Newcastle Are Officially Safe After Wednesday’s Results

Newcastle United are officially safe after Wednesday’s fixtures despite dropping to 14th in the league table. Leeds’ 3-0 defeat against Chelsea has secured Newcastle’s place in the division for next season.

Leeds, who occupy the 18th position in the league, are now 9 points behind The Magpies with two matches remaining thus confirming safety for Newcastle. Leeds are in serious trouble of returning to the Championship.

In other results, Everton fail to pick up a third straight win as they only achieved a 0-0 draw at Watford. The Hornets’ fate of relegation was sealed with their 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace this past weekend.

Leicester defeated Norwich 3-0 at The King Power Stadium to leap Newcastle in the table. The Foxes still have one match in hand which could pose problems for Newcastle’s push for a top ten place.

Here is a look at the updated league table.

Newcastle can match their 2013/14 points total of 49 with a win against Arsenal and at Burnley to close this season. The fact that Newcastle are now safe is a testament to Eddie Howe’s impact since his arrival.

    I would love to see us sign Victor Osimhen. He reminds me of Asprilla. Would be a hit here.

    From Nufc.com
    “Six years to the day that relegation was rubber-stamped by a 3-0 mackem victory over Everton, Newcastle’s Premier League safety was mathematically confirmed without kicking a ball on Wednesday night.

    A 3-0 win for Chelsea over Leeds United at Elland Road tonight left the eighteenth-placed Whites nine points behind the Magpies with just two games left.

    To have recovered from what looked like the hopeless position of one victory and just 12 points from our first 20 games of the season is a remarkable achievement – with the mid-season transfers only one part of the story.

    Wherever we go from here and whoever ends up wearing the black and white shirt, the class of 2022 deserve massive credit for restoring some belief, integrity and pride to the club and the supporters.

    For Eddie Howe it’s a personal triumph and for the club a vindication of their decision to appoint him; top-flight survival priceless to owners for whom the loss of face that would have accompanied relegation was incalculable.

    While reaching this point in previous seasons was the limit of our ambitions though, things are rather different on Barrack Road these days. Tonight was the first building block – and hopefully the cornerstone of future success.

    If you’re raising a glass, the toast is:

    “the fella from Bournemouth who got a team relegated.”

    Aye…the boys done well…was it ever in doubt 😉

    We’ve also found out who can play proper football and who cant.

    When you look at Man city…all the players are of a certain type…they are all of average height, have quick feet, quick minds, theyre constantly moving, even the centre backs have quick feet and can pass.

    Everyone questioned Pep dropping our then england no 1 keeper…because he wanted everyone playing football…not hoofball.

    We now know everyone who cant cut the mustard…and they’ll be gone or become squad players while we transition further.

    Big clear out, big signings on the way.

    Darnik from last night

    The one thing I do know is we’ll spend much more than 90 million!

    …and we’ll be paying a much higher average price for our players (circa 35 -40 million as an average excluding freebies) and our wage bill will at least double.

    Quality is the key…replacing bang average with quality, and playing the same kind of football will see us fly up the table.

    Anyone bang average in the team playing that kind of football becomes a liability and a weakness…thats why we have to get in as much quality as quick as we can.

    In the not too distant future, all teams will be made up from 10 attacking midfielders and a sweeper keeper. They just stand in different positions at kick off, but that’s what they have at Man City!

    We’re in an arms race to the top, time to go nuclear! 😮

    Your negative posts were mostly wrong, hope your positive ones are always correct. Newcastle might spend £100-150mil depends on players available and players sales. I think Newcastle have the pulling power equal of those big clubs outside CL.

    Sorry, we can’t say we are the richest club in the world andcwe will spend fortunes in the same breath as spend will depend on player sales. Unless of course you mean to free up squad places rather than generate cash.

    Man City are proving FFP doesn’t exist, they do not generate their wage bill from shirt sales and gate receipts. What is good for them is surely good for us.

    Last game tonight in FPL GW36

    Already some big scores, our China ex-pat ZG leads the Div2 race with 122, while Uncertain has an impressive 135 in Div1.

    I’ll post the results and tables after the system updates after tonight’s game.

    There’s also some interest in the Dr Ed Cup, with two posters still involved at the QF stage.

    We have the richest and most ambitious owners on the planet.

    There is not a better group of owners around the globe that come close to how good Staveley, Ghodoussi, J.Reuben and the main man Yasir Al-Rumayyan are.

    Dream as big as you like don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

    They will propel us into greatness and in the future we will become the No1 in the country.

    They will blow all our minds with who comes in this summer.

    The future is bright, the sky is our limit and the world is our oyster. So sit back, strap yourself in and enjoy what will be the greatest ride of our lives

    Onwards and upwards

    Both ways, I feel they still have a budget to follow. I’m guessing well-run company like the PIF surely have one. I’m leaning to £100mil + Sales. I don’t think they will spend £150mil if they can only remove current players through terminating their contract. Just based on last winter window and media noises out there.

    I’m liking the sound of that mate and I hope to god your right, I read your comments on ffp and agree with you that if there’s a way round it our owners can find it, wait and see what happens to Everton because it will determine what the other teams in the league do in they get away with it

    When fans are hearing we will spend 60M they don’t understand what it actually means. There is a bigger picture here and it’s down to how payments are spread out which will gives us more leg room.

    When Eddie Howe was told no team had ever stayed up after failing to win any of their first 14 games.

    “Why not be the first. That’s always been my mindset. Why not change history?”

    Great words from Eddie The Record Breaker Howe

    FPL update before tonight’s game.

    In Div1, Ashingtoon is taking a step nearer the title as Jail’s players sip cocktails by the pool.

    It’s widely reported that Martoon has lost the dressing room, with his team currently losing to the absent beermonkey!!! 😳

    At the top of Div2, NY Mag pushes relentlessly towards the title, but is unlikely to be crowned this week, as nearest challenger banana looks odds on for a win also.

    Plenty to play for in mid-table for both divisions, as promotion / relegation is a 10 up, 10 down scenario.

    Good luck all.

    Anyone listen to Loaded the other night,

    Surely it can’t be difficult to get Messi on a year or two contract, let’s face it he’s won everything and is already an ambassador for Saudi Tourism. https://www.arabnews.com/node/2079671/sport

    Tie him in with a sponsorship deal with ST and let’s see where we go.

    Crazy idea? I don’t think so, think of the merchandising opportunities world-wide?

    The Ledge,
    We’ve all said it, we can’t let sentiment get in the way, I think we all have really appreciated having Targett and will be a bit gutted not to sign him if we get this lad but as I said about sentiment. I’m sure his £60K a week somewhere will soften his blow.

    Eddie Howe, his coaches, the team and our friends in the hot seat…

    A massive thank you for saving our club!

    Unprecedented on every level, from the doldrums of the last 130 years, blasted into a new uncharted future reality.

    No one should underestimate what has occured here.
    From 1 win in 20, run down by all and sundry, the media, up.
    From laughing stock to unlimited potential.

    Last night was the start of our next 130 years.

    On a personal note: it landed sweetly on me and Jackie’s birthday.

    Even tho’ it pissed down, the sun shone on NUFC!

    Next chapter, here we go!

    Howay the Lads and Lasses!

    Didn’t want Eddie Howe, very underwhelmed, all that money and we pick the ex Bournemouth manager who got them relegated………
    What happened to the Emery deal, why’s he turned us down……something suss here, something’s not right!

    Accepted relegation, players aren’t good enough, we haven’t won a game in 14, so much for cashed up owners, maybe all that glitters isn’t gold….

    I WAS WRONG !!!!!!!
    Eddie Howe, has somehow worked wonders and rescued us from dead set, nailed on, gone for all money relegation!

    Tyran21…all in your opinion of course! 😀


    I take it you mean about Wood and ASM and Burn and Lascelles.

    I think you’ll find Ive been bang on the money with all four…maybe to a lesser degree with Burn who started well and then went bang average.

    I was sceptical about Sir Eddie but soon changed my tune when the results started coming.

    All in all fairly balanced I would suggest.

    But just in my opinion of course 😀
