I talked to my son Neil last night, and we went over just how well Newcastle have played ion their last four games, and with a lot of the top teams having trouble this season – like Tottenham losing 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday as one example – the stage could be set for Newcastle to go even higher from our current 8th position in the league table.
Alan Pardew – trying to keep handle on high expectations
But one thing the manager keeps telling everybody associated with Newcastle, is to keep our feet on the ground, but things are certainly looking good at the moment with this Newcastle side, with the new Frenchmen now coming through for the club – and we look a very good side – well let’s say a good side.
Newcastle have three league wins in a row right now, and that’s something not many Premier League teams can boast about this season.
But the goal has to be to extend that winning run as long as possible, starting with a good West Brom side on Saturday afternoon.
In fact we play three games by a week on Saturday, and we have Swansea next Wednesday at the Liberty Stadium, and then Manchester United at Old Trafford the following Saturday.
So there are three tough games coming up for Newcastle, as we start the very heavy December schedule, when we play seven league games through New Years Day, when we are at West Brom.
It will be interesting to see where we are positioned in the league table after that game on January 1st, but one thing in our favor is not just that our players are starting to gel well, but that we have very few injuries – in fact absolutely none at the moment.
So there’s a reason for optimism at Newcastle, but we’ll try to keep a lid on it.
But that’s not easy as a die-hard Newcastle supporter. 😀
