You may have noticed since the game was called off on Saturday, just three hours before KO time, there’s not been too much news on the Newcastle front.
Alan Pardew – hectic period coming up
And with the players being given two days off before they return on Wednesday, the news will not likely pick up much until then.
But this is very much the calm before the storm on Tyneside, because when we entertain that arrogant and spoiled bunch – Manchester City – on Sunday afternoon, it begins a four game period in the league in a short 10 days, and we’ll know where we end up come the last game of the four, when the lads are at home to West Ham on Wednesday evening, January 5th.
You would think Newcastle could get all 3 points against the Hammers who haven’t won away all season, and only managed four draws on the road, but you never know with Newcastle this season, until we can get a bit more consistency into the performances.
And of course then just 4 days after West Ham, the lads are away to Stevenage in the FA Cup 3rd round, so that’s 5 big games in just 13 days.
So the news and action should pick up big time starting towards the end of the week, and it would be interesting to see where we are in the league, and for that matter if we are still in the the FA Cup, when Saturday evening at 7:30 pm on the 8th January rolls around.
How about five successive wins?
OK – I was only kidding – kind of.
And we almost forgot – on January 1st the transfer window opens, and it looks like Newcastle will now be trying to bring some new players into the squad, with the recent arrival of new manager Alan Pardew.
