For the sake of the supporters, Newcastle must rise up and survive

The ESPN FC panel dicuss the English Premier League relegation battle, where Shaka Hislop believes Newcastle United don't look like beating any team right now.

This is it for Newcastle United. Sunday's game at home to West Ham United is D-Day. Sunderland's hard earned 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Wednesday assured Dick Advocaat's side safety, meaning that the dreaded and incredibly costly drop will happen to either Hull City (1/7 relegation favourites with the bookmakers) or Newcastle (4/1).

For Hull to stand any chance of staying up, they must beat Manchester United -- something they haven't managed since November 1974. Meanwhile, Newcastle's destiny is in...

Newcastle United launch new kit with old Wonga logo

There's not an awful lot to laugh about at Newcastle United at the moment, with results and form in the doldrums and relegation from the Premier League still a possibility going into the final game of the season.

As a ray of light amid the darkness, Newcastle...

The Relegation Scrap: Newcastle United and Hull are left to fight it out

The ESPN FC panel dicuss the English Premier League relegation battle, where Shaka Hislop believes Newcastle United don't look like beating any team right now.

It's now a two-horse race to avoid the final relegation place in the Premier League as we approach the final weekend.

Burnley and Queens Park Rangers have already been relegated, while results on Saturday ensured that both Aston Villa and Leicester City will be playing top-flight football next season.

Then the boos rang out at the Emirates on Wednesday, but it wasn't from the away end as Sunderland produced heroics against one of the Premier League's big boys in the run-in for a second successive...

Newcastle United might benefit from relegation in order to begin rebuilding

Newcastle United head coach John Carver discussed English Premier League survival and Sunday's last-day visit of West Ham United.

If Newcastle United stay in the Premier League this Sunday, it will almost certainly be down to the failings of others. So devoid of confidence are the players that it's hard to see them beating anyone at the moment, even a West Ham team who have been treading water since Christmas and have nothing much to play for.

Hammers manager Sam Allardyce, his own future in doubt, will have no sympathy for a club that once sacked him after half a season. That may well leave Newcastle praying that Manchester...

The Relegation Scrap: Hull still alive going into the final day

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth explains the relegation battle as the Premier League heads into the final week.

Newcastle face relegation disaster following awful loss at QPR

Newcastle manager John Carver contends that his side's fans could give Newcastle the boost they need to avoid relegation.
QPR manager Chris Ramsey commends his side for responding to their previous loss and laments missing certain players for extended periods of time.
Steven Gerrard's party was ruined as Crystal Palace defeated Liverpool 3-1 in his final match at Anfield, while Sadio Mane notched a stunning hat-trick against Aston Villa.

Newcastle could have secured their Premier League status by beating an already relegated QPR, who hadn't won a single home game in 2015. Instead they once again strolled around the park without a care in the world and extended their own winless run to 10 games by losing 2-1.

This is a football team in big, big trouble.
