This Is A Massive Point – Newcastle Can Avoid The Drop


If Newcastle can beat QPR next Saturday and Hull don’t beat Spurs away we will be safe – so there’s a chance for Newcastle if we can keep picking up points in our last two games.

And today’s result – although not a win – will be massive because it will give our lads a lot of confidence – which has been on the decline for the last eight games.

And next week at QPR hopefully, we’ll have a good back four with Colo and Dummett in the center – and Cisse, Aarons and even Siem de Jong could be brought on during the second half.

In fact we dropped further down the table today as Sunderland, Leicester and Aston Villa all won their games for the second week running.

So it looks like it’s between Newcastle and Hull who go down – and Hull surprisingly lost 1-0 at home to Burnley, which is a big defeat for Hull given they have to play at Tottenham and at home to Manchester United in their last two games.

But you just never know with these final games of the season, and Newcastle probably need one win in our last two games – and that should save us.

We were convinced we would lose today – but it was a boost that Paul Dummett played and another boost that young wonder-kid Perez scored again for us.

Hey, if we do avoid relegation this season then  this lad’s goals have saved us and he’s be a hero.

Let’s get right behind the lads in the last two games, and try very hard to save our Premier League status, even though we know we’ve screwed a lot of times this year.

If we can beat QPR next week and Hull don’t win at Tottenham – we are safe – but I think I already said that.

    I’d like to say thank you to the best manager in the EPL and geordie loving Steve Bruce for keeping us up.

    Hull can get something out of the Spurs game that’s my worry, Harry Kane has 1 goal in his last 6 games, which was against us, he’s been worked out and is starting to struggle which has meant Spurs as a team have started to struggle!!

    My prediction for today’s match on here yesterday was 1-1
    I went to the bookies today and took 2-1 Cisse mainly because it was 60/1

    Oh well a quid down the pan 😉

    That said, Spurs look like they are finished and Hull might be able to get one on them. We need a win at QPR and that will be tough but a tie does us no good as are goal difference is baaaaaddd.

    2 things which were very apparent in today’s game. Ryan Taylor is shite, gave it away constantly and his set pieces aren’t good either.

    Cabella is god awful, it’s all good going past players but where is the end product? I’d take a fat lazy HBA who used to get slated for being inconsistent and only turning up once every 5 or 7 games. Has Cabella even turned up this season? His final ball is so poor.

    The other way to look at it is that Spurs will rebound from a few bad performances.

    Apparently the players still haven’t spoken a word to Carver.

    They haven’t fallen out again , they just didn’t want to interrupt him.

    To my mind and given the fact Carver said that the meeting on Monday gone, only involved the players. Carver and his staff were not part of that meeting.

    That, coupled with Carvers relaxed demeanor prior to kick off indicates to me that he (Carver) had very little to do with the way the team was setup today. I beleive the players decided how they would set up and play.

    They appeared less disjointed, playing off the front foot with more freedom.

    Just my observation.

    I think we are lucky because Willo is suspended. And we no longer need to be agitate by the Willo Dead Ball.

    Now we can finally have someone else at the end of the ball and Colo did quite well today for the role.

    If WBA gave it a go today they’d have won, surprised they came to defend. Still plenty of squeaky bum moments.

    Pullis plan today was to keep it tight and do us on set pieces, kind of what I expected.

    It’s the size of the job ahead that worries me. With Ashley and Charnley in charge we have no hope of re-building properly. He’ll tinker a bit in the summer but we’ll be one of the poorest sides in the Prem to start next season (I believe we’re safe now).

    We could lose to QPR and draw with West Ham at home. Hull could beat Spurs and the lose against Man Utd. Sunderland will probably draw with Leicester and lose their last two. It could be down to goal difference.

    As an overall performance at home with relegation on the line we were dire. That’s what comes of 8 years of Ashley. No question about it, we will continue to be in trouble and poor for as long as Ashley stays.

    Can see Hull beating Spurs. Sunderland need to lose their last two by a bi scoreline. A point against QPR would be a great result. QPR shouldn’t have gone down with their players

    Imagine we had kept HBA to play alongside Perez and De Jong?
    Kept Cabaye. Bought Remy outright.
    Brought in just a single experienced defender, even if it was just someone like Robert Huth?
    And a manager like Koeman to build a team around what we had. A team to play football.
    How many more millions would that have cost? With all these millions of TV money rolling in?
    Who would be divided or unhappy?

    Assuming Man City take QPR (which I expect they will do) QPR will have been relegated by the time we meet them next week. I wonder how that might affect their game!

    Thank god for King John.

    His selection, set-up and tactics were perfect and even Real Madrid couldn’t have survived the onslaught.

    Free-flowing attacking football with a defence that was disciplined and solid.

    Set pieces? Wonders to behold.

    Just think of the resource are available to one of the world’s best coaches and we can only reflect on the years of neglect we’ve had to endure before our saviour, Mike Ashley came along.

    He surely must get a gong in the Queen’s birthday honours for his services to football.

    I know theres a lot of Jonas buddies on here but i still don`t see what he gives us.
    He made a couple of decent Challenges but going forward he really slowed us Down and always tries a few extra touches.
    And our very own red haired Pirlo was dreadfully slow today.
    Sissoko,Dummett(5 times better at Reading te play than Willo) and Anita Our best players today
