    Newcastle v Burnley Match Preview

    Make mine a treble! Well we did the double double over the Saints and the Cherries so can we make it a hat trick of doubles by beating the Magpies? Back in December a Chris Wood header gave the Clarets a narrow 1-0 win in a very scrappy encounter at Turf Moor. Will Dyche recall Wood if fit to the starting line-up at St James’s Park? It would be hard to change the Rodriguez/Vydra partnership that has been largely instrumental in securing our latest victories. Newcastle’s main problem is clear. They are the joint lowest scorers in the League and their centre forward Joelinton has only a single PL goal to his name. They do however carry a threat through Almiron and ASM. Head to head in all competitions our record v Newcastle reads W43 D20 L43. Expect a tight game with a goalfest unlikely. COYC!

    These comments by SD suggest our own version of VAR will be continuing for the time being:

    “If you are going to play two up front they cannot operate as individuals, they have to connect,” the Burnley manager said. “I’m really pleased that Matej has come in and done well, because he’s been waiting and waiting for his chance. He’s stretched the pitch and connected well with the others. He puts in a lot of work and his finishing is sublime.”

    Agreed BT. If you're in the team and performing, you stay in the team. Especially if the team is winning!

    40 points beckons and will be reached with victory over the Toon. Apart from City and Liverpool both of whom we meet away every other game in our run-in offers realistic chances of picking up more valuable points. After the appalling run from Boxing Day until the turnaround victory over Leicester who’d have thowt it. Did our season turn on that Popeye save from Vardy and then Westy’s winner? However first things first and we need to pluck three v***l points from the Mags.

    Should we continue the current points ratio of 13 points from every five games we play until this season ends, we will undoubtedly be in the hat when the Champions League draw comes up.

    this tables so illogically erratic - just seen that 3rd placeLester were beaten by bottom of the table Norwich - it's not that the Canaries were any good, more that Lester were abysmal, even more abysmal than the regularly abysmal Norwich - so whats that to do with us aand the Magpies ?.....not much, but as they're only 4 places lower and we're not top table, if they did beat us....then at least they can't imagine themselves of Champions League standard....as how poor would that be !

    All I said Norder is, "Should we continue the current points ratio of 13 points from every five games we play until this season ends, we will undoubtedly be in the hat when the Champions League draw comes up".

    The way Leicester, Chelsea and Tottenham are currently blowing points and the imposed City ban, Burnley, Wolves and Sheffield United could all be in the hat!

    Colin W**ker in full anti-Burnley flow on Soccer Saturday then gets to be the match summariser for Newcastle v Burnley. Quelled Surprise! Hope he brings us a first victory at St James’s Park since 1976.
