Newcastle Need To Get Back To Winning Ways At Leicester City

With the shock of actually losing a massive game at home on Saturday against Crystal Palace Newcastle will now try to get back to winning ways at the King Power Stadium on Friday night.

But we haven’t been too good away from home this season and our last away win in the Premier League was way back on December 15th when we hammered Huddersfield 1-0 at the John Smith’s Stadium.

And Leicester City seem to have been rejuvenated since former Liverpool, and Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers joined them in late February.

The Foxes are currently in 7th place in the league on 47 points – 12 points more than Newcastle and 14 points behind 6th placed Manchester United.

We need to quickly get back to our winning ways.

    Fancy meeting up in the Howling hops on Friday night, the games on down the road in Madigans but you can’t beat the beer in a micro brewery.

    I see some other websites are saying Rafa should drop Almiron because of a loss of form. Am I missing something? Was he not MOTM against Palace by some way on the voting on this website?

    The time has surely come to put Dummett back to left back and Almiron to no 10 ?

    Put Atsu left wing knowing he has solid backup and then get Richie or Muto on the right side protecting Yedlin

    Need to match them up in midfield as if we play 3 at the back without Lejuene it will just be Lascalles and Dummett hoofing it to no one

    Some people probably want Almiron dropped because he has Hollywood dribbling skills. There’s no place for Hollywood passers or the likes of Ben Arfa with his Hollywood goals and assists. We should just have 11 honest grafters who run about loads. I think these people’s way of thinking has been Pardewed.

    I’m not sure what Almirons pass accuracy is but nearly every pass he completes seems to find someone, if the rest of the team could get anywhere near his level of pass completion it would go a long way to improving us, I’m not sure if you can coach a grown man to pass a ten yarder any better. As Bobbybee has pointed out many times those short passes that go astray not only give up possession but nip any type of attacking move immediately in the bud. Better passing comes with better quality players and that means money.

    The next Mike Williamson,
    Do you think people were glad to see the back of HBA because of his occasional excellent skill or his stinking rotten attitude.

    According to who scored.com Almiron has roughly the same pass rate as Perez, I find that hard to believe.

    I’m not a Perez hater or a big fan, I think he’s one of the worst culprits for giving away easy passes.

    Ki passing is underrated as he passes very well going forward to keeping possession. When he signed there was a this article, showed how the pass success in the final third for his and our midfielders. There was a big difference.

    But yeah we tend to be at our most vulnerable when we have the ball hence why last two years we play better with less possession.

    People wont like this but id be happy if rafa does what he did beginning of season and play defensive for draws the last 5 games. 11 men behind ball. We need 5 points and will be safe then. Cant wait for season to end and look forward to exciting transfer window in the football world theres gona be lots of transfers and managerial go arounds reading all the rumours

    Ppl need to understand we are not the same without longstaff and lejeune we are really crap. Longstaff gave us such balance in midfield with hayden which we have lost. Rondon has no pace. Ritchie cant cross always floats in air or near keeper. Maybe 1 good cross out of 50 which isnt good enough. Need to upgrade with pace all over next season.

    I’m wondering if the players are feeling like i am right now, the whole club is holding its breath waiting for rafa to sign or unbelievably leave due to fatty letting the whole club down yet again.

    We desperately need a win to put us safe.

    If rafa goes this all falls apart. I genuinely think ashley will let his contract run down and replace him with a yes man. The idiot won’t change. Greed first.

    Its like watching a slow death.

    Ashley needs to sell the club. I just dont see anything changing or anything positive happening until he does. Just more lies.

    The worst thing is the false hope that he could easily allow the club to blossom under rafa….but wont.

    It seems like an eternity that everything seemed rosy, when it’s actually only a few weeks. We seemed to be in the ascendancy and Rafa was making all the right noises. Then, what has to have been leaked by the club via Luke Edward’s in The Telegraph, we hear that Rafa signing is almost a done deal. Of course journos are going to ask him, what’s he supposed to do, tell a pack of lies to cover whoever’s give that story to Luke Edward’s. What purpose did it serve writing a pack of lies, it’s just a constant litany of own goals at a club that should be so stable.

    Btw I’m basing that post on the assumption LE was given that story, if he’s just blatantly made it up then how can he be trusted again at the club, he’s one of the more reliable and no fan of Ashley so I believe he’s been given the story by someone high up in the club.
