In any case, nothing will take away from the joy that comes from a 1-0 victory over a top side. The Magpies are in excellent form, to say the least, and the fact that they were able to get this result as News of the World was spreading nasty rumors about a "cocaine orgy" at skipper Kevin Nolan's house makes it even sweeter. RKW will post a proper review in due time, so for now, let's all take joy in the following two facts:
(1) Midweek games are finally here! We play Blackburn on Wednesday, and there's no better time to play three games in a week than at a time when the team is playing well together.
(2) Newcastle stands alone at #5. It seems like every week I read previews from other team sites that take every opportunity to call this team "newly promoted," which, while technically true, does not tell the whole story. This is not a fresh new team that is intimidated by the Premiership. Take notice: As of this moment, Newcastle is a Top 5 side. We may not stay there, but 17 points in 11 games sounds good to me. Enough sermonizing; let's let the table do the talking.
