Two Of Last Three Seasons – The Worst Ever For Newcastle

Thursday, June 25th, 2015 · 38 Comments

It was always going to be difficult to get new (good) players into the club this summer, and that’s proving to be an accurate forecast after one of the most disruptive and poor seasons we have had in a while.

We finished with only 39 points in 15th place last season, and that was two points less than we managed two years ago, when we were 5th bottom – 16th.

In fact two of the last three seasons have been the second and third worst points total we have ever had in the Premier League – beaten only by the 34 points we got in 2009 when we were relegated.
