Does The Theatre of Nightmares lie in wait for the Mags?
Anybody who went to Wigan will know that Newcastle United surely can't do any worse than they did at the JJB Stadium when they head to Stamford Bridge.
Or can they?
I don't want to be negative but you have to fear the worst.
For starters United couldn't win at Chelsea when they had a good team, Keegan and Robson included.
In truth we have been terrible at the Bridge and it doesn't look like it will get better does it?
Toon fans - as Big Sam has already said aren't "daft" - they are actually some of the most knowledgeable supporters in the game and deserve at the very least a bit of passion from their team.
They didn't see a drop of that at Wigan and it was more like watching a team that have been handed a game plan that nobody quite understood.
What else explains just one shot on target?
At Chelsea there could be a slight improvement but for that we'll need a bit of bottle and passion.
That will be there in bucket loads in the away section.
But will it be on the field of play?
