No chance Lascelles would stay if we went down. I expect he'll be wanting a move away at the end of the season whether we stay up or not. He seems an ambitious man and given that he's been with us a fair while, he surely must be thinking he's ready to move on.

He's a very dependable premier league CB now, and could certainly be playing regularly for a team with a modicum of ambition.

Rafa signed us a boatload of very good CBs. Ashley would probably consider it good business to flog Lascelles and promote Clark tbh, especially if we go down.

Somewhere around 2 or 3 now. 7 points is some gap already and given the fixtures before Xmas, could be even further clear. No idea how.

7 points clear from relegation zone with a much better goal difference. Whoa.

8 -> 4
Not especially a vote of confidence in Bruce, but there are points on the board with Lejeune and Schar out and the strikers not (yet) scoring. Ritchie too if we need to go simple with cross after cross. Scoring from set pieces too, which is always a good sign.

Six more wins out of twenty-six games and we probably stay up. This doesn't mean a season for the ages, just simple rinse and repeat survival.

Plus the only way we are going to sell the club is if relegation is unlikely so I can't want them to lose as some do

Don't know what to think tbh. You could argue we aren't going to keep picking up results with goals from defenders, but then when the goals from the back dry up, maybe the forwards will eventually start scoring. :lol:

Could literally end up anywhere between 8th & 18th. When you look at teams like Burnley, Brighton, Sheff Utd top 10, we’re no better or worse than them or the likes of Palace or Bournemouth.

The front three (two wide men in particular) aren’t scoring but they put the s***s up defences with their pace and trickery and they graft their bollocks off. If it clicks into place in front of goal for them then relegation mightn’t be an issue at all.

I still think there's a fair chance that we go down. Can see us going on horrendous runs when we're not fluking goals from defenders, still think we're utter s**** like.

On the same hand though, I don’t think it’s possible for ASM and Almiron to not score a few either.

Fairly sure we wont go down, provided Bruce doesn't change formation or tactics.

If the defenders stop scoring it could be 17th, if the 3 barn door amigos start scoring we could get as high as 8th.

f*** knows what will happen in January. We might sell Schar for 40m or we might sign a couple of decent players.

We really are an enigma.
Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

Nah, there’s too much s**** down the bottom of the league this season. We’d have to sink like a stone

Villa’s a big game for him since we have City afterwards. If he beats Villa he’ll be 7 clear of the bottom 4 let alone the bottom 3. The fixtures between City and Man Utd on Boxing Day aren’t the most taxing. He should be looking at being 10-12 clear at Christmas.

I barely expected a win this season, so we're obviously way ahead of that.

I'm properly annoyed that Ashley is going to win again.

8 wins would see us up. We could get 3-4 wins just from the next 8 games.

However this is Newcastle so nothing is promised.

I think it does matter either way. Keep winning means staying up and another season of Bruce aiming for 17th to keep Ashley happy. Going down might be the beginning of something glorious which results in us getting our club back.
