Newcastle Drop One Place In Table – Bottom Two Sides Win


Everton got their third Premier League win in a row today when they beat a strong Southampton side 1-0 at Goodison Park, so that’s three successive league wins against Newcastle, QPR and today – the Saints.

John Carver – will try to win his first derby game tomorrow

Before we played Everton om 15th March Newcastle were  seven points ahead of the Toffees,  but three defeats in a row for the Magpies means that  Everton have gained 9 points on us in the last three games, and they are now 2 points ahead of us – and we drop to 13th place in the league.

🙁

But we have the game in hand tomorrow at Sunderland, and a win in that game would see us move up into 11th place, and we’ll stay there if Crystal Palace cannot beat Manchester City at home on Monday night.

The two bottom clubs won today – and that cannot be good news for Sunderland or Aston Villa for that matter.

Leicester City beat West Ham 2-1 at home, for only their 5th win this season, and QPR had a surprise 4-1 win at West Brom, and West Brom remain 2 points behind Newcastle.

QPR are now just one point behind Sunderland, so the Black Cats will need to start winning some games to stay up, but hopefully not tomorrow afternoon against Newcastle.

Newcastle remain 10 points ahead of 3rd bottom QPR.

Arsenal won their 7th league game in a row in the early game, as they easily beat Liverpool 4-1 at home, and Manchester United were impressive in beating Aston Villa 3-1 at Old Trafford and are now in 3rd place one point behind Arsenal.

If Newcastle beat Sunderland tomorrow we would be 13 points above the drop zone and essentially safe – although not mathematically safe.

    @OP: “If Sir Bobby Robson taught me anything – he was, like me, a Geordie, ya knar – it was that if we score more goals than we concede, we’ll win the game. That’s why we won so many with Alan Shearer – he was a, like me, Geordie too, ya knar – because he scored geet biguns ya knar.”

    Honestly, I’m waiting for him to get sacked for assaulting Saylor for claiming he’s more Geordie than Charver.

    We are playing for north east bragging rights like never before tomorrow.

    If we win, they’ll be bottom of the form table. If they win, we are.

    Makes your heart fair burst with pride doesn’t it?

    i actually gave Liverpool a good chance to turn over Arsenal today based solely on how we bossed them over the second half last game
    IF we play like that tomorrow, there is no doubt we will win comfortably but that should not affect Carver getting the job

    While I could do without Carver insinuating that victory tomorrow means he deserves the job, there can be no excuse for not wanting us to beat them.
    “Thou shalt not lose to Sunderland.”
    It’s the first commandment.

    I’m kinda glad saylors not around, imagine his fist pumping whilst Geordie johns beating his chest.

    I Reckon he’ll go for a knee slider If we score tomorrow but if he’s feeling full after his Greggs he may just punch a ball boy!

    Jail,

    Look back at the responses man. There are none.

    EVERYONE knows.

    There’s no need to waste your time on it.

    Derby Day. I wondered how you feel about it? It’s a real head v heart thing for me.

    Interesting article in True Faith by Michael Martin who has described Newcastle as “a zombie club, half alive, half dead, going nowhere”.
    I am not inclined to take that view. A victory tomorrow could change all that.

    Far better than Beckhams like. He’ll not get the same credit though because he’s a fat Scottish bloke.

    And we’ve turned ANOTHER teams season around. Much like we did for the scum last season.

    On a bad run? Play Newcastle.
    Not won away from home? Play at SJP.
    Haven’t scored a league goal for hours? Play us.

    Hoorah!

    It’s finkler. I have not disrespected you so please don’t be childish. You do need to think about unintended consequences both in football and in life. Your earlier ” The Boys from Brazil” approach could be viewed as offensive but fortunately I do not offend easily.
    My purpose for posting yesterday ( which was well received) was to determine my feeling as a reader that some long term bloggers felt that they bossed the blog. However, today I was met with open hostility by the very same individuals I had highlighted. It is always disappointing when misplaced loyalty comes to the fore. In the long run here and in life you are not respected. I do not hold out any real possibility that you will buy into any of this but I did try.
    I do agree with those who have stuck their head above the parapet that we should all post in harmony. Something which more than a few of us would welcome. We have lost some excellent posters off here as I am sure you will agree!
