We play West Ham at home tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 pm and Geordie fans will be hoping we can get our first win of the season after starting off the season with three successive defeats.
West Ham has also lost their first two league games, so we will have a chance to take all 3 points.
But since the two-week International break is starting after this weekend another defeat would be tough to take, and it will likely be a solemn two weeks for some of us if we do lose again.
But Rafa has a way of working out how to win games, and the Spanish manager will be under pressure to deliver our first win which would cool the situation and give us 3 points from our first three games – fairly respectable.

It could also be that Florian Lejeune is fit to play and we’ll know more about that in Rafa’s press conference this afternoon.
