I want Bewcastle and Nrighton promoted as they are strong teams. Brighton also because Chris Hughton is such a nice person. No worries Newcastle will be fighting relegation next season.

Agree, our dream ticket must be us going up as our dastardly horse punching rivals come down.

I'd be surprised if Newcastle don't kick on to mid table next season.  Good manager, decent squad, decent funding.  They'll be ok I think.

It'll be Boro, Hull and Sunderland coming down, mark my words. Three of the worst away trips too.

And look at the teams at the top of the third - we could be playing Fleetwood next season. And Millwall

The thought of playing Fleetwood and Millwall is so exciting that I have just renewed my season ticket  ;)

I'm looking forward to walking less than a mile to Bramall Lane.... Quite how many beers I'll have had on the way is another question....

Kevin Gage has a pub up there apparently. He still raves about his time here on facebook.

It's not far at all from Sheffield FC (oldest club in the world) who have a half-decent boozer on site themselves.

I see a fair bit of Fleetwood, I'd be chuffed if they managed to get promoted. Nice club punching miles above their weight.

They were ''schooled'' by Fulham, a team that plays more progressive football at the weekend. By all accounts, a lot of Newcastle's style this season has been quite direct and attritional. It will only get you so far in the Premier.

They've been doing what they need to do to get out of this division. Benitez has always played somewhat attritional football anyway, and it's generally been successful, relative to the clubs where he's managed.

Fulham will get into the play offs I think - and if they do, they will go up. I like Fulham a lot.

Did you watch the Huddersfield game John? As if you did you'd see the reason they were saying it was the worst they'd played, because they lumped the ball from the back as if there were four under pressure Baker's on. That was down to us pressing them.

We played well, it was a very tight game. On balance whe were the better side.

If you didn't see then I'm not sure how you can comment.

fair point there is only so much you can see on that periscope link
I've always said that the view of someone that actually went to a game is worth more than someone that didn't

however I feel our minds are made up on Bruce, you want to stick with him and I want him gone
I suppose at some time in the future one of us will get our wish

So john, given we've got 12 from 15 and only conceded 1 goal, have you seen any positives yet?

Will you consider changing your mind?
