With quite a bit of negativity around Newcastle this week, with Yohan Cabaye being sold and Loic Remy being banned for the next three games, the very last thing Newcastle fans need is a third successive defeat against Sunderland.
The game is at home and it’s been 91 years since the last time Sunderland beat Newcastle three times on the trot, and it was back in 1967 that Sunderland beat Newcastle twice in succession, which they also did last year.
So another defeat would be more than calamitous for Newcastle, and it’s not like we have our top side out tomorrow either, with our top three scorers – Remy, Cabaye and Gouffran all unavailable for one reason or another.
But most Newcastle fans think we can still win the game tomorrow, and that would provide a huge boost for us all – then we can look forward to a decent run-in to the season – whoever we are left with at 11:00 pm tonight.
Newcastle must win this game tomorrow, bit to lose would be more than tragic.
