Forget everything else! Our time is now…

newcastle-fans1 I just thought I’d pen a quick article asking for calm from everyone ahead of our final two league fixtures of the season.

Please don’t confuse my plea for calm as an indication that I’m happy or for people not to panic. It’s more that I’m asking everyone to focus on what is most important and that is our quest for survival.

I keep hearing a lot of questions that have been brought about by our poor season. Understandably so and I realise that it’s always going to happen after a season like we’ve had. However I just think it’s time to knock the questions on the head, temporarily, until we know what is what and where we’ll be next season.

The reality is that none of the kinds of questions posed can be adjudged to have any real accuracy until we know if we’re going to survive or not. Everything is on hold at the moment and whilst I’m not saying anyone should be oblivious to the spectre of relegation, I do think our focus needs to shift from tearing things apart to expending every ounce of willingness we have towards our team.

There will be plenty of time for everyone to dissect things after the season has gone and we know how things stand. That’s part of the reason there aren’t many articles on here at the moment as I can’t bring myself to think about anything else right now. We shouldn’t be in the mess but we are and getting out of it is more important than finger pointing or laying blame.

This isn’t one of those “support your team” articles. Quite frankly I think we’ve been superb all season and have stayed with the team far longer than perhaps we would have done in the past. It’s more a reminder that it’s pointless looking too far ahead when it’s things in the very near future which will determine what happens next.

These next two weeks are vital and it starts tonight with Wigan v Swansea. In an ideal world Swansea will do us a favour and beat Wigan but unfortunately for us the Welsh side seem to already be on their summer holidays whilst Wigan look up for the scrap again.

Come on Swansea!

  1. I’d love our team to be coached like Swansea. theyre not the best players but they pass comfortably and find a yrd or two in their play..

  2. If we see Obertan, Shola and Jonas on at the same time against QPR we’ll know we’re in even deeper trouble but I wouldn’t put it past Pardew to try it in the second half. If Benny is still knackered it may happen.

  3. Pardew would probably come out after this game and say ‘I think ‘WE’ showed we have what it takes to stay up after this game’

  4. I am thinking that no matter what the result of this game I am going to have to take some time off from following this sport…really hard on the heart.

  5. This is really not good for my stress levels… My wife is telling me.. “It’s only a football game and Newcastle not even playing” she just doesn’t get it…

  6. Wow Swansea are a really neat footballing side. They play everything so simply and just pass and move.

  7. Laudrup made the right sub when he brought Dyer on. The extra pace put Wigan under more pressure as they were tiring and Caldwell has continued to make bad passes. 😆

  8. I worry about 10 man teams ,even more so after last night 🙄 Wigan will be keen to test the subby keeper.

  9. 9 mins groan ,my poor nerves ,it’s bad enough I jump out me skin every time Lew has a coughing fit let alone this. 🙄

  10. So a win on Sunday and we stay up in reality as I cannot see Wigan beating Arsenal. But can we beat QPR? Although by this logic a draw would do.

  13. While we are all looking round the bottom of the league and hoping that clubs self implode, or help us out, we are all forgetting how absolutely pish WE are.
    I like the look of A.Kone at Wigan mind, a tricky striker who is comfortable on the ball.

  14. mynd i mewn eich harddwch
    Fucked up language but they get the goals in. Epic match, my dad was laughing as it was like I was a Swansea supporter calling for every Wigan foul to be booked and celebrating Swansea goals as if Hatem had scored them :mrgreen:

  15. According to German media Rafa Benitez is being lined up for Schalke 04, with Ancelotti to Real Madrid.

  16. Just looked at the table/fixtures, could be that by this Sunday we’re 12th and in a week today our PL position would be secured. As long as we win against QPR and Wigan are beaten by Arsenal we stay up :mrgreen: , thank you Swansea 😀

  18. wow…it’s amazing the sudden sense of relief i have…but won’t be fully happy until there is at least a point at QPR.

  19. Not that I’m bitter about Haidaras tackle, but I hope Wigan lose in the cup and drop like a stone .At least we wouldn’t have that little get Mcmanaman threatening any more players livelyhoods.

  20. Man that Wigan defeat has set the toon QPR game up very nicely indeed.

    If we can’t get motivated for that game then wor lot should all just foxtrot oscar.

    Man I’m jumping now and there are still 5 days to kick off … 😆 😆

    HOWAY !!!

    Mcmannaman will probably be in the PL next season, he’s young with a lot of potential so Liverpool will probably sign him.

  23. Fans@280, don’t worry mate, I’m as ecstatic after tonights result as disappointed I was after the makkems draw yesterday 😉 😉

  24. Last year Wigan beat ARSENAL AND LIVERPOOL in the last few games to survive so them losing to Arsenal is not a for gone conclusion. They still got 6 points to play for ,if they win just one they are on 38 ,if we lose we stay on 38 so it will be goal difference.

  25. We need to still get the 3 points on sunday.
    I want no talk of being happy with a point.
    If Pardum plays for the draw as per usual, then we will get beat.
    Attack, Attack, Attack..

  26. unless we beat or draw V Arsenal 😆 bit risky though considering the 7 they put past us last time like. 😳

  27. Playing QPR sunday what ever the result win lose or draw ,we won’t know how it really effects us untill Wigan play Arsenal and if we lose ,god forbid ,it will be the incentive Wigan need.
