The Sky Sports predictor has given an interesting forecast for Newcastle United’s season.

The Sky Sports predictor using their model to work out a percentage chance of the outcome(s), using an algorithm to rank results, previous performances and the difficulty of upcoming fixtures – which has given this predicted end of campaign table below.

They have given the percentage chance of Newcastle ending up as: champions, top four, and relegated, as well as a predicted final league position and points total.

The Sky Sports predictor forecasting a decent points total and league position but not too far above the drop.

Their predictor says that:

sky sports

As you can see, it predicts a 15th place finish for Newcastle and a points total of 45.

However, they also forecast every team to get 40 points or more, something which surely hasn’t happened for a long time.

The percentage chance of top four is predictably only 1%, whilst ending up champions is less than 1%.

In terms of relegation it sees only a 26% chance of that happening and if Newcastle can keep up their current form for the next half dozen matches, these figures are sure to improve.

    I wouldn`t worry about relegation with the manager we have & i think 12th to 15th will be about right

      What happens if Rafa gets head hunted by a more ambitious club in January?

      I have a feeling the so called sale of the club is a ruse to avoid spending in the next window!

        What happens if the sky falls in?

        • Oooh bobbi fleckman

          What if MMM actually attends a match?

          • TheNutJob

            no chance of that whilst Fatso`s there, but i`d bet he`s been to hundreds more than you

          • Oooh bobbi fleckman

            Mmm gives me the impression he started going to the match when KK hot us promoted and gave up around 2004. He’s a glory seeker.

        • HarryHype59

          The Sky falling in is statistically highly unlikely! Rafa being head hunted by a more ambitious club is a real possibility!

    Looking forward to the game where we pick up 0.1 of a point.

    The worrying thing about it is that it includes the ‘Rafa Effect’, that is the elevation of a squad and playing the same formation and tactics regardless of opposition and venue…. at least everyone knows what their role in the team is….. ah now…. that’s Rafa’s secret.

  • Paul Busby

    I reckon we could be a bit higher if we can continue to dig in and grind results, perhaps if we bring in some better CAM options in January. Current squad, I’d say that’s about right for a minimum.

    Huddersfield 12th ???? Has Merson predicted this table in the middle of a heavy session ?

  • steve pearce

    What a load of pointless bolleaux! How can they “predict” what will happen in 8 month’s time? Who Flung Dung and Donald Trump could have destroyed the world by then. “The Angel Of Roker” could have appeared in the skies above Sunderland and magicked them into the Champions League, but more realistically that bunch of Anti-Newcastle [email protected] have got it all wrong and nobody even cares what they have to say.

    How and why does the Mag trawl the internet just to come up with this kind of comic book stuff…does anybody really think that somebody actually entered data into a computer and it came up with this end result…whaaaat!…pull the other one…

    Well predicting the top six clubs didn’t really need a computer did it?, but where did the data come from that determined that Huddersfield could finish so high when after winning their first 2 games against an absolutely pathetic (flat bottom) Palace and then just scrape past us (without Shelvey and Lejeune in the side)…they have struggled totally this month against West Ham losing 2-0, then drawn their ‘derby’ with Burnley 0-0 away, and at home to Southampton (who the computer predicts as narrowly avoiding relegation by only 0.2 of a point (???)…and then lose 0-4 at home to the only top half club they have faced, Spurs (with Sissoko in the side)…

    …You couldn’t make up an article like this, could you?…or believe it,and then copy it, could you…well this website could obviously!!!
