What Will Be The Result Of Saturday’s Match Against Watford?


Newcastle are back to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon as they face winless Watford at St James Park. A win could see the team climb up the standings as currently, only 1 point separates 19th place Newcastle and 4th place Manchester United.

This is a big one for Steve Bruce who will want some positivity going into next week’s international break. Six points from his first four matches would be considered a good start. Especially considering that we lost the first two matches.

Steve Bruce – more scenes like this on Saturday

There is every reason to believe the lads can put in a third good performance in a row. We would expect Bruce to use the same formation he used at Tottenham and in the mid-week cup loss to Leicester City.

However, they must keep focused and disciplined. Watford manager Javi Garcia is under a lot of pressure having lost his last six Premier League matches going to the end of last season.

It doesn’t get any easier for The Hornets as after the break they are at home to Arsenal and away to Champions Manchester City. They will be looking to snap their losing streak at St James Park on Saturday.

    Jail,

    You and OP were dead wrong with your less than 15,000 crowd prediction for the Leicester game.

    And here’s me thinking the pair of you were infallible.

    Well, that’s what you’d have us believe.

    I didn’t though,

    And said the crowd would be way above that.

    22,000.

    The neggers lose again.

    You both must have been right brassed off that more turned up to support the team than you predicted,

    Sad, very sad.

    HWTL.

    Bills Son is Back,
    You really are a petty bitter old man, is that all you’ve got to say, a win was just what the team needed and brought an interest in the game midweek, of course it would,
    ”An upsurge in ticket sales meant that the crowd exceeded the 20,577 here for the visit of Spurs in August 2008 – the smallest SJP League Cup crowd at SJP in the Premier League era”

    Do you think if it wasn’t for the lies, deceit and downright lack of ambition that there wouldn’t be 35K at least in there at a fiver and tenner a go.

    jib, I’m not yet anti-Bruce, but neither am I yet pro-Bruce. I’m anti the manner of his appointment and I’m anti the treatment of his predecessor over the last three years which led him to decide his future lay elsewhere, but I’m prepared to give Bruce the benefit of the doubt and support him until he shows me reason to not do so.

    I’m not convinced he’s the right man for the job, but I hope he proves me wrong. So far, the injury list is greatly elevated from last season and in the match vs Arsenal there were a couple of episodes which gave us cause for concern, notably the way that Jetro Willems was introduced.

    On the positive side, he seems to have the lads playing for him, he got his tactics spot-on vs Spurs and the result and performance against Leicester was encouraging, leaving the penalties aside.

    I think we’re all going to sit in judgement on Bruce, but we haven’t yet finished hearing the evidence and therefore we sit with an open mind.

    No harm in discussion of a worrying trend for the club, therefore, and speculating on what may be causing it. I hope and expect that Bruce himself is having thoughts of a similar nature. I hope but don’t expect that if he thinks it could be improved by some investment in our facilities that the club will back him on that.

    Bills Son is Back,
    There was only 2K more than our lowest ever PL league cup tie and tickets weren’t a fiver and tenner back then and it was 5K down from the same tie last year, this is despite it being against PL opposition and the club signing a 40M player. And you think that’s something to crow about.
