The nightmare scenario for Newcastle has been confirmed with Sunderland’s victory over Southampton.

On Thursday I wrote that two results today would put Newcastle on the brink of relegation and sure enough we had United’s shameful and predictable capitulation, plus Sunderland’s equally predictable jammy win thanks to two penalties and a sending off.
Before today the Premier League looked like this:
35 Newcastle -21
34 Hull -13
32 Aston Villa -22
31 Leicester -18
30 Sunderland -23
27 QPR -21
26 Burnley -26
and now the League Table looks like this –
35 Aston Villa -21
35 Newcastle -24
34 Hull -13
34 Leicester -15
33 Sunderland -22
27 QPR -22
26 Burnley -27
Hull play home to Arsenal and I think it’s more than likely they will get at least a point after the spirit they showed to beat Liverpoll earlier this week, that would also lift them above Newcastle.
The key matches next weekend are:
Everton v Sunderland
Newcastle v West Brom
Aston Villa v West Ham
Hull v Burnley
Leicester v Southampton
I have no faith whatsoever that our spineless Head Coach and players will get another point this season and looking at those fixtures, if Sunderland win at Everton then Newcastle could well be down.
Failing that, the mackems play Leicester at home the following weekend and could well get the points then.
Newcastle are a team lacking everything now and the whole of them, from coaching staff through to the players should hand back their wages. Though there again, that would only mean that the biggest villain would pocket even more money!
Everywhere you look the other relegation contenders are fighting for their lives, our players couldn’t even lift their heads after each goal went in at the King Power stadium today.
