Newcastle United v Chelsea.
Will Pardew give Mourinho a good slap?
Venue: St James’ Park, Newcastle.
Date: Sat 2nd Nov, 2013.
Kick off: 12.45pm.
Referee: Lee Mason.
UK TV: BT Sport.

Of course, the Chelsea Pensioners will be huge favourites for this one, just as the Manchester Citizens were in Wednesday evening’s League Cup clash. However the Magpies weren’t too shabby at all in that one for the first hour or so and held the Citizens to a 0-0 draw at the final whistle, finally succumbing in extra time. There’s no extra time today so will the Magpies be able to keep a clean sheet against moneybags Chelsea this time?

Meanwhile off the pitch, there has been talk of another protest, this time at Mike Ashley’s banning of the biggest local media house from the St James’ Park media facilities. After that, they also banned fans organisation the Newcastle United Supporters Trust from the club’s “Fan Forum.” This was allegedly for having the cheek to take their own minutes of the meeting, though we all know, it that it was really for their involvement the recent march before the Liverpool gane back on the 19th October. Fans have been urged to take one of NCJ media’s local titles, The Chronic, the Journal or the Sunday Stun to the game and wave it at Ashley and his acolytes in the director’s box just before the kick off.

Hello Geordies and welcome to our match banter feature for today’s early home fixture against Chelsea.

Even with home advantage, we have to go back to May 2006 for our last victory against Chelsea in the Premiership, with Titus Blunder scoring the winning goal in a 1-0 victory at St James’. However, with Chelsea’s relatively poor form recently as they attempt to settle under recently appointed manager Andre Villas Boas, now is almost certainly the best time in a long while to finally squeeze 3 points out of Chelsea’s pensioners.

Although they are only one place below us in fifth, they have lost no fewer than three of their last four games in all competitions, two of those defeats coming against Liverpool in the Premiership and the League Cup, with the other coming in the Champion’s League against Bayer Leverkusen. In the Premiership alone, they have lost four games out of thirteen so far, whereas we of vourse have lost only one, against moneybags Man City. But anyway, for a far more in depth preview of today’s match, please check out the thoroughly excellent and extensive match preview from our latest star signing, Andy Mac. (more…)
