Hello, good evening and welcome to our “match banter” feature for this evening’s game at St James’ Park as the Magpies face the “Latics” of Wigan Athletic.

At this point I would usually try to point you in the direction of our regular “match preview” but I’m afraid I didn’t do one for this game. The ones on here always take quite a long time to prepare and after knocking them out for quite some time without fail, I’m afraid that time was just against me this time. Please let me take this opportunity to give my apologies to any of you regular readers who actually bother to read them!

Anyway on to this game. I won’t go into a long thing about how important this one is under the circumstaneces as I’m sure that nearly all of you know that it might precipitate a bit of a crisis for both the club and our Silver Supremo if we lose. Losing our fifth game in a row would be a record, and the last time we lost four on the bounce, it was in the season we were relegated. Here’s hoping it doesn’t happen as we have a very tricky set of fixtures over the holiday period including the two Manchesters and Arsenal, although the North London giants are hardly having a great time of it at the moment either, though I’m sure that most of us would be happy with merely being 19th in our current predicament. Oops! I did start going on about it after all! I will stop now. (more…)
