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.
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.
