Newcastle lost their 8th game of the last 9 yesterday at the Emirates but it was only 1-0 when most pundits thought it would be worse.
Newcastle played quite well but each defeat we get we are digging a bigger hole to get out of.
We are now 3rd bottom and unless things are turned around quickly it will prove a huge test to stay in the Premier League this season.
Mesit Ozil – scores winner after 23 minutes
It was on a day when both West Ham and Crystal Palace won 3-0 away from home and go above Newcastle in the table.
And Huddersfield Town won 4-1 at Watford so unless we start picking up points we could be in a poor position come January.
We also cannot see any takeover happening in the next two months.
If we can survive Amanda Staveley may make a move in May but the more defeats we rack up the less chance of any takeover.
This is not positive but it’s the reality – unfortunately.
