It would be a great time for Newcastle to get their second win under head coach John Carver in his first nine games in charge of the team on Saturday against Aston Villa.
John Carver – needs a win on Saturday
After last Saturday’s 5-0 walloping at the Etihad Stadium, which we are trying to (quickly) forget, the very best result in front of the home fans on Saturday would be a win against second bottom Aston Villa.
Villa are finding it hard to score goals in general this season, but even more so away from home and have scored four goals in their 13 games on the road in the league this season.
A win is the perfect result for us – and it’s one of those games where the performance is probably secondary.
But we’d love to see Newcastle show some good form against struggling Aston Villa and also get all three points.

As part of that work Will needs lots of questionnaires filled in – see if you can help him by filling out this questionnaire – thanks.
Note – we had 6 inches of snow here in Raleigh overnight and a couple of my Leyland Cypress trees are down – the electricity and therefore the internet are up and down – so I’ll get some reports out as best I can today.
