Surprise Results Of Poll On Leicester Result

We had thought that Newcastle fans would have been more upbeat on our chances of beating Leicester City at home on Saturday, but they are not, and the fans are split almost evenly on whether we will win or lose the game.

Alan Pardew – a win against Leicester can give us confidence

Here’s the current voting on the result of the game.

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Leicester City?

It’s been a week in which we have heard from both Alan Shearer and Sir John Hall about the game, and both want the fans to support the team and the manager on Saturday, so we can get a win.

And both men mention that it’s not a good time to continue the protests against Alan Pardew and owner Mike Ashley.

Both Alan and Sir John have influence with the Geordie fans, so we’re sure the crowd will give our lads every chance to win the game – but the players also have to show up and offer some significant effort and skill too.

This is almost a watershed game for the club.

We should hear from Alan Pardew later today at his news conference for the Leicester game, and we’ve even had some good news yesterday that goalkeeper Tim Krul should be fit to start, after Newcastle issued a statement that Tim had not in fact damaged the ligaments in his elbow.

This is what Alan Pardew has said about the vital game coming up on Saturday:

“We have a home game coming up and that’s important for us.” “If we can get a win there it will give us the confidence to go forward.”

If the 36% of fans are correct and we lose the game it’s going to be a depressing for Newcastle fans on Saturday night, very depressing, because we will have to accept the fact that we are in for a hard long slog this season, if we are to stay in the Premier League.

And it will seem like our squad is just not strong enough this season, and it’s odds on that more players need to come through the door in the January transfer window to strengthen the squad,  if we are to avoid a second relegation in six years. 🙁

It’s all so very depressing,  so we really do hope we can win the game on Saturday.

As Alan Shearer said, it’s one of those games where the result is all important,. rather than how well the lads play.

What do you think?

    Leicester are a tough, organised team and we have a toothless attack. I think both will play for a draw and it will end 0-0

    I’d say over a third voting for a win, given our form over the past 10 months is pretty upbeat Ed. I understand what you are saying, but we don’t have a god given right to beat Leicester, and they will fight every second of the match for something.

    Ulloa is a big worry up against our defence. Strong in the air and has great movement losing his man in the box.

    That poll illustrates the air of despondency and hopelessness that Ashley’s brought on.

    It’s a shame that confidence is so low – when will he see that there’s more to football than money.

    Chase 3 points with your head in the sand by going easy on Pardew, yet we lose many many more whilst he is still here.

    That is logical is it?

    Pardew out, Ashley out.

    That poll illustrates nothing other than sadly Ed cannot filter who votes . There will be fans of other clubs voting esp Sunderland who seem to have a morbid fascination with us.

    Just ocurred to me. Media team briefing today? Pardew and Bishop have had two weeks of solid PR rehearsal. AP will be feeling back to his relaxed and cocky self…. and up for it; infact job done.
    Until Saturday.
    This is such a slow way to die.

    Even with a win coming game it’s still one hell of a mountain we’ve given ourselves to climb.
    This first part of the season was when we should have been clocking up the points in preparation for the tougher games later.

    That’s what I thought the plan would be. Guess we’ll be needing another plan then!

    Anyone got one? Obviously the oxygen thieves weren’t included in the request for responses to that as its clear they haven’t got one.

    Or maybe they do and theyre just waiting till the last minute to give us a nice surprise for Xmas.

    This for me sums up our current predicament, the poll shows virtually an even split win loose draw against Leicester at home, wow, how sad is that, that show what the fans think, so we are a top seven side in the making are we and as Siem de Jong was quoted as saying we will be pushing Man Utd hard for that 4th champions league spot this season, Quite incredible really given our form over the last ten months or so.

    We may turn our form around when players settle in (who knows) but we have no bite in midfield no nous and serious lack of pace especially in our two” centre backs” at the back and an inconsistent forward line, prove me wrong NUFC and i will hold my hand up and eat that lovely humble pie!!!!!
