It’s been yet another torrid term on Tyneside, though this particular season has managed to even eclipse the shambolic effort churned out by the club last year.
Although current boss Rafa Benitez is a world away from the comedic efforts of John Carver in the hot seat this time last season, the Magpies have seemingly outdone themselves once more and are staring the prospect of relegation right between the eyes.
On paper, the players they can call upon really should be six points off safety, though that is the position they find themselves in with just seven games to go.
Clearly, games are not played on paper and that is exactly the reason the Toon find themselves on the brink.
One of the few first-team regulars to come out of this fiasco with his stock relatively intact is Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, whose role in the side does not look to have put European teams off making a summer move.
Recently, the Dutchman has been linked with a host of Serie A giants as they aim to make the most of the fire sale likely to happen in the North East should they fail to beat the drop.
However, unfortunately for the ever loyal Toon Army, he may not be the only one to depart so soon.
