Opposition View – Newcastle United Are A Massive Club

With their famous win at Huddersfield on Saturday Burton Albion have move up to 19th (6th bottom) place in the league table and 4 points above safety and very a good chance of staying in the Championship for next season, which would be great for the club and their fans.

Albion have a very good manager in Nigel Cough and they gave us everything we could handle in the away game when we narrowly won 2-1 on 17th December – so this team will not be taken lightly.

This could be the last season Newcastle are in the Championship – we hope it’s the last season Newcastle are in the Championship.


Burton captain John Mousinho

So the Burton players will not get the chance next season (hopefully) to play against Newcastle – at least not in the Championship.

Their captain John Mousinho has been speaking on the club’s web-site before the game and John says the players are really looking forward to the experience of playing at the famous St. James’ Park.

This is some of what Mousinho has said:

“These challenges are brilliant for everyone and last season we worked so hard to get promoted and that was the reason we came into pre-season this year and worked our socks off to get fit.”

“It’s a long grueling season but these are the games we embrace and the lads will really enjoy going to Newcastle and testing themselves against a massive club.”

“We are playing some fantastic players and everyone in our dressing room will relish it.”

    I’ve been cring my eyes out like most others about silly mistakes and poor performances ! it’s very easy to lose sight of reality when your emotionally attached !
    just looked in depth at the table (33 goals conceeded joint top best defence by a fair bit) and (72 goals for ! again by far the best goals scored in this league)

    opens your eyes really doesnt it.

    Anyone know why the terminology is different on nufc loan watch site
    There are a few players with seasons end and some with season long loan next to their names, i cant decide if we are intending to bring the players back who are on aseason long loan” and assess the others who are on a “seasons end” loan.
    Im just curious to see if any of our fonts of knowledge can advise?
    Thanks in advance for any light shed

    Should’ve played Doumbia more last season. His record is great for Basle. 12 goals in 14.

    Croftus, the GD does testify to our superiority in this league, but the points gained does not quite reflect this statistic. I would say we are about 6 points short of where we could / should be, and that would make us practically home and hosed by now. In the balance of the ups and downs and the unexpected / unearned results, I think we have come up a bit short, and there’s no doubt where the underperformance has been – St James Park. Maybe the home crowd are just going to have to get used to the safety first style – and it might even be the best percentage play in the Premier. Let’s hope we run through the last seven games without any more hiccups. That’s all that matters for now.
