Newcastle’s League Record Compared To Last Season – It’s Surprising


It’s weird that after our great home win on Saturday against Huddersfield we have 28 points and that’s the exact same number of points we had last season after 27 games.

Last season we had just beaten Manchester United at home 1-0 when Martin Dubravka was making his debut for Newcastle and had a great game.

Newcastle seem to be coming into form at the same time as last year and we only have Arsenal away and Liverpool at home of the top six teams still to face.

There’s even a decent chance if we can put a good string of wins together that we can beat the 44 points we gained last season.

Rafa Benitez congratulates captain Jamaal Lascelles after Saturday’s vital win

We’re sure that’s one target Rafa is aiming for – but as he says – we’ll take one game at a time and go all out to win it.

Next up are Burnley tomorrow night at home.

In our 28th game last season we drew 2-2 at Bournemouth.

We have won the same number of games, lost the same and drawn the same as last year at this time.

    Ed as long we have the same stats after 38 games it’s another huge win for Rafa, honestly I feel we are two to three players away from having a team that could push the top eight and maybe a Europa spot.

    I think this season has been more impressive considering the bad start we had with Rondon and Shelvey being out for good bits of the time as well!!

    If we were already sure of being in the PL next season I would of liked to have seen Rafa matching up to Burnley in a 442, with Rondon and Joselu up front. I don’t think the manager would use the tactic/formation but the spanish striker could benefit from someone playing up close with him.

    Good point I can’t see Everton in for him. And he’s probably better than Bristol villa and West Brom for me possibly Cardiff or Swansea although they’re poor too. I like Hayden a loan maybe ideal because if he stays in the side he may stay because we are the best option team wise he has for quality. So circumstances could change yet. And I think most of us are dreaming about the departure of the mighty jos

    For me there has been no progress at all, we done the survival bit last year. This season should have easily seen us sitting from eighth to 12th and being able to play full strength teams in the cup like Wolves. A year on and we’re still in a dog fight, an owner who hardly speaks with his manager and a chairman who won’t speak to anyone. This has been one of the most pointless seasons since Ashley got here and there have been a few that have been utterly pointless.

    Got to agree we are better In terms of depth if we can improve certain players. A striker Wingers and full back cover and somehow got Europa league next season which j dont think is likely. Pulling power for players increases as does morale because people in the background get more game time

    Compare our team with last season player for player as in the full squad we have gotten better if we did business early we would be in a better position in the league

    What a pointless comment. We have a much better squad now thanks to rafa and nickson etc and well done, for once, to Ashley for stumping up and getting the gig done. Hey jail, are you going to highlight that I praised rafa again? Nope, didn’t think so.
