It has been a strange season at St James’ Park – something that Toon fans must be used to by now – but a top half finish with little investment is still on the cards.

Yohan Cabaye sold to France, not replaced and nine defeats in 12 games has caused unrest among the Geordies though and many clearly want a new boss in charge next season.

Dressing room bust ups with key players, Hatem Ben Arfa being banished a real talking point, and then a team selection tonight that has not really done him any favours.
