 19 seasons of the Premier League  and it’s looking a lot like things in Scotland, where only two teams dominate every season.

And Sunderland lost their fourth game in a row at the Stadium of Light this afternoon, and their 7th defeat in their last eight games. The draw was when they were outplayed at Arsenal but came away with a good 0-0 draw.

One good thing for Sunderland today  is that they scored their first goal in seven and a half hours of play, but it was a Nickey Shorey own goal.

But to be fair, Phil Bardsley did score before half time with a terrific free kick, to put Sunderland 2-1 up, his first goal at home for Sunderland, but they couldn’t hold the lead in the second half and gave up two goals.

Roy Hodgson may not have been too successful at Liverpool, but he’s doing just great at WBA, and has three wins and four draws since he took over in early February.

13 points from 7 games is not too bad at all for a side battling relegation, and WBA are now level with Newcastle on 39 points, but Newcastle have the game in hand tomorrow at Villa Park, so we should be 3 points ahead of WBA by tomorrow night. 😀

And struggling Blackburn and Birmingham fought to a 1-1 draw, which both teams would probably be quite happy with.

It could be that if Newcastle can get just a point tomorrow, that may well be enough for safety, but a win tomorrow would put the icing on the cake, and would now ensure Newcastle stay up this season.

And it would be fantastic, with the emphasis on fan, if Newcastle can bury the terrible memories of two years ago, with a good win for the always faithful Toon Army.

Howay The Lads!!

    People should notice, over confidence on this blog usually leads to the team losing. Villa will be a very tough game.

    They have professionals in their squad, like we do. We had similar pressure last week and we humped the team we were playing, lets not get over confident.

    10 – 0 NUFC

    Anyway on subject. Wolves did not look hopeless today. They had the mos possession but couldn’t finish. And I would have liked to have seen a few teams below us advancing on Scumperland. That means the teams below Scumberland have to win.

    We’ll win tomorrow 0-1 and it’ll be a own goal from Downing that win us the game. And that will do me. Just perfect.

    Tonytoon73, Ah ok, the one I know is. A Geordie is standing beside Tynemouth Priory and is crying desperately. Someone comes up to him and asks why he is crying. He answers. That a bus full of Scum has just driven over the cliff. The other person says. “But you’re a Geordie, you should be happy about that”. And the Geordie says. “Yeah I know but there was still standing place free”. Boom boom.

    It’s a pity we’re this weak up front this season. With some firepower in that department we could easily look forward to playing in Europe next season!

    Jan Stavik. Are we that weak over the season?

    Nolan and Carroll had 11 by mid-way. Best, Shola, Loven all on 6-8 a piece. The problem was we got all our goals in the same high-scoring games. If we’d saved a couple from the 6-0, 5-1, 5-0, 4-1, etc, and scored those in the tight games we’d be miles up the table… stating the obvious mind.

    The right result tomorrow and we could say this has been a fairly good season, get prepared for the summer, enjoy the final few games.

    Remember the club when we got promoted around this time last year claimed to have a head start on preparation for this season, our scouts ended up bringing in Tiote, Gosling, Ben Arfa… Hopefully we can work on similar quality players with summer.

    Watching MOTD, does anyone else think that Jermaine Beckford may have been a decent signing? He has done well stepping up to the EPL

    My prediction for tomorrow is a scoring draw 1-1… I don’t think there is much between the two sides. Villa have improved after a really poor start.

    Pardew needs to get his win percentage up and considering we face Man U next week, three points would be awesome. Good luck lads!!

    Ideally, Wigan, Villa and Wolves to go down.

    Good teams to nick players from. Blackpool can stay up, we dont need any of their players.

    Ideal is for Sunderland, Villa and Wigan to go down. Why Wigan? Because they are in the last place. Why Villa and Scumerland? For those who don’t know, you should get out of this blog then.

    we get an early goal…the crowd will turn on thek and make them nervous…..all attack and premier safety secured and then we can start cheer on west ham and blackpool to overtake the scum and leave them in the fizzy league next year. now that would be a dreeam scenario

    Has anyone seen the villa website? They are replying the 3-1 loss in 2008. Nothing said of the 6 nil mauling. We must do them today.
    3 nil to us. Ameobi header, Barton free kick. Raylor off a corner. HWTL get into em ! F @#k em up.

    That should be replaying. Again like last week I’m a Toon fan now in the midlands lots of the lads are villa fans, been gobby all week and I sincerely hope We stick em. If We can humble them again get 3pts and safety, and push them down all the better. Ashley young today has said only good players get picked for England. What a load of bull.

    Nervous about today. Every time the majority of this blog are confident………………we loose!

    Hope not though.

    Shola and Colo for a 2-1 win. Downing for them.
