After match week twelve, Newcastle sit at the bottom of the league table. Though our distance to safety remains at five points with Tottenham’s come from behind win against Leeds this afternoon.
Unfortunately, that was the only match to go Newcastle’s way this weekend as Norwich and Aston Villa picked up massive wins on Saturday, which also happened to be in debuts for Dean Smith and Steven Gerrard.
Newcastle, while looking renewed with the ball at their feet, were only able to pick up a point due to some untimely errors at the back. The 3-3 draw against Brentford has to go down as two points lost.
Here is a look at the league table as it stands tonight.
The work continues tomorrow with a trip to Arsenal on the docket next weekend. It’s then a quick turnaround with Norwich coming to St. James’ Park just three days later followed by Burnley to start a brutal December.
Newcastle just must pick up a couple of wins in our next three matches and then hope to scavenge some points to close out the year. Here is what is remaining before the winter window opens.
|Sat 27 Nov||Arsenal||Away||12:30pm||Lost 2-0|
|Tues 20 Nov||Norwich||Home||7:30 pm||Drew 1-1|
|Sat 4 Dec||Burnley||Home||3:00pm||Won 1-0|
|Sun 12 Dec||Leicester||Away||2:00pm||Lost 4-0|
|Thurs 16 Dec||Liverpool||Away||8:00pm||Lost 3-1|
|Sun 19 Dec||Man City||Home||2:15pm||Drew 1-1|
|Mon 27 Dec||Man United||Home||8:00pm|
|Thurs 30 Dec||Everton||Away||7:30pm|
Newcastle will likely remain without Eddie Howe for much of this week’s preparations. The head coach tested positive for Covid on the Friday before the Brentford match.
Hopefully, Howe can return in time for Arsenal on Saturday. We should find out more about Howe’s progress in the next few days.
It appears that Joelinton will take the poll as Newcastle’s best player in the Brentford match. The 25-year-old was outstanding and has a sizeable lead over Allan Saint-Maximin.

Football For All
Police cars revolving lightSoccer ball | NEW: Steve Bruce would be very keen on an interim role at Man United and believes he could help stabilise the dressing room.

If, and it’s a massive if, we were to win at Arsenal then 4pts from Howe’s first two games would be well on target.
Hayden back is a must for me.

Positivity or negativity, mmmmm???

Bruce could stabilise the Man U dressing room?
By standing on the opposite side to the subsidence.

When is negativity ever useful?

Perfectly Right. So i bow deeply to salute the charm and beauty of english women!
Well, thanks, but to be fairly honest, i expected worst. Better team spirit for sure ( and we agreed on that point from the begining ) but beside that, was some interesting offensive move, so Howe already achieved something toward the style of play he desire.
Unfortunaltly, it costed some balance, and the defensive problem are of deep concern.
But that’s the good direction, i just hope the team will keep faith in the fact the solution is here and not starting to be a bit too carefull cause of our situation of last team in the standing.

A lot of positives mate which we can build on. It was way better than we have seen in years even from the previous two bosses.

It’s our job as supporters, is it not?
It’s been almost impossible to support this club for years…so, I’m taking the opportunity to support rather than detract.
Eddie and the lads need us every step of the way right now.

I’ve just had enough of bad news and figured; ya can stay in touch with what’s going on without all ‘their’ spin.
There’s always an agenda.
Nothing good ever happens, seemingly.
It’s all nudge nudge, wink wink, what am i ‘supposed’ to think?

The media in both sides of the pond has a lot to answer for.
Amoral at best, conniving and hand in glove… Large part of ghe problem, in every part of life. Sigh!
