Southampton fans fear relegation after heavy defeat to Newcastle

Southampton fans appear certain their club is about to be relegated from the English Premier League after suffering another defeat on Saturday, this time losing heavily away to Newcastle at St James’ Park.

It was a match that Saints needed to win, or at least salvage a draw from, but Mauricio Pellegrino’s side looked as bad as they have all season against the Magpies, beaten easily by a three-goal margin.

Mauricio Pellegrino’s side have won just once in the Premier League since late November and fans have been calling for him to be sacked for months.

Out-of-form and just one point above the relegation zone with just eight games remaining though, supporters now seem resigned to their fate, believing it’s inevitable they are dropping down to the English Championship.

It’d be a remarkable fall from grace after finishing eighth last season.

Can Pellegrino save them in the final stages of the season? Would a new manager at least give them a fighting chance?
