Even though our win last night was not a dominant one, against a rather mediocre WBA side, we have the chance to pick up some points in our next 3 games.
Newcastle United fans – good support last night
The next three league fixtures are:
Mon Nov 3: Aston Villa (H) 8:00 pm KO
Sun Nov 9: Fulham (A) 4:00 pm KO
Sat Nov 15: Wigan (H) 3:00 pm KO
A good target for those 3 games has to be 6 points – which means two wins out of the three. The hardest game is next Monday at home to Aston Villa, and it will be up to our defense to turn in a mammoth performance to see if we can keep the in-form Villa side at bay, but that will be tough.
However in the following two games, we have a good chance at winning both games, if we can play at our best and tighten up our defense, who are still giving away too many poor goals. The goal we conceded on 65 minutes last night was another poor one, when one pass split our defense right down the middle. 🙁
Why did we pick only the next three games? Because our 4th game is away at Chelsea, and while we almost picked up a point there (we were beaten by an 87th minute Salomon Kalou offside goal 2-1) in last season’s fixture back on December 29th, we would expect no points from that game realistically.
But we are very willing to be surprised.
