Can Newcastle Win Two Games In A Row This Year?

8:39 am, Wednesday, December 9th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 7 Comments

On 22nd November last year we beat QPR at home 1-0 and that was out fifth league win in a row and sixth in all competitions when you consider we also beat Manchester City 2-0 in the League Cup at the Etihad Stadium.

And that was the last time we won two games in a row and this year in our 34 league games played we have only six wins.

But since we won last time out we have the chance to get two wins in a row for the first time this year – if we can somehow beat Tottenham on Sunday at White Hart Lane.

Steve McClaren – chance to get two wins in a row

But if our pattern this season continues we could be two down to Spurs early in the game – but we are hopping for much better things on Sunday and that Newcastle can put in another gutsy performance  in the 4:00 pm kickoff game.

It was a great win on Sunday against Liverpool but we are still in a precarious position in the league – something we had not expected when the season started.

The games through the end of what has been a terrible year for Newcastle are very important, so we can lift ourselves off the bottom of the table and be in a decent position during January – when we have to attract some good players to the club to (vastly) improve our squad.

At the very least we need to see 100% from every single Newcastle player on Sunday and if the lads can do that – then who knows – football is a strange game at times.

    I notice we are being treated to happy, smiling, joyful Steve McLaren pics rather than the usual head in hands pit of despair Steve McLaren pics these days. Don’t chuck the despair pics out just yet,Ed you might still be needing them…

    Happy smiling McClaren……Looks like the clown of Stephen King’s “IT”.

    Minus the make-up of cause!

    Win two games in a row ?
    Of course, if Christmas comes early
    Three on the trot would be better

    Not wishing to start another Pardew discussion today (I missed it last night), but simply to say I wonder how long it will take for the ‘haters’ to start saying ‘just you wait till his third full season at Palace. That’s when it’ll all come crashing down around his head’ instead of the current mantra of his second full season.
    It’s quite significant that the only negative comments you ever hear about AP these days come from certain bloggers on here.

    Got to be pragmatic.
    A point at The Lane would be brilliant.

    @Mag25. I won’t deny that I don’t miss Pardew. Nothing to do with his tactics or how he managed the team, just never liked him, still don’t. He’s a self-serving little muppet and the stories I hear about him from people within sport journalism do not paint him, as a person, in a good light.
