Newcastle are by no stretch of the imagination out of the woods yet – although it was great to get our first win of the season on Saturday against Leicester City – and it certainly was a great feeling – one Newcastle fans hadn’t had since early May – our last league win – when we hammered Cardiff City 3-0 at home (with two very late goals to make it look better than it was).
Cheick Tiote – back on Saturday
Next up is a tough game at Tottenham on Sunday, and that will be very difficult, and then we face Liverpool at home the following weekend.
One thing that may give us a (big) chance at White Hart Lane is that Tottenham face Greek side Asteras tomorrow night at home in Group C of the Europa League, so maybe they will not be at their best on Sunday?
It would be terrific if we could get a second win in a row, and we’re sure that’s what the lads will be going for this weekend, and with players like Cheick Tiote, Mike Williamson and Manu Riviere likely to be back – we should be able to field a decent side.
