I feel more confident for tomorrow after we fought back against Kiev and played some good passionate football, as opposed to losing games recently and going out with a whimper. Thing is, will this being knackered after Europe syndrome kick in again. We just need to do what we did Thursday and fight for what we have to. Time to roll the sleeves up in the league and put this one to bed decisively.
Having both games at home helps with recovery etc. Barry will be out, so the midfield should look fresher, same with Stones coming back in for Alcaraz (hopefully).
Maybe I'm guilty of having a bit too much faith, but I've heard the things I wanted to hear from Martinez and the players since Thursday, that I feel like I haven't heard so far this season, and I think the penny's dropping a bit. Anyway, talk is cheap, so we'll see.
I will be massively fucked off if we come out and play another tepid first 20-30 minutes. We'll find out tomorrow whether I'm being naive I suppose.
Oh and Newcastle are utter shite, so that helps.
