It Doesn’t Look Good For Newcastle


The teams in 4th bottom and 5th bottom places in the Premier League both won their Premier League games today and moved 3 points further ahead of Newcastle.

Norwich had a good but surprising 1-0 win at West Brom and Swansea won 1-0 at home against bottom club Aston Villa.

That was Swansea’s third win in the last four games and Norwich have now picked up 4 points in their last two games.

Rafa Benitez – Newcastle manager

The Canaries are now 5  points ahead of Newcastle in 4th bottom place on 29 points and Swansea move to 36 points and a full 12 points ahead of Newcastle in 6th bottom place.

Newcastle have two games in hand on both these clubs.

Crystal Place lost again today – this time 1-0 at home to league leaders Leicester – and moved down to 5th bottom place on 33 points.

In their 11 league games this year Crystal Palace have only 2 points with draws at home to Swansea and at Sunderland and 9 defeats – so they don’t look in good shape at all.

Newcastle have gained 8 points over the last 11 league games on Palace, but we have also lost our last four games.

Here’s what the bottom places look like after today’s games.

Crystal Palace38-1242

17Sunderland38-1439
18Newcastle38-2137
19 Norwich38-2834
20Aston Villa38-4917

The derby game between Newcastle and Sunderland becomes even bigger tomorrow – if that’s possible –  with both north-east clubs now second and third bottom of the league.

A defeat for Newcastle tomorrow would put us in even further trouble and we simply must win this game.

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Sunderland?

    I am in fact the most virtuous poster on this blog. Now that’s settled, football anybody?

    On a a serious note though, looking at the table, there’s more pressure on the players to get something out of tomorrow’s match than ever before.

    JFA – from last topic yes I did see it and while it was in bad taste it wasn’t sick like Tuff’s comment. My point is instead of simply apologising he pathetically tries to deflect attention on to Jib to argue that Sand dancer is a racist expression!

    It’s so ridiculously poised- if we win, we’re a point behind norwich with a game in hand, and them to play next.If we lose, then it’s basically beat norwich in two weeks or be relegated.

    Let’s be positive about tomorrow, and reassured that the mackems too will be shaken by norwich winning today. If norwich would have lost, I reckon mackems would have settled for a draw tomorrow, but now I think they’ll feel they have to get a win too.

    martoon – at the risk of you continuing your hissy fit -I did explain is was a joke – clearly the centre of my post was about multiple identities -as usual – and not about the murder of the Danish lass.
    You are wanting to believe something that is not there nor was intended. No doubt you will not accept my explanation which I make in all honesty.
    You can either accept that or not – I do suspect you won’t as it will not suit your agenda.

    However it is admirable that you chose to highlight something which concerns you.
    oh by the way where were your comments in response to all the abuse, filthy abuse aimed at others, the other racists comments, homophobia, xenophobia (manx spelled it right this time) etc etc.
    Lets me guess -you were on holiday, you looked the othe way, you did not see it,you were shopping blah blah blah. Or a bee stung you in the eye blah blah blah.
    #Show some uniformity to make your indignation more plausible.

    Jeff you are an entrenched mischief maker who posts Web results to give the illusion of insight, other peoples’ anecdotes to give the illusion of inclusion in society, and liberal nitpicking ‘jib’es to give evidence of your horrible personality.

    Ymfb – I’d take on board some of your proposed views if:

    1/. Jeff didn’t have previous
    2/. You didn’t have previous

    Perhaps you should dismount first before attempting to knock others off their high horses?

    Losing the derby would not be the end of the world. We have lost six in a row. We must get behind the team for every game until it is mathematically certain that we are going down. Even then we must rally the team in preparation for a promotion bid next season.

    Good evening lads. Nerves are creeping in big time!

    Can’t believe Norwich won away – does that mean a much higher points tally is required to ensure safety this season?

    Seems like only Villa are banker down.

    Why are you addressing remarks to a person who as far as I can tell hasn’t posted for years ?
    It’s very eerie and spooky a bit like Mr Tuffs posts are we dealing with a Jekyll and Hyde scenario here ?
