It’s been huge news over the weekend that Liverpool can score goals without Luis Suarez, and that Newcastle United, who finished 5th last season and almost reached the semi-finals of the Europa League this season, could be relegated next month.
Mike Ashley – must be feeling anxious
And we all know that could be the second time in four years – we still haven’t got over the last one.
And the reason we are so worried about this is that with three games to go in the season, we have managed to get ourselves in a perilous situation and we don’t think our lads can play well under such pressure.
Most of our new players are just not used to this kind of intense pressure that you get when you play for Newcastle, especially in a relegation battle..
That was seen in the last two big games at home against Sunderland and Tottenham, when we leaked 9 goals – and our players showed little or no fight in both those games.
That’s why we are worried and Newcastle were recently listed as the 20th most valuable club in football by Forbes magazine, and also 20th in the Deloitte ratings based on revenue.
So if we are relegated this season, we’ll have to build ourselves up again – and that’s very hard to do – and we’ll not even mention the £70M we’ll miss out on next season, with the new three year TV deal.
Mike Ashley will be absolutely furious if at the end of the home game against Arsenal on 19th May, we are relegated, and fans will not be too happy either.
And it will be a very sad day in the history of Newcastle United.
We are praying this will not happen.
