Mehrdad Ghodoussi releases statement as NUFC make Premier League history – It’s official!

No team in Premier League history had EVER stayed up after failing to win any of their opening 14 games.

Last night, our top flight status was finally secured, as results elsewhere meant it is now mathematically impossible for Newcastle United to be relegated.

Leeds lost 3-0 at home to Chelsea – leaving them nine points behind ourselves with just two games remaining – while Everton only managed a 0-0 draw away to an already relegated Watford.

Moments after the full time whistle went in both games, Newcastle co-owner Mehrdad Ghodoussi released a brilliant statement on social media, paying tribute to the “incredible” Eddie Howe, his coaching staff, the players and the fans.

Here’s what he posted on Twitter after our Premier League status and history-making achievement was finally made official:

Back in December, we were bottom of the table, six points from safety (having played a game more than several sides around us) and stuck on just seven points after 14 games.

We were deemed dead and buried by some and written off by many, but we’ve done it.

A huge thank you to Eddie Howe for the incredible job he has done, with the players and the new owners also deserving a big pat on the back for their efforts over the past six months.

Onwards and upwards!

  1. Thank you Mehrdad & Amanda too, and all involved in where we are today from the door Ashley & Bruce left the club.

    This isn’t just we’ve survived coz there have been 3 teams worse than us – which at one stage looked our only hope. We reached the 40 point mark – we passed it & still aren’t done!!. I don’t think anyone saw that as an attainable target from where we were …. But better still …. We done it with style!!! The true Geordie way!!!.

    The Newcastle fans don’t forget. F@ck PL history!!. They’ve all written themselves into OUR history & won’t ever need to buy a pint in Newcastle again.

    Mehrdad is a Geordie, Mandy is a Geordie.

  2. Excellent that it has finally been confirmed.
    1 – only Toon fans would celebrate not winning a game in 14
    2 – Anybody else think that message sounds like the kind of press release you get after a manger has been let go?
