Sky Pundit Has Good News For Newcastle Fans

10:53 pm, Friday, October 30th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 9 Comments

Sky Sports pundit Phil Thompson has named the three club he thinks will be relegated this season from the Premier League, and the good news is he thinks Newcastle United will have enough to get out of trouble.

We hope that´s sooner rather than later.

Most Newcastle fans are worried in case we will have a season fighting relegation and then in the worst of all worlds we would be relegated next May.


This is what Phil has said about the three teams he think will be relegated next May:

“I know Sunderland won last week but it was against 10 men so I don’t see it changing much and I can see them still being down there.” 

“Aston Villa can’t defend, they can’t score goals, so they look like they’ll be in trouble.

“Then there’s Bournemouth, who were probably already a lot of people’s bets to be down there, but I think having long-standing injuries, basically one key player in each department, has done it for them.”

“Then they’ve got Artur Boruc in goal making mistakes, so it doesn’t bode well for them this season.”

We´re still not sure exactly what team we have with Newcastle this season although in the last two games we looked good in  patches but we have only got three points out of those two games – which followed our 6-1 collapse at Manchester City.

What do you think?

Comments welcome.

    Fail, how very typical of you. You’re the one with foot and mouth you pillock. Ever once thought of engaging your brain before operating your mouth? When somebody says they’ve had bad news, it’s normal to tread careful before letting off both barrells. It doesn’t usually mean they’ve lost a toenail you idiot, it means bad news. Fail by name, fail by nature. Tosspot.

    How long did your dad have it if you don’t mind me asking.

    Terrible news mate.. U need to stay positive and more importantly keep ur dad in a good frame of mind. That’s half the battle. I know its easier said than done, but it does help.
    A friends dad was diagnosed with lung cancer and was given 5 months… Its been 2 years now, n he’s alive and kicking… Better than ever.

    Welshie, Look into this drug ( Nivolumab). Its the newest treatment out here in the states for Lung Cancer. I am sure it available in the UK. Hope this helps.
