A Merry Christmas beckons for Newcastle United?
With two victories against Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion already under their belts, the Christmas fixtures could be a very good period for Newcastle United if they can keep up the momentum in the run up to Christmas. All of their next three opponents, Leeds, Fulham and finally, Championship side, Brentford, in the League Cup Quarter Final are all below them in the league. Can Steve Bruce take the bull by the horns, silence the doubters and make the most of this opportunity? (more…)

It continues to be a difficult season for Newcastle United at present, and they remain in the battle to stay in the top flight. At present they are around 11/4 to face the drop, which would usually be a big shock for a side as big as Newcastle United if they hadn’t already been relegated twice in the last ten years under current owner, Mike Ashley. What happens in the current January transfer window may also play a role in the prospects for the Magpies in this battle. (more…)

Rafa – Not out of the woods yet.
Newcastle United host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Sunday aiming to keep themselves clear of the relegation zone.

The Magpies have lost just one of their last six league matches to lie 14th in the table, four points above the bottom three.

However, last weekend’s 3-0 drubbing at home to West Ham United highlighted that manager Rafa Benitez still has a big job on his hands.

Newcastle were much improved at Everton in midweek, deservedly picking up a point courtesy of a 1-1 draw.

After a run of six games without a win, losing five times in that sequence, Wolves pulled off a shock 2-1 win over Chelsea on Wednesday. That result left them 12th in the table, six points ahead of Newcastle. (more…)

The Toon’s next four opponents
It’s fair to say that it hasn’t been a great start to the season for Newcastle United, but the next few weeks offer the perfect opportunity to climb the Premier League table.

The Magpies head into Saturday’s game against Leicester City 18th in the standings, having collected just two points from their opening six matches.

A victory this weekend would be a major boost, although there are reasons to believe that October and early November could be a productive period regardless of what happens against the Foxes.

Read on as we look at Newcastle’s next four opponents after the Leicester game. (more…)

Leicester vs Newcastle.
Leicester: Five wins out of six against Newcastle
Newcastle United host Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday desperately needing a victory to kick-start their season.

The Magpies have picked up just two points in six games this term, and a defeat this weekend would leave them rooted in the bottom three.

Rafa Benitez’s side have faced four of last season’s top six already this season, and they will be eager to take advantage of some potentially easier fixtures over the coming weeks. (more…)
