Maybe it´s not surprising that almost 80% of our fans expect us to lose against Alan Pardew´s side at Crystal Palace tomorrow afternoon after the lacklustre disgrace last Saturday against Leicester.
Unfortunately, another defeat would be our 8th defeat in the first 14 league games and could mean we will end up in the bottom four by Christmas – unless we can dramatically improve both our form and results in some tough games coming up.
Steve McClaren will give press conference today
Steve McClaren and the coaching staff have finally had it out with the players this week for their lack of effort and guts – and some home truths were aired and that may even help for tomorrow´s game.
But what happens if and when Crystal Palace score the first goal?
Steve will give his press conference today and that could be very interesting given all that´s supposed to happen this week on the training field.
The players have a chance to show they are not wimps tomorrow in London – we hope they take the opportunity.
