West Brom v Newcastle United.
A 16-0 win will put us above Chelsea!
Venue: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich.
Date: Sunday, 25th March, 2012.
Kick-Off: 4pm (Sky TV).
Referee: Chris Foy (Merseyside).

Hello Geordies, and welcome to our latest “match banter” for this afternoon’s game with West Bromwich Albion.

West Brom are eight places below us in the Premiership table in a fairly lowly fourteenth, and their home form has been erratic at best. With a victory, we will move level on points with Chelsea, though it would take a 16-0 victory to overtake them in the table, something we have failed to achieve this season so far. Even a draw would be a milestone, as it would earn Newcastle United their 1000th Premiership point.

One other factor might be that Roy Hodgson has, like Harry Redknapp before him, been strongly linked with the England manager’s job. This is well known to be the most powerful curse in human history, and has recently taken Harry Redknapp from teaching us a footballing lesson with a 5-0 thumping to Tottenham’s worst run of results since the beginning of the season. Is that old silver fox, Roy Hodgson, now linked closely enough to be under that spell? Time will tell. (more…)

Another draw in prospect?

Hello, good afternoon and welcome to NUFC ‘Blog’s “Match Banter”, with Newcastle United facing the mighty Throstles of West Bromwich. NUFC ‘Blog’s Toonsy will be at the game (and hopefully writing a match report) while I hold the fort.

Of course, both teams are recent promotees from the Championship, and there have been similarities in their respective campaigns so far. Both have been led by extremely talented individuals who, while steeped in football, have been new boys when it comes to management. While both have aquitted themselves well overall compared with the norm for promoted teams, with respectable mid table positions going into the game, there have also been times when both have been frustratingly erratic. Our previous league encounters in the Championship (1-1 and 2-2) would tend to indicate a draw, however with the Premiership form of the two sides so far, you never know. (more…)
