Newcastle went back to the top of the Championship this afternoon after an impressive showing against Birmingham City when we stopped the rot of three successive defeats and cruised to a 4-0 win over visiting Birmingham City.
And in front of a crowd of over 52,000 at St. James’ Park.

He’ll have to raise that.
