New European bonus for Newcastle United followers

Like a number of different Newcastle United followers, my ideas are clear now.

An enormous aid.

I had skilled a critical battle between head and coronary heart in latest instances.

Nevertheless, Premier League outcomes on this newest spherical of matches have sorted me out.

That is how the Premier League desk now appears on Tuesday.

I knew it was a large ask however even approaching this weekend, I assumed it was potential.

I used to be considering each probability Tottenham would lose at Villa, which then meant if Newcastle gained at Chelsea, the hole would near seven factors between NUFC in seventh and Spurs in fifth. Then after all the 2 golf equipment nonetheless need to play one another at St James’ Park AND Newcastle don’t have any of the highest 4 nonetheless to play.

To chop a protracted story quick, I used to be nonetheless considering catching fifth place Tottenham was a risk and you understand what, if these two outcomes had gone the opposite means and the hole solely seven factors. I might have checked out our subsequent two matches, each at dwelling – to West Ham and Everton solely three days aside, and thought six factors from that pair of video games and the Champions League battle is on!

Actuality although is Newcastle are actually 13 factors off fifth with ten video games left to play and I do know zero probability of catching Tottenham.

So… the silver lining is that I now not have to look at different English golf equipment in Europe and have this raging battle between coronary heart and head.

My coronary heart telling me there is no such thing as a means I can ever need the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, Man U and Man Metropolis to win any match, except they’re enjoying one another after which a case of who I hate extra. While my head was telling me… look, don’t be ridiculous, we’d like them to win and enhance our mixed co-efficients, as a result of it will be simply the factor that Newcastle would surge up the Premier League and end fifth, just for English golf equipment to not do the enterprise in Europe and United find yourself ending fifth and ending up in Europa League as a substitute of Champions League.

Dilemma over.

I’ll now be completely loving it if the Premier League doesn’t get one of many two additional Champions League locations for subsequent season, primarily based on every nation’s groups’ performances in European competitions this season.

I can watch this Arsenal v Porto match tonight and be cheering on our Portuguese pals, hoping to see Arteta and the Arsenal followers crying as soon as once more on the ultimate whistle.

It’s actually what being a soccer fan is all about.

Keen sure different groups to lose.

It clearly isn’t a difficulty with the Mackems after all, they did their very own Brexit means again in 1973, solely months after the UK initially joined the European Union / EEC. Halley’s Comet has been sighted since that they had their two minutes in European competitors.

Nevertheless, I can sit up for when the likes of Liverpool and Man Metropolis play in Europe once more, similar to Arsenal tonight.

Not likely that bothered both means in regards to the likes of Brighton, Villa and West Ham within the different European competitions, however deliver it on for the others!

Premier League official website report – 15 December 2023:
