It’s the two-week International break which are usually boring with not much news about the clubs.
Unfortunately in the four games played since the last International break we have collected just one point – a draw at Crystal Palace.
What could have been an excellent result at Old Trafford was denied by three Manchester United goals in the final 20 minutes with the winner coming in stoppage time.
Rafa Benitez – Newcastle manager
Even a 2-2 draw would have been a good result we were not expecting.
But it was another defeat, the 6th in eight league games so far this season.
Wins can quickly take us away from the relegation zone, being so early in the season.
Currently, we are second bottom of the league
Four more league games will start on 20th October when this International break is finally over.
We must start to pick up some wins and be out of the bottom three and higher up the table before the next International break on 24th November.
Here are the next four games for Newcastle.
Date Fixture KO time Sat 20 Oct Newcastle vs Brighton 3:00pm Sat 27 Oct Southampton vs Newcastle 3:00pm Sat 03 Nov Newcastle vs Watford 3:00pm Sat 10 Nov Newcastle vs Bournemouth 3:00pm
Four wins would be nice – and that’s not impossible.
