Unfortunately it looks like Sky Sports will be concentrating on the relegation games in the Championship for next Sunday, so Newcastle will not be shown live on TV.
Well there’s always the radio for those who cannot make the game.
The game against Barnsley and all Championship games kick off at 12:00 noon (7:00am US east coast time) and that’s obviously so Newcastle fans have enough time after the game to celebrate big time – in the Bigg Market.
Rafa Benitez arriving last March 11th to sign on for Newcastle
It’s been a tough but magical last 13 months for the Magpies
We had an easy 2-0 win at Cardiff City on Friday night and would you believe it, but Brighton lost their second game in a row – this time at home to Bristol City so we’ve gained 6 points on the Seagulls in the last two games.
So we have a chance of winning the Championship next Sunday if we beat Barnsley at home and Brighton don’t win at Aston Villa.
This is how the league stands.
And if for some strange reason any Newcastle fan is still not happy at our plight in the Championship just think if we were now in mid-table in the second division and were still in the Championship next season.
That’s the sorry plight of both Aston Villa And Norwich City who went down with us last May and were also favored to come straight back up – so give a thought for their fans.
And it’s the plight also of Sunderland AFC next season.
And if you don’t know who you should be thanking for all of this – don’t even think about it – it’s Mr. Rafa Benitez – Newcastle United manager.
Let’s make sure next Sunday for those at the game – that he really knows we love him and thank him for all he’s done and all he’s going to do for our great club!
In the ten years I have ran this blog (it’s been up and down and mainly down) I cannot remember being more proud of Newcastle United or more excited and happy at what the future holds than I am now.
There- I’ve said it.
Here’s some typical tweets from the upbeat Newcastle fans.
Already sealed promotion at SJP.
Imagine if we wrapped up the title on the last day there too!
