Newcastle will be trying to win all four matches over the next two weeks, and do something which would be amazing – win all of our 10 matches in the Premier League.
Alan Pardew – at his Newcastle desk trying to do a deal for Messi?
That’s a real tall order for any team of course, and if the Magpies were able to do that, the high likelihood is that we would finish 3rd top of the league above Arsenal, and then cheer on Chelsea to beat Bayern Munich in the Champions League in three weeks time.
We now all know that if Chelsea wins the Champions League and finish outside the top four, they will qualify for next season’s competition at the expense of the 4th placed side, which we know could well be Newcastle.
If that scenario happens Alan Pardew has said he will not be despondent, since it’s still been a great season for his new Newcastle side:
“It’s a great scenario because it will mean we’ve finished fourth and the worst we can do is make the Europa League,” “There would be great pride in that.”
“You look at Chelsea and the results they’ve had have been phenomenal. In a way, they perhaps deserve to win it, although it’s going to be tough at Bayern Munich’s stadium.”
“The Europa League is certainly not a consolation. Let’s be honest, before the season started there were a few pundits predicting us for a relegation fight.”
“So for us to secure Europe with four games to go is astonishing really, and it gives us the luxury to try to achieve a top-four finish.”
Alan’s so right of course, because nobody was expecting Newcastle to do so well this season – nobody.
And with the Premier League games being broadcast around the world these days, Newcastle have become a high profile club once again, and have gained the support of many new fans around the world.
Who wouldn’t want to support Newcastle, with the way they are playing these days, and the manager Alan Pardew seems so down to earth and natural, and is good at keeping the lads’ feet firmly on the ground.
We know full well it’s a very tall order, but just think how you would feel if we beat Everton on May 13th, and we had won all of our last 10 games.
One thing is for certain – and that is the Newcastle City center would be really rocking this summer.
