Newcastle have been an absolutely disaster after the win we had against Aston Villa on February 28th, and we’ve lost nine and had one draw in our last 10 games – and we’ve lost to Sunderland, Leicester and now QPR – all teams below us in the league – and we are doing nothing at all to help ourselves – and because of that we even deserve to go down.
Other sides in relegation trouble are fighting like their lives depended on it – not at Newcastle – and Leicester City are now safe after drawing at Sunderland and picking up an amazing 19 points from the last 24 played for, and gaining 17 points on Newcastle in that time-frame.

Hull City put in a fighting performance at Tottenham today but lost 2-0, and now to stay up Steve Bruce’s side have to beat Manchester United next Sunday at home, and that’s not beyond them with the cord right behind them at the KC Stadium.
What Newcastle should be doing is going all out to win the game and at least finish the season on a high after the lows of the last three months.
And we are hoping the AshleyOut crew will let up in this game and that St. James’ Park will be packed full and cheer on the lads to victory, which will ensure we stay in the Premier League after what has been another horrendous season.
We cannot see Newcastle beating West Ham – but we want to see 100% effort in both halves.
We have had too many games when we’ve been reasonable in one half and disastrous in the other half.
This is like a living nightmare – especially when you have to write about this stuff (I could call it other things).
Here is John’s overall record since Alan Pardew left the club – it’s not good.
