Premier League: Can Newcastle United remain in 6th position come the end of the 2011/12 season?

The northeastern club Newcastle United have been a formidable force in this year's Premier League season. The Magpies remain to be in 5th position, a total of 2 points ahead of 6th placed Arsenal.

Alan Pardew – Newcastle's current manager – must have some terrific scouts as he has managed to build what is undeniably a very strong team in the top tier of English football. Fans of football betting should remember this.

One signing in particular that has been incredible is the Senegalese international Demba Ba. Senegal's strong striker has made a total of 22 appearances scoring a total of 16 goals making him the 2nd top goal scorer so far this season.

Pardew claimed Ba on a free transfer from the recently relegated West Ham. Premier League sides Stoke City and Everton were keen on Ba but it was Newcastle that managed to acquire the talents of the Senegalese forward. People looking at the football predictions should bear this in mind.

The Toon's greatest victory came against the Premier League powerhouses Manchester United. They beat the Red Devils at a score of 3-0 with goals from: Demba Ba in the 32nd minute, Yohan Cabaye in the 46th and Man United's Phil Jones scoring an own goal in the 89th minute. It was certainly deserved and proved that Newcastle are no pushovers in the top flight.

The most disappointing loss that the Magpies gathered was against Fulham where they endured a 5-2 away loss. Pardew could not have been happy with his men as the strong Fulham side demolished them.

So, to answer the question in the title: "Can Newcastle United remain in 6th position come the end of the 2011/12 season?" The answer to this question would have to be no. All throughout the season the Magpies have been on the rise. But it's inevitable that at some point they are bound to drop points. The best Pardew and his men can hope for in my eyes is to finish in 7th position come the end of the 2011/12 Premier League season.
