You can’t base a whole season off just one result, this is a tough away game and we haven’t completely sorted the defence out yet, I wouldn’t write anything off yet.A win or even a draw and I will start to believe that the season might be better than I originally thought.
A loss of 2-0 or less and I would say that that would kill off any idea of promotion, but would mean a probably safe midfield position.
A thrashing of 4-0 or more and I will start to think 'relegation season'.
Unfortunately think the last will be true.
Do you think Alan Shearer will be there? Does he go to Newcastle’s reserve b team games? Would love his autograph.3-1 to the yellows
Holmes, Smith and Whyte with the goals.
Honeymoon over for the smoggies. Glad the crowd will be over 30k. I hear there has been a lot of tickets given away to the local schools to boost the crowd which is a great incentive and helps the local community remember Adam Johnson.
I was speaking to a family member who once drove through Newcastle and he remarked that if Newcastle were in league one they would have sold out the game by now. I thought that was unfair and reminded him that Newcastle was the capital of Tyneside and Sunderland was a middle class suburb of it who are famed for their love of rugby and the Durham Tigers.
Looking forward to the game. I had a gander at trip advisor and found a lovely chi latte vegan bistro in an enchanting area called Marley Potts, sounds very wind in the willows-esq.
Anyway I'll be wearing my favourite yellow chinos tomorrow and looking forward to giving them a bloody good thumping and fingers crossed seeing Paul Gascoigne around the ground for some light hearted horseplay.
