It may not be the best time to play Liverpool.
Alan Pardew – will have our lads ready on Sunday
Liverpool beat Newcastle 3-1 on December 30th, and it was only the second time this season that The Reds have scored 3 goals at home in a league game – the other time being when they beat Bolton 3-1 in August.
But this year in the league Liverpool have been abysmal, and in 11 games they have won only two, drawn two and lost seven – so that’s only 8 points out of a possible 33.
That’s a terrible slump for a club like Liverpool, but they will be trying to come off two losses against relegation sides – QPR and Wigan - and trying to get their season back on track at St. James’ Park with a win.
The last thing Newcastle should be doing is being over-confident, and with Fabricio Coloccini missing the next couple of games, it will be a huge test for this new Newcastle side.
There’s no doubt our lads will be confident after coming off wins against Norwich and West Brom, and in our 8 remaining there’s only Manchester City who are currently above us in the league table, and they are our last home game on Sunday 6th May.
Former Newcastle players Andy Carool and Jose Enrique will be returning to Newcastle , and while Jose has been as good at Liverpool as he was at Newcastle, that’s not been the case with Andy, who so far has been a big disappointment.
This is a massive game for Newcastle, because a win will basically submarine Liverpool’s chances of catching Newcastle in the league, since we’ll be 11 points above them with just 7 games remaining.
A win will significantly increase the chances that Newcastle can finish 6th in the league table.
And if the Gods are with us – that may be good enough for a Europa league position – which would be fantastic.
We want to see Newcastle somewhere near their very best form on Sunday, and if they can play like that, we could get revenge on Liverpool for the 3-1 defeat at Anfield and we’ll all be in orbit.
Howay The Lads!!
