Title: Hypothetical football questions
Post by: Stifleaay on Tuesday 5 March 2019, 08:39:51 pm
I remember when the Mag was paper based and they used to ask similar questions, thought it would be interesting to ask similar on here. Basically it’s a list of hypothetical questions that you answer regarding NUFC and football in general, you can give your reasoning or rational as well if you want.

1: You are given a 1-0 this season, which game do you chose to win? (Has to be a league game):

2: You are given 1 club to be relegated from the Premier League, who do you chose?:

3: You are given one club to win the Champions League, who do you chose? (Club has to be in the Champions League or Champions League regular):

4: Would you rather win the Europa Leauge or the FA Cup?:

5: One club to be promoted from the Championship?:

6: Who would you prefer to win the SPL, Celtic or Rangers?:

7: You are asked for 1 manager to be sacked?:

8: A club other than the club you support to win their respective league?:

I realise that some of these are a bit s***, feel free to add better questions if you wish.

1: Liverpool away, because I can’t remember us winning there, ever.

2: Man Utd

3: Dortmund

4: FA Cup. I really want to say Europa League because it’s where our trophies dried up, we have came so close, and you get into the Champions League. However people will argue it’s not a real trophy.

5: Sheffield Wednesday, possibly the best support home or away I’ve came across.

6: Rangers

7: Dyche

8: Forge FC

 - club other than Newcastle you’d like to see win the FA Cup - Everton(Don't want any other team that have been in the PL shorter than us to win the trophy tbh - so would take Villa or Spurs in this category. Watford can get f***ed. So to Palace, Southampton, etc)

I have re-worded the question about a club winning the Champions League. Because we are nearly at the end of the competition it doesn’t leave for many clubs to choose from, so I have changed it to must be in the champions League or a regular in the Champions League group stages.

My order of preference:

Nigeria win World Cup
Newcastle win Champions League
Newcastle win Premier League
Newcastle win FA Cup
Newcastle win Europa League
Nigeria win African Cup of Nations and/or Olympics (Less interest in these, as they have happened three times in my lifetime, twice that I can remember)
Newcastle win League Cup (This competition doesn't seem to interest anyone until the semi-finals at the earliest)

1: You are given a 1-0 this season, which game do you chose to win? (Has to be a league game): Looking at the remaining fixtures, probably Brighton Away. Frankly, beating both Southampton and Brighton would be safety.

2: You are given 1 club to be relegated from the Premier League, who do you chose?: In a perfect world, Manchester United. In the real world, Burnley.

3: You are given one club to win the Champions League, who do you chose? (Club has to be in the Champions League or Champions League regular): I also support Olympique de Marseille, who are fairly regular in the CL, so them. For this season, any club other than Manchester United.

4: Would you rather win the Europa Leauge or the FA Cup?: FA Cup

5: One club to be promoted from the Championship?: Boro because of Mikel and something of a derby that is not Sunderland.

6: Who would you prefer to win the SPL, Celtic or Rangers?: This is irrelevant.

7: You are asked for 1 manager to be sacked?: Unai Emery, I dislike him.

8: A club other than the club you support to win their respective league?: For this season, Dortmund and/or Philadelphia Union.

A few people seem to answering the first question by only taking into account remaining fixtures. You are allowed to use any of this season’s fixtures, or if you would prefer any of next seasons fixtures, with the current top 3 in the championship taking the place of the current bottom 3 in the Premier League (or similar in other leagues if Newcastle is not your club).

I think you've got to separate the Premier League from anything else. Winning the league means a sustained period of fantastic football; the best Newcastle team in any of our lifetimes. Decent players from average-to-decent Newcastle sides have cult status; imagine what eleven top class players - who won us the league - would mean to us. Winning the league is on another level to anything else so it would have to be that.

I suppose the Champions League would probably come second but it's such an unloveable competition imo. But I suppose - in winning it - would reflect the above situation. It would mean we're the best in Europe. I bet that'd probably be canny.

I love the UEFA Cup/Europa League. It's a competition I've got some of my fondest/most painful memories from and I just think it's a great tournament packed-full of brilliant, famous, historic teams who represent a breath of fresh air from the usual suspects of the elite. I'd love us to get back into that competition. To win anything in Europe would be ecstasy.

Then FA Cup. Then League Cup. Then World Cup. Russia 2018 was absolutely brilliant but any England victory would still pale in sigifnicance to any major Newcastle win.
