Newcastle Closer to Relegation Zone After Sunderland Win

With Sunderland’s win last night against Reading at home, they move one place below Newcastle in the league table from their previous 3rd bottom position, and Newcastle are now just two points above the relegation zone, after being a more comfortable 4 points clear before Sunderland’s 3-0 win last night.

And it doesn’t look like many of our readers think we’ll do any better against Manchester City on Saturday with 71% thinking we’ll lose that game in the early voting.

Vurnon Anita is one player who seems to have the right attitude. although he’s never fought relegation in his football career, having been at Ajax before he arrived on Tyneside:

“We must win games but we haven’t done that a lot.” “On Saturday against City we must go at full strength to win the game at home.” “At home we know we have to give everything.”

“The fans expect that we put teams under full pressure but I don’t know how we’ll approach it yet. I’m going to wait to see what our game plan will be to surprise City at home.”

“They lost in the last minute against Man United so I expect them to be aggressive to try to win the game because they don’t want Manchester United to pull away from them at the top.”

“They will come full of determination but we must look at ourselves and bring our A game.” “We will be at home, so it’s going to be a great game.” “The crowd behind us can help us and I hope we can do our best on Saturday.”

It’s unlikely, but to turn our season around we have to start winning games, and that starts with Manchester City on saturday – we have to go for the points – there’s no other alternative.

Let us know how you think the game will go on Saturday:
