Newcastle 4th – 3 Points Above Spurs – 4 Points Above Chelsea


With Tottenham being beaten 1-0 tonight at QPR, Newcastle are now clear in 4th place in the Premier League on 62 points from 34 games.

Alan Pardew – been magnificent for Newcastle this season

QPR were reduced to 10 men late in the game when they were 1-0 up through a great Taarabt first half free-kick,   when Taarabt was sent off for a dubious second yellow card for kicking the ball away after 78 minutes.

But QPR held out and moved to 5th bottom of the league with 34 points, and Tottenham seemed to lack conviction and even fight, against their London neighbors.

It was another dubious decision by referee Mark Clattenburg, which seemed again to be in favor of one of the top teams, and another poor decision by the referee.

But Newcastle are now 3 points clear of Tottenham and 4 points clear of Chelsea, after easily beating Stoke 3-0 this afternoon at St. James’ Park, and only 3 points behind Arsenal with a game in hand.

Newcastle have a terrific chance now of making the Champions League, and with four games to go,  they may need only a couple of wins to do that.

In their six game winning streak,  the lads have kept five clean sheets – and only conceded one goal while scoring 13 – astonishing.

Howay The Lads!!

    Cannot imagine a better chance will come our way again for a long time.

    9 points from 12 and it will be ours!

    Those people who were criticising Cabaye a few weeks ago – remember, form is temporary, class is permanent.

    Pretty good choice really tom, any one else agree that perch’s passing and speed of his passing is actually quite good? actually quite accurate as well….

    Pardew said some nice words about Harper today..so glad.

    Hope he doenst leave the club through the back door. Been a great servant for us and so loyal.

    Pardew also requested the fans to buy all the home tickets at wigan as well!

    Perch even tried a flick or two today,spending a lotta time with the French n Argies will do that to ya 🙂
    Think Collo has been so composed this season.
    Willo was crap for a few games after injury but since has been top notch,diving header in defence today was magic.

    @tiote4pm A better chance will come our way next season when our team is strengthened in the summer and we have Stephen Harper back in our goal.

    Yeh right now we are the team to beat and it couldnt have come at a better time. Enjoy what has been the best possible day and then we just have to get our feet on the ground and look to the wigan game. For me ranked as probably the most dominant overall performance all season (only missed one game) . Not a foot wrong by anyone today..fantastic team performance and that pleases me more than anything.

    The only pass I have seen this season that can rival Cabaye’s was his own for Cisse’s against West Brom, simply stunning!

    No doubt results went our way again but talk of CL is a little premature. I can see us beating Wigan but Chelsea, Man City and Everton are really tough. On today’s game Yohan had his best game for a while but Cisse is really impressing. His work rate, holding the ball up and feeding back to midfielders was top notch. We have a top top striker on our hands. The three key buys for next year are Centre Back, Right Back and Left Midfield, over to you Mr Carr 🙂
