It’s a big game this Thursday night in the Europa League against Greek side Atromitos, and also on Sunday afternoon at St. James’ Park against Aston Villa, and with so many top teams dropping points in their first two league games, a Newcastle win would see us with 6 points from our three games, and well positioned in the Premier League during the International break.
Alan Pardew – our fans are brilliant
With two weeks and a day before our next game, this is not the time for Newcastle to put in a poor performance in the upcoming two home games this week, and Alan Pardew is today thanking their fans for their terrific supportm, and he had this to say to nufcTV:
“Our fans will be there if they can afford it, and hopefully they can.” “Tough times at the minute, but they were brilliant on Saturday, absolutely brilliant our fans are, and we thank them for their support, and hopefully next Thursday we can give them something happy to cheer about.”
Our first game after the International break is a daunting one at Everton on Monday night 17th September at 8:00 pm, and Everton have been in great form so far this season, with two good wins from their first two games, and Goodison Park is always a difficult place for Newcastle to visit.
We have to hope that there is a good attendance for Thursday night’s game against Atromitos, which has an 8:00 pm kick off, and then on Sunday against Villa, when the kick-off is at 4:00pm.
Hey, two wins this week and we’ll be in good shape – well positioned in the Premier League after the first three games and in the Europa League group stages – with the guarantee of six European games before the end of the year.
Sounds good to us.
Howay The Lads!!
