It’s very early days but the lads have gotten off to a dream start with an away win at the London Stadium marking the first time Newcastle have won their first match since 2012.
There were some terrific performances throughout the team. In fact, no Magpie had a bad outing. Our three new lads really looked the part with Callum Wilson and Jeff Hendrick opening their accounts on their debuts.
There’s not much rest to be had before Bruce and the boys go again. On Tuesday evening, Blackburn come to town for the second round of the Carabao Cup. Bruce has made a point to prioritize the cups so we expect him to name a rotated but very strong side.
However, Newcastle have started the season with a great win and that was a theme from some of the lads who took to social media after the game to express their joy with the excellent start to this season.
