I feel fucking sick, just ran through the BBC predictor and it came out with us relegated. Us, Norwich and Wigan all on 39 points and us losing out on goal difference... I can't handle another drop in to the Championship, I feel numb.

Incidentally, I wonder how many of our players have relegation clauses in their contracts? How many would leave? How much of the wages we'd need to shift off the books and what we'd be left with...

If we can't beat QPR, away or home, when they have nothing more to play for this season, we deserve to go down tbh.

 

If we can't beat them, none of our players or manager/coaches gives a shit about Newcastle. I hope next weeks training sessions involves whipping (preferably with razor blades attached to the end), players being locked into cages in awkward positions, wild predators on the training ground etc. and of course huge collective wage fines if not everything is going the way it should.

Don't know if I want the mackems to beat Stoke on Monday. Stoke are up against Spurs and Southampton in their last two games, they aren't safe by any means.

 

If you use some logic you might find there is an easy answer to that question.

pArDeW oUt!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunderland and Wigan with two golden oppertunites to drop us right in the mire. Of course that brings its own pressure on those teams. No doubt Wigan can handle it, got to hope its too much for the mackems.

 

Astonishing its coming down to this.

This type of freak misfortune

 

Television replays suggested the ball had crept just over, albeit in real time this was almost impossible to spot. Matters were not helped by the linesman on that side falling over at the vital moment, leaving the decision to the referee, who simply could not see clearly enough to be sure.

 

combined with this

 

Looking for periods of this match like the most languidly unconcerned of relegation-menaced Premier League middleweights

 

and our dreadful inability to score goals makes me feel we are going down again.

 

What a shambles. Ashley you are a disaster.

 

But I do get an email EVERY SINGLE DAY giving me the opportunity to buy some NUFC tat at very attractive prices, which will cheer me through another stint in the league no-one gives a fuck about.

All the optimism from early February has evaporated.....we were all, pretty much to a man/woman, happy with the squad after the window. Not replacing Ba was mentioned, but many felt we were sufficiently strong enough in midfield to compensate for that, especially after Sissoko's performance v Chelsea. This was where we went wrong iyam, and obviously failing to replace any the 4/5 strikers who have left the club in the last year has also contributed to our downfall. Am going to Loftus Road next week...seems like Villa 09 all over again.

I am sickened by the fact that, as it stands now, it is totally OUT of our hands. Even if we win the rest of our games and the other teams in the relegation battle win theirs, we go down by goal differential.

 

Well done Pardew and management from the begining of the season till now for thinking we could go through the entire season (Carling Cup, FA Cup, Europa and League) with a poor thin squad. Well done, well done.

I know I'm a stuck record on this point but any kind of reliance - and since January its been a huge one - on Shola has cost the club massively.

It's not out of our hands is it?

 

Wigan and villa play each other and the mackems play Southampton, they can't all get maximum points

That's not really true though, since some of the teams in the relegation battle have to play each other. Sunderland v Stoke, Sunderland v Southampton, Southampton v Stoke, Wigan v Aston Villa.

 

EDIT: Or what Andrew said.
