Newcastle Front And Center In Premier League Run-In

With Manchester City beating Manchester United 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium last nigh, they go top of the Premier League on goal difference, and Newcastle become a very important club in the run-in to the Premier League.

Alan Pardew – will be looking forward to next two games

Newcastle are themselves in 5th place in the league table, and take on 6th placed Chelsea tomorrow night at Stamford Bridge, in a game that will help decide which club finishes in the coveted 4th place,  and a European Champions League position.

Next Sunday, Newcastle’s very last home game of the season is against league leaders Manchester City, and it kicks off at 1:30 pm,  and will finish before the Red Devils take on Swansea at Old Trafford at 4:00pm.

You can bet the footballing world will be watching the game, and it is fitting that a nine foot tall bronze statue of Newcastle’s great former manager,  Bobby Robson,  will be unveiled in a ceremony at St. James’ Park three hours before the kick off on Sunday.

If that’s not enough to inspire our players to get a victory in our last home game of the season, then nothing is.

The game against Manchester City will be great for our players to play in, and the lads have a chance to  prove Newcastle have a very good team this season.

And  it will not go unnoticed that in early January we took the Red Devils apart 3-0 at St. James’ Park,  in a wonderful attacking display, and that was only one of  three games this season that Manchester United have not scored in.

The other two are when they lost recently at Wigan 1-0, and the 1-0 defeat last night at the Etihad Stadium.

So Newcastle’s next two games will be crucial for the Tyneside club, and will also help to decide the final placings in the top four of the English Premier League this season.

A win on Sunday would be absolutely fantastic,  and would make positive headlines around the world for the Magpies.

Howay The Lads!!

    Pretty sure that’s not our very last game Ed. In fact, let’s hope it goes to the wire, down to our 38th game.

    We have nowt to lose, everything to gain. We surely MUST attack this game as if their lives depended on getting 3 points!!

    Champions League would be just an amazing thing to achieve – the icing on the cake!! I’m flying back tomorrow for the game on Sunday, so looking forward to it.
