A lot of Newcastle United fans seem to have given up on the rest of the season and are just waiting for relegation.

Newcastle are nine games into the season and find themselves in 18th place; they have only scored five goals and have suffered some poor results.

Steve Bruce was an unpopular appointment, and the lack of goals and points have not helped him in the popularity stakes.

The season feels very much like the 2015-16 season under Steve McClaren, where the Toon had a talented squad but lacked direction from the boss and were ultimately relegated.

The only difference this season is that Newcastle have some strong characters in the dressing room – while during that season, there was no one willing to stand up and be counted.

There is still a long way to go, and Bruce may turn it around, but at the moment, it is hard to see where the goals are coming from or what the plan is when we concede.

Not exactly two characteristics you associate with a successful team.

Certainly, these Toon fans think that we will be relegated this year.
