Newcastle United v Fulham, 2011/2012
Jolly exciting!
Good afternoon Geordies. We’re up against Martin Jol’s Fulham at St James’ Park today as we attempt to continue our unbeaten start to the season.

Fulham have a good record against us and lead by 26 to 24 in the winning stakes and they apparently conceded fewer goals to set pieces than any other Premier League team last season, which is a shame as that’s been the best part of our game recently.

European football will no doubt have taken its toll on their players though and they’re without John Arne Riise as result of their midweek game against Dnipro.
