So What’s Next For Newcastle?


It’s always good if a side after having their winning run ended can come back quickly with another win – and that is possible for Newcastle who travel to Burnley on Tuesday night in the Premier League.

Alan Pardew West Ham United

Alan Pardew – on the sidelines yesterday

But Newcastle will be without both Moussa Sissoko and Jack Colback for that game so it is another patched up side with nine players currently out through injury – Tim Krul, Fab Coloccini, Rolando Aarons, Mehdi Abeid, Davide Santon, Ryan Taylor, Gabriel Obertan, Siem de Jong and Jonas Gutierrez.

There was always going to be pressure on Alan Pardew once the winning run ended – by those who have invested a lot in wanting him  out of the club.

And there is even a report out today that says it could be a nightmare for Newcastle before Christmas – and that we could lose our next five games.

Now there’s some positive thinking for you.

But Newcastle are  Newcastle – and the club has never believed in doing things in half measures – so it’s going to be an important game at Burnley on Tuesday night for us.

And the Lancashire side, who are second bottom of the table right now, have two wins and a draw in their last three league games.

A win would be terrific before we face Chelsea on Saturday, and the London side were held to a 0-0 draw at Sunderland yesterday, the first time they haven’t scored this season  Chelsea that is.

Here’s our games in the next month – so we are playing some very good sides – home and away.

December:

Tue 02	19:45	A   Burnley			
Sat 06	12:45	H   Chelsea				
Sat 13	17:30	A   Arsenal				
Wed 17	19:45	A   Tottenham - Capital One Cup			
Sun 21	13:30	H   Sunderland				
Fri 26	15:00	A   Man Utd				
Sun 28	16:15	H   Everton	

However, some of the top clubs this season – including Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham and even Everton having exactly been at the top of their game, so Newcastle can still do well in those fixtures next month, if we can play like we’ve played over the last couple of months.

And we should have players like Fab Coloccini, Rolando Aarons, Mehdi Abeid, Davide Santon, Jonas Gutierrez, Siem de Jong and Ryan Taylor fit again soon, and that should help.

Howay The Lads!!

    We’ve beaten spurs, man city and then Liverpool in a week, what’s stopping us form doing the same to Chelsea, Arsenal, mackems and man utd.

    People on here are forgetting we got injuries of our own, and we have done well without them, imagine what we could do this season with everybody fit.

    Regarding the suspensions for the Burnley match, it was always on the cards!

    See that Welshy? A joke with relevance.

    Bring back Coloccini and let Dummett step up as defensive midfielder.
