Toon Striker Says He Remembers 2009 All Too Well!
Shola Ameobi believes Newcastle have nearly retained their top-flight status. But still warns that we cannot afford to fall into the trap like 2009 when the players never feared relegation. Shola Ameobi: "It was a big game, there was pressure on us, but we've come through it well. "Relegation was mentioned, we don't kid ourselves. Two years ago we didn't take it as seriously, we thought we'd be fine, even when we slipped into it, even when we were losing games. "Nobody is safe, we're still not. Before the match, from 11th down, all the teams were in touching distance of the bottom three. It's great we've come away from this game and we're nearly there."
