With the players arriving back for pre-season training this Thursday, we’ll take a look back at one of our summer polls, about where the fans expect Newcastle to finish in the league table next season.
Fans expect top ten finish but not top six
We put this poll up on June 1st and 54% think Newcastle will finish from 6th to 10th – which is where most of the votes are.
Of course I did screw this one up a bit (what again) and had an overlap in two of the categories – 6th to 10th and top six – I should have made the category 7th to 10th.
We suppose the good news is that only 5% think we’ll be relegated, but on the other hand only 10% think we’ll finish in the top six.
With clubs like the two Manchesters, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool, it’s kind of hard to break into the top six these days, but that’s exactly what we did a season ago.
We just wish that Mike Ashley had a lot more ambition for Newcastle United.
I’ll put this poll up again on the home page – and there’s still time to vote – but it seems most fans would be happy enough with a top ten finish, and that we stay out of another relegation scrap.
The nerves cannot take another relegation scrap like last season – that’s for sure.
And in the comments, please refrain from any racial comments – and try to respect the views of other readers – they are only opinions after all – thanks.
