This Is Not Good News For Newcastle

Thursday, May 21st, 2015 · 42 Comments

In order to remain in the Premier League and save ourselves, we have to beat West Ham on Sunday – but there’s a very low 14% in our poll for the game, that think we can do that.

Who Are Odds-On Favorites For Relegation?

We’re Desperate For It Not To Happen Again

Thursday, May 21st, 2015 · 4 Comments

It’s either Hull City or Newcastle United who will take the drop on Sunday afternoon, and it will send shock waves throughout Tyneside if it’s the Magpies who are relegated for the second time in six seasons under Mike Ashley.

If that happens it will have been the greatest collapse in Premier League history over the last 11 games – although for Newcastle fans there’s nothing great about it.

It’s Not Surprising – No Plans Are In Place

Thursday, May 21st, 2015 · 9 Comments

With the way Newcastle seem to operate these days, where they never seem to think ahead about much at all, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Newcastle have no contingency plans should we be relegated.

However, in this particular case there will be time after Sunday to completely reset on which players will be coming in, which players will be leaving and who the new manager will be.
