Match Commentary

95' You look at the pitch and see Owen, Viduka, Duff, and Martins and wonder how on earth Newcastle ended up in this position. Utter mismanagement of the club is a huge factor I feel but ultimately the players haven't shown anywhere near enough. The future looks bleak for the Toon I'm afraid. On the bright side, this might at least bankrupt Mike Ashley. I hope the man is happy with this mess that he's made. What a clown.
95' Alan Shearer looks completely gutted as the tears flow in the stands. The story of today has been the story of the season - Newcastle just haven't been good enough. They went out with a whimper in the end, befitting a chaotic season in which decisions at the top have ultimately sealed their fate.
95' Emile Heskey wastes time in the corner as the clock runs down on Newcastle's Premier League stint. The full time whistle goes and Newcastle United have been relegated from the top flight.
