Awayday Blues and Reds – NUFC The Magazine


I penned my first article for The Magazine final season, concerning Newcastle United home cup semi-finals and the way a lot of an important event they’re.

Telling my children that they should get used to them beneath the brand new possession.

I discover myself writing a second article after our poor show in opposition to Chelsea on Monday night time.

I’m not going to slate Eddie Howe and the lads as I believe they’re doing a incredible job to be inside touching distance of European competitors, contemplating all of the accidents and makeshift squads.

Additionally, because it stands, not less than a minimal of two cup quarter-finals this season (in addition to the League Cup ultimate 13 months in the past). For me that’s nothing in need of a minor miracle. All of us would have taken that in November 2021 when Eddie Howe took over.

This might simply have been our first season again within the prem after one other relegation. Having mentioned that, personally I have a look at criticism on a game-by-game foundation and Monday night time simply wasn’t adequate.

After the ultimate whistle, my ideas turned to how poor our report appears to be at Stamford Bridge and in addition away at a number of the different prime groups.

Personally, I really like stat. A lot so me and my son attempt to out-do one another messaging with the higher stat.

I’m not speaking the kind of stat the nationwide media bend and warp (though the reality) to make one thing look both optimistic or adverse. We all know how they work and usually look to the negatives the place Newcastle is anxious. You simply must learn Dale
Thompson’s articles on lies, rattling lies and statistics on The Magazine, to know what lengths the nationwide media will go to, simply to place a adverse slant on all issues NUFC.

My ideas have been – we’re usually poor outcomes clever in terms of Premier League video games at Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man Metropolis and Man United.

So, are we really that dangerous?

Properly, our all-time away Premier League report in opposition to these 5 golf equipment reads: –

Performed 139 W 8 D 28 L 103

Dangerous? That report is nothing in need of legal.

Sure, these 5 golf equipment financially have had the higher hand on us not less than because the flip of the century. Sure, these 5 golf equipment have had some nice groups and gained many titles between them.

Nonetheless, all of them have had some mediocre groups in that point, like Monday night time.

Chelsea have been at finest common and we nonetheless contrived to play poorly and are available away with zero factors.

Some statistics are simply unavoidable and head scratching on the similar time.

If we’re ever going to compete with these groups, we have to begin and switch these visits into three
factors.

I consider it can come and within the not-too-distant future.

I can’t anticipate the times once we are successful at these grounds frequently sending “aal the lads & lasses” house “aal wi’ smilin’ faces”.

It most likely nonetheless gained’t cease the nationwide media placing a adverse slant on Newcastle statistics however who’d care when the one stat that issues is the notch within the W column.

Howay the Lads!
