30 points at halfway is an excellent start but it will only mean something if Newcastle United can finish the job off.
Long-term injuries, Tiote & Ba off to Africa and negative transfer noises – can Alan Pardew perform a bigger miracle and match that first 30 points?
So then we can just sit back and relax watching the African Cup Of Nations, or hope Senegal & Ivory Coast get knocked out as soon as possible and the players don’t get injured or sold.
Good luck to both players…and Alan Pardew!
Enrique left because Mike Ashley didn’t share his ambitions for Newcastle.
He is a class player who I loved to watch, never gave less than 100% and was more than happy to stay and help deal with the fallout of relegation. What is there not to like and respect?
A few years ago I was told Newcastle had a brilliant goalkeeping prospect and money had been wagered on him one day playing for England.
Step forward Fraser Forster, essential that we keep both him and Tim Krul at United.
After the way the Carroll transfer played out with manager/player saying going nowhere, only for him to leave, I struggle to sleep soundly.
Cheick Tiote and his manager are saying all the right things and I believe them but what if money is put on the table?
Are Newcastle United better than last season?
United have more points and are higher up the league than this time last year but have scored fewer goals, an accident waiting to happen?
A playmaker is essential to very decent footballing Premier League team.
Yohan Cabaye is back to impose his playmaking on Boxing Day, who are your greatest ever playmakers?
Newcastle are facing the prospect of having passed up a great chance to move forward having failed to bring in an extra forward and defender in the summer.
Failing to do so in January could see things really fall apart, not just losing a few games.
Finding good players is difficult but it is essential that you keep hold of them once they are at St.James’ Park.
Keep your best players and add to them, isn’t football that simple?
