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.
