I think somebody has been feeding the manager duff information because while we’ve drawn a few at home against the Gunners, you have to go back eight years to find the last win for United at St.James’ Park. So we take you back to 2005 and our last win, featuring a beautiful finish by Nobby Solano for the winning goal.
Maybe more than most Cheick Tiote has suffered from not having any continuity this season and getting into a playing rhythm, the player though isn’t hiding from this season and is determined to put it right.
Reaching safety a full ninety minutes before the end of the season has meant that Newcastle United’s final match of the season isn’t critical, at least not in a relegation or Champions League (for us) spot kind of way. However, in many other ways this Arsenal fixture could have a massive impact on certainly the short and medium-term future of Newcastle United.
A lot of people are genuinely ‘disappointed’ with the manager’s performance this season but I think I’d believe ‘Arry Redknapp before any of you trying to claim that you really believe Alan Pardew doesn’t care if we get stuffed by Arsenal.
