Safety first for me, then I'll start looking up....

First target to hit, after that everything will take care of itself. Essential we secure our stay and use it as a platform to keep building.

Hope we can keep this tally up for the next 6.

Me too Sara, can't put up with all the negative thoughts, haven't some of our fans noticed how well we are playing :duno:

Bielsa will have set his sights on Europe in his own mind because he is a winner & breeds success & I'm with him all the way :scar1

Apart from Klopp & Pep he is probably the best coach in the PL, can you imagine any of the other PL coaches taking a team from mid-table to 3rd in the premier league within two years playing the style of football we are watching week in week out under MB

It could be the magical 35 this season.
It’s 5 or 6 seasons since Newcastle went down with more than that.

We finished 4th last time we got promoted. Think we could do it again.
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

Anyone who thinks priority one is securing the points to avoid going down as quickly as possible...as a negative thought, really is not thinking strategically... Of course we all want the end game to be as high as possible... but there has to be a strategic plan to draw your tactical plan from, to achieve it...

Tankies with strategy??

I thought your strategy was 'might is right' and then roll over everything and everyone in the way.

As it happens, I agree with you..

it is positive to look towards getting the 40 points out of the way...

Then look upwards to the champions league places..

Yep, safety first. Just think how relaxed we’ll all be when we know we’re safe from going down.

Tbh I doubt 40 will even be needed, but important to hit that milestone asap. If we carry on as now, 24 games in should hit 40 points.
I promise to be positive only for 20/21 :)

Exactly. The most important thing from day one was to stay up and consolidate. Anything else would be a major bonus.

If we can secure safety in 24 games or less, that would be amazing...think what a message that sends to the big 6...
