It would be good to get off to a good start to 2016 – especially after last year was one of the worst fans have had to endure in the long 123 year history of Newcastle United – with just 7 wins and 30 points in our 38 league games.
That’s relegation form with a capital R.
But Newcastle are at Arsenal tomorrow and we have lost the last eight league games against the Gunners and add to that the fact that Arsenal have won six and drawn one of theit last seven league games at home and it looks a home banker.
That’s what Newcastle fans think too.
But of course you just never know with Newcastle and if we are to pull away from the relegation zone and survive for a second successive season – then we have to start picking up points in the most unlikeliest of games.
We cannot have poor results in our four league games in January, so this one is really important.
