Theres A New Sheriff In Nottingham

8 02 2010

For all of you out there who could give two craps about the Championship League and the latest news on Newcastle United, I just wanted to give a little update:

Newcastle is still at the top of the table with a record of 17-8-3 and 59 points. We are still undefeated at home. Based on previous promoted clubs scores, Newcastle will need to win around 10 out of the next 18 matches for promotion back to the EPL.

WBA is currently in second place with 56 points. They have been on Newcaslte United’s heals all season long. WBA looks to be making a very strong case for promotion along side the Magpies.

Now up until this point I personally have had no problem with bouncing back and forth between 1st and 2nd with WBA. The distance from 2nd to the playoff positions have had a wonderful fluffy cushion. But now a club has emerged and I’m starting to get that same old nervous feeling every weekend. This club has now put the pressure on NUFC and WBA to play at top form for every time they step out onto the pitch. Say hello to Nottingham Forest. They have blasted their way as far as 2nd place and are only down 1 point to WBA and sit very comfortably in 3rd place {10 points between 3rd and 4th place}.

The last thing I want to see is our promotion desided on a playoff. Thanks to Nottingham the rest of the season is going to be very interesting. I’m sure we will see many positions shift from week to week. Lets get ready! The road to May should be fun!!!

OHHH Happy Day!!

What a great day Sep. 26 is! First off Newcastle United reclaimed the number one spot in the Championship League by destroying Ipswich Town 4 to nil. Kevin Nolan recorded his first career hat trick and the forth nail in the coffin was Ryan Taylor delivering by means of a free kick. With West Brom droping thier first loss to Crystal Palace [Newcastle beat Crystal Palace 2 to nil], Newcastle is now 2 points clear and sitting right where they belong.

Secondly I watched both my kids pick up wins in their own football matches. My son was able to punch a goal in to add to the 6 to 1 win for his team “The Black Knights” [he is 9]. My daughter was a defensive wall as she stopped a massive offensive attack to help her team “The Silver Bullets”[she is 11]  to their first win.


 Ohh what a Happy Day……
