We have to hope that results go for us this weekend before we take on Arsenal on Monday night at the Emirates.
But you never know what’s going to happen in relegation related games, but all eyes will be on Cardiff City, Burnley, and Southampton.
Burnley play Wolves at home today, and Brighton play Southampton at the Amex Stadium.
If the Saints win that game, they will go level on points with Brighton.
It would help Newcastle if Burnley and Southampton both lose today, and then tomorrow Cardiff play at home to Chelsea.
As we said, anything can happen in these games.
But if Cardiff do lose at home tomorrow, we will be 7 points ahead of them with a much better goal difference, and then we could even extend that at the Emirates on Monday night.
Rafa hinted yesterday a deal could still be done to stay on board as said this in the Chronicle:
“I always say the same, concentrate on the games.” “We have to do what we have to do.”
“The job is still not done.””We have to concentrate on games and then we will have time to talk about the future.”
“But for me I am just concentrating on talking with Newcastle and see where we can go.”
“I talk with Lee Charnley sometimes, but I am just concentrating on the games for now.”
“The risk for us in the international break and at this stage of the season the players are a little bit tired.”
“Then they have to find another way to train.”
“It is dangerous for us as we have little knocks but nothing serious.”
Fans are becoming just a little anxious as we will be into April on Monday and Rafa has only weeks left on his contract at Newcastle.
Once we are safe in the league Rafa’s contract can be sorted out, and hopefully, he will stay with us – and for a long time in the future.
