This Gives Magpies Chance To Get Two Wins In A Row At Spurs

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014 · 5 Comments

Newcastle are by no stretch of the imagination out of the woods yet – although it was great to get our first win of the season on Saturday against Leicester City – and it certainly was a great feeling – one Newcastle fans hadn’t had since early May – our last league win –  when we hammered Cardiff City 3-0 at home (with two very late goals to make it look better than it was).
