Things are not looking too good in this January transfer window, but we did register a fabulous 3-0 win at home against Cardiff City last Saturday to help raise the morale of Newcastle fans and get us out of the bottom three.
Another win on Saturday – which would be our third win in a row – is just what the doctor ordered.
It will take us into the 5th round of the FA Cup for the first time in a long time and add some excitement for our (very) long-suffering fans.
That’s in addition to the anxiety fans are going through again this season with possible relegation hanging over us.
Newcastle fans – want a Cup run
Currently, we are in 4th bottom place and 2 points above the drop zone.
Rafa should be able to field a strong side on Saturday but we have Manchester City at home on Tuesday night and then Tottenham away the following Saturday.
But we have seen at Blackburn in the replay and 4-2 win that some of our fringe players can play well when given the chance.
It would be great if Newcastle can win on Saturday!
