Newcastle Have Excellent Chance To Get Back To Winning Ways

Our four-game winning streak came to an end at Goodison Park last night when we lost to the single goal of the game scored by Theo Walcott after 51 minutes.

It’s not been a lucky venue for Newcastle and Everton have now won five consecutive Premier League games against Newcastle for the first time since January 1920.

In that sequence, Everton have scored 9 goals, and Newcastle have not scored any, and the streak goes back to 28 December 2014 when we hammered Everton 3-2 at home, and Alan Pardew left the club after that game.

We should be able to beat West Brom at home on Saturday in our next game, but that could end up as a banana skin if we don’t play better than we did last night.

The last time we were beaten was also in Liverpool (2-0), and we didn’t score in that game either.

Rafa Benitez – arrives at Goodison Park last night

Rafa will not stand any lack of effort and determination to win in the final four games, and he could well shake up the Newcastle team if we cannot beat West Brom on Saturday afternoon.

This is an excellent chance for the lads to come storming back to their winning ways but West Brom have beaten Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford and drawn 2-2 with Liverpool in their last couple of games.

So it will be a much tougher game than we had expected a short few weeks ago, but we are at home and have a chance to make it five wins on the trot at St. James’ Park before we play Watford and Tottenham away.

That’s worth going for.

Howay The Lads!!

    WBA have been impressive since they gave AP the heave-ho. I absolutely believe they should give Moore the full time managers job right now. I fancy us to win it, but I don’t think they will make it easy for us.

    I traveled with an Everton fan to the game. Sat in the Home End. Multiple comments were made about how loud the Geordie Faithful were and it was evident. Great support and continued after the final whistle. Anyone among that group has my instant respect (First Time I had seen Newcastle away).

    Every Everton fan in the Home Stand was laughing at the Big Sam song and “They’re going down, we’re staying up”. Very poor game, seemed the attack didn’t link up, would attribute that to Slimani lacking gametime.

    Must say, worst stadium I have ever been too and I’ve been to multiple grounds in Ireland under 2k capacity! Wooden seats, roof blocking the high balls, cramped conditions (my knee was hitting off the guy in front of me’s back) and the most obtrusive columns keeping the stand up (we could not see one of the goals).

    I thought we were a bit sloppy last night especially the first half, totally unlike us.

    Thought the ref had a poor game, surprised Keane stayed on the pitch for them and the ref bottled a few blatant professional fouls when we were breaking on Everton.

    No big deal, no real disappointment, even though we were poor Everton only deserved a point at best.

    Slimani did ok for first start and he and Perez did better after the break, look foward to him ripping the back out the onion bag next time out.

    Had to laugh at big shams comments about our negative tactics, you couldn’t make it up..
