After Sunderland were hammered 5-0 at Chelsea this afternoon, a win against Aston Villa on Monday night, will take Newcastle above Sunderland in the league.
Roy Keane – not happy – two successive defeats since Newcastle win
Sunderland are on 12 points but their goal difference is a poor -12 compared with Newcastle -6, so if we can secure 3 points against the Villa at St. James’ Park, we will go above Sunderland in the league table.
And that’s just a short 10 days after Sunderland beat us at Sunderland for the first time in 28 years, which caused tremendous gloom and doom on Tyneside, and the opposite effect on Wearside.
If that isn’t a tremendous incentive to win the game on Monday night for Newcastle, we don’t know what is.
Strange game this football.
Howay The lads.
