Newcastle got back to winning ways on Tuesday, thanks to an fairly routine EFL Cup win against last Saturday’s opponents Wolves.
So after one team gets tonked 0-4 at home, and the other records an earth-shattering 6-0 win away, was there anything more inevitable than Wolves turning over a lacklustre Newcastle side this Saturday? Of course there wasn’t, this is us we’re talking about.
So, after a spluttering start and then some steady form, Newcastle United finally decided that the Championship is actually a complete walk in the park… a mere 7 games into the season.
With a pretty daunting month of fixtures ahead of them, Newcastle United got off to the best possible start with a convincing win and another clean sheet on Saturday night. Making the trip to Derby County’s iPro stadium, Rafa Benitez’s men made it 5 consecutive wins in all competition with 2-0 victory.
We’re calling it; Newcastle United are officially on a hotstreak. Following wins in both league and cup, the Magpies extended their winning run to 4 games with victory over Chris Hughton’s Brighton.
Yes, we’re in the Championship, and yes, we drew a racecourse in the second round of the League Cup, but Newcastle United have now won 3 games on the bounce. And that’s always lovely.
Wins for Newcastle United are just like buses. Not so much in that you wait for ages and two come along at once, but that they’re slow, lumbering, and aren’t usually that enjoyable.
