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.
