15 Points From Newcastle United December Fixtures Is Possible

10 years ago

The Newcastle United December fixtures threw up a mixed bag for Alan Pardew and his players.

I saw one article on this website before Swansea, saying they believed that 10 points form 18 in December would keep Newcastle moving forward but…

I think most fans would have settled for two draws form Swansea and Man U but in reality expected/hoped for a point from the trip to Wales and a narrow defeat at Old Trafford.

So surely it must be time to reassess our sights and target (not take for granted) the remaining four matches this month.

Alan Pardew gave us his take on this subject after winning at Manchester United;

“The players have proved to me that there is a real determination to have a great season.

“We have set ourselves up for a great Christmas programme and let’s hope we can follow it through.”

So with 3 points from 6 so far, how many should we expect from the other four games?

Newcastle’s December programme continues with Southampton (H), Palace (A), Stoke (H), Arsenal (H).

I think the first three matches have to be attacked all gins blazing and a minimum of 7 points expected, though all 9 is a possibility. That would give us 10 or 13 points with Arsenal still to play.

My take on it is that Newcastle are more than capable of putting 7 points in the bank making it 10 from 15 and then we can have a real go at Arsenal in front of a packed St.James’ Park to round off the year.

Go to it boys.
