There is not a lot of confidence about Newcastle being able to get much out of the game at the Etihad Stadium against Manchester City tomorrow – according to our fans.
Jack Colback – on 9 yellow cards
In fact a whopping 82% think we will lose the game and only 10% think we will win the game.
But it’s also interesting to go back to the Capital One Cup tie on October 29th and how fans thought we would do in that game – after losing the previous 11 games against City in all competitions..
More thought we could win it – one in three thought we could win back in October – which we did – by a score of 2-0, with a draw not being a possible outcome as the game would go to extra time and penalties if possible.
And we didn’t need extra time or penalties.
So there’s always hope. 😀
Jack Colback is on 9 yellow cards so it’s important he doesn’t pick up a 10th yellow card tomorrow, otherwise he will be suspended for two games and will miss the important game at home to Aston Villa next Saturday.
We’re already missing far too many players through injury.
The positive thing about the poll for tomorrow is that if we can get anything at all out of the game it will be a welcome and positive surprise.
So the lads should go all out tomorrow – they have absolutely nothing to lose.
