Referee: Peter Walton.

Dear readers, for any of you who were expecting some kind of “normal” match preview for this Boxing Day away game against Bolton, I am writing this after a fairly messy Christmas Eve Party followed by two nights of very little sleep (none at all last night) and a couple of days full of Champagne overconsumption, hence an in depth analysis of the Trotters’ own kind of “Champagne” football isn’t really on my agenda at the moment. However you may get a bit of team news, a bit of history between the two sides and some opiniated waffle this time if you’re lucky.

Stats, previous matches etc…

The two sides come into this game with Newcastle United standing at seventh in the Premiership, with Bolton standing at second bottom. However the two sides do have roughly similar records as Newcastle’s terrific start to this season has somewhat inevitably crumbled into ashes. (more…)

The FA Cup schedule meant we skipped a match last weekend, but we’re back to the nitty-gritty of a match day this weekend with a challenging game at home against Bolton Wanderers.

Bolton are one point and one place above us in the Premier League and they gave us a good seeing to back in November at their place, beating us 5-1 and seeing Colo sent off to boot.

History is on our side for this fixture though as we’ve only lost once at home to Bolton in the Premier League, having won seven and drawn two. Furthermore, whilst Bolton have been very strong at home, having only lost two, they’ve been weak away, having only won two. (more…)
