NUFC – Champions League Is Still On

12 years ago

Back before the Blackburn match I looked at the possibility of Newcastle grabbing a Champions League spot.

As a rough guide I used last season’s number of points as a pointer and Arsenal finished in fourth with 68 points. So my question was whether it was possible for Newcastle to pick up 32 points from their final 16 matches?

The answer was yes!

I went through match and my predictions (surprise surprise!) came out at exactly 32 points.

The good news is that using my scientific system, Newcastle united are currently two points ahead of schedule as I predicted a draw at Blackburn, a win over Villa and defeat at Spurs.

So the rather fortunate defeat of Blackburn has given us a two point cushion, believe!

Blackburn (A) – DRAW, Aston Villa (H)  – WIN, Spurs (A) – DEFEAT, Wolves (H) – WIN

Mackems (H) – WIN, Arsenal (A) – DRAW, Norwich City (H) – WIN, WBA (A) – DRAW

Liverpool (H) – WIN, Swansea (A) – DRAW, Bolton (H) – WIN, Chelsea (A) – DEFEAT

Stoke City (H) – WIN, Wigan (A) – WIN, Man. City (H) – DRAW, Everton  (A) –  WIN
