We’ve been following how we compare with Chris Hughton’s season seven years ago and we have been tracking very close to the miracle Chris achieved back in the 2009-2010 season.
It’s interesting that in the 29th game in early 2010 we suffered our biggest defeat of the season and it was at Derby County when we lost 3-0.
Yesterday in our 29th game we won 1-0 against the same club, so we are now 3 points better off than we were under Chris.

It’s got to be upward and onward from now on.
Chris won 13 of the last 17 games and drew the other four, so if we can do the same thing under Rafa Benitez this season, we’ll be home and dry and back in the Premier League.
Howay The Lads!!
