Going Up?

With last night's win at Doncaster the worst possible end to the season is sixth place and a shoeing in the first round of the play-offs. This would have seemed wildly optimistic to most supporters at the beginning of August, when the most likely outcome was us winding up like Stephen Taylor's jaw. Will the current team be good enough to stay in the Premier League? Ask Burnley. Or Wolves. Or Stoke.

The first rule of supporting Newcastle United is to enjoy things while they last. The second is that it's best not to get too far ahead of yourself.

I'll review my current state of scepticism after the Forest game on Monday night. Ever the deluded fan though I was pondering an unbeaten run all the way to the finishing line.
Will go and get a reality check.

Rather like Ian Huntley (apologies to Frankie Boyle) Stephen Taylor can now look smart without the need to purchase a tie.
