We issued a poll last week asking fans where they think Newcastle will finish in the league this season, after four games fans will have got some idea how we are doing, although Steve McClaren keeps cautioning to wait for 10 games to be played.
That’s not surprising because we play the top four teams from last season in the first eight games, plus Swansea and Southampton – both top eight finishers last season – so it’s a very tough start to the season.
Steve McClaren – he looks happy enough
Here are the results of the poll so far – and there’s still time to vote.
So what does this mean?
We’re not sure, but let’s take a look.
- 10% think we will reach our goal of a top 8 finish
- 87% think we will finish between 9th place and 17th place
- 2% think we will finish in a Champions League position
- 3% think we will be relegated
The main conclusion here is that almost 9 in 10 fans think we will finish between 9th and 17th place.
Certainly not a top eight finish but hey – not relegation either.
What do you think?
Note: A number of Newcastle fans organized by Callum Taylor are raising funds for the Refugees forced to leave war-torn countries like Syria. They will have some banners at the West Ham game.
