Newcastle United. The story so far. Written and re-told to you with a heavy heart. 🙁
But first, two things:
1. Manchester United are already crowned the EPL champions. For what, the 13th time as EPL champs, and 20 times as England champions? Congrats to them. A great team, made stronger with Van Persie.
Oh, three questions: (1) When will ManUtd become Europe champions again? (2) Won’t Sir Alex ever quit? (3) Will Rooney remain with the team next season?
2. QPR the luckless team have been relegated. They will be playing their football in the second-tier league next season. They escaped going there last season by the skin of their teeth. They couldn’t do it this time. Just shows you can’t depend on luck every time.
Okay now, back to Newcastle, our main little story.
Last Sunday (April 28th 2013, in case people want to remember the sad date) Newcastle United were at home, entertaining Liverpool. Much hopes were had that Newcastle could win the match. After all, Liverpool, came without the biting skills of Suarez, their dangerous top scorer.
But hopes were eternal. Newcastle forgot that to win you must score more goals than you let in. In the end, Newcastle were soundly beaten by 6 goals. The scoreline on my phone screen showed: 6-0.
Right now Newcastle are very much in the Danger Zone. One more loss will surely kick them to the 2nd-tier npower Championship League.
We will see.
