After what seems like forever, we have a return to Premiership football this weekend, though for Everton and Newcastle fans there is one more day to wait before the Monday night fixture at Goodison Park. We spoke to the excellent SB Nation blog Coming Home Newcastle about how their season has been looking so far.
RBM - Newcastle have had a middling start to the year so far in the Premiership. The excellent win over Tottenham was tempered by the loss to Chelsea. It won't be good to fall too far back this early in the year will it?
RBM - The international break seems to have done Newcastle no favors whatsoever. With the Everton fixture being on Monday, what are the chances that Alan Pardew will have a fully-fit squad?
RBM - Speaking of Alan Pardew, are the fans still as excited about him as they were when the Magpies were surging to the upper reaches of the table last season?
RBM - How did Newcastle do in the transfer market? Is the squad deep enough now to cover the rigors of football on four fronts this season?
RBM - Looking ahead at the next few games for Newcastle, they play Manchester United twice in a fortnight, and have European games against Maritimo and Bordeaux. That should stir some excitement into the fanbase?
RBM - Finally, what do you expect to see from Newcastle at Goodison Park, and what are your score predictions?
