Match of the Day commentator at St James' Park
"Siem De Jong's goal - having been out virtually all season with injury - was the only bright spot for Newcastle. Seven successive defeats for the Magpies who are in huge trouble. Swansea set a new club points record in the Premier League by reaching 50 for the season."
Alex Richardson in Sheffield: Is this really the same Newcastle team that beat the so-called invincible Chelsea side back in December?
Chris, Ex-NUFC fan in Towcester: Maybe we were a little hasty in getting rid of Joe Kinnear.
Siem De Jong finds himself on the ball but fires wide. And that is that. Seven straight defeats for Newcastle.
Swans keeper Lukasz Fabianski is busier now than he has been for the whole match. Marvin Emnes goes into the book for time-wasting.
Newcastle win a corner and everyone is up including Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul, who almost punches it into the net before Lukasz Fabianski claims. Er, you can't use your hands in that box Tim!
Vernon Anita delivers a deep cross but Swan keeper Lukasz Fabianski sprints from his goal-line to make a strong claim. Exactly what you need from your last defender when you're hanging on.
Four minutes of added time.
So what now Newcastle? Swansea do well to keep possession and keep their opponents out of their own half. The home fans are urging their team forward.
Wow, do we have a comeback on our hands? Out for most of the season but that doesn't stop Dutch striker Siem De Jong heading in Jack Colback's cross for his first of the season. Great timing.
Alas, the corner and a second one soon after are cleared by the Swansea defence. Swans skipper Ashley Williams has been a towering presence for his team today.
Former Wales striker on Final Score
"Newcastle are already on 35 points. You wonder whether the bottom three will reach 35 points. There are only five or six games to go - if there were more games I would worry about Newcastle. But they will just about be ok."
Five minutes left and the bustle has gone out of this game, not helped by the vast swathes of empty seats. Newcastle need some energy and win a corner.
Dave Candlish in Gateshead: The only thing that will save Newcastle from going down is that there might just be three teams worse than them in the Premier League.
Peter Sagar in Newcastle: Mike Ashley is systematically destroying a once great club. He should be deemed not fit to own a football club.
Swansea goalscorer Gylfi Sigurdsson is now taking a well-earned rest. Marvin Emnes takes his place in midfield. Plenty of room now, you suspect another goal might be in the offing.
Jonjo Shelvey is on the attack now. The Swansea midfielder smacks it straight at Tim Krul as he almost punches it away.
Ayoze Perez on the run this time for Newcastle. He drives towards the edge of the penalty area, turns Ashley Williams but his effort from 20 yards is wide of the left-hand post.
Good chance for Ayoze Perez, who has time to steady himself as the ball drops to him 14 yards out, but his shot does not have enough power to beat Lukasz Fabianski. That could be costly.
Oh dear this could get worse for Newcastle. Fabricio Coloccini slides to block Gylfi Sigurdsson's goal-bound shot and it is out for a corner but the Swansea attack comes to an end.
Double change for Newcastle as Siem de Jong comes on to replace Remy Cabella. Adam Armstrong is on for Emmanuel Riviere. De Jong has been out injured since February. Can he be a saviour?
Nelson Oliveira has had a hand in all three goals so far. A very tidy day's work for the Portuguese forward. Newcastle fans heading for the exit as the team stares a seventh consecutive defeat in the face.
Very nice goal and it's all down to the work of Jack Cork. He picks the ball up in midfield, threads his way towards the Newcastle penalty area, passes wide to Nelson Oliveira and receives the return pass to slot home.
That's time for Swansea's Jefferson Montero, who is replaced by Matt Grimes on the left.
The game is becoming a bit more stretched now. Jonjo Shelvey finds room to pick out Nathan Dyer on the right and the visitors are starting to find a passing rhythm.
Ryan Taylor now has the unenviable task of keeping Swansea winger Jefferson Montero in check. But the Ecuadorian looks like he is struggling with an injury too as Jack Colback shows some steel for Newcastle. They need it.
Peter Collins: Ever since they scored, I've been waiting for Newcastle to fall behind. No sympathy, they shouldn't have forced Pardew out.
Charlie Fee: How did Newcastle get to 35 points this season...? I struggle to remember such a poor side staying up
Leicester have just scored against Burnley to make it 1-0, meaning Newcastle are just five points above the relegation zone as it stands. They started the day seven points ahead.

Daryl Janmaat looks like he is struggling a bit. He's had a proper workout against Jefferson Montero. The Newcastle defender is replaced by midfielder Mehdi Abeid. Ryan Taylor goes into right-back.
More pressure as Newcastle win another corner after Ashley Williams heads clear. Ryan Taylor cannot find a target though. Ayoze Perez then tries his luck from a left-wing cross in open play but Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski gathers easily. No lack of effort from the hosts but lacking a bit of quality.
Nelson Oliveira is clean through on the Newcastle goal but the pass is just too long for him as Tim Krul races from his goal to clear. Jefferson Montero is starting to cause real problems fro Newcastle now. As if he hasn't already!
Frustration echoes around St James' Park as Jonas Gutierrez chops down Jonjo Shelvey. Newcastle have a corner with Ryan Taylor but Ashley Williams heads away.
That was Gylfi Sigurdsson's eighth goal of the season and Swansea are chasing a third consecutive win at St James' Park.
So much of that fast start by Newcastle. Looking a bit grim now for them. They are a side that is seriously short on confidence.
Poor clearance from Tim Krul, and when it is worked to Jefferson Montero on the left, his low cross is dummied by Nelson Oliveira allowing the onrushing Gylfi Sigurdsson to guide in from 10 yards. Nice goal.
Newcastle win an free-kick in Ryan Taylor territory about 30 yards out and to the left of the Swansea penalty area. But his shot narrowly misses the upright. Good effort.
Jefferson Montero versus Daryl Janmaat is one of the more intriguing battles so far. And they are at it again as Newcastle defender Janmaat forces his opponent back up the pitch.
Back under way, no changes to the two teams. Can Newcastle recover from that blow?
Milo Thompson: Carver is better suited to managing one of Ashley's sports retail stores than a football team #GoingDown
It all looked so good for Newcastle until that equaliser. Still, they came flying out for the second half against Tottenham last week. Can they do it again?
