:( take it you're a Chelsea man? Yeah sad indeed to see club like the Magpies in down. Pity,they got the fan base and potential but never quite make it,do they? Helicopter Sunday went the wrong way for me. Still,it put the most piss poor season to an end and highlighted just how bad our clubs are. Here's hoping summat changes. .

A much needed dose of reality.

I'm a Newcastle fan, and this has been coming for a long time. The minute Keegan walked, the writing was on the wall. Watching players who couldn't give a toss (especially Owen), knowing all they had to do was get a draw, have no desire or urgency given the situation, was so upsetting. But we got what we deserved. We didn't deserve to stay up, and had we survived, the same would have happened next year.

I can think of only 2 players in the 1st team that I would like to keep. The current squad would do nothing in the Championship, but thats not an issue anyway as they are on "champagne" wages and the entire team will be dismantled.

What made it worse was watching the Millwall / Scunthorpe game before the NUFC one. Players who battled and fought for their team. Then watching a team who picked up their hefty pay-packets and fucked off home to their mansions at the final whistle.

I quite like Newcastle and I am a real admirer of Alan Shearer but frankly they deserved to go down yesterday because they were just awful in the most important match of their lives. I watched the game live thinking they would 'do or die' for the cause and after a bright opening ten minutes they just looked lacklustre and uninterested. Their second half show had all the intensity and passion of a pre-season friendly. That was not a performance deserving of sympathy and I felt really sorry for their loyal fans who deserve more.

To be honest though football needed a really big club to go down as a collective reality check. I heard yesterday that Newcaskle had 15 players on more than 50,000 a week - without a salary reduction if relegated clause which most teams have. 15 players on 100 times the average salary!!!!! That is obscene and disgusting - and especially when it is not performance-related (if it was some of them would be bankrupt).

Compare that to Stoke, Fulham, Wigan, Hull. It doesn't have to be that way...

Yes, typical Dundee United play great against the "old firm" all season, then the one day you want them to continue their positive attitude, Craig Levein decides to play with one up front & leave their best striker on the bench until it's too late!! If they had just played their normal game and didn't go out to play for a draw it might have been a more competitive day!! A real let down for the neutral and frustrating for Celtic. I was glad Aberdeen pipped United for the European slot, serves them right for playing negative and not having a go. :smt009
