In what was supposed to be a home banker against Bristol City yesterday Newcastle again found a way to throw away two points and get only a 2-2 draw.
Letting two goals in the first half against a side who were missing their top scorer and who had found it difficult to score goals previously is a little bit damning for our defense, which is now looking a little leaky when crunch time is coming.
If we don’t get promoted this season it will be because of games against relegation sides who we somehow fail to beat and against second bottom Blackburn we lost both games.

If we don’t get promoted it will be certain that Rafa Benitez will leave the club – so that would not be good and another disaster for the club.
So there’s a lot more than just getting Premier League football back at St. James’ Park the lads are playing for next season.
Good sides don’t do that.
