Unless Newcastle can bring off a miracle, we will not get a win in our last three games and will finish the season with the worst collapse in the Premier League ever, and potentially lose our last 11 games.
Lee Charnley – where’s he been?
Think again about the summer Lee
If that happened in a public company, shareholders would be calling for the resignation of those at the top.
If we fail to win another game we will deserve to be relegated, and it has been brought onto the club basically by gross mismanagement at the top.
We haven’t needed help from anybody – we did all ourselves.
So all these reports today of signing players like Florian Thauvin, the 22 year-old Marseilles winger – will all go out the window.
And indeed until we get to the last game of the season against West Ham on 24th May in three weeks, things will be held in abeyance, until we know whether we will stay in the Premier League or go down to the Championship.
Normally under these conditions the fans will get right behind the team, but that may not happen, and in fact the opposite has taken place – such is the toxic atmosphere surrounding the club right now.
And that cannot help the players in trying to rescue the season – and hasn’t.
But it was always possible that we could be caught in the league, because of our very weak squad, and we reported on that possibility back on January 29th in this article.
Mike Ashley may go into action because we stand to lose £70M and more a year, and that figure will increase by 70% starting next year.
It will make the 20 clubs in the Premier League very rich compared to other European clubs – but not Newcastle.
This is a major crisis at the club make no mistake about that – and some crisis management from the top is necessary otherwise we’re sunk.
If Newcastle do get relegated this season, it will be the biggest and most dramatic collapse in Premier League history.
That wouldn’t be good.
