Yeah but again, fuck them, who cares, they're so utterly irrelevant these days. We're chugging away in fourth, so fuck them all.

If anything, it feels to me like the media have accepted we're going to qualify for the Champions League, it almost seems a given.

If we'd have played today they probably would have referenced us but as a lot of people keep pointing out in one way or another, who fucking cares?

You're right it's not important , it's just annoying though.

They put the table up at the end . No mention of us and a "Man Utd remain 11 points off fourth" .

That irritated me initially, but then I realised they were only mentioning where the clubs that played today were.

Personally I like being ignored. We have to earn being in the national consciousness through performing consistently. We’ve gone about our business. Even Unai thinks there are still 7 teams better than us for a CL spot. We will keep winning and getting on with our business.

Nah, if we lose they will put the game on first, but if we win, they will put the game on last.

Some of the comments on this thread are drifting in to chip on shoulder territory. I tend to think we get a reasonable crack on MOTD.

I look at it this way, when they started to take notice, we started to fall apart, then they ignore us again and we silently cement 4th place and maybe pounce for a higher spot if someone above slips up. Better to be forgotten and spring out of nowhere then be constantly referenced and have the pressure.

If anything, it feels to me like the media have accepted we're going to qualify for the Champions League, it almost seems a given.

Last season it seemed like there was about five months of mad, frothing excitment in the media at how Newcastle might finish in the top four. Then, around February when it moved from being possible to likely, to inevitable to mathematically certain it just stopped being interesting for them.

It was just a thing that had happened. Given the fourth / fifth thing looks a bit like it's going to make no difference and it looks like the current top five will probably end the season there, there's limited mileage in them talking about it.

Add to that, I know this all feels incredible to us because of where we've been. But look at it from a neutral perspective: we have a top six squad and a top four manager. It's not that much of a surprise that we'll finish fourth or fifth, is it?

The media love Ollie Watkins more than we do! Til he goes barren for seven games. We'll still love him then, like a brother. So we'll slag him off but not let anyone do the same, the pricks.

The main gripe yesterday is they put Spurs on before us . And yes it does matter. It says everything about how they feel about us without actually saying it.

That issue will be resolved next Sunday.

We'll be second. Top two will be on first, regardless of scorelines.

No issue with that . It's logical.
