Rafa Benitez and the Newcastle team will try to create a new record at Newcastle by being the first team in our long history to win 10 games in a row.
That has never been done before and currently Kevin Keegan holds the record with nine.
Kevin did win 13 league wins in a row spread over two different seasons in 1992, but it was interrupted by a League Cup draw at Mansfield (0-0) in the second leg of that tie on 25th August, 1992.
Kevin won 11 games in a row to start off the 1992-1993 season in the second division (then called Division One) – the first year of the Premier League.
Owen Coyle – Blackburn manager
Newcastle play 3rd bottom Blackburn Rovers at home on Saturday and we have heard comments from manager Owen Coyle and one or two of the players they could shock Newcastle.
Anything is possible in football, but we are hoping the lads can get another 3 points and continue winning through the end of this year.
We are currently 9 points above 3rd placed Reading and we are hoping to increase that points gap between Newcastle and the 3rd placed team by the end of the year – by as much as possible.
