I guess that when we have lost six games in a row and looked hopeless in most of those games, and only scored two goals in the process, the confidence of Newcastle fans isn’t exactly at its peak – instead – there is a lot of anger, despair and frustration with the club.
Fab Coloccini – at least we had the new strips out this week
That was good news wasn’t it?
Cardiff have 5 points from their last six games, as they fight for their Premier League survival, and the majority of Newcastle fans – 55% – expect Newcastle to lose today, and only just over one in five expect us to win the game.
Come to think of it if we lose then Sunderland fans wouldn’t be too pleased, after they hammered Cardiff 4-0 last Sunday at the Stadium of Light.
And they are at a rejuvenated Manchester United today, and then play at home to West Brom on Wednesday and at home to Swansea on the following Sunday in their final game – and they could still go down – with their home form having been poor this season.
But Sunderland were given a penalty just before half time last Sunday, and a Cardiff player was sent off and that’s what we need – and it would be even better if two Cardiff players are sent off.
We’d have an improved chance of even winning the game – assuming we can score a goal.
