Most Newcastle Fans Aiming For Top 6 Next Season

10 years ago

Yesterday we asked you for your hopes/expectations for next season?

The question was ‘What would be success for Newcastle United next season?’.

A massive two thirds (63%) said that top six would equal success for the club in the coming season, a further 30% felt top half would equal another successful season, maybe bearing in mind there will be the Europa League also to contend with.

At the extremes, 6% reckoned Top 4 would be needed for a successful year and at the other extreme 1% though success would be staying up….

I think that when you finish fifth and you look at the quality of the spine of our team you have to be aiming for top six again, especially if that quality can be added to rather than taken away.

Aiming top 6 isn’t the same as ‘expecting’ it and I certainly would be gutted if we finish below top 7 as in reality that would mean having to finish above the likes of Everton, Villa, mackems, Stoke etc.

Our magazine runs a readers poll at the end of each season and we are giving you the chance to vote on a number of questions that will help to give the definitive guide to how Newcastle United have fared over the last twelve months and hopes/expectations for next season.

Your voice will be added to the thousands who take part via the magazine and the results will be published in the Summer Special which is out on Saturday 2nd June.

Copies can be ordered in advance by visiting our online shop here, or to subscribe for ten issues of the best selling Newcastle United magazine which is published every month (apart from July) of the year click here.
