What is your tipping point? I think mine was the Stoke match, before that I wondered just how much luck had played a part but after beating those idiots at the Britannia I seriously don’t think anybody can say that it only down to that four letter word.

It would be quite another thing to start mouthing off about being Champions League certs and all the rest but we can stand here and say this team has got a definite something. We just don’t know how much they have got of it!

Maybe some people are more easily pleased and were confident after Raylor’s slightly fortunate free-kick against the mackems?

Everybody has done to death the fact that we have a trio of matches coming up that look a bit tough, I’d prefer to look at taking it up until Christmas and if the Toon are still top six then Alan Pardew can definitely take a bow.
