As we go into another (long and boring) two week International break we have time to reflect on how Newcastle have done so far this season.
Before the first International break we won an EFL cup tie at home to Cheltenham and got 9 points from the first five league games.
Before the second International break we beat Wolves in the 3rd round of the EFL Cup to line up Preston at home in the next round and in our 6 league games we got 13 points – a better return than in the first batch of games.
Rafa Benitez – looks like he’s pleased enough
Here’s some information on how we stand at the moment.
The league table.
The goalscorers so far.
How we compare with the 2009-2010 season at the same stage after 11 games.
And here are the upcoming games before the next International break which starts after the weekend of the 5th November – Guy Fawkes Day.
October Sat 15 15:00 H Brentford Tue 18 19:45 A Barnsley Sat 22 15:00 H Ipswich Town Tue 25 19:45 H Preston - EFL Cup 4th round Sat 29 15:00 A Preston November Sat 05 15:00 H Cardiff City
We’ve done quite well so far this season.
