Newcastle Will Finish In Top Ten As Liverpool Blow Title Chance


Liverpool sensationally blew their chance at a Premier League Championship tonight when they were 3-0 up after 55 minutes at Crystal Palace and because of their inferior goal difference to Man City the Reds were trying to run up the score.

brendan rodgers

Brendan Rodgers – Liverpool manager – devastated

But in what was a sensational comeback, Crystal Place scored three goals in the final 11 minutes to draw the game, and remember, having scored 28 goals before this game, Palace were the lowest scoring side in the Premier League.

It was simply unbelievable.

So Liverpool are now just one point ahead of Manchester City with one game to play against Newcastle next Sunday, and Manchester City have two games to play and two wins and even one win and a draw should see City – the best team that money can buy – win their second Premier League title in the last three seasons.

And with Crystal Palace failing to win the game, Newcastle will at the very least finish in 10th place, and Alan Pardew was at the game, and he will have seen that although the Liverpool attack is devastating, the Liverpool defense has conceded a massive 49 goals this season, and that’s their big weakness., as they proved again tonight.

You cannot make this stuff up. 😀

But this game is why the Premier League is the most popular sports league in the world – it was astonishing – and all credit to the Crystal Palace players and Tony Pulis, who were fantastic in those last 11 minutes.

Liverpool trying to increase their goal difference proved to be their downfall, and it’s easy to see what Liverpool need to do in the summer – sign some decent defenders –  make that very good defenders.

As far as Newcastle are concerned and we need to sign good players in almost all positions.

If Manchester City beat Aston Villa at home on Wednesday night, then they would need only draw in their last game at home to West Ham on Sunday.

It’s also a chance for Newcastle to put in  a top performance against Liverpool in our last game, but can we do it?

In a word – no.

In two words – definitely no.

But we are willing to be surprised at Anfield on Sunday, and it may take a good Newcastle result for Alan Pardew to keep his job as manager of Newcastle – a win would definitely see us finish in 9th place.

But there I go again – completley delusional. 😀

    Maybe he’ll quit once hes pocketed that bonus cheque!
    On another note, we run the risk of playing the most attacking creative team in the league on sunday and they might be playing freely without pressure?! Think nufc wd have been better off in liverpool where still in with a title chance as theres a chance they’d crack under pressure! Expect them to get 5 or 6 tbh

    …and thats not just going off one game, palace have played some nice stuff since he started and its rarely been ‘hoofball’. I honestly reckon at stoke he had to play the way he did and has now had to switch style to suit certain players which is working.

    Most on here would probs take a black bin liner stuffed with old potato pealings over pards but Pulis could defo do a job with the right players

    Ok so the bindippers have a relatively poor defence.

    Ordinarily, one would expect us to go for them however, who’ve we got to do that? Nobody.

    With Liverpool chasing goals, we’re gonna get hammered.

    Graeme…I seem to remember reading the Hall statement before. Don’t disbelieve it all. Ashley is all about business, I don’t have a problem with that. It could have been a great partnership, the man is just too greedy. If I had one message for Ashley (other than simply “P*ss off”) it would be “He who dies with the most toys, still dies”. The guy is classless.

    Not that we needed any more proof on Hall and his feelings towards the club, but I can’t help question why the hell he allowed the sale to go ahead then. Another case of excessive greed.

    The article was a good read and made some good points. I don’t think the author went in to enough detail on the accounting side of things, in fact, he kind of glossed over it completely (you can’t just mention sales profit and not talk about running costs etc imo) – But still, the overall point remains.

    Good to see some articles out there, starting to question him and apply some pressure.

    SD is global, the share prices are up more than 500% – Mission accomplished Mike, now just go you parasite.

    Going to bed – I remember when supporting this club was fun. Bah humbug.

    jamie carragher gutted, hahaha saying liverpool could easily have scored 5 or 6 against newcastle, which to be fair they could do quite easily, to win the title on GD.
    Another bit of luck for pardew is it is out of liverpools hands now so depending on how city do , we might get off lightly on sunday .

    Still think we’ll get a good scudding off liverpool. They’ll be angry and just want to thrash us. Unfortunately regardless of the cricket score we’ll still have the bell wipe that is pardumb as manager.

    The Ransom I believe to be in the region of £300 million pound’s sterling..

    Failure to pay will result in the Club not receiving any monies in advertising sponsorship monies ..while the clubnapper uses that advertising Space , said to be worth about 12 million pounds per football season, to further his main interest in making millions of pounds for his sports clothing company and at the same time sticking uz with a debt of £130 million pounds that never comes down despite the £12 million quids worth of advertising each year.

    We have been Clubnapped and conned ..we are now NOT a Football Club. We are a financial institution.

    Some of you boys, and girls, need to keep up to speed. I posted about the Sir John Hall revelations months ago, revealing Mr “El Gourdo” Tubbs true intentions.

    “Mister Tuff // Nov 13, 2013 at 2:04 PM
    Posters have mentioned about hope and strategies. A supporters hope -is dreaming about playing great football, equaling the best, maybe winning something, creating superb entertainment – hope would be keeping those dreams alive.
    As for a strategy – we had heard about a five year plan, that seems to have died, we’ve heard about financial stability – very laudable – cannot disagree. What about a strategy on the playing side -or a style or philosophy -heard nothing about that.
    So what is the hope and strategy as far as the club are concerned – well that’s easy as there is evidence at hand.
    I post this not with the intention of being accused of being negative and not a true supporter -and therefore attract the usual insults and lies from windbags like bills -son – backed up by other windbags.
    Anyway – I believe the following quote should remind us all about the questions posed. Quotes are by Sir John Hall (not me).
    “I was told that the man behind the deal was Mike Ashley and I sat with his representatives over three days thrashing out a deal. I was keen to know why they wanted the club and they were quite honest. They wanted to market their sports goods in the Far East and would use the club to help do this.”

    manx – I only point out that in relation to the story being publicised (again) today -that I posted about it months ago.
    I was aware when the story first broke.
    I hope you’re not on the White Lightening cider again – probably not – that’s usually Saturday nights.

    We’re going to bring in Joe Cole AND Jack Colback! Phew weee haaa! What a team! With Shola re-signed. And a resurgent Gosling. Beautiful. Let’s pick up Alfonso Alves and John Carew as well! Good work Mike. Please stay on for another 7 years. By then nobody will even remember we had a football club to be proud of once upon a time.

    tuff i was only messin

    strange no 1 picks up the fact john hall also admits that other parties wanted to much time to do due dilligence tho

    that actually points to the fact that we were really in the brown stuff unless someone bought us without doing said due dilligence

    i’m not saying ashley saved us but it shows that john hall knew wat he wanted and signed the papers as soon as he could

    We are finally witnessing a definite change of attitude toward Ashley from the fans and the press, it seems. The ante has been raised, the pressure needs to be maintained. The tat trade, pay day loans, zero hour mentality will I hope be increasingly seen for what it is-exploiting the poor. It’s dystopian and even being doled out a competitive side wouldn’t change that. I want him to give back, but failing that which seems unlikely, I’d be delighted to see the fans revolt en masse and see the whole thing collapse around him. Who on Gods earth needs or deserves 3 billion pounds derived like that without seeing he HAS to do some good with it.
