You know Fulham were always a favorite side of ours and the in-form Craven Cottage side this afternoon simply hammered Huddersfield 4-1 at John Smith’s Stadium, even though the Terriers went ahead with a penalty after just four minutes of the game
That means the best the Terriers can do is 87 points, so a win by Newcastle giant Preston will see us promoted and at St. James’ Park.
We need 2 points from the last three games to be promoted and no points at all if the Terriers don’t win all three of their remaining games.
Rafa Benitez – Rafa Benitez – Rafa Benitez – Rafa Benitez
Reading lost 3-2 at Nottingham Forest and can only equal Newcastle current total of 85 points so because of our better goal difference that cannot top us now.
Premier League – here we come!
Here’s the current league positions at the top of the Championship with Fulham now winning four games in a row and likely playoff favorites and their goal difference is great too.
If our players want to experience one of the greatest nights of their football careers, they will turn up and hammer Preston.
But in truth all we really need to do is win the game and the roof will be blown off St. James’ Park.
Part one of the Rafa revolution will have been successfully completed.
Now to win that Champions League!
And don’t forget Rafa risked his career to manage Newcastle United in England’s second division- he’s a class act.
Did I say he was also a world-class manager?
Howay The Bonnie Lads!!
