There are a number of reasons that Newcastle are down in the dumps in the Premier League right now, and we’d like to know which one of them is the main reason for Newcastle’s slump in the Premier League over the last seven games – of which we’ve lost an amazing six.
- The club didn’t bring in enough players in the summer to fortify the squad for the extra games we play in the Europa League, and since we have qualified for the final 32 of that competition we will have more games coming up starting in February.
- Some of our major players are out injured and certainly we’ve been hit with injuries with Ryan Taylor, Haris Vuckic and Dan Gosling out long term, and Yohan Cabaye and Steven Taylor our until February, Ben Arfa now out until next year and that mysterious toe injury that Gabby Obertan has – that has kept him out far too long.
- A number of our top players not playing anywhere near the form they showed last season, and they include players like Papiss Cisse and Jonas Gutierrez to name just two.
- There are criticisms of manager Alan Pardew and the coaching staff, of not being able to get the best out of the good players we still have available.
Each reader has only one vote – and let us know which of the four you think is the major reason for this season’s dramatic slump.
