Newcastle have drawn, lost, drawn and won in their four games played this season, with the only poor performance being against Swansea, when we were reduced to 10 men just before the break at the Liberty Stadium.
Newcastle had a good 4-1 win at home to Northampton on Tuesday night in the League Cup, with essentially a second team playing, but there were some good performances in that game.
Steve McClaren on the touchline against Northampton
Steve McClaren will have some tough decisions to make when he selects the team for the early game (12:45 pm kick-off) against Arsenal on Saturday, but it seems like the team is starting to come into a little bit of form.
Maybe we can make it two wins in a row on Saturday, before the long two week International break.
