Newcastle have just done something they’ve failed to do since 2012..

After failing to get a single point in our last 11 attempts, last night’s win against Burnley was the first time in SIX years we have won a game on a Monday night in the Premier League.

Our last win came against Wigan way back in 2012, with two from Demba Ba and a stunner from Gael Bigirimana (remember him!?) giving us a 3-0 win at St James’ Park.

What made this stat even worse was the fact we’d failed to score in 8 of the last 11 games on a Monday night, failing to get a point in any prior to last night’s deserved victory at Turf Moor.

After Ritchie’s managed to put it wide from an open goal and Joselu’s one on one miss, I feared that the hoodoo would strike again as Burnley pressured us late on – but it wasn’t to be this time, and rightfully so in a game we dominated.



So, thankfully that monkey is off our back thanks to the win last night, allowing us to look at our next Monday night game with a bit of added confidence!

One thought on “Newcastle have just done something they’ve failed to do since 2012..

  1. Got to bear in mind at least half of those games occurred while we had the Grey Haired Numpty in charge and/or his sidekick (the best coach in the PL) Carvwho ?
