After today’s hard fought 2-1 win against Birmingham City, Newcastle move up to 10th position in the Premier League.
St. James’ Park
But probably the most important thing is that Newcastle are now mathematically safe from relegation,. and if all three bottom sides win their remaining games, they will still not catch Newcastle.
Newcastle also have one other thing going for them, and that is their decent goal difference of -1, which is better than all the sides below them in the league except Stoke City.
If Newcastle can manage to get one last win against WBA two weeks tomorrow, in the last game of the season, they could well finish in the top 10, and that would be a terrific achievement.
After a hard and difficult season, where Newcastle still managed to change managers once, let’s give the Newcastle players some credit, we would have taken 44 points this season in a New York minute last August.
Our boys deserve a lot of credit for keeping Newcastle in mid-table almost all of the season, and never getting down and dirty in the relegation zone. We all had enough of that terrible stuff two years ago.
The players deserve great credit – and now to really strengthen the side this summer – that’s the next step in Newcastle’s comeback.
Howay The Lads!!
