The lads have come back from their three-month break and have hit the ground running.
Four points from two games should have been 6 points, but we’ll take the 4 points, and we are now 12 points above the drop zone with 7 games to play.
We also have the 4th round of the FA Cup at home to Manchester City tomorrow night, so things have gone from nothing to full steam ahead as far as playing games is concerned.
Project Restart so far has been successful as long as we can keep the coronavirus infections down.
The league is due to end four weeks tomorrow, and Liverpool are the Champions of the Premier League for the first time in their history.
Hopefully, if Newcastle are acquired by the Amanda Staveley consortium, we can start making some inroads to become regularly part of the top six in the Premier League.
Here’s where we stand at the moment – still in 13th place despite those 4 points in the previous two games:
Steve Bruce (shown above) seems very pleased with the way things are going as he had this today yesterday in his press conference:
What we have done in the last six or seven games has enabled us to be a bit more of a threat going forward.”
“Touch wood, defensively we have been rock solid, long may it continue.”
“It is important that we don’t think we have achieved something, and we don’t down tools.”
“We have put a decent little run together after lockdown and to get four points from six, which might have been six from six, had it not been a rare defensive lapse.”
“Overall, I’ve been very pleased with the way we are.
“We have one or two knocks, and we have to see how we are, on the quiet we have done OK.”
And here are the upcoming fixtures starting with with our tough FA Cup quarter-final tie at home tomorrow.
