St James Park will most likely be seeing Championship football next season as relegation seems very likely for the Magpies. This weekend they will be facing Swansea in a game that gives Newcastle possibly one last chance of digging themselves out of the hole they are in. That being said it won’t be easy so a good performance will be required by Magpies.
Swansea have managed to secure safety this season and after beating Chelsea last weekend, they will be feeling pretty confident. A few months ago I though the Swans might get relegated but they proved me wrong and this weekend I think I will back them. This side is not the most talented but they have heart and this is very important for any team. I think that this belief and hardworking attitude that the Swansea players have will pay of this weekend as they might just get a win away from home here.
On the other side of the coin, it looks like Newcastle don’t want this anymore. There is no signs of passion or hard work when I watch Newcastle play and this is a big problem for them. Rafa Benitez is the new coach now and although he has a lot of experience, I don’t think even he can get them out of this relegation zone this season. St James Park will not be seeing a lot of Premier League in the next few years so a win near the end of the season would be nice although I don’t think that will happen for th Magpies.
Overall I think that Swansea will win this game. We are getting an amazing price to bet on them and I shall take it by placing a bigger bet on it. This is a pretty safe as well as value induced bet so I like it.
