Most Premier League Results Go Newcastle’s Way


The two sides of the bottom three who played today in the Premier League, won their games.

Charlie Adam – scored Blackpool’s winner this afternoon

Blackpool got a thrilling win against a slumping Bolton side 4-3 at Bloomfield Road today, with the winner coming from – who else – Charlie Adam of course.

You can never accuse Blackpool players of not giving their all in every game, and they outfought a slumping Bolton side, who remain just 2 points above Newcastle.

Bolton play Man City at home in their last game,  so Newcastle could still overtake them if our lads can beat WBA.

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway had said the Seasiders had to get 4 points from their last 2 games, and now they meet Manchester United in the final game of the season at Old Trafford.

And Wolves had only their third away win of the season at Sunderland 3-1, when they scored two second half goals after the score was tied 1-1 at the half.

That’s Sunderland’s 10th defeat in the last thirteen games in which they have picked up a meager 7 points, with two wins and a draw. It;s been disastrous at Sunderland ever since Darren Bent left town.

Sunderland are still level on points with Newcastle, with a much worse goal difference (-14 vs -1), and have to play West Ham at Upton Park next Sunday afternoon.

Sunderland will have to at least draw in their last game at West Ham to finish above Newcastle in the league this season

Wolves move to 5th bottom on 40 points, and since Blackburn could only draw with Manchester United 1-1 they remain in 15th place above Wolves only on goal difference.

The decision by the new Indian owners of Blackburn Rovers  to replace Sam Allardyce with Steve Kean is now looking like a disastrous mistake.

Blackburn in their last 12 games have only one win and four draws, for a total of just 7 points.

And Blackburn have to play a rejuvenated Wolves side a week tomorrow at Molineux,  so Blackburn could yet be relegated if Wolves win, since they are now just one point above the drop zone.

The results today mean that West Ham must win their last two games just to get to 39 points, and level with Birmingham and Blackpool.

Even after today’s win Blackpool remain 3rd bottom of the league, but it doesn’t look too good for Hammers’ fans.

The result that didn’t go Newcastle’s way today was WBA’s fine 1-0 win against Everton at home, and WBA are now 2 points above Newcatsle, as are Bolton Wanderers.

Newcastle will now have to beat WBA a week tomorrow to move above them in the league table, and have any chance of finishing in the top 10.

That assumes Newcastle will get nothing from tomorrow’s game at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United have won their 12th Premier League title in 18 seasons, and now move ahead of Liverpool with their 19th English League title ever.

We hope that will have a negative effect on Chelsea’s performance against the Magpies tomorrow afternoon. 😀

    Think we have very little chance tomorrow but we should pick points up on our last game. SCUMBERLAND think its a disgrace that they are on the same points as us, DELUDED fools.

    What a cracking signing Adams would ‘be’, it’s frightening to think of him and Gerrard in same team feeding Saurez and Carroll!

    On a brighter note, bye bye ‘Ammers, cheated the system a few yrs ago during the Tevez debacle ! I’m so suspicious of Lundon teams having sway with FA, oh where’s QPR from again?

    @Toon1978: To be fair, to them it is. We’re a newly promoted side with little to spend while the Mackem’s have had the extra year in the EPL and they’ve hardly been short of cash, have they? I can’t remember the exact number but I remember hearing £60m being bandied about not so long ago.

    Think about that one for a minute. They have paid out £60m, effectively, for EPL survival and a newly promoted team who just so happened to be their rivals trounced them 5-1 away from home, and had it not have been for sheer luck, they’d have been beaten at home too.

    It is a disgrace but as long as I’m wearing black and white it’s f’ing hilarious.

    Alan Pardew might have a textbook to say about that, mate – he was the one who signed him!

    Oh and treble post and all that, but it wasn’t cheating any system – there wasn’t a system in place for it. The entire Tevez saga gave the FA a reason to set a precedent and create a rule which they did.

    Sunderland have more spunk then me and i have 6 children, 4 boys and two girls. They where lucky last week and they have scored quite a few cheeky last minute goals look at the one they scored against us at their place. Gyan knew nothing about it lol. Sunderland have spent so much money on rubbish so they only have themselves to blame. Was listening to their commentators before their match and all they could bang on about was finishing above us, how bloody sad is that. Well today they shot themselves again. Ohhh hang on no last minute own goals to celebrate this week.

    What a load of rubbish! Why was West Ham fined millions and millions for it?
    They knew it was wrong, Sheff Utd knew it was wrong and everyone in football knew it was wrong, let’s ‘be’ fair u don’t get fined for doing the right thing!
    The Hammers dodged a bullet and karma has shot them instead. Happy hammers ? Happy days!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third-party_ownership_in_association_football#Carlos_T.C3.A9vez_and_Javier_Mascherano

    There were no rules. I don’t know why the FA decided to do what they did, from my knowledge that Kia fella kicked off about something or other and the FA joined int, but that was the event that triggered the rules to be put in place. If there are no rules, why would you think there was anything wrong with it?

    I agree that there were better ways of going about things but that didn’t happen.

    Come to think of it, isn’t that Kia bloke the lad who was supposedly at NUFC a couple of months back?

    Wolfsberg climbing out of relegation zone…

    Scored 3 goals in the second half to go 1-3 up against Hoffenheim for the last game of the season. Shame… they would have been a great team to pillage after relegation.

    Yeah some players are pony from relegated teams but Ba Noble Sears Tomkins are all good young players.

    The ones we shifted were old and injury prone (fair play Ba has injury issues)

    Man city have it easy mate. They can go and buy who they want, Stoke can not. Man city will go on to many more finals believe you me so today is the day for Stoke because they will not get many chances like today. Stoke and 99% of the EPL can not keep up with them so imo City have everything and seeing them beaten in the finals might knock them down a peg or two lol.

    3rd party ownership has been around for yrs in south America and roundly critised and the hammers tool a gamble.
    It’s so wrong and makes the great game of football into ‘just business’ shocking really and pleased FA took a stand. Well I thought they had, until QPR took the Mick!
    Anyway regardless of the history lessons, I’m still smiling at there oncoming relegation.
