'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Welcome, Newcastle United!

The final day of the Premier League saw Newcastle United, Middlesbrough and West Brom all relegated to the Championship for next season.

The Baggies were already doomed going into 'Survival Sunday', but Newcastle and Middlesbrough both had chances to get out of trouble at the expense of Hull City and Sunderland.

But it was something they couldn't manage as all four clubs in trouble fell to defeat, seeing Alan Shearer's Newcastle and Middlesbrough both doomed for the drop.

It'll be the first time in a number of years that Wednesday will have come up against Boro and the Magpies, and no doubt Wednesdayites will be looking forward to making the trips to St James' Park and The Riverside Stadium respectively.

Scunthorpe United will also come up against Brian Laws and his men next term after the Iron secured promotion to the Championship with a 3-2 victory over Millwall in the League One Play-Off final.

there has to be a mass exodus of players there, doubt they can afford all the wages-i would say its a certainty now that owen will leave.

owens contract is up looking through thier squad there aren't that many who will stay. Those that they need to move on won't command big transfer fees so i can see some serious struggles ahead for nufc

Newcastle will implode over the summer, expect a mass exodus and much finger pointing as well as a chairman wondering what happened to the money. That being said, it would be naive not to expect them to be a force next season. West Brom will be strong opposition to but watch Middlesboro as they will have trouble attracting signings and look the most likely to do a Charlton (Leeds, Forest or ourselves...you see what I'm saying). Oh and BFL, yes you do need to hope you go up this season......but don't hold your breath.

I have to say, I agree with BFL. I think Newcastle will dominate the league next season. Yes, there'll be an exodus of players but whether we like it or not, they're a big club. They'll bring in some decent players. Newcastle for the title in my opinion, but that won't stop us pushing for the play-offs.

its good news for me, i live in newcastle, in fact i work right next to the ground, we regularly get sky sports news interviewing people outside the branch. the general concensus is that nufc are *****ed off, really *****ed off. i know quite alot that have taken the option to cancel their season tickets. i predict a 4th place finish for them. they will be everyones cup final.

Wonder if BFL went to the match........all those empty seats....shocking support. Looking forward to seeing Newcastle next season. Think what you like about the team but their fans, like Wednesdayites will be backing their team next season.
