Nightmare Gets Closer – Can Newcastle Beat West Brom – Poll

7:15 am, Friday, February 5th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 10 Comments

Tomorrow´s game is an important one because we seem to get most of our points at home and after this game we have two games on the road at Chelsea and at Stoke and most people wouldn´t think we can much out of those games.

Not if our away form at Everton is anything to go by.

But if we cannot beat West Brom then Newcastle nightmare of being relegated after paying out £81M on new players since last season would be one step closer – one game closer.

Seydou Doumbia – could make his debut tomorrow

We are also in a slump of only 4 points from our last seven league games.

    Morning Ron…the WBA game you say! I don’t know to be honest. I suppose it depends on whether I have something better to do.

    I don’t like to pick but please will you stop using the word “can”! Of course they “can” just like in the poll that asked “can” McClaren be a success, again of course he “can” it is a possibility of you had of asked “will” that McClaren poll would have had markedly different results! As for west brom, I think we’ll probably win.

    We’ll beat West Brom at home. If we don’t beat them at St James (after they drew to Swansea and Aston Villa) then we’ll need divine intervention a mgnr change won’t be enough.

    If we do beat them and get back on track I can see points out of both the Chelsea and Stoke fixtures on the trot and a win at home to Bournemouth.

    All in all given we are in the drop zone our schedule is pretty favourable with fixtures against West Brom, Bournemouth, Mackems and Norwich (all within 8 points in next 7 or so matches).

    Season ain’t over yet.

    Hoping for a loss which would probably bring the disaster of the McClaren tenure to an end. Charnley and Carr next heads in the chopping block, but that might have to wait till the end of the season.

    “on” the chopping block, but you probably got the drift…

    After watching in despair on Wednesday at the tactics of the Wally I can only expect another embarassment. I am afraid to say we bought another bunch of wasters to give us any hope. Sissoko,Gini and Shelvey were non existant and offered nothing and I am now accepting our fate with the most expensive team to be relegated. Well another weekend spoilt.

    Can’t believe someone “hoping for a loss?????”

    Would be brilliant to win and McClaren leaves too, but I must be delusional if I think theirs half a chance of that happening lol
