So Newcastle United & Middlesborough both get relegated. It was a sad Sunday for the English game. Newcastle is steeped in tradition and memorable moments. Just a few years ago Allan Shearer and his boys were competing in the Champions League. Now they will face the lower rung teams (I’m not putting them down but United are in different league). And the sad part will be that they will be forced to sell off their best players due to the reduce in revenue.
Same goes for Middlesborough; although their club might not be as storied as Newcastles. I have seen some exciting Boro matches but the majority have been of a duller & slower paced nature. Nevertheless, I will miss them too. I hope the return back for both teams will be in a year’s time.
