Alan Pardew buzzing after last night and dropping very heavy (but polite!) hints that he wants Ashley to give more backing.
A result like the Manchester United one can really set a team up for a run but two or three quality additions could set this team up for years.
Newcastle are good but exactly how good could they really be if they added 2 or 3 first team players to this mix?
The other part of me just wants to say, ‘shut up, ten years since we beat Manchester United and tonight we played them off the pitch’. I’ll drink to that.
Things we have learnt so far this season; Chelsea can’t have anybody sent off for any reason, Dalglish and Liverpool will defend their players no matter what they’ve done….
….and nobody is interested in Newcastle United.
Rumours circulate that Andy Carroll could make a return to St.James’ Park on loan from Liverpool as he struggles for games/goals.
Takes some imagination Mike Ashley covering the close to hundred grand a week wages anyway but would you have the ponytailed one back?
Obertan’s form has been patchy to say the least but his best form so far this season was undoubtedly up against Evra at Old Trafford.
If passed fit to play then I’d give Obertan the chance to have another go at his old team mate and get some self-belief back.
Only way to enjoy watching Newcastle United is expect the worst and anything else is a Brucie Bonus, the bloke with the chin, not the Greggs addiction.
I’d have a tenner on Rooney to notch a hat-trick rather than the boys in black n white to scrape a win.
Manchester United’s away stats are truly frightening, winning seven and drawing two, with nineteen scored and only three conceded.
Hopefully though they’ll continue on from Blackburn and United’s big players like Ba and midfield pairing Cabaye & Tiote will grab hold of the match.
Blackburn’s Christopher Samba would be a cracking buy but won’t be coming to Newcastle for two main reasons, he would want paying (on £60,000 a week currently) and he’d cost money (around £8m).
Shame as Colo playing between Samba and Steven Taylor sounds canny.
So we have a full house, a night match, Manchester United as opposition.
So what if it buys mike Ashley a few extra roulette chips, as a fan what matters to me is being part of a throbbing mass of people all United in a common cause.
I believe in karma and Richard Masters, destiny is coming your way
