Understand that Michael but as a fan of Newcastle we expect to be in the EPL. We are still one of the richest clubs in England and Europe. We had a disaster of a year last season but well done to Chris Hughton and the players for turning it around. 1 loss in 19 speaks for itself. We play some really good football at the moment and we have the players not only to survive in the EPL next season but challenge for Europe. All we need to bring in is maybe a couple of lethal strikers. Maybe from the eastern european blockmarinermick said:No one has a god-given right to be in the Premier League.

This is so true. But there is so much pressure in the north east to perform after the deeds of Robson and Keegan. Hence why Ashley got Shearer in to save the club. Everyone thinks of Shearer as a god but deep down we knew the team would struggle to survive. Ashley is a owner who doesnt know what to do with the club which always makes for an interesting sideshow.FFC Mariner said:and being run worse than N Jets may have helped a bit too lol
Great result. Even better was West Brom losing at QPR. Really think we will win promotion now. 8 points clear with game in hand of Notts Forest. Playoffs could be interesting with both Welsh teams fighting it out.serious14 said:Newcastle 6, Barnsley 1.
fantastic game of footballbulldogmariner said:Newcastle defeated Forest today to go 5 points clear of West Brom in the race to the EPL with a game in hand. United only play two top 10 teams in the race to the playoffs and 4 teams in the bottom six. Promotion can be guaranteed this weekend with a win at Peterborugh. The style of football the toon are playing at the moment is not Arsenal like but very good to watch. Playing with two out and out wingers suits and overlapping fullbacks means lots of opportunities for the strikers and central midfielders.
Survival will be the key next season but wouldn't be surprised if the toon had a good run early.
