Ahead of the Manchester City match the manager is quite rightly trying to gee the troops up and give them some positive thinking BUT there is a fine divide between positive thinking and talking rubbish.
“We’re having a rough run but I think the work ethic is there and one big result, which could happen this weekend, could change a lot of the picture and we might find ourselves in a good position in the league”.
I think the work ethic is definitely there, especially in the recent matches with Stoke, Wigan and Fulham, can’t disagree there.
A win against Manchester City would undoubtedly be a big result, especially with QPR at home to follow.
However, I have to take issue with, “…find ourselves in a good position in the league”!!!
Newcastle would probably have to win by three or four to even stand a chance of going up one place in the Premier League as Fulham are three points clear. Even that would still leave us in no-man’s land and a maximum of five points above the relegation zone.
I’m all for talking about a big win to use as a springboard but don’t take us for fools.
