Misery and woe for Newcastle following abject season

With the Premier League season over, here's a look back at Newcastle's campaign as thoughts turn toward the summer and next season.

Your season in a sentence and final grade: F

Highlight

It seems like a long time ago, but beating the champions Manchester City 2-0 in their own backyard in the League Cup when Rolando Aarons and Moussa Sissoko netted at the Etihad.

It was a night when everything seemed to come together for Alan Pardew's side, but sadly, they didn't get the luck of the draw in the...

Premier League season in a sentence - how did your team do this term?

The ESPN FC crew discuss the Premier League team of the year.

As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.

1. Chelsea

Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.

2. Manchester City

Taken to the cleaners by Arsenal in the Community Shield, ill-prepared City did not heed that wake up call and suffered for most of the season.

3. Arsenal

Newcastle avert relegation disaster in dramatic style

Newcastle manager John Carver is jubilant after his side secured safety with a 2-0 victory over West Ham.

Disaster at St James' Park was averted in dramatic style for Newcastle United. In a season of gut-wrenching lows, the much-maligned Magpies managed to bow out on a high on a day when relegation would have been a story that would have rocked the world's football media.

At most clubs, the sight of empty seats would greet a team that had been so poor in the Premier League for months. But as West Ham turned up at Gallowgate to bring the curtain down on the season and potentially on this club's Premier...

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Jonas Gutierrez (85') Newcastle 2-0 West Ham United
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Moussa Sissoko (54') Newcastle United 1-0 West Ham United

NEWCASTLE, England -- How fitting it was that Jonas Gutierrez lashed home the crucial second goal that put beyond doubt the protection of Newcastle United's Premier League status. In a year without too many positives for the club, his astonishing fight against testicular cancer has been an inspiration. On a day when a hero was needed, he was, in retrospect, the obvious candidate.

The Argentine's strike sealed the win, but there was something else on display at St. James' Park: A glimpse of what life...

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...
