Newcastle had just come off our fourth loss in a row when we lost 1-0 at Tottenham to a Harry Kane goal in our penultimate game of the season last year.
After winning four games in a row we lost four games in a row, but we were safe,
It’s not too unlike this season.
We did finish 10th last season on 44 points, and if we beat Fulham on Saturday, we can get to 45 points.
But the best we can in the league is a 13th place finish – if we win on Saturday and Bournemouth lose at Crystal Palace.
But we can say the points are more important than the place and claim victory?
Given few other legitimate options – yes – we can do that.
We do think we will be close to the £123M we got last year from the Premier League becasue outside the top six clubs, Newcastle are the most televised club this season, and we get money for that.
You could see on Saturday why Newcastle are a favorite team for TV to cover – Rafa’s performance on the touchline line itself – is well worth the admission price!
He’s the consummate professional and perfectionist.

We can only hope for the win next Saturday and get to 45 points – that would be satisfying – after another tough season.
But then what happens next?
Where’s Mike Ashley?
