TalkSport have used a ‘super computer’ to predict the final league standings at the end of the season – and they’ve placed Newcastle in a worryingly low position.
According to the super computer, which generates expected results from now until the end of the season, we will finish in 17th place – having us down to narrowly escape relegation ahead of Cardiff, Fulham and Huddersfield.
Here’s the table in full:
- Manchester City
- Man Utd
- West Ham
- Crystal Palace
I’m sure many fans would take this position at the end of the season simply because we would avoid relegation – something that really did look on the cards just a few weeks ago.
Something tells me that Cardiff will have an upturn in results , particularly sparked by the tragic events regarding Emiliano Sala.
I think Southampton ,Burnley and Palace all have enough to survive so I don’t think the prediction that sees them placed just above ourselves will be too far wrong.
As we all know, football is very unpredictable , and no doubt there will be some weird and wonderful results to come yet.
Hopefully TalkSPORT have underestimated us – especially when the arrival of Almiron could yet give us a huge boost up top.
