Newcastle United's fixtures for the final third of the 2011/2012 season.
How does the run-in look?
With two-thirds of the Premier League season now complete, this author looks at what the final third might have in store for Newcastle United.

We’re now into the home stretch – the final third of the 2011/2012 Premier League season. We have no Cup distractions so our only aim is to finish as high as possible in the league and I thought I’d take a look at the run-in and see what I think we can achieve.

I’ve take a cautious – even pessimistic – view I think. The attitude of the pessimist is often derided but I reckon if you set your expectations on the lower side of realistic there’s a greater chance you’ll be pleasantly surprised when those expectations are exceeded.

Anyway, enough of the philosophy, let’s see how the the remaining 13 games look.

February

There’s just one match left this month and that’s at home against Wolves. They’re currently without a manager but they have said they expect one to be in place by the time they play us next weekend. Alan Curbishley has apparently ruled himself out of the running and Agent Bruce is now touted as the favourite in most areas of the press. Whatever happens in terms of their manager, I expect us to pick up all three points.

So for February I have us getting: 3/3 points. (more…)


2011/2012 fixtures out – Toon up against Arsenal first

2011/2012 Premier League fixtures out.
2011/2012 fixtures out
The Premier League fixture list for the 2011/2012 season is out and Newcastle United find themselves at home to Arsenal for the first game.

It’s only June but the announcement of the fixture list somehow seems to bring the new football season a little closer.

Due to some ludicrous copyright law that was set in place by some dinosaur in 1956, you can’t reproduce a ‘substantial part’ of the fixture list without paying DataCo a few hundred pounds and a ‘substantial part’ is considered to be more that one match. And, yes, DataCo have gone after fan sites in maintaining their copyright.

We can, however, link to people who’ve paid for the fixture list, so:

Our second game’s an interesting one too!
