Newcastle out of sorts

Newcastle and Aston Villa might need the ultimate wake-up call: relegation

Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren considers their 5-1 defeat against Crystal Palace a hurtful one for the fans.

Once upon a time, Aston Villa were the champions of Europe and Newcastle United could boast the most entertaining team in the Premier League. Today they occupy the bottom two places, and deservedly so based on a series of hopeless displays this season.

The days when Villa were beating Bayern Munich in the 1982 European Cup final and Newcastle were wowing audiences in the 1990s with champagne football (David Ginola, Faustino Asprilla, Les Ferdinand, Peter Beardsley) are but distant memories. Both...

A new low for Steve McClaren's Newcastle in loss at Crystal Palace

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner says the writing is on the wall for Steve McClaren after Newcastle's defeat at Crystal Palace.

There is now no escaping what is on the agenda for Newcastle United between now and the end of the season.

A campaign that started with talk of optimism, the top eight and even a crack at the domestic cups has gone south. With 14 games gone and some tough fixtures on the horizon, with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur next up, Newcastle are staring at the prospect of relegation.

This is not an overreaction.

Indeed, they were three points better off at this stage the last time they were relegated...

Newcastle's pride on the line in meeting with Crystal Palace

Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren declares his side's 3-0 defeat against Leicester City as their worst performance.

A training ground bust-up, another St James' Park inquest, another defeat in front of a huge crowd and a series of apologies from Newcastle United players.

Yes, it feels like it's just been another week in the life of a Toon fan as the aftermath of the 3-0 loss to Leicester City unravelled throughout what feels like a long, old week on Tyneside.

Although, it has to be said that it didn't feel like it was coming after some improved form for Steve McClaren's side with two wins and a draw from the...

The Premier League relegation battle is intensifying already

Swansea's Garry Monk, left, and Eddie How of Bournemouth, right, are both facing relegation battles.

With 13 matches having been played, over a third of the Premier League season has now gone and, as a hectic December approaches, the relegation battle is taking shape.

Aston Villa's encounter with Watford on Saturday looks like the first of a series of "six-pointers" that also includes Villa's trip to Newcastle on Dec. 19 for a meeting of two traditionally big clubs, who are currently in dire trouble.

If Chelsea, currently 15th, are to be removed from the picture on the grounds of the sheer unlikelihood...

Newcastle out of sorts in dismal defeat to Leicester City

Newcastle United manager Steve McClaren declares his side's 3-0 defeat against Leicester City as their worst performance.
Jamie Vardy equals Ruud van Nistelrooy's goal record in Leicester's 3-0 win over Newcastle.

Steve McClaren branded it the worst performance of the season since taking over at Newcastle United.

The Newcastle head coach was helpless to stop a seventh Premier League defeat of the season for the struggling Magpies, a 3-0 defeat to Leicester City.

Nobody can argue that there had been signs of improvement in the last four matches under McClaren. However, that all went flying out of the window as Newcastle failed to cope with a Leicester City side that put in a fine display on Tyneside.

Improved Newcastle must continue momentum against Leicester

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says David Moyes, who was recently sacked by Real Sociedad, may be a valuable addition to Newcastle

Newcastle United were beaten out of sight the last time they faced Leicester City, as the game was done and dusted with just 17 minutes on the clock when the two faced off last spring.

United were so poor that you could just tell which way it was going to go seconds after the kickoff as they lost the ball and it resulted in a first minute opener for Leicester. At that stage, Newcastle may as well have packed up and gone home as they failed to match the intensity of a Leicester side who staved...
