We have put out two polls out in the last day or two – one asks whether fans think Newcastle will be relegated this season – and the other is on how we’ll do at Leicester City on Saturday, which is really a relegation six pointer.
Nigel Pearson – when he was a coach at Newcastle in 2008
And unfortunately the fans have been fairly accurate over the last several games on how the games are go – the though we would lose every one of them – so if they are right again on Saturday it will not be good news at Leicester City.
And as far as relegation goes there was a slight majority yesterday who thought we could be safe this season, but maybe because of Hull’s great 1-0 win at home to Liverpool last night, which put them just one point behind us with a much better goal difference – that brought out voters who think we will in fact be relegated.
Either way it’s a close run thing.
There’s still time to vote in both polls, but we allow only one vote per reader in all our polls – so we can get a true cross-section of what supporters think.
Maybe we can do something to help yourselves on Saturday – and actually win the game?
Wouldn’t that be something.
Let’s put it this way – if we lose for the 8th successive time at Leicester, there should be loud alarm bells going off at St. James’ Park.
But maybe not – we really don’t know what the higher-ups at the club are thinking right now because they don’t talk to us – it seems they only put out statements theses days to defend Sports Direct.
What a terrible way to run a football club.
