Newcastle have to continue their good form in Saturdayâ€™s game against fellow strugglers Reading at St. Jamesâ€™ Park.

While we are 9 points above 3rd bottom placed Bolton Wanderers, we are still not mathematically safe from the drop and Saturday is a good time to put on a good attacking display for the Newcastle faithful. They deserve nothing less.
This season has been one of the most disappointing in recent years, given how high the hopes were last August with a new Billionaire Owner, a new Manager and a New Chairman.
But itâ€™s been a terrible season of under-achievement for the Newcastle players and the club. We will suffer by again having no European competition next season for the second season running, and that’s just not good enough.
But now the team are coming off both their best performance and best result of the season last Sunday, and the lads need to put on a similar show on Saturday at St. James’ Park.
We have 6 games left in the league and if we can beat Tottenham at White Hart Lane, in the style we did, then thereâ€™s absolutely no reason we cannot win each of our last 6 games.
That may not be likely but that should be the target for the team – to do just that. If we can collect as many points as possible in our last 6 games with as many wins as possible, we could still end up in the unlikely position of being in the top half of the table after such a disastrous season.
Letâ€™s see if we can do just that – starting with all 3 points on Saturday, against a team who will be hard to break down but are definitely beatable.
What do you think?
