It’s still possible for Newcastle to stay up – if Sunderland get only one point in their last two games and we can beat Tottenham on the last day of the season we stay up.
But the chances of that happening are very remote and we really messed up by giving Aston Villa their first point in 12 games today – so it’s hard to say Newcastle should stay up when we cannot beat Aston Villa.
So it’s another bad result at Villa Park in a relegation season?
Here’s a sampling of the tweets from some despondent Newcastle fans – and who can blame them?
Such a big chance. Thrown away. Left it far far too late in the season. #NUFC

#NUFC are done for unfortunately. And I find all this 'Benitez might stay' talk fanciful, and quite desperate.
