Newcastle fans on Twitter look back over exciting Championship season

Newcastle fans are juggling with the idea of dropping back down into the Championship. The Magpies are just three points off of the relegation zone at the moment and with seven teams all in the mix for the drop, they’re not safe. However, Newcastle fan account NUFC360 has taken to Twitter with a bold claim about the Championship.

When Newcastle United were in the Championship, Rafa Benitez led them to the title in England’s second tier, battling against the odds to usurp Brighton on the final day, and it was mostly a campaign to remember as they won 29 times, amassed 94 points and finished their league campaign with an impressive goal difference of +45, helped massively by having a #9 with 23 goals.

At the moment, though, that looks a long way off of where they are now. Rafa Benitez’s side are currently low on confidence, funds and belief and if things don’t change soon they could find themselves back in the Championship, so the argument is whether or not that would be the worst thing in the world. The aim would obviously be to avoid relegation, but considering the thrill the fans got from winning the Championship, another drop may not be the worst thing in the world.

The Magpies loved their season in the Championship, and whilst they don’t want to go back, it could be for the best in the long run.
