Sky Sports are reporting that eight clubs now are involved in the relegation scrap, and even though we are the 8th bottom club and 9 points above 3rd bottom QPR – we still have to play QPR at their place and John Carver’s record of 9 points from the last 36 points played for, and five defeats on the trot, say we are the team who could be caught unless we pick up some points shortly.
Mike Ashley – the villain at Newcastle
And if that does happen, we have only Mike Ashley and Lee Charnley to thank for that with the stupid decisions they made in the January transfer window and we would hope that we could pick up points in the next two home games against Tottenham and Swansea.
But the SackPardew crowd are back again, and after their success in getting Alan Pardew sacked – they still remain anonymous.
Pardew has done really well at Crystal Palace and has picked up 22 points in 11 games and they are now 4 points above us in the league, so that’s 14 points they have picked up on Newcastle this year.
And he has to be a candidate to win another Manager of the Year award if he keeps that record up in the final 7 games of the season.
It’s going to be very difficult for Newcastle to now pick up any home points this season, and in our last four away games we’ve lost every one of them – not scored a goal – and conceded nine goals.
So it’s not exactly that we can pick points up away from home, and QPR will be the favorites in that game coming up which will be crucial for Newcastle.
There will apparently be demonstrations before, during and after the game – and the SackPardew crew will encourage fans to stay away from the game and they want the lowest attendance this season to bring attention to the plight of the club under Ashley.
That will go a long way towards another home defeat or should we say home defeats.
Ashley is not good for the club – but this seems suicidal.
There is now a real possibility that Newcastle could be relegated because of the threadbare squad left, the inexperience of John Carver, the stupid decisions made by Lee Charnley and Mike Ashley in January – and now a group of fans – who remain anonymous – making big headlines nation wide – in an attempt to have fans boycott the remaining home games.
They will demonstrate before, during and after the games for good measure.
We are not in favor of that – as dire as the situation may be under Mike Ashley – because it means we could well be relegated – but from some articles we’ve read that would be fine if it helps to get rid of Mike Ashley.
We could well become another Leeds United – they were a great club but were relegated back in 2004, and have got nowhere near to making it back into the Premier League.
Now I know this will not be well received by some of the SackPardew crew and others, but be respectful and civil of other people’s opinions.
I want only the very best for Newcastle United and think that staying in the Premier league is paramount for us this season.
There’s got to be better way than this, to demonstrate the extreme dissatisfaction fans have with Mike Ashley.
