Poll – Newcastle Need A Win At Swansea City On Sunday

There’s nothing quite like winning games to lift the morale of supporters at any club.

So we are hoping after the huge disappointment of the summer transfer window that we can get our second win on the trot at Swansea on Sunday after we easily beat the woeful West Ham 3-0 in our last game.

Swansea are a well-drilled and decent side under talented manager Paul Clement, but they will probably be in the same position in the league as Newcastle.

It’s therefore important we try to beat these clubs.

We’d even be happy enough with a draw on Sunday in south Wales, but wins are what we need.

    How does the song go
    “Shola’s staying at home, he’s staying , Shola’s staying at home, three why ayes on the shirt ….”
    Good lad – loves the toon, putting something back.
    Expect him to join the Coaching Staff at Benton in due course.

    Shola Ameobi may have left Newcastle United more than three years ago, but his heart still remains very much on Tyneside.
    Currently plying his trade with Notts County in League Two, Ameobi trains down in the East Midlands but spends as much of his spare time as possible back in the North East, which he still considers “home”.
    In fact, the Magpies cult hero still returns to the club’s Academy in Benton for regular visits in order to coach children aged between 12 and 16 in a non-official capacity.
    A passionate Geordie, Ameobi believes that too few Academy players are breaking into the first-team set-up in England; at Newcastle, the situation is particularly bleak.

    I voted for draw but I’m a bit concerned about our preparation for this game. A lot of players away on international duty only really returning today (not sure how many Swansea have?). We are going to have to play a player returning from injury in defence plus Rafa being away ill cannot help matters. At least the game is Sunday which gives us a bit extra time to get sorted out!

    I’ll take a draw for sure…

    Someone told me that we have not had ONE player sent-off against us in the past 90 Premiership games plus yet we have had 17 sent-off in the same time.

    If so seems a bit strange if not alarming – conspiracy theory or what!!!!

    Charlie – that would be a hell of a stat if true and cover about 2.5 seasons. However off the top off my head I’m sure I can remember opposition players being sent off at SJP – I’m sure there was a game where the opposition ended up with 9 players (I can’t remember who) but I can’t remember how long ago that was? Where is Jib when you need him? 🙂

    I heard them talk about it on BBC Newcastle the other week.

    If I remember right it was 67 games in the Premier league, not sure how many we’ve had sent off but there was definitely dismissals in championship for opposition last year.

    The ref will be the same one who sent Janmaat off, last time- to be fair, Janmaat gave him little choice.
    Gone for a win, 1-5, obviously!

    Lindisfarne @5 – Now you say I think it was Stoke – I seem to remember Hugh’s face being more miserable than usual – I just can’t remember which season that was?

    Wow 2013! That’s 2.5 seasons, so around 90 matches.

    Looking forward to seeing the team playing again and hopefully a repeat performance, with the same result. Slightly worried about the Internationals but hopefully those returning from injury will boost moral.

    Should be targeting 5pts minimum form these next 3 games. Think we can get 7 starting with a win against Swans.

    In the past Swansea have given us a footballing lesson, but hopefully Rafa can reverse our fortunes.

    Should be an interesting test against a team likely to be scrapping at the wrong end of the table this season. Clement is a good coach though and has his Swansea team playing good football so it won’t be easy by any stretch of the imagination though if we’re aiming for comfortable mid-table security then we should be aiming for 3 points.
