The Geordie fans are usually quite confident and today 60% – three in five fans – think we can win the game at the Vitality Stadium this afternoon.
Certainly last year we played well and were 2-0 up at half-time, but then we conceded two goals in the last 10 minutes and it was two points lost.
Rafa has drilled home this week to the players how and why we didn’t win that game last season, and hopefully, the lads will be able to come away with the win this afternoon.
There are only three league games today and two tomorrow with the FA Cup quarter-finals being played this weekend.
Rafa Benitez – seems confident
Maybe we can reach the quarter-finals next year at this time?
That would be nice.
But first things first and we need a win on the south coast this afternoon.
Howay The Lads!!
