It was four years ago that we managed to win four league games in a row in November of 2013 – just four weeks before Alan Pardew surprisingly left the club for Crystal Palace.
In the following 18 months, we had John Carver and then Steve McClaren in charge and were relegated.
Here;s the league record of those two managers – who should never have been appointed by Lee Charnley.
34 points from 43 Premier League games.
But now we have had Rafa Benitez in charge for the last 18 months, and after getting us promoted as Championship Champions in May, we are now 4th top of the Premier League.
Incredible work by Rafa.
Chris Hughton – Brighton and former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton
It would be great if we can win at the Amex Stadium on Sunday afternoon and remain 4th top in a game that is being televised live around the world as the only PL game of the day.
