Do we reckon they will smash the championship then?
Relegated clubs generally don't have a great track record of doing well the following season.
They've bought Ritchie, Gayle, Hanley and Gamez from what I can remember. They've sold Winjnaldum, Cisse, Townsend and will probably sell Sissoko.
Newcastle beat Swansea and Spurs under Benitez at the end of last season but failed to beat Norwich, Sunderland or Villa. Perhaps they might struggle against the sort of sides in that league?
