Relegation spells end of shameless team

Relegation spells end of shameless team

Newcastle United were relegated from the Premier League this evening after one of their worst displays in the entire season. None of the players seemed to care enough to get stuck in, or make a challenge, or close the opposition down, or hit a shot with any venom. As a result, Hull City deservedly remained in the league -- let's face it, they took the game to Manchester United, and should have at least got a draw for their effort.

The outcome of Newcastle United's relegation is simple:

A massive clear-out of players. This will, among other things be a welcome development for the Toon Army.

This team, even if they stayed up this season, would have certainly gone down next year. So, its good that it came early. The suspense would have killed everyone.

I hope Alan Shearer sticks with the team and brings Newcastle back with some fresh and commited faces.

Says it all Mehzeb Chowdhury. Your players let down the excellent fans today, they just didn't care. You'd never have guessed the game involved two teams playing for something to be honest. Not that impressed with my lot but to think your team were fighting to survive and put in that display beggars belief.

Relegation is the best thing that could happen to Newcastle. You will be promoted next season. Unlike a lot of middle ranking teams deluded into thinking that all they need is a couple of extra players, you can wipe the slate clean, get rid of all that expensive rubbish failing miserably and look to sign some effective players as well as bring through youngsters from a now established academy. You will also be an attractive venue for any of the Big Four looking to loan out some of their younger players to get experience, as undoubtedly you will play in front of the biggest crowds in the Championship. All relegation means is that you will be back for the 2010-11 season with a much better and balanced team and posing a bigger threat to than previous to the other clubs.

TeddyLyon, Leeds United were financed on debt with none of the backing of a multi-millionaire owner like Ashley. Totally different situations entirely.
