Newcastle need to make sure we win the next two games against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa and then we would have a very decent chance of making it three wins in a row in the final game of the season and possible safety from relegation.
Wouldn’t that be something.
Tottenham, with their draw last night against West Brom at White hart Lane now look like the best they can finish in the league is second top – and they will not be coming to St. James’ Park on May 15th where a draw or a win could get them the title.
Dele Alli – charged with violent conduct against West Brom
And the other good news for Newcastle is the youngster Tottenham beat Newcastle to 16 months ago – due to our dithering around again not being able to make a decision – Dele Alli – has been charged with violent conduct form that game.
That charge, if it holds up, usually carries a three match ban and would mean Alli could not play in any of the last three games of the season.
That includes the game against Newcastle so things are starting to potentially line up nicely for Newcastle.
But we cannot give any soft goals away in the last three games either.
Rafa Benitez will be working his socks off for the rest of the season (what’s new?) and will try his very best to conjure up a number of wins.
Two sellouts in the home games against Palace and Tottenham will help a lot and our lads will need to play out of their skins at Villa Park to secure only our third win on the road this season.
We have everything to play for and Villa don’t – but they will still give us a good game.
It’s up to our players to want the win so much more than Villa.
Howay The Lads!!
