Tim Sherwood says that Newcastle are already safe from relegation, despite losing 5-1 at Chelsea and sitting in the bottom three.
Sherwood was a guest on Match of the Day 2, imparting his football wisdom.
The former Aston Villa manager admitted that Steve McClaren’s side were poor, but believes that the club’s home form will keep them up.
“Jonjo Shelvey wasn’t great against Chelsea, but I think he’ll be an excellent signing,” Sherwood said.
“I think with their home form, with the crowd behind them and with the money they spent in January, they’re safe.”
Newcastle have won six home league games in the last year, so it’s not exactly a done deal. As for the money spent in January, non of it was on defenders. Which is what Newcastle needed.
Sherwood has condemned Newcastle to relegation. The man that said in May Villa wouldn't be fighting relegation again, says #nufc are safe!
