Sky Sports have issued the table of the Premier League over the four vital Premier League games when Newcastle picked up two wins and a draw – 7 valuable points.
And it shows Newcastle in 5th position behind Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea in that order.
That’s probably the position we will finish in next season assuming Ms. Amanda Staveley buys the club soon and allows Rafa Benitez to invest in new players this summer.
Rafa Benitez – good record over festive season
Here’s the table of those four games and we are one point above both Manchester United and Arsenal.
With away wins against relegation rivals West Ham and Stoke City – that allowed us to complete a double over those clubs and we are now 13th in the Premier League table.
Newcastle face bottom club Swansea City on Saturday at home, and if we can win that vital game, it will be our third double of the season, even though we would have only seven wins in total in the league.
But that position of 5th is around where we would hope to be in a year or two if Amanda Staveley and her PCP Capital Partners group buys the club early this year.
We need for Mike Ashley to sell up and leave – he’s been an awful owner for Newcastle and primarily responsible for our slide over the past 10 years.
This all assumes we can avoid relegation this season of course.
But it’s worth looking on the sunny side – if only briefly – and we just hope we can continue our good form of late in the league.
Heres where we are at the moment in the Premier League.
