Poll: Geordie Fans Confident Of Southampton Result


Newcastle fans are surprisingly confident of getting a decent result in our first league game of the season against Southampton tomorrow at St. James Park.

In fact 44% think we will be able to get the season off with a win against a side who finished 7th top of the Premier League last season with 60 points – 21 points more than Newcastle and of course we slumped badly in the second half of last season under interim coach John Carver.

Steve McClaren – can he start with a win tomorrow?

After getting only one win in the final 11 games of the season – and that was in the very last game – Newcastle fans have not seen too many wins this year – so it would be great to get all 3 points tomorrow in front of what we expect to be a sold-out St. James’ Park.

There’s still time to vote in our poll, if you haven’t already done so – one vote per reader.

A win tomorrow for the lads would be great.

    Let’s see how Perez or Cisse do with the chances created by Mitrovic! !!
    I genuinely believe both Cisse and Perez (great finishers) will get three times as many chances with the offensive players, midfield players we now have

    Imo

    Unless the back line is strengthened we will leak goals – hope we score more than we concede which was the same as last season.

    Bambams, none of our offensive players have ever had a good record of assists even when playing in weaker leagues, this is why we don’t score many. We buy in goal scorers not creators and the wonder why the goal scorers don’t score!

    Aye fella good shout. Over recent times only Cabaye and Benny could really open defences.

    I just think we will see a big change in style of play….Mind you saying that it couldn’t of been any worse than what we saw under Carver

    Well, happy days eh lads. Mackems getting stuffed out of sight – already ruined my super 6, as i had it 2-0. Young Arma off the mark at Coventry – the first of many no doubt. Leicester top of the league. 🙂 mackems bottom.

    Mag52,
    From previous, unfortunately I don’t think anything has changed, sure we have better coaches but literally anyone would have been an improvement on Carver, a Ford focus is a huge improvement on a Nissan Micra. We heard from the horses mouth that players are bought for financial purposes rather than with success in mind. I don’t believe that has changed.
    Ashley Out !
