Today’s match against Norwich could prove pivotal to our end of year run of matches.

Playing against the Mancs/Chelsea was always going to be tough but Norwich is a typical Premier League match, the kind of game that has been the making of our season so far.

Defeat today would suggest Newcastle on the slide, a point would maybe equal regaining stability, while a win would see the Toon most certainly back on track.

We all have everything crossed that Coloccini makes it onto the pitch but regardless of that we have to get Norwich on the back foot.

They are a lively team with no little skill but United have to take the game to them and get them on the back foot. If the end of match statistics say Newcastle controlled possession then I’m convinced the result will have been taken care of.

The midfield need to get on top of the opposition and from there we can control and win the match, here’s hoping.

Our suggested bets with betting partner BET365 this week are great value in Dan Gosling (scored 4 in 22 league matches for Everton plus 1 in 5 games for Newcastle) first goal at 20-1.

While with the emphasis very likely to be on goals we go for a sporting 6-1 that there will be at least 3 goals in the first half and finally a hope that the away form will continue with Newcastle running out winners after being level at half-time at 11-2.
