Newcastle are playing their most important game of the season (so far) today at St. James’ Park against Southampton.
The Saints are one place and one point below us in the league table and a win would take us well clear of the drop zone and 4 points above Southampton.
But we’re sure Southampton will make it difficult for Newcastle today but we must get 3 points before the long three-week break we have coming up.
As we’ve said before if we don’t win then that three-week break will seem an awful lot longer than just 21 days.
Newcastle fans at St. James’ Park
Howay The Lads!!
Here are some typical tweets from Geordie fans.

2 teams absolutely petrified to lose will mean a 1-1 draw where neither really goes for the win… #NUFC

I’m confident Lascelles will have everyone ready. A quick goal would be amazing – especially since we always level off. #nufc

Big game today but more for them than us i think? If we do them i generally think they’re down #nufc lets hope we can get it done?

Got every confidence in #NUFC today… if we get this right then there’s a little bit of breathing space between us and the bottom 3. I want us to stay up, and Sunderland to drop through the divisions before dissolving like a footballing Alka Selzer.
Not much to ask aye…? ?
