    Bad times in N/E football

    Things have certainly taken a turn for the worst regarding our football teams and after tonights result from Portsmouth, it is now odds on that there will be potentially 2 North East team going down to the Championship next season.

    It's looking like Boro and Newcastle at the min. Boro away at West Ham got draw at best written all over it....not good enough.

    Newcastle away at Villa, again draw at best....not good enough.

    Hull at home to Man Utd youth reserves....anyones guess lol

    Sunderland at home to Chelsea....Blood Bath!!!!

    Think it's safe to say no matter what Boro are gone, just can't see any light at the end of that tunnel. A draw for Newcastle with a Hull loss and they are safe but a draw for both and it's bye bye Newcastle. Sunderland I think whilst they do have to Tom Cruise of all the final games (mission impossible lol) should be OK but a win for both Newcastle and Hull and it's Boro and Sunderland down.

    Lots of possible permutations, 1 things for certain it's been a disaster of a season for the North East teams. I'm not putting any of my cash on who stays up put it that way.

    • "I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once again able to defend our North East home, to ride out the storm, and to outlive the menace of relegation, if necessary for years, if necessary alone.
      Middlesbrough,Newcastle & Sunderland, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength.
      Even though many old and famous teams have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Championship and all the odious apparatus of relegation, we shall not flag or fail.
      We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in Upton Park,
      we shall fight in Villa Park,
      we shall fight in the stadium of light
      we shall fight in the midfield,
      we shall fight in the penalty box,
      we shall fight from the kick-off to final whistle,
      we shall shout from the terraces;
      we shall never surrender, and even if, this area or a large part of it were relegated, then our teams, supported by our loyal fans, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, We shall once again return to the premiership"
