Two fabulous wins in succession has lifted Newcastle into 5th place in the Premier League on 14 points from our first 9 games with 3 wins, 5 draws and a single defeat at Liverpool.
Our goal difference is now 9, the 5th best in the league, and we have an interesting game at Old Trafford next Sunday, where we hope we give Manchester United a run for their money.
After the game Eddie Howe was again cool and calculated and after a goal was disallowed for Brentford early on against the run of play, Bruno scored with a great header from a Trippier cross, and we were on our way.
Howe is starting to get the very best out of his players and in particular Miggy Almiron, Joe Willock, Sean Longstaff and Jacob Murphy, who are all improving this season.
Murphy got his first goal for the club in just over a year, and the monkey is now off his back – so to speak.
The lads played intense attacking football today, and personally I was worn out just watching the way the lads were so intense and energetic all game long.
But that’s the way Howe makes them train, and they take it into each game.
We need to make it 3 wins in a row next Sunday at Old Trafford: the game has a 2:00 pm kickoff.
