There will be significant pressure on Alan Pardew and his players to start getting some good results in the next two weeks, when we play Manchester City tomorrow night, Chelsea on Saturday and Tottenham eight days after that.
Cheick Tiote – should captain Newcastle again tomorrow night
If it’s one thing Newcastle have been consistent with this season, it’s being inconsistent, and it would be true to form that after a terrible result against Sunderland on Sunday, that we actually beat Manchester City tomorrow night to reach the quarter finals of the Capital One Cup, and then an easy home draw could even see us in the final four.
But we have never beaten City for a number of years, and they always seem to get the better of us.
We were hammered 4-0 in the first game of the season, and lost 4-0 and 3-1 in the league last season, and in the season we finished 5th top they still beat us 3-1 and 2-0, and since we’ve been back in the Premier league we’ve played them seven times and lost them all.
So one way to look at those statistics is that we are due a win.
Let’s know how you think the game will go tomorrow night.
Let’s hope Newcastle remain hopelessly inconsistent, because then we could even win the game tomorrow night.
