Relegation is one of the biggest fear ever for most of all Newcastle United supporters this season. We have seen our club roller-coaster ride through the last decade, we’ve been once a Champions League side under Sir Bobby Robson and then suddenly things only getting worst and worst since the former chairman shocking decision to sack him.
Today, an old friend of mine who has been following the club together with me since 1993, write an interesting comment. Marda, now live in Japan, think that the relegation is maybe a good thing for Newcastle, while my Geordie mate said relegation is just that we’ll be playing 23 different teams next season.
And for more horrified news today, from the Guardian, Kevin Keegan is understood to have told Mike Ashley, Newcastle United’s owner, that he cannot offer him any assurances that the club will avoid relegation from the Premier League this season.
The result of KK statement, the Guardian also write about the rumour about Mike Ashley has cause to regret appointing Keegan ahead of Mark Hughes, the Blackburn manager. Well, the irony is everyone who was inside the St. James’s Park stadium last Saturday, have seen Newcastle’s best performance this season.
Meanwhile, in an interview with BBC Radio 5’s Sportsweek programme yesterday, United chairman Chris Mort insisted Mike Ashley still supporting KK. Mort said Kevin has got the (Newcastle) players playing very well and he is sure, the good results will follow.
This weekend we will travelling to Anfield, and I don’t think with United’s team confidence remains rock-bottom, we can have good result there. Another defeat is a possible result, with the slim chance we can force to get a draw. If we can have a draw from them then the next fixture against Birmingham (away) will be winable.
So, in the matter of life and death we don’t have any reason to not have winning games in our last three home fixtures against Fulham (March 22nd), Reading (April 5th) and macKems (April 19th). If we failed to get those possible 12 points then we can say goodbye to the Premier League.
