Newcastle Sink Further Down The League After Yesterday’s Results

Newcastle dropped to 4th bottom of the league after yesterday’s results with both Swansea and West Ham winning their games.

Swansea got an excellent 1-0 home win – something we haven’t managed to do since way back in October.

They beat Burnley with an 81st-minute goal from Ki Sung-yueng as they continue to move up the table under new manager Carlos Carvalhal.

The Swans are now 2 points clear of us before today’s vital game at home to Manchester United.

And that’s the sixth league win since Carlos Carvalhal was appointed on 29th December: we only have 6 wins all season.

Carlos Carvalhal – doing great at Swansea

And West Ham beat Watford 2-0 at home, and the Hornets are in 11th place and only 5 points clear of  Newcastle.

A win today would take us into 13th place and above Brighton in the league on goal difference, but not too many are expecting a win today.

But that’s what we need if we are to survive this season and every game that goes by without Newcastle getting a win will take us further into the relegation quagmire.

And that’s for the fourth time in the last five Premier League season.

That’s Mike Ashley’s doing, and if he had invested in the summer like he had promised, we wouldn’t be in this mess.

But I am repeating myself.

We are hoping for a miracle and 3 points today.

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Manchester United?

    If by ‘Invested in the summer…’ you mean, if he (ashley) had been in the slightest bit interested.

    Just replying to a previous request, getting ready to go to the game, sun is shining, birds are singing but it’s cold, I might go a bit early to soak up the ambience around the city ,hoping for a sneaky 1-0 win, expecting a draw, dreading Man U hitting top gear and overwhelming us.
    I hope Slimani plays some part as we have 2 weeks after this to recover him but also understand the risks…..if we’re winning by 2 or 3 I wouldn’t risk him but if we’re drawing ,stick him on for to get the winner

    If we had a positive manager in charge like Carvalhal who isn’t scared to attack teams then we would be further up the table
