Game on! Newcastle v Bolton.

Will it be home comforts this time around?

It’s game on again as Newcastle host Bolton Wanderers at St James’ Park in what could be a tricky encounter against the in form Trotters.

Not only do we have the fine form of our opponents to deal with, but we also have this Saturday, 3pm kick-off hoodoo to contend with. As I pointed out in my match preview, it’s been two and a half years since Nufc last mustered a home Premier League win when the kick-off has been at 3pm on a Saturday.

Still, hopefully that will change this afternoon, and if it does it will mean that we leapfrog Bolton and climb into seventh place in the Premier League table. if you’d have told me at the start of the season that we would be seventh in the league with only ten games left I would have probably punched you in the face in some vain attempt to try and knock some sense into you!

However, here we are, and with the feel good factor that has been manufactured by the result against Birmingham and perpetuated by the announcements of new long-term contracts for Cheik Tiote and John Carver you would have to hope that we can use that momentum and gain a positive result. Mind you, this is Newcastle United and we could just as easily receive a kick in the nuts as punishment for our enthusiasm.

I’m lucky enough to be at the match so I won’t actually need a stream for once, which means that you won’t have to put up with me moaning about how I can’t get a stream to work. However, for those who do need one, if you find a good one then please feel free to leave a link to it in the comments section below.

That’s just about it really, and all that is left to say is that I hope you enjoy the match. I’m in Newcastle overnight so the team news will be supplied by Big Dave, and I will leave you in the capable hands of MarkToon and Moreno for the duration of my absence.

Howay the lads!
