Newcastle have come into a bit of form of late, and in our last four league games, we have taken a good 7 points, and that was after taking only a single point in the previous nine league games.
Add to that we have beaten Luton Town to progress to the 4th round of the FA Cup, and things may be looking up at Newcastle.
We hope things are looking up at Newcastle.
Carlos Carvalhal and Rafa Benitez – last season
But Saturday is a really important game – one we have to go all out to try to win.
We are at home to Swansea City who are on 16 points and bottom of the league, and if we can win the game, we will be 9 points ahead of the Welsh side.
And it would be our third double of the season, even though we will have still won only 7 league games.
It’s a crucial game – we need the win and Rafa has had all week to prepare his side and go up against their new manager Carlos Carvalhal.
Carlos was recently sacked by Sheffield Wednesday, but he did the double over Newcastle last season – 1-0 at St. James’ Park and 2-1 at Hillsborough.
Rafa will want to win this game, and there will be another sold-out crowd cheering on the lads, and hopefully, by Saturday night we will be 3 points closer to our minimum target of 40 points this season.
Howay The Lads!!
