With only a handful of games left in the 2014/15 Premier League season, many Newcastle fans are deeply concerned about whether their club has what it takes to avoid the drop. Falling from relative mid-table safety to the middle of a relegation scrap is the nightmare scenario that has become so very real for Toon supporters.
It seems likely that Burnley and QPR are already doomed, which leaves one more relegation place, which could be occupied by a number of teams, including Newcastle United.
The True Geordie has posted a video on YouTube containing his analysis of the relegation battle that lies ahead and it is not good news for North East football fans in general.
According to the True Geordie, the battle is likely to be between Newcastle and Sunderland, which makes it even more tense and obviously even more heartbreaking for the fans of the club that does get relegated.
Although there are other teams that could easily take the final relegation place, the True Geordie suggests that the recent improvement in form displayed by Hull, Leicester and Aston Villa could be enough to save all three – leaving Newcastle and rivals Sunderland to battle it out for Premier League safety.
We all know that Newcastle have not fared well against Sunderland in recent battles on the pitch, but hopefully they can hold on to their slender lead in the league table.
