Newcastle are playing the second bottom side Aston Villa this afternoon, and usually we would have a sizable ratio of fans thinking we can win this game.
For our home game against Crystal Palace on 30th August, 70% thought we would win the game, and when we played Hull City at home on 20th September, 66% of fans thought we would win the game.
As it turns out we drew both games, but today only 40% think we can win the game, and maybe that’s because of various reasons.
Aston Villa are not a bad side and have only recently been taken over by Tim Sherwood, the former Tottenham manager.
And Newcastle have also been struggling with John Carver in charge, and we have only 6 points from the seven league games John has been in charge of the side.
And we are coming off a 5-0 hammering at the Etihad Stadium in what was maybe our worst display of the season.
We really need to get all three points today.
Another defeat would be really hard to take.
What do you think?
