Mixed emotions here, all along I’ve been willing them to go down, due to the poor running of the club. Now it’s happened I do really feel for the fans.

Quite an amazing lot the Newcastle fans, I’ve met a few of the at Hillsborough memorials showing their support, it’ll always stick with me that.

Hopefully they’ll see a change of ownership and come back up, maybe they’ll slip down into the abyss, only time will tell. For the moment though it’s time to say a sad goodbye to what was an established premier league team and most likely Rafa too, can’t see him hanging around in the championship.

Was that two newcastle fans that we met at the 25th hillsborough anniversary in the pub mate??? If so, for sure sick to see them go down and villa, two really big clubs with some great history behind them but it is what it is, they simply haven’t been good enough to stay up but i do hope they bounce straight back up.

Yeah mate, that’s em. I’m friends with one of them (Jack) on Facebook, he travels a lot and regularly sends me pics of him and JFT96 stickers etc. from all over the world. I’ll finally share them here soon. Yeah some famous games against the toon. Crazy to see such a big club go down but with the wrong people running the club it can happen.

It’s quite incredible how close to 40 points Newcastle and Norwich are. It’s indicative to how the teams higher up the league have underperformed or how competitive the league has been this year, whichever way you look at it. I feel bad for Rafa and if I had a choice, I’d probably pick them over Sunderland to stay up. I guess it may be because of how many ex utd players they’ve signed over the years.. Big Sam showed his prowess in keeping teams up and at the end of the day, when it comes to team positions over the course of 38 games, the table doesn’t lie.

Good point that, I hadn’t noticed how close they were to 40 points. A crazy old season.
