How long will the agony continue in Toon?
Remember the last time Blackburn came to Toon?
Glenn Roeder certainly will because it was the straw that broke the camel's back as far as his Newcastle United career was concerned.
That day was a luke warm performance from Newcastle which eventually ended in a 2-0 defeat.
This time around United go into it desperate for victory with Kevin Keegan searching for his first win.
And it's clear that despite the difficult start, that the Toon Army will still be right behind the team.
Nobody turned on the Toon troops against Man United - even though they were hammered 5-1 -and the knowledgeable Geordie public appreciated it's going to take time.
Beating Blackburn would probably be the launchpad to a positive end to the season, but saying is one thing and doing is another.
In a week where Newcastle have been battered by the national Press once again, could it end on a high by seeing off Mark Hughes and Co?
Don't forget, anything can happen on Tyneside.
But surely Newcastle can't underperform for the rest of the campaign.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
