    They are really, really poor. You look at that side - and probably only Ayew and Ashley Williams are pulling their weight. Their decision to ship out Dyer was extremely questionable, and they can't seem to buy a goal in truth. Eder was a total waste of money, and Gomis lacks self-belief and confidence - but a relegation scrap isn't the time to get it.

    Getting rid of Shelvey for £12m was good business - economically and financially - but selling one of your key players to a relegation rival? Hm. That could back-fire.
    Shelvey was pictured in the dressing room with a Budweiser after their defeat to Oxford. No wonder they got rid of him

    And he met a fan in the car park to "have it out with him", reportedly. Crikey.

    4 PL defeats in a row for Watford if this stays the same. Were Newcastle to make it 5 this weekend then they'd be looking firmly over their shoulders.

    but I got 7/1 on them to be relegated pre-season.... (At least Villa have done as I asked of them...well barring a miracle), they gotta bring in the coin.

    Big win for Swansea tonight, but let's be fair, they've got a long way to go. Their run-in looks tough: Stoke (a), Chelsea (h), Newcastle (a), Leicester (a), Liverpool (h), West Ham (a), Man City (h).

    They still need to go to Arsenal, Liverpool, Man United and I don't think they've played Spurs at WHL either

    Doubt they'll go down though

    Yeah I don't think so either but they'll be getting twitchy for sure. Probably the only team outside the bottom 6 I would consider as potential candidates.

    Big game for them this weekend, then.

    Newcastle. If McClaren's side win, that gap becomes even smaller and Flores will be even twitchier.

    Well I think it's safe to say Norwich are down. 1 spot left then.

    Villa absolutely confirmed, so a pre-season bet come in there.

    Need Newcastle to take that third spot with Norwich for another decent return.

    With Villa, Charlton & Dag and Red going down in their respective leagues, if Blackpool go down too I'll get a tasty win.

    Villa are obviously down, but it's hard to see who will join them. Norwich is the most likely bet, and I actually think they'll finish 19th.

    Then it comes down to one of Sunderland, Newcastle and Swansea. My gut says the latter two will be OK, but Borini's last-minute equaliser may be a sign of the tide turning for Allardyce.

    It's going to be one from Newcastle and Sunderland isn't it. Bottom 4 well adrift now.

    Biggest NE derby of all time coming up in a couple of weeks.

    Huge three points for Swansea, you feel.

    With Newcastle losing, and Norwich continuing to plummet, you fancy their chances of staying up. They play Norwich at the weekend, and a win will just increase that gap and make things more bleak for Alex Neil.

    As it stands, Newcastle and Norwich will be going down. McClaren and Carver have probably done the two worst managerial jobs this decade, so it's difficult to say whether a replacement manager could very feasibly keep Newcastle up. That said, Big Sam simply doesn't get relegated.

    There is a good selection for potential managers out there such as Moyes, Rodgers and even the likes of Nigel Pearson, which makes it even more bizarre that McClaren hasn't been sacked. It does make the idiot Newcastle fans look even more silly when they thought they were too good for Pardew.

    How's Pardew doing right now? Oh right...

    You know **** all of the situation with Pardew if you think we weren't too good for him. He's a man who headbutt opposition players, directly blamed the fans or 'the science' for losses, a man who started an almost unheard of trend for Newcastle to start losing derbies, he couldn't win a cup game and didn't even try etc etc.

    Alan Pardew, along with Ashley, Charnley and Carr is partly the reason we're in this mess. He started this horrific, couldn't give a **** if we lose mentality. Newcastle fans quite rightly wanted him out, it's just a testimony to how badly managed our club is that firstly his assistant was given too much time at the helm then McLaren was given the job despite ****ing up with Derby.

    When Pardew walked out (for a big pay day no less) we were linked to Tuchel, and there's reports he wanted to come. Were linked to Benitez now despite the fact were essentially down. These are the kind of managers we can attract. Pardew isn't a good enough manager, McLaren clearly isn't a good enough manager,

    Norwich are down for sure - and I'm pretty sure Newcastle will join them. This Johnson case and the departure of board officials could upset the apple cart at Sunderland, though, admittedly.
