So Stoke City and their rabble rousers bring their long throw-in to St James’s tomorrow. Joe Kinnear looks to field an unchanged side from the one that drew against the Smoggies which means Steven Taylor will again be warming the substitutes bench.
If we avoid a loss we go three games unbeaten and if we win, we’ll go above Stoke in the table. This is a must win game. If we can’t beat the likes of Stoke City at home, then we seriously have some problems.
According to Joe Kinnear, he invented the long throw during his stint at Wimbledon. He cited that Vinnie Jones was able to lob the ball in and they’d win the near post flick on. Aye, but howay Joe, this is Newcastle you’re talking about. We’re not exactly the crazy gang. Half of our lot would rather jump out of the way of the ball than stick their nut on it and get it clear.
Anyway, I’ll say a Toon win tomorrow: 2-0
Howay the Toon
