No European Competition For Newcastle Next Season



With Manchester United playing well and beating Manchester City 2-1 at Wembley yesterday in the FA Cup Final it ended Newcastle’s last chance of a place in the Europa League Conference – so no European competition next season for Newcastle.

It’s like going back two years ago before Eddie Howe had his first full season at Newcastle and we made the Carabao Cup Final only to lose 2-0 to Manchester United.

It doesn’t look like the win yesterday will save Erik ten Hag’s career at the Red Devils, and he is still expected to be replaced.

It was hard luck on us but with respect, the Red Devils deserved their win yesterday and had an excellent game plan which seemed to work almost to perfection.

Newcastle’s season was brutal with all the extra games and injuries we picked up and we have to think this season has to be one of consolidation and we must learn from last season’s endeavors.

We played 51 games last season and with a win ratio of 45.1%.

The season before last, we played 46 total games with a win ratio of 52.2% – so we expect around the same number of games this season.

We will have less games this season but our season goals surely have to be to win a local Cup win and to again finish in the top four as we did the season before last.

Who Was Newcastle's Player Of The Season 2023-2024?

    I agree with ED, i think top 4 will be expected next season no excuses.
    We surely wont have the injuries next season that we have suffered this season and there is no European games to be worried about so it`s all focus on the PL i would think, i`ll be heading of to the bookies at the end of July, canny little wager going on the Toon

    Just typical that the one season english clubs flunk in Europe and a non top 4/6 club wins the cup is this season

    Mr Tough,
    Your ability to score own goals, dig your own grave and end up with that size 12 police boot in your oversized gob is nothing short of incredible. There are loads of examples where the second keeper plays the cups, Ortega at City, Keheller at Lpool.
    What a doofus.

    These DCL rumours just won’t go away.

    Imagine the meltdown by the warblers if he signed.

    If Eddie and Co think it’s worth it then I’m behind them. Just look what has happened to Gordon and the transformation from what he was to who he is today. Surely can’t be asking for a lot. 40M would be to much IMO

    Looking forward to the championship final Leeds v Southampton today, and if the Saints win they might just sign Ryan Fraser on a permanent basis, although if Leeds win and if the speculation is true about their interest in Sean Longstaff, that could possibly be another one to keep an eye on going forward.

    Mr Tough
    In football, particularly in leagues like the English Premier League (EPL), teams often rotate their squad and give playing time to their reserve or backup players, including the reserve goalkeeper, in cup competitions for several reasons:

    Resting the First-Choice Goalkeeper: The first-choice goalkeeper in a team often plays in the majority of league matches, and cup competitions provide an opportunity to rest the main goalkeeper and give the backup goalkeeper some playing time. This helps in managing the workload of the first-choice goalkeeper and reduces the risk of fatigue or injuries.
    Giving Game Time to the Reserve Goalkeeper: Cup games offer a chance for the reserve goalkeeper to gain valuable playing experience and maintain match fitness. It is essential for the backup goalkeeper to stay sharp and be ready to step in when needed, and cup matches provide a competitive environment for them to showcase their abilities.
    Building Squad Depth: Utilizing the reserve goalkeeper in cup competitions helps in building squad depth and ensuring that the team has capable backup options in case of injuries or suspensions to the first-choice goalkeeper. It also gives the manager an opportunity to assess the performance of the backup goalkeeper in competitive matches.
    Rotating the Squad: Cup competitions often involve playing multiple matches in a short period, and rotating the squad allows managers to keep players fresh and reduce the risk of injuries. This rotation strategy extends to the goalkeeper position, where the backup goalkeeper gets an opportunity to contribute to the team’s success.
    Maintaining Team Morale: Giving playing time to the reserve goalkeeper in cup games can boost team morale and motivation. It demonstrates that every player in the squad is valued and has a role to play in the team’s success, fostering a sense of unity and teamwork among the players.
    Overall, rotating the goalkeeper in cup competitions is a common practice in football to manage player workload, provide opportunities for squad players, and maintain squad depth and morale throughout the season.

    Ortega usually gets games when Ederson is injured and Keheller wants to leave Liverpool as he believes he is starved of games.

    Two players does in no way proves your case at all – you have only challenged my posts cos you like to create trouble.

    Where did I say your back up keeper has to be a top international, I didn’t and this isn’t about that. It’s about you scoring yet another spectacular own goal, shooting yourself in the foot then putting that foot in your uncontrollable oversized gob 😀

    Saratoga – indeed he is a tool. At least he has stopped saying Anthony Gordon is a centre forward but now it has morphed into saying he can play on the forward line, which i do not have a problem with.

    Plus coming on here pissed as a rat and obviously away in outer space/crazed with the weed does not lead to good posts.

    Case proved M’lud. Take him down.

    Mr Tough,
    I never said AG was a “centre forward” I said he’s a forward wgmho can play anywhere across the front three, you said only an idiot would think he could play through the middle, since then Howe has not only said he can play there, he’s played and scored through the middle. Who’s the idiot?

    Not been posting much recently, on a little holiday in Albania (Tirana to be exact).

    Managed to catch the game at a bar (there’s one every 10 meters here, it’s amazing!) and was amazed at how Many City in the first half looked the worst I’ve seen them all season. In a way, it was the perfect cherry on the top of what’s been a frustrating season. Group of death, individual errors late in games, injury after injury and then Man City playing at their worst when it mattered most to us.

    Onwards and upwards to next season!

    Also I highly recommend visiting Albania if anyone likes a cheap holiday! Bars and cafes everywhere and can get a pint and an espresso for the equivalent of about £3. It’s glorious out here 😀

    Wow so we now have it that EH wants to/will sign Gordon from Everton. Hahahahaha.

    No he bloody doesn’t. He would cause bother and in any event Everton will not want to sell him.

    So nothing to see here ——- move along please. Please do not speculate to the point of lunacy.

    Also DCL no thanks another idiot.

    I’ll have to remind some of you boys after the window closes that yeez were talkin a load of shite.

    Super friendly out here. Every interaction I’ve had with people has been the nicest. Seems like they’re a fan of the English too. They seem to like a chance to practice their own English, been stopped in the street multiple times just because a local wants to chat and test their English out!

    Gail – you were slagging off Bruno and Isak last week more or less suggesting they did not care and were in effect mercenaries.

    Disgraceful for a “supposed” supporter who lives nearer to Sunderland than the Toon.
