30.12.2017… Brighton (h)…

Newcastle United 0 Brighton & HA 0

St. James’ Park… Saturday December 30th… 3pm

Attendance: 52,209

Ticket: £41 – Programme: £3

Well, we didn’t lose…

An awful game, played out by a side that looked tired and low in confidence, in front of a crowd that appeared to be in a similar predicament…

Let’s just get the Stoke game out of the way, and hope that Rafa is backed to bring in the reinforcements that he requires, even though history would suggest that he won’t. Either way, January 2018 is going to be a massive month for Newcastle United, one that could have long lasting repercussions…

St. Andrew’s… December 17th… 5.30pm

Attendance: 17,287

Ticket: £30 – Programme: £3

With only 1,800 available, I never realistically expected that there were ever going to be any tickets available for Burton, so another trip to St. Andrew’s to cast an eye over our main rivals….

Gianfranco Zola’s first game in charge ending in a late and undeserved defeat for Birmingham. Brighton playing poorly but winning. They’re going to push us hard…
