Yesterday, we asked you how many points you think Newcastle United can accumulate in these final three matches of the season.
Before we start worrying about what Norwich and Sunderland might or might not do, it is obvious that Newcastle need to get their own points on the board first.
So – Crystal Palace at home, Aston Villa away and Tottenham home, what did you think?
Palace and Villa are the two clubs with the very worst form since Christmas, whilst Tottenham’s draw against West Brom means that their title hopes could end this weekend – potentially leaving them nothing to play for when they visit St James Park, plus they will now be missing Dele Alli through suspension.
If your glass is empty and smashed, you will see a Tottenham who have the best form in the Premier League since Christmas and could still have title hopes on the final day, or alternatively need points to ensure a Champions League group stage place.
Whilst you could also see Palace and Villa as big banana skins waiting to happen and two clubs with something to prove.
So how many points did Newcastle fans think the players will get in the relegation run-in…?
9 points – 42%
7 points – 20%
6 points – 17%
5 points – 7%
4 points – 9%
3 points – 2%
2 points – 1%
1 point – 1%
0 points -1%
Interesting that four in five (79%) supporters think Newcastle will get a minimum of two wins, which presumably would be in the next two games against Palace and Villa.
If Rafa Benitez has given us anything, it is at the very least some hope and a growing confidence.
A quite massive 42% think that three straight wins are on the cards – adventurous stuff when Newcastle have only won seven of their first 35 matches!
Three in five (62%) think Newcastle will beat Palace and Villa, then either draw against or beat Spurs.
I think realistically we would all settle for winning these next two matches and still being in the running come the final day of the season and 79% of you believe that to be the case.
No excuses now for the players, they MUST beat Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.
