Today three clubs beneath Newcastle in the league table won their games and gained 3 points on Newcastle, and of course Leicester won be demolishing us 3-0, to come within one point of Newcastle and lo and behold Sunderland beat Southampton 2-1 and Aston Villa beat Everton 3-2 and they go above Newcastle on goal difference.
We are now just two points above third bottom Sunderland, but the Black Cats have a better goal difference and a game in hand. In fact all the teams below us except Burnley have a better goal difference and that’s worrying.
Mike Ashley – owner of Newcastle
Hull City also have a game in hand and they are at home to Arsenal on Monday night, and if they win that game they will both go above Newcastle.
So if Newcastle don’t pick up another point this season, there’s a good chance we will finish 3rd bottom – as we did six years ago – and be relegated.
It’s not looking good for Newcastle, and we started today 5 points above the drop zone and we thought 35 points was not going to be enough, but it also looks like Burnley and QPR are going down and we play QPR in two weeks.
Wonder if we can beat QPR?
