* It's amazing the crowds they get considering they have had to watch many years of shite.
 
* It's a shame Joe Kinnear has bad health, but he shouldn't have got the job in the first place.
 
* They are likely to lose 3-0 at home to Manchester United this evening.

I cannot believe this team are looking at relegation, years ago Newcastle were a top four club, back when Keegan was in charge and they had the likes of Ferdinand, Shearer, Ginola, Asprilla and so on.
I enjoyed watching them back then because they played such entertaining football, they played great attacking football, unfortunately they used to leak a few goals as well but were so potent going forward they would normally score more than they'd conceed.

Of course around ten years have since past and they have become mediocre and have plummeted from being a top four club, to a mid table club and now it seems to a Championship club.

Their are some clubs you just dont expect to get relegated from the Premiership and they were one of them.

I thought the same thing about Fulham, and look how close they got last year.
 
It happens to the best of them, ask Villa, Leeds, or Nottingham Forest. Give them a few years to get the team chemistry right, and they'll be fine. It's not as if they're lacking talent.

* Newcastle could only beat my Barnsley team 2-0 at home last season when we played mainly reserves against their first team lol.
 
* We played 4-5-1 and Dwayne Mattis was man of the match who barely played a game for us before being shipped to Walsall in division three.
 
* I love it when a big team goes down because they think they are too big to play in a lower league.

Fulham are a team i have a soft spot for because my late great grandad supported them.
I compare them to Blackburn in that their not really a big club as such but they've been lucky enough to have a rich owner who pumped alot of money in to them, the cash seems to have dried up a bit now but as you said its all about getting the chemistry right and Fulham seem to have done that, that being said though ive had them in my relegation favorites list the last two seasons.

It is true that you have alot of fallen giants in the game though, Leeds and Nottingham Forest being prime examples.

I'm sorry, but to consider Newcastle United a "giant" is a bit of a stretch, their a one club city with no trophy wins for 50 years, yeah they were in the Champions League for a few seasons, but so were Strum Graz, yet noone considerers them "giants" do they, it gives me incredible satisfaction to see them not far from relegation as maybe it will bring their deluded fans back down to earth.

And before anyone slags me for being a Spurs supporter, what I'll say is at least we've got a history, we're one of the most successful British teams when it comes to European trophy wins, we're in a competitive city with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham also in our city, I'd like to see how many fans Newcastle would have if they other teams that size in their city.

Difference is Spurs have always been a big club with a proud history, clubs like Newcastle and Blackburn as well are kind of a new era of big clubs, but this largely due to financial backing and shows what a massive influence money has on the game these days.

Spurs now have Harry Redknapp as manager who in my totally unbiased opinion (im a Pompey fan) is the best english manager in the game and i think once he has had the summer to build the side he wants they should do great things next season.

If Newcastle do go down i would expect the likes of Owen to be part of a summer exodus.
Owen is not the player he once was but he is still a premiership quality striker and im sure top clubs would come in for him.
