There’s plenty of Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern still in great spirits after their incredible late win over Brighton last night in the Championship.
You can understand why, too, as the Magpies ran out the victors eventually in a pulsating and engrossing watch.
It took the men from St. James’ above their promotion rivals in the table to leave them back on top of the pile with 73 points – a very significant number.
All our punters supporting promotion chasing clubs are eager to see their side at least secure play-off qualification – though Newcastle especially are expecting to go up automatically – with the former looking nearly nailed on now.
As Norwich City journalist David Freezer has pointed out on Twitter the average amount of points needed to finish at least 6th in the league is 73 – good news, then, for Newcastle fans.
Of course, many are expecting them to kick on after this great win and chase down the title but with plenty of big games to come and the inevitable twists of a Championship campaign – this stat should come as a nice reassurance.
Where will you finish, Newcastle fans? Let us know below!
