3 points for us? ;)

Bump. Quite tempted to sticky this, it's such a good idea.

7th place?? Not while we have Ashley and/or Pardew. Absolutely no chance.

We need to aim for 16th/17th.

Terrible owner (do NOT try the "he keeps us afloat crap", thats nowhere near true), poor manager, amnd a team that man-for-man is worse than the one that got relegated. So 7th?? muahahaha.

16th/17th?!?!  So we should aim to do worse than last season?

Words fail me.

On a serious note Sessigon (sp) looks like a decent player, but Gyan looks out of form right now, Colback (dirty judus b****** :)) had a much better game than at Liverpool where he was a liability. The resyt of their team is distinctly average and they just don't look like they have goals in them, which could be a big problem for them, they need to buy a decent striker before the window closes methinks.

TBH I had us down for 2 defeats from these two games, so to have gotten 4pts off them is a fantastic return.

The money they spent on Wickham could have got them Bendtner, give or take a million. Terrible waste of money.

I like Wickham but he's a luxury, as he isn't ready yet.
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

People laughing at my post. Have word with yourself man, the best possible way to get 60 points (in terms of games we are not going to get any points out of) is by winning 20 games. No way will we win 20 games, we will need to draw which then takes the amount of games we can afford to lose down again.

Any of you thinking we can achieve 60 points is f***ing deluded and retarded.

Newcastle    38    11    13    14    ---  46

Now let's take 3 defeats away and make them wins. 14  13  11  ---  55

Now, say we make a draw into a win as well. 15  12  11  ---  57

Perhaps not exactly 60 points, but certainly not beyond the realm of possibility should we actually just improve a tiny bit this season. Also we could be luckier and get more wins rather than draws but still lose the same amount. You catch my drift?

I was being serious about Wolves. I don't think they'll be pushing for 7th, but might as well include anyone with a + number at this point.

Arsenal was a joke.

No team outside the top six is definitely better than us. In fact, most of them are suffering from financial difficulties or have sold important players. Even Spurs look somewhat fragile, though I think they have too much sheer qua;ity not to finish in the top six places (same for Liverpool and Arsenal, imo.) I thought Everton, West Brom, Villa, and Stoke would finish above us (in that order), but if we have a proper end to the window, everything is possible.
