Newcastle Now Ahead Of 2009-2010 Pace


With our third win in a row in all competitions on Saturday against Rotherham United, Newcastle moved onto 58 points from our 27 games played and back to top of the league.

In the 27th league game seven years ago Newcastle drew 0-0 at Leicester City, so we are now 2 points head of the pace of Chris Hughton’s side seven years ago with a better goal difference.

But we’ll still have a challenge to beat the 102 points Chris got that season – Newcastle went on to win 14 of their last 19 games in the league and lost only one more game.

    I don’t want Townsend back simply b/c
    haven’t impressed the way I saw him at Palace and went backwards.I would rather prefer the likes of Boudabouz,Will Hughes,Grenier or those Belgian youngsters.Why would he gamble on a player who is struggling to make an impact,while there are better options out there for 10+ million?No surprise if king Ash sidestepped earlier and told him;
    “be careful who u bring in!”
