How Newcastle Compare To 7 Years Ago After 37 Games

Newcastle had the exact same number of points (77) seven years ago under Chris Hughton after 37 games played, but it’s interesting that our goal difference seven years ago was better than today.

We had scored more goals and conceded less goals than we have done this season.

With Chris Hughton in charge we went on to win eight of the last nine games and drew the other one (2-2 at home to Ipswich) to end up on 102 points.

Chris Hughton – Newcastle manager – 2009-2010 season

It’s going to be very difficult to reach that total this season.

    The difference then was we had leaders on the pitch and didnot have Anita and Dummett. Mbemba must start next game.

    Many, including me, would consider Dummett one of our best defenders, this season and certainly our best left back this season. Mbemba is clearly not showing something to RAFA and is not likely to play again for the Toon. Anita has not done very well, since his return from injury, so our defence, with Clark and Yedlin injured should be Jesus, Lascalles, Hanley, Dummett.

    When will he realize that Mbemba is our best defender and Elliott is our best Gk? As I keeping saying,
    Lascelles and Darlow are nervous players and mistakes waiting to happen in them and always will be.Promotion is still in our hands but if they blew it,it will be because of those two players making mistakes.Don’t want to say anything else.Watch that space.

    People on here must be trolling. We are currently top of the league and we have been since round 13, except for round number 25 were we dropped second.

    I do not expect both Brighton and Huddersfield to last through the end of the season. The depth in the squad of Newcastle is considerably better. Brighton had to buy a Vegard Forren as backup in central defense as they are plagued with injuries. He is not even fit.

    The Fulham game might be a blessing in disguise. Hopefully we get a reaction and a positive one with some back to back wins. Suddenly Huddersfield and Brighton lose a game and things are looking very good again.

    Well if you have been to the last couple of home games and watch how good our fullbacks are then I think most people will make adverse comments about them. I said weeks ago that we need to book our hotels for Wembley and it is now looking probable, but if we meet Fulham we are stuffed so it is more important now to get automatic promotion.

    It’s academic what we had last time, the fact is we’re on top via goal difference alone and need to get our heads together and win the remaining games.
