Remember Hull City – Please

Before we played Hull City on 21st September, we had three wins in a row and four games unbeaten, and we had drawn with West Ham and then beaten Morecambe away in the League Cup, and had wins against Fulham at home and Aston Villa away in the league, and in those four games we had scored five goals and conceded only one.

Alan Pardew – must have his players up for the game tomorrow

So things were turning around,  and we were up against Hull City at home, who had only managed to score two goals in their four league games so far, and none away from home.

So surely we could get another 3 points and push ourselves up the league table.

But things are not that easy in the Premier League and who would have thought we would concede three poor goals at home, and go down to a shocking 3-2 defeat.

And that was when we were 1-0 ahead and the 2-1 ahead at half time – and we still conjured up a way to lose that game to a side we should have beaten.

But Hull scored on more goal than they had scored in their previous four games, and it was away from home too – a great win for Steve Bruce’s Hull City, and a humiliating home defeat for Newcastle.

And dare we say it – things are eerily similar now to what they were before the Hull City game, as we’ve pointed out before over the last couple of weeks. 🙁

Newcastle are coming off  two magnificent wins against Chelsea at home and Tottenham away, and if we play like we have in those last three league games, we should win tomorrow.

But Newcastle are an inconsistent side, and it would just be like Newcastle this season, not to play at their best tomorrow.

The Hull City result and performance will be something that Alan Pardew will be drumming into his players before tomorrow’s game,  as a lesson to be learned.

74% think we will win that game tomorrow.

As we said before, we should be very wary of Norwich City tomorrow afternoon, and hope our players all turn up for a tough and difficult game and play very well, because that’s what it will take for a third successive league win.

What do you think?

    Didn’t we come out and say that Sissoko and Gouffran we bought forward because of the position we were in otherwise we would have tried to get them for the summer as they would have been free

    We’ve a different team since Hull .. Haven’t we?

    Norwich are such a boring side, really hope we embarass them ..
    Same fixture last season was shocking; it was one of my daughters 1st ever match and even she asked why no one was singing (having told her how good n loud it was gonna be)
    Don’t know if everyone was show a lot of respect to Chris Hughton’s return or what?
    Or was it the Norwich’s “Let’s Bore the World Spell”
    A win on Sat is cert .. C’mon 🙂
