Newcastle Need All Three Points Tomorrow At Stoke

The lads seem to have enjoyed their first full week of training, with Alan Shearer and Iain Dowie now in charge.


Hughton, Gutierrez, Beye and Colloccini share a joke – or something

Shearer told Newcastle TV that the lads will be going all out for the win tomorrow at the Britannia Stadium:

“It’s imperative to get a result and we will be going to get three points,”

“I’m not going to says draws are no good for us, because we would rather get a point than nothing.”

“But we are going to try to win the game. We need three points.”

We all now know that Stoke City have a great home record, and have until last week all but four of their points in the league from their home games.

Stoke in fact now 28 of their 35 points coming at the Britannia Stadium, but Newcastle have still to work out how they can get all 3 points tomorrow, given the perilous situation we find ourselves in the league.

Another defeat would be terrible, to say the very least, and we just have to turn this thing around soon, before it gets too late.

Shearer added:

“They are a tough nut to crack and most of their points have come at home.”

“They are big, strong and physical. They are very dangerous from set-pieces and we know all about them.” “But knowing and stopping are two different things.”

“We can try and tell the players until we’re blue in the face what they’re going to do. But they have to go out and battle, scrap and fight for everything as they would do every other week.”

The big and strong side of Stoke’s play is one thing that makes us think that Andy Carroll could be drafted in, to play alongside Michael Owen, and at some point we hope Alan will move to a 4-3-3 formation against the weaker sides, so we can get some goals.

We’ll be holding our breath tomorrow, and hoping that the long awaited turnaround and all 3 points arrive tomorrow night at Stoke. Otherwise the pressure on the club will increase even more.

Howay The Lads!!

    Why is everyone bigging up stoke, fair enough they are a rough and tumble team but they are hardly any tougher than manu away, we will win as long as our centre halves are on their game

    The only way I can see is getting three points tomorrow is if the team bus is clocked doing 90 mph in Stoke city centre. Everything points to a home win I’m afraid.

    That’s a great photo for a caption competition, Ed, although the sarcasm boys will be out in force.
    – Perhaps they’ve just heard they all have release clauses in the event of relegation.
    – Or Rory Delap has pulled his shoulder.

    Houghton just told them he feels he is ready for mainstream management.

    Nice attitude.

    I really don’t think stoke will beat us tomorrow. I think we’ll win in dramatic fashion. 3-0.
