If Newcastle can get a win at Everton on Monday night, then we will be very nicely placed in the Premier League table on Monday night, with the top sides today continuing to drop points.
David Moyes – under pressure at Manchester United
Both Manchester clubs lost today, with United losing at home 2-1 against West Brom, and it’s their second Premier League loss in a row, and their worst start in the Premier League since 1988 – so we suppose that puts David Moyes under pressure.
We watched the Aston Villa Manchester City game, when in the first half City could and should have been two or three goals up until Yaya Toure scored just before the break.
City were pushing to go further ahead, but then Villa equalized through Karim El Ahmadi with their first shot on target in the game, and then City went ahead again through Dzeko five minutes later, and were hanging on with City much the superior side.
And then after 73 minutes two amazing goals from Villa, one from a wonderful free kick from Leandro Bacuna and two minutes later a long drop kick from Brad Guzan went straight through to Andreas Weimann who put the ball past Hart for an amazing winner – but where were the two City center-backs – just terrible defending.
This game is an illustration that if you cannot take your chances the side under the gun – Aston Villa today – are always in with a chance – and of course Villa never give up.
We should remember this game and result when we host City in the Capital One Cup at the end of October.
And Hull won their second league game in a row with a rather fortunate first half penalty against West Ham at home, while Tottenham and Chelsea dropped 2 points each in their 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane.
Cardiff won 2-1 at Fulham, so the London side are in a real slump and 3rd bottom on 4 points, and Newcastle visit an in-form Cardiff side next Saturday afternoon before the two week International break.
Sunderland host Liverpool tomorrow, and then we play at Everton on Monday night, and we are really hoping our lads can make up for the big disappointment against Hull City.
A point would be good – and a win would be simply great.
