Can Newcastle Beat Sunderland On Sunday?

Things will be heating up this week before our encounter at Sunderland this Sunday, and it’s an important game – Sunderland need the points to stay up in the Premier League – and Newcastle need some points to stop our free fall down the league table this year.

Sunderland have been struggling mightily with relegation for the last three season, and made a miraculous recovery last year over the last five games to stay up, and they are now just one point above the drop zone in 4th bottom place.

They will be hoping that new manager Dick Advocaat can turn things around and quickly too, and what better opportunity than to beat Newcastle – again.

Newcastle are becoming a rich club, but we are still fairly hopeless on the pitch, and will have maybe only 15 fit and available senior players for this match, because of injury and suspension.

And Ashley’s reticence to spend money on the squad.

The only thing that matters in these games of course is the result,  and it’s no different this time around – and you can throw current form out of the window.

A Sunderland win will leave Newcastle fans decimated and a Newcastle win – which would only be our third in 13 games under John Carver – could help doom Sunderland to relegation.

So it’s all to play for.

    I hovered between win and draw – I can’t believe Advocaat has turned that ragbag around yet – then my finger clicked on win… But I am already having second thoughts.

    Jesperlemon. DO NOT READ.

    Looks like if rangers get promoted they will owe us 500k. It’s written into the rangers 5 loan contracts. Is he deflecting attention away from himself and onto us, NUFC. “Look it’s them not me”

    I’m sure they’ll be some Gers fans who will undoubtedly hold us responsible and scream it’s not fair.

    The rest of them must see it for what it is. Mustn’t they? Nobody can be THAT blind. Can they? Mind, some of our own fans are where the slug is concerned. Cue trumpets.

    Did I seriously read yesterday that we should wait until NEXT summer to see the fruits of the slugs labour? No. Just no. That’s taking the love just a tad too far.

    From previous, an extra day or two gives the most expensive PR team hired in the Prm to get a bit of spin out there.

    What kind of spin? I don’t see anything being sneaked out. I’ve been to pretty well all the news sites – nothing more than rehashes of the club’s official summary and the usual paranoid reaction from the Mag, echoed here there and everywhere as if it was the definitive consensus of 50,000 people.

    On paper we should beat Sunderland no problem, but their new manager and our injury ridden squad coupled with dwindling confidence in John Carver means Newcastle will struggle. We can only hope that Mike Ashley will see the effect of his penny pinching ways on the club and its supporters before it is too late. Better still he could sell up and put us all out of his misery !
