This is the place to be! Well that’s if you’re not at the Liberty Stadium cheering on the lads in person.
The reality is that many Newcastle fans won’t be at the ground in Swansea this afternoon and only a few thousand fortunate souls will be inside the ground cheering on United.
So for the rest of us why not sit here and chew the fat with fellow, like-minded, Newcastle fans most of whom will be watching the match at the very least? Sit back as we collectively guide ourselves through every twist and turn of our second Premier League game of the season and see where our team has improved, or hasn’t if that is to be the case, following the 2-2 draw with Southampton last weekend.
The full team news will be posted below as soon as I can get my hands on the information but please feel free to look at the comments section below as there is always somebody quicker off the mark than me!
There is an accompanying match preview that I penned yesterday which features a history of the fixture, some injury news for both sides some match stats and facts and touches on just what our team selection for today may be. You can find it by clicking here and we’ll find out just after 2pm whether or not I was right with my musings about the side.
Other than that there isn’t an awful lot left for me to write other than saying that I hope for a win, would be happy with a draw but expect for us to travel away from Swansea empty handed. Hopefully I’m going to be pleasantly surprised come the full-time whistle.
Howay the lads!
