Newcastle have just 3 points from our last 3 games over the holiday period, but back in 2009-2010 under Chris Hughton we also got three points with three draws in those corresponding fixtures.
We drew 2-2 at Sheffield Wednesday – then drew 0-0 at home to Derby County and 2-2 at home to West Brom.
That was the game when Steven Taylor picked up his serious knee injury and was out for the rest of the season and in came Mike Williamson from Portsmouth for £1M.

So it’s really good news that we are actually doing a little better than we did seven years ago.
That’s because our goal difference is slightly better, although Hughton’s team back then had lost only three games but drawn seven, where today we have lost seven games but drawn only one.
Back then we ended up with 30 wins and four defeats for 102 points to win the Championship.
