A Bridge too far?
Newcastle United may well be up against it in their trip to Chelsea and while some things in life aren't certain other things are pretty much nailed on.
You can make up your own mind about the result of the game which to many of us already looks ominous.
That's not just because Newcastle haven't won at the venue since 1986 in the days of Andy Thomas, Paul Stephenson and Peter Beardsley.
Recent visits to Stamford Bridge have been miserable for Toon fans.
Last season Newcastle ended a run of seven games without even scoring a goal at the place but instead they endured a last minute defeat with Salomon Kalou's clearly offside winner inflicting even more misery on the visitors.
The amount of money Toon fans have spent watching United at Stamford Bridge is nothing short of astronomical and for what?
A series of performances in which they have hardly even stepped up to the plate.
But what will happen for certain on Saturday is that Toon fans will turn up and sing their hearts out all of the way through.
Chelsea fans will be singing songs about how great Dennis Wise is.
Toon fans will respond.
United fans though would also like to see some battling spirit and it wouldn't go a miss when Newcastle step to the field against the Blues.
It's got to be time to show some fight away from home with no wins on the road in the bag so far.
And unless Newcastle do show some fight there's nothing else in store apart from the annual beating.
