Games for the Week-end 15/01

We travel up to St. James’ Park for a 14:00 Sunday kick-off

Newcastle Utd v Fulham

Wow, we’re up to 6th on 31 points, I know that’ll change over the weekend but we’re 6th!, above Liverpool and Chelsea, I wonder what odds the bookies would have given at the start of the season?
Winning against our nearest rivals, especially as it doesn’t happen too often, made Thursday evening very, very special.
I’m so pleased for Carlos Vinicius, it can’t be easy being Mitro’s understudy but hopefully scoring the winner against Chelsea will have brought him some “browny points”? Once again it was a “team” performance, every player appears to be playing for his team mates, this must be largely down to Marco, Boa and the rest of the backroom staff?, long may it continue!

Our opponents also are defying expectations this season? They’ve not really spent huge amounts, compared to the “normal” big 6, but Eddie Howe has got them playing really well. A draw against league leaders Arsenal last game, following 4 wins on the bounce shows the form we’ll be up against.
The only game this season that we were defiantly second best, was against Newcastle at home back at the beginning of October, however we were down to 10 men after Chalobah’s VAR awarded red card 8 minutes into the game, not the first and won’t be the last time “unusual” decisions go against us.
I truly believe this Sunday’s game will be a very different affair, bring it on!

Our recent record against Newcastle is quite even with 7 wins, 6 losses and 3 draws.

Current Form:
Newcastle: WWWWD
Fulham: LWWWW
