Newcastle Fans Less Confident About Saturday

8:08 am, Thursday, November 28th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 5 Comments

Last Saturday was a game Newcastle should have own against a struggling Norwich City side, and we did it, but West Brom are a different proposition, and in their last game on the road they should have beaten Chelsea 2-1, but for a ridiculous penalty decision by referee Mike Riley in added time, that saved Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten home league record while manager at Chelsea.

And in last week’s voting on the outcome of the game, 75% thought Newcastle would beat Norwich City, but only 57% think Newcastle will win the game against West Brom on Saturday, and 32% think it will end up as a draw.

And here’s your chance to vote, if you haven’t already done so.

A win on Saturday would be just terrific, because as we stand right now, we are 2 points behind 4th place and 4 points behind second place, although that should be 3 points and 5 points respectively, because of our poor goal difference.

But a win is what the lads will be going for, and we also have a fully fit squad, so it’s not beyond the realm of possibility we can get our 4th league win on the trot.

That would be fantastic.

    I’ll never presume a game is in the bag, well except against the mackems, but we have a decent chance.

    I’m not 100% confident of the win but i am 100% confident we can get the win if we play to the level we are capable of.

    Obviously this is a game that can go either way.
    A win would be great, but I still wouldn’t be surprised if we come crashing back down with a bump.
    I see no reason for us to be afraid, but we must be wary of the long ball over the top, and keep concentrating for 90+ minutes.
    Will be interesting to see which line-up Pardew goes with. Particularly the back 4

    I noticed BBC Newcastle commentator Mick Lowes is back after recovering from a broken arm – hope he is not a Jonah!

    Thank God we aren’t in Europa league action tonight.
    No excuse for Pardew on Saturday.

    Baggies have a very good away record. Only lost once. Should be a good game.
