'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Roeder: 'We Are In Group Of Death'

Newcastle's poor Premiership campaign has been in stark contrast to their fabulous performances in Europe, and the Toon boss cannot explain why it has happened.

Glenn Roeder is convinced they were handed the 'Group Of Death' of all eight of the UEFA Cup groups.

Roeder: 'It is the toughest group. I do not care what anyone has written, it is the toughest group.

'We have done terrifically well to have won both games.

'Fenerbahce have got a European track record. They have not stopped getting good results since we played them, and that was a terrific 1-0 win.

'Palermo are top of Serie A. That did get the credit it deserved, but undoubtedly when I go through all the groups and look at every other team, this is the toughest group by far, and, so far, we have done terrifically.'
