It’s just amazing what wins does for the confidence of both players and fans at Newcastle, and after what was a great win for us at Hull last week, there seems to even be some confidence being shown from the Newcastle fans for the game against Stoke today.

And while the performance last week wasn’t great, Newcastle fans were delighted with all 3 points – and it felt good.
And Hull gave Manchester City all they could handle at the Etihad Stadium yesterday, and it took a stoppage time equalizer from former Newcastle winger James Milner to get City a 1-1 draw, after David Meyler had out them ahead in the first half.
Maybe we caught Hull at a good time last week, or else maybe we were better than we thought we were last week?
The defense was still a bit dodgy and we’ll have to be more resilient today, but a good 61% think we can win this game today, and only 18% think we will lose it.
We’d probably be happy enough with a point, but wins is what takes clubs up the league table.
And given what’s been going on this season already, and (yet) another duck in the January transfer window, a good run of wins is what we need – continuing today at home to a good Stoke City side.
Howay The Lads!!
