Owen Coyle has been talking about tomorrow’s game at Newcastle and the 50 year-old experienced manager says he is looking forward to what may be their toughest game of the season.
On form and on league position we should win this game fairly easily, but things don’t always work out the way they are expected to (damn it!) and our first two games of the season at Fulham and at home to Huddersfield showed that.

We also managed to be beaten by lowly Wolves after we had taken QPR to the cleaners by a score of 6-0 at Loftus Road and that was our 6th win in a row at the time and in the previous five games we hadn’t even conceded a goal.
That home loss was another shock to the system.
Owen Coyle says he is under no illusions about the game at St. James’ Park tomorrow:
“The level we’re at people will envisage Newcastle away to be the toughest game of the season.” “I’m under no illusions, but what a fantastic game to look forward to.”
“It’s a brilliant game for us to go there and show that we’re a decent team and a game we certainly feel if we’re at our best we’re capable of getting a positive result from.”
“I’m sure people will have written us off already but if they have then they have certainly not watched our recent performances, because I believe we have enough to trouble the opposition.”
“The atmosphere will be the same because they sell out every week such is the passion of their fans.”
“But equally we have taken good followings to our away games and they have got behind the team and we want to go away from home and represent them and do well in the game and I believe we can do that.”
We’ll just have to see what happens tomorrow, but we have to believe in front of what could be another sellout crowd at St. James’ Park, our lads will be all ready to go to try to make it 10 wins in a row for the first time in our 124 year history.
A vast majority of fans think we can do that and put Rafa Benitez in Newcastle’s record books for the very first time.
