Sky Sports have polled fans of every club. asking where every Premier League team will finish in the 2018/19 season.

It is now over 48 hours since the poll was launched on Sunday, so a lot of votes cast and enough times and votes for the results so far to be pretty credible.

Some interesting outcomes and none more so than Newcastle United’s position in the fan predicted table…

The results as at 10pm on Tuesday are below, with first how Sky Sports launched the poll.

Sky Sports:

‘2018/19 Premier League table: Predict how the 20 teams will finish

After Fulham confirmed their place in next season’s Premier League, we want YOU to tell us where the 20 clubs will finish.

Will Manchester City defend their title?

Will Arsenal break back into the top four under Unai Emery?

And how will the promoted teams – Wolves, Cardiff and play-off winners Fulham – get on in the top flight?’

Man City

Liverpool

Man Utd

Spurs

Chelsea

Arsenal

Newcastle United

Everton

Burnley

Wolves

West Ham

Leicester

Watford

Southampton

Crystal Palace

Brighton

Fulham

Bournemouth

Cardiff

Huddersfield

No surprise to see Man City tipped to win it again and also, Wolves in 10th is no surprise, with a lot of money expected to be spent on strengthening their Championship winning side.

However, interesting to see Newcastle United in seventh, I’m guessing probably most Newcastle fans who voted haven’t put us that high!

No reason why we shouldn’t aspire to top seven, especially if Rafa was/is properly supported by Mike Ashley. Plus it also appears to show that neutrals think that this is where Newcastle should be aiming for after what Rafa Benitez did with a spirited but limited, in many ways, squad.

    Another long hard season awaits us. Without at least three players of real quality coming in. Striker, full back and another quality creative midfielder without selling either jonjo, Ritchie or lascelles. If this happens and it’s a massive IF then it’s another relegation fight might be avoided. I say another because that’s what it was until mid march this season and anybody who thinks our tenth place finish represents a comfortable season is kidding themselves. In all honesty we need six quality signings to really push on but we all know this will never happen.

    • Kieron Gilbey

      make that 4 as Dubravka has not signed yet ;D

      • Albert Stubbins

        Good point well made.

    • Wor Lass

      Don`t worry, Albert. The Great Monksatan has pronounced that we`re going to get 6 new signings. He didn`t specify whether or not that included the loanees.

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    one day i`ll go along the road to the Mags office & see if all these writers really do exist, it`s a 5 min walk.

    • GToon

      Do you expect to find them all in a line typing away? Like some kind of battery farming model? Some of them wearing Man U shirts? Lol.

      • Rich Lawson

        One bloke,knee deep in crumpled paper,with a half empty bottle of whisky on the desk,shouting at his loyal secretary who really runs the place and posts her own articles when he is passed out,p####d.

    • Rich Lawson

      That would be funny,then try and post an article at the top of the page on what you find and see if they will print it ?

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    I have said all long we will finish tenth and the usual suspects shoot me down in flames.

    • Wor Lass

      I have to say, that`s true – but it`s not why people “shot you down in flames”.

      • Monkseaton Magpies

        For next season I predict seventh based on the six signing I think we will get.

        • GToon

          If we got six signings we would be right up there. Problem is though we’ll probably have to make ten sales to get those six in and of those six three of them will be last minute and not quite what Rafa wanted and the other three will probably be loans. Wish I had your optimism.

        • Peter C

          Sorry to say this, and no disrespect. But what universe do you live on.

          With regard to the season that has just finished, we could’ve quite easily been relegated. Don’t get me wrong, we did well with the resources we had, and had a good season, but things could’ve been so very different,

          Benitez knows this, and anyone with any sense, knows the same.

          We didn’t really dominate many games we won. and could’ve lost some of the ones we did, Saying that, we lost a few we should’ve won, so you could say, it was 6 of 1, and half a dozen of another.

          But when you look at the squad, it’s paper thin, if we had had some more injuries at important times, we would’ve been in the mire. In Fact in the run up to Christmas, we were in the mire.

          We got a little bit fortunate, that we did have a great deal of long term injuries.

          And which is more important, there where a lot of poor and mediocre teams in the Premier League this season

          I believe next season the Prem will be a lot stronger than last, with the inclusion of Wolves and Fulham, they’ve got the financial muscle, I wish we had, and the inclination and ambition to compete, not just survive.

          And as far as getting 6 new signings, I’ll believe it when I see it. It would mean 12 players would’ve to leave, before we get 6 new ones.

          And what counts anyway, is quality, not quantity.

          • Monkseaton Magpies

            There is no doubt that we should have had three more points against Everton, two more away at Bournemouth one at home and a couple more at home to Bournemouth.
            The only game where we got a point where we were luck was Liverpool. We should have finished seventh with a bit more experience. We beat Man Utd, Arsenal and hammered Chelsea and have got a good team. In the Sky pool of supporters next season the fans poll has us seventh yet some on here have us relegated. Also Atsu, Murphy and Merino would not say the squad is paper thin.

          • Peter C

            You really do look through rose tinted glasses. There’s a difference between of should of had and what actually happened.

            At home to Crystal Palace, there’s an argument to say that they certainly deserved something out of the game, if not a win.

            You could say that Stoke away and Man United at home, could have resulted in two draws. There’s 7 points lost if fate had had a different outcome.

            At Newcastle’s level, the margin between success and failure is so small, it can mean the difference between maintaining our Premier League status and ending up in the Championship.

            Yes with a fair wind and a bit more luck, Newcastle could’ve finished in a higher position, they could’ve also been relegated, had things turned against them.

            On the run up to Christmas things were looking exceedingly bleak. Who could’ve see them putting a winning run together in the manner in which they did, in the second part of the season. Which saved our bacon, or Mike Ashley’s.

            And as far of the trio of players you mentioned. how many appearances and goals did they accumulate together.

            Why do you think Benitez wants some money to spend, he wants to strengthen the squad, because he knows that this time, we got away with having a threadbare number of players.

            His plan is to have 2 players competing for each position, which we certainly don’t have at this moment.

            1) to cover for injuries, and
            2) to cover for loss of form.

            We were fortunate this year, we might not be, next.

            I really do hope your prediction comes true, and we also get 6 quality signings, but this won’t come true, with the assumption of how this season went,wishful thinking and unlimted optimism.

            The club / team will only be successful, by Mike Ashley investing in the playing staff and the facilities, which Benitez is pushing for, but Ashley doesn’t seem to think is necessary.

            PS Who are the 6 signings you think that we need. and who do you think we’ll end up with. Bet there’ll be a huge difference.

      • Kneebotherm8

        We wouldn’t have finished tenth if he’d had his wish and Benitez had been sacked…………..he’s been crying out for that to happen all season….

        • Wor Lass

          Tht`s true!

  • Kneebotherm8

    The voting must be on the assumption of two things….
    1. Rafa stays
    2. He’s given transfer backing by the owner

    Therefore,top seven is a possibility under those circumstances…………………..in the real world it’s not gonna happen……………..is it?

  • Paul Patterson

    Can’t do predictions until after the transfer window shuts.

  • Wor Lass

    Am I missing a trick or is everyone having to log in every time they come on here?

    • Leicester Mag

      It seems so trucking pain in the Arsenal

    • Waxi

      OK for me.

  • Lostprofit DBC

    I hope Ashley hasn’t seen this or the padlock will be on his wallet.

    • Paul Patterson

      I don’t think anyone wants/expects him to use his own money, just what the club has accrued . .

  • Leicester Mag

    Like an earlier article about not needing to tinker too much optimism again blurs the line with wishful thinking. The likes of Everton and others will invest, will we? History gives an emphatic answer to that! Last year we had few critical injuries again history suggests we won’t be so lucky next time. Until we know the position regarding budgets, Rafa and actual signings how can any predictions be made? afterall Das Boat hasn’t surficed outside the Gateshead Hilton yet.

  • pedrodelgardo

    My crystal ball is a bit faulty, it doesn’t tell me who is coming in and in who is going out and it laughed at me when I asked it to tell me what position we will finish in. I think it said that we won’t be bottom and we won’t be top but I’m not certain.

  • Andy Mac

    Even if you knew the squads of each team you’d still be hard pressed to choose below 5th or 6th. If we’re not to fall backwards we’ll need at least a top eight finish considering Burnley ended 7th that’s not too unlikely ? However there’s always the caveat of Mr Blobby
