Bookies name the THREE sides they expect to be relegated – They don’t often get it wrong..

Rafa Benitez stated this week that he’s now hoping there’ll be ‘three sides worse than us’ this season, and the bookies clearly think there will be – with Huddersfield, Cardiff and Fulham now the favourites to go down ahead of NUFC.

Considering we are bottom of the league and without a win in any of our nine games so far after our worst start to a season since 1898, this is good to know – especially when the bookies rarely get it wrong.

According to odds from leading bookmakers Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Bet 365 and William Hill, Newcastle are 7/4 to be relegated – with Fulham (6/4), Cardiff (1/3) and Huddersfield (4/11) lying behind us as the three favourites.

Some bookies also have Burnley at the same odds as Newcastle (7/4), with Crystal Palace and Southampton the next two clubs



I back Huddersfield and Cardiff to go down but still feel Fulham may have too much in attack – however they are almost conceding an average of 3 goals a game after letting in 25 goals in 9 games (almost double the amount of goals we’ve let in!).

Interestingly, Rafa Benitez is the fourth favourite at 6/1 when it comes to the next manager to be given the boot – with Man Utd’s Jose Mourinho, Southampton’s Mark Hughes and Fulham’s Slavisa Jokanovic all ahead of him in the sack race with the bookies.

  2. I really hope I’m wrong but i cannot see us remaining in the Premier league without a substantial amount of cash being given to Rafa.
    And we all know that ,that ARSEHOLE ASHLEY isn’t going to be forthcoming with anything like enough to bail us out of the **** he has got us into.
    £40Million wouldn’t be enough to do even that , and with that ARSEHOLE we’ll be lucky to get a quarter of that .
