It’s a crucial game tomorrow against Leicester City and my wife of 42 years, Madeline, has just made a very wise decision – she’s decided to go out shopping while the game is on TV over here – that’s a good decision – obviously made from past experience.
Paul Dummett – in action at Swansea
Maybe it’s because I told her a Newcastle defeat tomorrow would be a complete and utter disaster?
My wife knows less than zilch about football, and I don’t know how many times I’ve said – they the ones in the black and white stripes – when she invariably asks – which team is Newcastle? 😀
But it’s really going to be very hard to take if we cannot get a win tomorrow, but we’re hoping for the best – that’s for sure – maybe we can even get some luck tomorrow
Paul Dummett is likely to line up at left-back unless Alan Pardew has some surprises when the team is announced tomorrow at around 2:00 pm.
Paul is fit after he pulled out of the Welsh squad with an injury almost two weeks ago, and this is what the Geordie has said about tomorrow’s game:
“It’s a different pressure, especially when you’re near the bottom of the league and haven’t picked up a win in the Premier League yet, so it adds more pressure but that’s what we’re paid to play for, so it’s up to us to go to St. James’ and win.”
“Leicester are a good team, they work well together and they work hard.” “They’ve proved that if you do that in the Premier League then you can win games.” ¨They beat Manchester United so it’ll be a tough game, but we’ll definitely be up for it.”
If we cannot win tomorrow, it looks like we could be in for another long hard season – and its the very last thing we want after the last couple of seasons, which haven’t been great.
Wonder when that multi-Billionaire from somewhere out there, is going to buy out Mike Ashley and say his (or her) goal in the next few years is to return Newcastle United to its past greatness?
