Newcastle United imploding into turmoil as they face relegation battle

Newcastle United haven't earned a point in the Premier League since Feb. 28.

Alan Pardew is not a man who generally needs an ego stroke. However, a glance at his record this season will provide one, and even not so much for the points he has gained at Newcastle and Crystal Palace, but for the ones those two clubs have won without him. Or, as the case may be, the points they haven't won.

Before Pardew's arrival, Crystal Palace earned 17 points from 20 games; since then, they have 25 from 15. Newcastle under Pardew gathered 26 points in 19 games, but after his departure they...

Leicester emerging from relegation scrap by dragging Newcastle into it

Leicester City Nigel Pearson says his team have a cushion from the relegation zone but with three games left anything can still happen.

LEICESTER, England -- No two teams can ever have fought a relegation battle in a more contrasting manner. Leicester City, written off by most observers at the beginning of April, laughed heartily in the face of the bookmakers and hurled themselves back into the fray, blood pumping and sabres raised. Newcastle United stood still and wept like a lost child in a supermarket. If the latter are to survive in disgrace while the former goes down swinging in the melee, then there is no justice in this...

Pathetic Newcastle Utd in relegation battle after another sorry show

Leicester pulled crisis club Newcastle deeper into relegation trouble with a convincing 3-0 Premier League win at the King Power Stadium.

Newcastle coach John Carver believes Mike Williamson meant to foul Jamie Vardy

Newcastle's 3-0 defeat to fellow strugglers Leicester City on Saturday was their eighth in a row -- the longest run of losses in the club's 123-year history and another shameful, unwanted record under the ownership of Mike Ashley.

Under eight years of his ownership, Newcastle have finished in the top half of the Premier League only twice, been relegated once and have never progressed beyond the fourth round of the FA Cup. His ownership has been a disaster.

Newcastle have their own cup finals to come in relegation scrap

Newcastle boss John Carver is desperate to end his side's losing streak, with the Magpies visiting Leicester next up.

Newcastle United return to their FA Cup graveyard this season at the King Power Stadium to participate in what can only be described as "cup final" encounter against Leicester City.

Newcastle fans dislike Premier League games being tagged as "cup finals" but while there is no silverware at stake in this one, the prize of staying in the Premier League is huge.

The Relegation Scrap: Premier League battle enters the final straight

The ESPN FC crew discuss the clubs they believe are the most likely to be relegated at the end of the season.

With four rounds of games remaining in the Premier League season, Dale Johnson assesses the teams battling to avoid the drop.

Position: 14th
Points: 35
Remaining fixtures: Leicester (a), West Brom (h), QPR (a), West Ham (h)

Newcastle are still very much the outsiders to go down at this stage, though a run of seven consecutive defeats -- their worst run of losses in the top flight for 38 years -- has left them on the verge of being dragged into trouble.

Newcastle United's relegation scrap is due to key players underperforming

Newcastle United manager John Carver says his side played good football considering their recent run and confidence.

A somewhat freak opener and a late Siem de Jong consolation goal did little to mask what was another dismal afternoon, as Newcastle fell to a 3-2 home defeat to Swansea. It was their seventh successive league loss, the worst such run in their Premier League history.

While the losing streak was been matched by Aston Villa earlier this season, most are tipping the Magpies to suffer what would be a record eighth defeat for the season against a resurgent Leicester side.

Ahead of the weekend's crucial...
