Can Newcastle Extend Unbeaten Run To 5 Wins In 7 Games?



The last time we were beaten in the league was that shock 1-0 loss at Blackburn Rovers on Monday January 2nd, when we missed so many chances in  the first half, it was almost criminal.

We lost pitifully since that game at Oxford United 3-0, in what was an embarrassing defeat and very poor second half display, essentially from a second eleven.

But since the Blackburn defeat we have four wins and two draws for 14 points  in our last six league games – a decent 14 points.

Steve Bruce – Aston Villa manager

If we can maintain that average per game (2.33) over the last 15 games of the season we’ll get another 35 points and finish the season on 101 points since we are currently on 66 points.

That would be good.

🙂

But first things first and we must beat Aston Villa on Monday night in front of a sell-out crowd of over 52,000.

Howay The Lads!!

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Aston Villa?

    Hop you don’t mind but I thought I’d just copy and paste your comment with a slight alteration.

    Fortunately it will be colback partnering Shelvey in the middle on Monday. Hopefully Atsu gets a start and Ritchie avoids a yellow.

    Mr Tuff

    Sorry to seem a bit thick but does that mean no extra time either?

    Also what Channel is the Netball on?

    For me support of NUFC has always been linked with love of the region and it’s great history , the Geordies contribution to making the world a better place , railways , great ships , steam turbines , electric light , the unions , all linked by the humour of the region from Geordie Ridley to the Little Waster.

    The visit to SJP was a routine event without any expectations.

    True , our Dads and Uncles told us about the great cup winning sides of the early fifties and we could hope, but our support was unconditional – such victories weren’t essential.

    Then when I was a bairn getting in for ten bob we had a run in the Inter City Fairs cup !!!!

    WOW

    I actually saw Giacinto Fachetti and Sandro Mazzola playing for Inter in the flesh at Newcastle after seeing them on TV playing for Italy in the world cup final v Brazil in Mexico !!!!

    We won that trophy !!!!

    and then it was back to normality – but – and that’s my point I guess – my love and passion fot the club never flagged or wavered

    I suppose for me the concept that there were footy fans that existed who were different from me in their support of NUFC was the arrival of SJH and KK.

    Waiting lists for season tickets !!!

    Blooming Heck

    I can never be like them – “I’m only going to come and watch if you win”

    My first season ticket cost £163 (a strange amount) and was purchased at the start of Willy McFaul’s tenure.

    I used to go and in the hopes of seing a good game, and was occassionally rewarded.

    To “Plastic Fans” the concept that their team got beat but they saw a bloody good game is alien – those low-lifes slagging off Arsene Wenger are anathema to good sportsmanship and miss the point completely
