There may even be a decent outcome to this season, even though we have lost our play-maker Yohan Cabaye, and that’s something that is far from fans’ minds at the moment.
Alan Pardew – has to prove he has what it take to be Newcastle manager
But Newcastle are still in a de nt position in the league table with 37 points form 324 games played and although our next two games at Chelsea and at home to Tottenham are difficult, easier ones are on the way.
These are the games we have through the end of March:
February Sat 08 15:00 A Chelsea Wed 12 19:45 H Tottenham Sun 23 13:30 H Aston Villa March Sat 01 15:00 A Hull City Sun 09 16:00 H Everton Sat 15 15:00 A Fulham Sat 22 15:00 H Crystal Palace Sat 29 15:00 A Southampton
After the Tottenham game we have a chance in every one of the next six games with the hardest Likely to be Everton at home and Southampton away.
And after the Chelsea and Tottenham games we should definitely have captain Fabricio Coloccini back, and we hope that Yoan Gouffran can return against Chelsea this Saturday, and he’s had a good season with seven goals.
And a certain Loic Remy will also return after the Tottenham game, so if we can get some result against Tottenham that would be good, but Spurs tend to be better away form home these days.
Loic has not future at Newcastle after this season, but if he can keep getting the goals he can help us stay around 8th place in the league and we are really hoping Luuk de Jong comes good before May.
So Alan Pardew, his coaching staff and the playing squad have an awful lot to prove after being beaten by Sunderland twice this season, and giving the Geordie fans another humiliating 3-0 defeat at St. James’ Park.
And we’ve lost the last four games at home, including three league games in which we have also failed to score a goal.
So much for St. James’ Park being the proverbial fortress.
Time to see what Alan and the players are made of.
