Hardly a proper form table when we've played 6 and other teams have only played 4. It's usually last 6 games for everyone, unless it's been drafted up by Steve Bruce because he can spin anything.

Still 11 points from 6 games tbf.

Can't argue it's been some turnaround but the idea of a form table is comparison. And surely for a true comparison everyone has to have played the same amount of fixtures or it's not really a form table.

There were three games in a row (Villa, Wolves, Arsenal) where Fulham shipped late goals. I wouldn't say that's bad luck, its a trend. I just don't think they had the confidence to see out those games.

Fulham Will pip us on the final day. Maja will be the man to relegate us. The mackems have been promising us this for weeks.

You just know the mackems have been worshiping Ba'al, sacrificing their kids as an offering to intervene and relegate NUFC.

We're joint third if it's taken from the last 6 games played from every team.

We’ve been getting results but it’s similar to last season, individual players performing well/opposition gifting us goals rather than tactics or proper management.

Willock has been sensational and ASM/Miggy/Wilson will always cause problems.

If we had a fully fit team all season, we’d comfortably be midtable despite Bruce. The problem is, this team with a proper manager could be challenging for Europe.

Funny really. We’ve been told all season how shit the team is, when in reality it definitely isn’t.

We're in good form though. Anyone  suggesting otherwise is just as guilty of spinning the situation. 

Still wouldn't be a surprise to lose the remaining games though, would it? :lol:

Fair enough.

I'm amazed that there are still people in this thread who think there's any chance at all that we'll go down this season. It was over before yesterday never mind after another win.

This is NUFC, let’s just make it mathematically impossible first...

Nah,  I'm rarely optimistic about Newcastle but the chances of relegation are miniscule

Fulham has had some rotten luck though with those last second goals from Arsenal and Wolves. Really don't buy your narrative that we haven't been close. We had two wins in 20 games there for a while man, we were on a run that equalled Sheffield Uniteds shitness. 

I haven't said we weren't close. I'm saying that it was simply never gonna happen, despite how terrible we've been and how close we got. Even a record-breakingly bad run of results (which we curtailed when ASM returned) wouldn't have put us in the relegation zone.

But we easily could have been though. We were in the relegation zone for a brief time during the Villa - Fulham game. We were in deep, deep shit and only a few very late goals against Fulham and for us is what has seen us safe. 

 

Fwiw, I'd have Parker over Bruce any day of the week as a manager

Could've been relegated, do you mean? If so, I guess that's where we'll just have to agree to disagree. I think the fact we're 12 points clear as we speak pretty well proves that it was never on the cards, despite the flirtation.

That’s the weird thing about football, we tend to reassess our predictions too often based on form.

I thought we were going to go down at one point. But at the end of the day, if you get a point a game (which is really shit) you stay up.

When Bruce trots out his appalling ‘accumulation of points’ line, that’s what he means. He knows how low his objective is, and he knows that it doesn’t really matter if you lose a hell of a lot of games.

Sad but true.

Fulham have to win for us to still be in with the faintest chance of going down.

If they draw, then we are safe, but the 3 below us - could still be over took by Fulham.

From looking at who has to play who, it could all go down to the last day, looking at it, Burnley have the harder run in.

(this is from a speadsheet i've created so I work out how likely it is we can go down)

#It was looking bad to be honest until after Friday night game.
