Our Newcastle fans here in the Transfer Tavern cannot wait for the weekend to arrive as they look forward to their clash with Birmingham.
Had things turned out differently with Gary Rowett staying with the Blues, this could have been a promotion clash but instead it looks a very winnable game for the Magpies down at St. Andrew’s.
Indeed, their away form suggests that three points really is more than possible with big wins at the likes of Brighton and Huddersfield not too long ago in the season.
And, if they notch up another big away win, the club will be looking at a record of 14 away wins in a season – as per playmakerstats on Twitter:
Very impressive indeed, then, and we can’t help but feel here in the Transfer Tavern that had Newcastle performed better at home this season the title would be all but theirs right now.
