Newcastle United Hoping To Make It 276th Time Lucky

8 years ago

When Newcastle United line up against Southampton on Sunday, they will be looking to get rid of a quite shocking statistic.

Yes, since Demba Ba made a clever run and Yohan Cabaye’s flag-kick found his head back in October 2011, Newcastle have failed to score from a corner kick in the Premier League.

In some sixteen months they’ve failed to achieve something that is common place for many other teams, something that surely should be a priority on the training pitch and equate to X number of goals per season.

Not for Newcastle United.

After that Demba header away at Wolves, United had another 141 corners that season and failed to score again.

This season we’ve seen Newcastle take another 134 Premier League corners and yet again fail to trouble the scorers.

Maybe our new signings can also help correct this glaring black mark on Newcastle’s form book, bring new ideas and movement to add what could be crucial goals in the short and longer term.

When you see the likes of not so tall Evra regularly scoring from Manchester United corners, you definitely know it is a case of must do better at St.James’ Park.
