It’s almost four years since Newcastle last won at the Emirates, and with Newcastle having lost five league games in a row, there doesn’t seem to be much chance of getting anything out of this game.
Alan Pardew – needs something like a shock win at Arsenal
And the Newcastle fans seem to agree with that, with only 7% thinking we can actually get a win tomorrow night.
But something like a win tomorrow night is exactly what Alan Pardew and the players should be aiming for – to make up for what has been one terrible year so far for Newcastle United.
A win tomorrow night is exactly what the team and the fans need – so we can all start to look ahead to better times – certainly better than our terrible form over the last 18 games, when we have just four wins and thirteen defeats,
And Sunderland are doing themselves some good at the Stadium of Light today, and are 2-0 up at the half against Cardiff who are also down to 10 men, with Cala having been sent off just before the break.
He fouled Connor Wickham when he had a clear goal scoring opportunity and he was the last man, so that’s a red card offense.
However the foul was outside the box, but the referee gave the penalty (picky, picky) and Borini scored again.
Earlier in the game Connor Whickham got his 4th goal in the last three games with a good header for the Black Cats to put them 1-0 up after 26 minutes.
That’s what Newcastle need against Cardiff next Saturday – some luck – and a player sent off – even better would be two players sent off – just to make sure.
If Sunderland win today, they will be on 32 points and will be out of the relegation zone for the first time in a very long time – and they have three games to play (32+9=41), but they cannot catch Newcastle. 😀
