Sky Sports Pundit Tips Newcastle For Relegation This Season

Sky Sports Soccer Saturday pundit Charlie Nicholas doesn’t seem to be a fan of Newcastle and last season he panned the club a few times as a Championship club, but we survived and finished in the top half of the Premier League,

But Nicholas still doesn’t think Newcastle have brought in the quality we need this summer and tips us for relegation next May.

Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas – thinks Magpies will be relegated

Here’s what the pundit has said about Newcastle:

“Newcastle are right on the edge of it with what has been going there this summer.”

“They did well to get the money they did for Aleksandar Mitrovic but they still can’t get quality in, although I do like Kennedy.”

“The only thing keeping this club together is the relationship between the fans and Rafael Benitez.”

“But I genuinely hope I’m wrong with fearing it could all fall apart.

On a much brighter note Sky Bet has the following clubs as favorites to be relegated:

Cardiff 4/6
Huddersfield 11/10
Fulham 15/8

Newcastle are 8th on the list at 5/1 behind Watford, Brighton, Burnley, and Bournemouth.

So there’s hope yet.

    Benitez was offered assurances that he could sign a centre-back and a left-back earlier this week, but he has hit a brick wall on some deals after being told the players don’t fit club criteria.

    “What’s the problem with Wellbeck?”

    …are you referring to the much sort-after, over paid, fragile, over rated, footballer? Perhaps…

    Reilly #118, that doesn’t make sense – unless you made it up – Rafa knows exactly the criteria.

    Logically then those who have been sold or put out on loan also ” don’t fit club criteria”

    So Jack Colback and Chancel Mbemba and others were good enough at one time so what changed Mike ?

    I think Ashley wants success, without putting any money in, along with a free ride for SD. Rafa will have to figure out if he can make it work, but it’s gotta be a long row to hoe if he buys in. The negativity is more than understandable, but not conclusive. But I’d agree it looks like it’s come undone, with an unholy mess to come, which might be needed anyways. As always we’ll see. The protests are timely and required no matter what.

    Rafa “seething”….
    from the Chronicle

    Stanley N’Soki of PSG has fallen through, again because of the asking price, this time £9million.
    ‘Federico Fernández was a straight-forward deal too but Newcastle aren’t keen on paying £10million for the Swansea defender.
    ‘As deadline day looms Benitez asked to sign two players at cut-price in Ragnar Klavan of Liverpool and an old target in Erik Pieters of Stoke City, but again hit a brick wall according to sources close to the deals in Holland and Estonia.’
