The big news is that there is only change from the Newcastle side that walloped Brighton 4-1 and that’s Sean Longstaff starting in place of the injured Joe Willock, out for the season with a hamstring injury.
It’s great to see Sean back.
We need only draw against Leicester City tonight at St. James’ Park to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since Sir Bobby Robson was the manager back in 2003.
And we are sure the lads will want to win the game, the last home game of the season, and then have a real celebration after the game.
But a caution – we cannot allow second bottom Leicester to spoil the party tonight after such a great season.
And here is the Leicester side.
A massive 86% think we can win this game tonight.

Well that was an extremely strange match, completely dominant but in the end…. who cares!
What an amazing season and I can’t wait to see our first game back in the top competition!

Great Eddie Howe. Manager of the season except Pep will do treble.
More teams will play like that
Upgrades needed at right wing centre mid and defence.
Almiron drove me to distraction always cutting in.

Fantastic !! What a team ! What a manager ! What a club !!
If that point for Leicester takes Everton down, then a draw was not in vain.
Negative Leicester though, not playing to their strengths

Sign of a really really good keeper, nothing to do the whole match then pulls off a crucial save right at the end.

I always figured that was what was going on, mate…
Made up you let it out now!

What a season. And really, what a save from Pope. Instead of a nervy trip to Chelsea, we’re celebrating.

TTT are you sure Everton fans are the worst? These comments the unwashed made are full of venom. Sad bunch of terrible losers. Hope they go down another league next year!

Well that was amazing, how we didn’t score I can’t explain. Leicester rode their luck and Pope pulled out a worldy when it mattered. Doesn’t matter, we got the point needed.
Champions League baby! 😀
Now to catch up.

Was just waiting for Eddie to dedicate our Champions League place to Ed for his magnificent blog! Enjoy!
May 22, 2023 at 10:33 PMComment #475
Looks like Eddie’s most expensive transfer list will be the one management will be working off of this summer!
Now that CL is guaranteed 100% we can all begin to relax and watch the NUFC brain trust bring in a few incredibly talented players! And we can all channel our inner Ketsbaia with our own crazy favorites! David Santon get in! 😉

Of course the real Mackems win on that front. Pretty sure I never suggested otherwise.
May 22, 2023 at 10:37 PMComment #477
Going to be an interesting summer, getting CL massive for revenue foundations given FFP. On that not FFP is an absolute joke tbh, all it does is ensures the biggest teams/biggest revenues at the time it had come in/enforced, become incredibly hard to catch – nothing fair or pro competition about it

Well that was a game…….
I’m not sure why….. but I feel disappointed that we didn’t win! But it’s certainly better than worrying at the other end of the division.
We’ll need a big slice of luck and hope that Man U drop points but at the same time if we’d been offered 4th at the start of this season I would have grabbed it with both hands.
Overall a fantastic achievement by Eddie Howe and all the team involved.
Well done to everyone involved and thanks for all the effort put in….. let’s go to Stamford Bridge and finish on a high note eh?
