Middlesbrough And Fulham Have Poor Away Records – Good!

The good news for Newcastle is that both Middlesbrough and Fulham have picked up most of their points this season at home.


Michael Owen – can he get back on goals trail?

 Each has only two wins each away from home, the same as Newcastle, but we currently have twice that number of wins at home at St. James’ Park.

Fulham have gained only 14 of their 47 points away from home this season, and Middlesbrough have just 8 points, of their 31 total points, away from the Riverside Stadium this season.

On the other hand Newcastle have 19 points of their total 31 points at St. James’ Park, with 4 wins and 7 draws.

So it would seem that the stats may be on the side of Newcastle United in our next two home games, which if we can win, we will in all likelihood save our season, and remain in the Premier League for next season, and that would be just fantastic.

And certainly if we win against Middlesbrough, the lads will be more than ready for the Fulham game, so of course our next game is all important.

But the question remains whether the Newcastle can shake themselves out of their terrible comatose form of just 4 draws and 6 defeats in our last 10 league games, and of course the absence of Joey Barton hardly helps the creativity of our team, which is almost non-existent at the moment.

They can still save themselves and not be the squad that was way overpaid, and remembered for taking Newcastle out of the Premier League, after 16 seasons.

Come on lads, give yourselves a good shake – and get us out of trouble – you can still do it!

    If we can start a fast game i think we can win it.
    Remember: For the TRUTH newcastle fans around the world

    Please PRAY around the stadium for our team Newcastle Utd to win on home soil against Middlesbrough. OK!

    I’ll be sayin my prayer in SINGAPORE.

    IT will helps.

  • I cant see it being 0-0 with all the defensive mistakes us and Boro make.

    I think its gonna be a game of epic proportion. IT IS MASSIVE. I believe we can win even if its a 92nd last second goal for us. My worries is that we may start fast and end slow. But im sure the lads are for a fight of their lives.Nolan would be perfect fit in the squad, hes a fighter, as well as Duff. I hope to see some good attacking option.

    On Fulham:

    “…gained only 14 of their 47 points away from home this season”

    …the bad news there though Ed is 8 out of those 14 points away have been draws: 7 nil nils and one 1-1.

    Five of those eight Fulham draws were at Arsenal, spuds, Liverpool, Villa and Portsmouth.

    …sorry to pi55 on chips but Fulham will just put 10 men behind the ball for 90mins – unless we find our shooting boots it’s a nailed on nil-nil (or worse!).

    …as for the smogs, 3 points is absolutely imperative. I still think 3 points at Villa is more likely than home to Fulham.

    …and chuck, statistics sometimes do hold water mate, unfortunately for us though they currently look bad 🙁

    Roll on Monday evening!

    HOWAY THE LADS!!!!!!!

    This is what i have said earlier, Fulham and Boro are terrible away. I really think we can win at least one of this home games. Of course we should win both, but it is not impossible to get a result against Aston Villa too. They have been bad the last games! Fortunately they beat Hull yesterday.

    And it is nice to see that Chelsea can`t buy the champions league title, i now hope Barca crush man utd. in the champions league final.

    Howay the lads – champions league in 2011!!!(???) 😉
