Hello, good afternoon and welcome to my latest ‘match banter’ feature for this afternoon’s game against Southampton.

This could be the last one for a while, if at all. I thought I’d do one last set of matchday blogs though to let all you regular readers know that I won’t be doing any more for a while at least as there are far better things I could be doing with my life right now.

Hello, good afternoon and welcome to our latest “match banter” for this afternoon’s game at St James’ Park, which sees the Magpies pitted against the Saints of Southampton.

As you may recall, our last game against Southampton at their place was something of a dire performance, with Newcastle losing 2-0 to an Adam Lallana goal in the first half, with the coup de grâce performed by Gastón Ramírez an hour into the game. Here’s hoping that things are different this afternoon.

One thing that certainly will be different is that the Saints will be rolling up at St James’ park with a new manager this time, the highly talented young Argentinian coach, Mauricio Pochettino. For those of you who might fancy a bit of light reading in the run up to this game, I have already prepared a little primer on the new man at the helm at St Mary’s, and he could be a very tricky customer indeed.
