Blackburn Rovers vs Newcastle United match banter

Blackburn vs Newcastle United.
2-1 to us so far this season.
Venue: Ewood Park, Blackburn
Date: 1st February 2012
Kick Off: 8.00pm
Referee: Phil Dowd.

Good evening Geordies and welcome to our regular “match banter” feature.

This evening sees us facing Blackburn Rovers for the fourth time this season, with the record so far being two wins to one in our favour, their one victory being in the League Cup with our two coming in the League and the FA. Cup respectively.

Despite being a troubled club with highly embittered fans, the Lancashire team come into this game on the back of two very creditable results, a 3-1 home win over our recent destroyers, Fulham, and a 1-1 away draw against Everton. So, I wouldn’t put too much store by our respective league positions. Though Blackburn are still bogged down in the relegation zone, currently they are third from bottom and making a good fist of fighting their way out, rather than languishing right at the very bottom for fairly long periods as was the case earlier in the season. On the other side of course we had an excellent start to the season, though our more recent form has been a little “hit and miss” of late. (more…)

Time to break a dismal run against Blackburn?
Good afternoon Geordies and welcome to the match banter post for Newcastle United’s visit to Ewood Park to take on Blackburn Rovers.

Blackburn have won the last 6 encounters between the two teams, so we’ll be looking to break our dismal record against the Lancashire team. We’ve only scored more than once in one of our last 18 Premier League away matches, which is a worrying statistic, but I’m optimistic today and say a pox on statistics.

Joey Barton is likely to come up against Morten Gamst Pedersen again today, who he punched in the chest during the encounter at St James’ Park in November and received a 3 match ban for his troubles. Joey holds no grudge though and said:

I apologised profusely for my behaviour and we agreed that the next time we saw each other we’d have a good laugh about it. I said ‘if you want, you can hit me back’, but he just laughed and said that’s not his way. I think he invited me for dinner. He’s a nice guy. (more…)
