Where will Newcastle finish in 2012/13 season
« on: August 12, 2012, 09:09:26 am »
Can we make the top 4 this season, with no extra investment in players so far ???

Can we even maintain top 6 ??

Will Liverpool, Villa, Everton etc overtake us.

Was last season a flash in the pan and even Sunderland will overtake us next season ??

I'm gonna be pessimistic (in part) and hope that I get proven wrong:

League : 8th (Man C, Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, L'pool, Spurs, Villa above us)
Capital One Cup: last 16
FA Cup: Semi final
UEFA Cup: Beaten finalist

Yo ho after last season can we progress even higher like to think that we can come close. The Slam is going for the dizzy dizzy heights of fourth spot. Now i do not think there is going to be much between the manu arsenal manc chelsea, with the toon hovering there or there abouts, think Liverpool are going to have another iffy season. So we need a big effort to break intothe top four, it can be done. I Believe!!!!!

I don't believe :(. I think that it was first season up over-performing syndrome & we'll be out of Europe & back to mid-table excitement before you know it.

Anywhere between 7th-14th, but I'll try to remember Cisse/Ba's goals & go for 8th


I've got the last season highlights to watch finally, so I may be back with a more optimistic outlook once I've had a chance to view it :D

Who will definitely finish higher than us:
Chelsea, Man United, Man City

Then you have Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham desperate to get to top 4.

Then Everton and Newcastle who quite rightly won't invest silly money to get there.

Dark horses with good managers Aston Villa, Sunderland, Stoke.

Worrying thing for me is the distraction of the Europa league, just look what happened to Stoke last season. The Europa league is only useful if you get to the semi finals, otherwise you are playing loads of matches against mediocre clubs picking up injuries and making no money.

So I'm going for 9th this season !!!!
