Good luck today fellas - They were awful last week and let's hope Keano can stop the run of five derby without a win.. it's about time you won one

you almost pulled it off, you were the better team but you could have lost it in the end!

Very poor away from home newcastle and you lot are struggling yourselfes at the moment, so a draw was on the cards. Thought you were the better team just.
