We’ve had a terrible time of things in the last four games with a paltry 2 points from 12, and that’s hardly promotion form.
The coaches need to inspire the lads today
Put in there our humiliating defeat at Scunthorpe on Tuesday night and Chris Hughton is now getting more than his share of criticism, even though the team is still joint top of the league.
The fact that no team has gained too much on the Magpies shows that there are no dominant teams in the Championship, and Newcastle are probably the best team around.
There’s no room this season for any mental weakness, that showed up in spades last season.
We need the lads to shake off their poor form of the last couple of weeks and go out today and take the game by the scruff of the neck, and ensure we get all 3 points against Doncaster this afternoon.
After all Doncaster have yet to win away this season, so while it will not be easy, surely the skill of the players and a packed St. James Park, can ensure a victory this afternoon.
It’s all in the players’ heads right now – and now is the time to show that they are a strong team mentally, and use the new team spirit they have generated this season to good effect this afternoon.
A win will raise the morale of Newcastle fans everywhere – and it’s not like we are playing a team like Manchester United – after all – apologies to Doncaster fans.
Howay The Lads!!
