Can Newcastle Beat Southampton On Saturday?

7:32 pm, Tuesday, April 5th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 9 Comments

We’ll probably need to win four or five of our last seven games in order to stay in the Premier League for next season.

Next up is Southampton at St. Mary’s – yes another away game – and hopefully the extra training and work Rafa and the coaches will have put in with the players this week will help us put in a good performance and hopefully get the win we desperately need.

It’s about time we broke our eight game losing streak on the road.

Here’s hoping.

    Drop Cisse , Wijnaldum , Sissoko , Anita and Taylor and replace with Mitrovic , Perez , De Jong, Mbabu and Lascalles and we may just have a chance !

    We can’t even beat, Norwich, Sunderland or Bounemouth, so what makes you think we will beat them, when was the last time we beat them away.

    Ain’t matter how much training they put in – if you do not play as a team ie. the TOON then you are not going to win.
    If you cannot link up between defence midfield and attack then you are not going to win.
    If players don’t run for each run past each other pass to each other at pace – you’re not going to win.
    If you cannot defend – you are not going to win.
    when you give stupid free kicks away you’re not going to win
    If you cannot score more than the opposition you are not going to win.

    SADLY that sums up Newcastle disunited

    To answer your question Ed I’ll keep it simple- HELL NO!!

    Whats our hope of beating Southampton, answer Bobe Hope, and no Hope, we are beyond any doubt going down, and under Ashely we totally deserve to go down, our club is a sick joke from top to bottom, and has been from the moment Ashely bought our club. Rge only thing that is class about our club is the amazing loyal fans, the rest of the club is a sad joke, in life you usually get what you deserve, and my god ashely does not deserve to run any premier league club, and for sure not a great and proud club like Newcastle United. PS. Ashely please take your horse and cart, and get to hell out of our club for ever, your not wanted at Newcastle, enough is enough.

    Nice to see the plastics are back to blaming the real fans for all our problems. Happy clappers? Nobody is happy, but you’ll never understand what being a participant in a club is actually about. We give our total committment, time, effort and money into supporting our club, not sit in the background talking shyte. I’m frankly fed up of the pc brigade. It’s fine for them to call loyal supporters happy clappers – a total load of tosh – but somehow wrong for us to tell uncomfortable truths – such as they’re plastic fans. If anybody who doesn’t spend his money and give up his time and effort, believes they’re equal to those who do, are on cloud cuckoo land. The one thing this club is famous for is the loyalty of its fans, yet you nomarks think you have the right to call that a fault?! Who do you seriously think you are? Any club would be proud to have fans like ours, but you, who don’t go to games and never have – or are unlikely to in the future – think you have the right to slag us off for our loyalty?! Nobody at NUFC knows you exist and care for your opinions even less than we do. That loyalty is totally outside your comprehension. You can shove your p.cness where the sun doesn’t shine. You clearly didn’t do due diligence when you jumped on the KK bandwagon, or you would know that was a blip. If winning means that much to you, you backed the wrong pony.

    No, Newcastle cannot beat Southampton. Nor the rest of the teams we will face before finally relegated.
