Failing to beat Aston Villa last week backfired for Newcastle as Sunderland went on to beat Everton on Wednesday night. That ended the Premier League run in what has been truly deserved after an awful season! Even with that though it was still very disappointing to have it hit home on Wednesday that we will be leaving the top flight of English football (again).
It was back in 2009 when Newcastle last suffered relegation but the difference with that time to this time has to be the players who stayed and played in the Championship. That is going to be very different this time. Shocking that a couple of days after relegation was confirmed that Moussa Sissoko has been called up to the France squad for Euro 2016. A player who has been truly shocking nearly all season and some how undroppable gets to go and represent his country in the summer makes it all even worse.
