Newcastle United fans here in the bar at the Football Transfer Tavern are still considering what could have been following their first two games back in the Premier League ending in defeat.
Jonjo Shelvey’s red card seemed to condemn the Magpies to a 2-0 loss Tottenham Hotspur and a lackluster performance in their second game saw the Magpies go down to fellow new boys, Huddersfield Town.
These results paired with the lack of activity in the transfer window has started to worry the Newcastle fans in the Tavern, however, our landlord believes that a manager with the pedigree of Rafa Benitez will not allow his club to be relegated, and has tipped his Geordie punters that they will see a quick turn around from their club.
The Magpies in the Tavern are still not confident and they would like to see some areas strengthened before the game against West Ham in what is also a massive game for the Hammers following the fact that they too have lost both of their opening fixtures this season.
In what is almost a must win side for both sides, our lamdlord has outlined the XI that Benitez must use to get a win this weeekend.
