Newcastle fans here in the Tavern still feel impressed with the start made, but gain a sense of disappointment after throwing away winning positions.
Newcastle United have been in the news an awful lot lately, with the club being up for sale and the possible transfer budget that could yet to become a reality. But one thing that hasn’t made headlines as much as it probably should is the start that they’ve made to the season. Currently sitting in 7th position in the League table, it looks as if Benitez has got the team fine-tuned and ready to play as they now go on a run of 3 games unbeaten.
Benitez has always been one of the best managers in world football, always knowing how to resolve a situation and having the know-how of a title-winning remedy. Similar to when he resurrected the fightback in Istanbul to bring Liverpool Europen glory, he has resurrected fresh hope and ambition for the Toon Army as they dream of European football for themselves.
However, in what is already a promising position for the Tyneside club, there is still plenty of improvements to be made as certain factors have caused for results to somewhat switch against his side after impressive performances. For any team to stay in the Premier League and succeed, one thing that becomes a must is the consistency and importance of taking chances. Because against the best teams in England, you don’t get many opportunities to punish them, so when one comes about you’d be stupid to waste it.
Next up for the Tyneside club is the high flying Burnley who can leapfrog Newcastle with a win at Turf Moor. For a side that have already caused an upset against Chelsea, and draws against Liverpool and Tottenham, it looks as if this is going to be a tough old game for Benitez and his side as they’ve only lost the 1 game at home all season.
So here’s a look at how Benitez can fix any underlying problems ahead of the clash with Burnley…
