Newcastle Fans On Twitter React To Likely Relegation


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?

    We have 15 games of the regular season left
    LET ME CATEGORICALLY STATE
    If Colo remains fit and stays in the starting line up we will be relegated come end of May
    IF COLO PLAYS IN 13 or MORE OF OUR REMAINING GAMES WE WILL BE RELEGATED in May

    the difference with west brom….rondon and berahino…they score….cisse mitro dont

    Mitro has a goal every 25 minutes played this season. Rondon every 341 minutes played. Berahinho every 248 and Cisse every 339.

    Pretty even really.

    when we finished fifth in the league how did the club build on that platform?
    they sold the best striker we had since shearer then proceeded to cock up the purchase of his replacement and made up for it all by bringing in one defender
    im pretty certain pardew and carr didnt play a role in that fiasco

    Please fire Lee Charnley as he has only made bad decisions. Even Rafa was too late so not a good one either.

    Jail,
    Yup, players weren’t good enough – haven’t been in any of the crucial games since Rafa took over. Not Rafa’s fault, it is just a continuation of the last few years. Put it in for a bit, generally when ‘big’ clubs are involved. Then relax/drop off when playing lesser lights. Rafa’s biggest games were Norwich, Sunderland and today. In each we barely got a rise from most of them, and when we did it was too little too late.

    I said something similar prior to the home match against Villa after beating Spuds and Liverpool. It is an attitude problem, not talent.

    Springy,

    I forgot to change it, Mitro is one every 251. For a debutant season at a young age in a team that has struggled that is pretty commendable. He probably should have had more, but I’d rather he played week in week out and cared about the club than have Berahinho (putting myself in a West Brom fans shoes) who wanted out asap.

    C’mon fellas …pick yourselves up!
    We beat an out of form Palace last weekend at home and suddenly we needed two players for a top 10 side.
    We draw with Villa and people are picking their Championship squads. All season we’ve won the ones we should lose and flopped in the ones we should win and we’ve followed good with not so good.
    As I’ve said before, we fans are either flying the stratosphere or crash-landing.
    We are not down yet.

    i dont hate mitro,i actually think he’s a decent young player but he is young and needs help and guidance and being in a side thats struggling is not the best place to learn a new league,team…his confidence would of taken a battering this season.

    Jail,
    14 was posted before I saw your post.

    No time to criticise? Not sure what you mean? I think it is exactly the time to criticise certain aspects of the attitudes and application (ability in some cases) of people throughout the club. Players, board, coaching staff etc.

    Wolfshead,
    Yes, we lost Ba. Not sure what we could have done to prevent that to be honest. We agreed a deal which benefitted us if his knee went (after failing various medicals) and he agreed a deal that benefitted him if it didn’t. It worked out better for him in the end, but I struggle to find fault with the club for that.

    Lack of strengthening, lack of building, sure. You can point the finger at ashley on those counts. Was there still enough ability in the squad to do better? To be better utilised? To finish higher than 16th. Definitely. Point the finger at who you want for that, I’d say a large part of that season was down to Pardew.

    I’m not just talking one summer though. I’m talking about the entire time since our promotion. That isn’t just 1 man.

    Springy,
    In fairness I was surprised how much better Mitro had done than Rondon. Ihad thought all except Cisse were fairly close without checking.

    He needed help all season, and he needed pace and movement around him – plus someone who can cross. Latterly we have had some of that in Townsend. We haven’t created enough, but at the same time he has had chances he should have done better with – not sure on today, horrendous bounce for one, and unlucky with his angled header.

    I think we can use him as a platform next season. Sissoko and Gini will be gone, Arma and Townsend/Aarons playing off him either side will cause defences problems.

    I’m with you on this BandB. My Championship side is basically to show we can bounce back if the worst happens. We can still survive and until mathematically we are down, i ain’t giving up hope. Everton do look pants though! 😉 I refuse to accept what now looks inevitable, because i am an optimist. I truly thought we would beat villa today and it’s knocked the wind out of me. Can everton beat sunlun? I suppose so and sunlun might be complacent, thinking it’s a done deal. Be just like this season though, if everton do win. Just a matter of seeing what wednesday brings. Fingers crossed.

    BandB,
    My lack of confidence in staying up is less in my faith in us to do Spurs and more to do with how awful Everton have become under Martinez, and how Watford haven’t exactly been setting the world alight since the turn of the year.

    I actually think we will beat Spurs, but I also think both Sunderland and Norwich will pick up points from Everton and Watford.

    sorry im still not buying it any owner with real ambition would have seen that as an opportunity to push on an pump money in to the team

    they let demba go because of his wage demands even though he cost nothing ashley wanted to be seen as a hard headed business man and wouldnt give in which shows he is a football idiot and is going to get us relagated again

    Wolfshead,
    I fully agree, any owner with ambition would have looked to kick on from there. That is not what I’m saying. The buck stops with Ashley, as he clearly said last year (before quickly announcing it wasn’t his door to answer any more), but others have played a significant part as well.

    I guess my pony is, there shouldn’t really be anyone in a senior position, playing or off field that can really escape blame. Of course, this is entirely my thoughts on it, and I get the arguments against Ashley, and that he is the sole cause of our demise.

    Still, if it was me working for a boss who couldn’t give two hoots, I’d still put in the effort to do my best. It wouldn’t always be my best, because we are all human, but I like to think I have a modicum of personal pride and even when I know I’m not really up for it or at my best, I’d still try my best to put in a shift. Can you honestly say everyone at the club has done that?

    Many also thought it was inevitable we would beat Villa today.
    In my experience footballers are odd creatures.
    The Mackems could think they have cracked it and ease up a fraction on Wednesday. This will be haunting Allardyce right now.
    Minuscule changes of attitude in sport make all the difference between winning and losing.
    It’s theirs to lose now.
    After four years of being slated as a negger, it is amusing to be told to take my positivity elsewhere now 🙂

    On a completely separate note, I am (probably contrary to what most think I’d think) delighted that Ben Arfa may get a chance at Barca. Whether it is the right move, as he will struggle to displace Messi, Neymar, or Suarez, unless one leaves, is a different after.

    Maybe he will look back on being released by Pardew and Ashley (of all people) as the catalyst that made him entirely reevaluate how he carried himself in training, during games and in his career.
