Can Newcastle Beat West Ham Tomorrow For Our First Win?

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.

    Wow, it’s currently 2:15am in North Carolina and yet Ed has his bus fired up and running at light-speed!

    “Jib, is there anything you don’t know” ha ha ha, the gaff man himself. If it’s not on wikipedia he just makes it up!

    We could end up shifting lazaar and maybe the keeper and getting nobody in. Frightening thought. Hopefully kenedy but we never got the striker we needed. Rafa has hardly helped himself though, with plenty of outright fails in the transfer market. Mikey can’t have been impressed but we know all he wants are under 23 starlets who can be polished up and sold on.

    In fairness to Jib, he was trying to supply information that he gathered and might be worthy to discuss or look at.Why would you trying to take him down when he is behaving like good? I found Jib’s supply worth full than Lochinvar’s guffs.

    Rafa saying that the players he is after haven’t been mentioned in the media yet got me musing
    Jorginho the Brazilian/Italian midfielder who plays for Napoli was signed by Benitez originally.

    He had a good start but found Rafa’s favoured 4-2-3-1 hard to get his head round.

    He has come back into favour with Rafa’s successor at Napoli , Maurizio Sarri.

    One interesting fact is , his contract is owned jointly by Napoli and Hellas Verona (his previous club)

    As I say , just musing , ahead of next weeks transfer window mayhem.

    Why did Rafa leave Napoli? He won a cup for them didn’t he?
