That Sinking Feeling

Three points off relegation, no win since December, and three of our next four games are away, starting at Liverpool.

This is not looking good. In fact, this is not looking good at all.

Let's assume we need 40 points to stay up. Even if we beat Fulham, scrape past Reading and tonk the mackems at home - please, please, please - that leaves us stuck on 37, and with a rotten goal difference, too. So where are the other three points going to come from? The first game of next season, probably. At home to Hull.

The only crumb of comfort at this point is that there are at least 4 worse teams in the league than Newcastle.
and Bolton have to play Man U, Arsenal and Chelsea yet.
