How Newcastle’s Record Compares To Last Season – They Are Identical Again



After 35 games played the records of Newcastle this season compared to last season are once again identical.

Newcastle have won 11, drawn 8, and lost 16 for 41 points.

And our goal difference is -9 having scored 35 goals and conceded 44 goals – same as last season.

Rafa Benitez – seems happy enough

Last season we lost our 35th game – it was a surprise 1-0 defeat at home to West Brom, who were relegated.

In the final three games last term, we lost to Watford at home and Tottenham away, before we crushed Chelsea 3-0 at home to end up 10th in the league on 44 points.

10th place may be out of reach for us this season, but four points in our final three games will beat last season’s points total of 44.

    Warnock will be the first manager Charnley contacts IF Rafa leaves.

    Of course we know that ‘We don’t spend what the club makes’ but we are local and take a keen interest in NUFC’s affairs.

    However, Bishop’d spin Rafa’s departure in a wag favourable to Ashley and like it or not, that works as exemplified by Owen’s statements yesterday.

    Like many posters have already stated, there is still time for Rafa to get signed up and until he advises he is leaving I will remain glass half full.

    Should he leave us this summer, IMO the replacement will be a certain type, a desperate yes man. Anybody with aspirations to win silverware or target Europe will certainly not be on the fat lads approved list of candidates.

    I was looking at it from a damage limitation perspective. Appointing a foreign manager without the baggage of Pulis, Hughes, etc. might reduce supporters’ anger.

    the way i see it the main focus of fans anger wont be on who’s coming in but the fact that Rafa’s leaving

    On the red card that never was – I think the real test of whether there was a scoring opportunity would be the defenders actions – he was the one who decided that he was very likely done by almiron, would not match his speed and would gift his opponent a one-on-one chance of beating his keeper, something he knew he was very capable of doing. He made the decision to body check him which is a dangerous challenge in itself. The referee did not need to assess the chances of Almiron succeeding, that was done for him. If it happened to us, genuinely i would have thought the defense was bang to rights and would be criticising the defence for not correctly marking the zone properly to avoid such an outcome.

    Straight red, no contest, every day of the week. But not against the Toon apparently – no, for us it has to be argued to death. If we were playing man utd or Chelsea etc not only a red card but the player would have been beheaded on the centre spot as a warning to others. 🙂

    Do you think if that had been Shelvey or say Mitrovic body checking an opponent they would have been red carded and banned for five games. Honestly we get nothing. They never stopped fouling Almiron. He got no protection.

    Carltoon – and that the problem, it gives a green light to managers tactical approach to use thing tactics at will. The sort of approach that got Ben Arfa badly injured and not even a yellow card. It’s laughable that not only the players but the sport can’t be protected under such custodians. Shows what happens when refs are tutored to sift through rules and regulation minutae instead of overseeing a game played in its proper spirit.
