No jump today, just a few pieces of Newcastle United game day news.
First of all, a couple very pertinent pieces of news.
Most importantly, Steven Harper has got a knock to the knee, which means Tim Krul will be in net against Manchester United. The Chronicle has a piece up about Krul being "unfazed"... he better get fazed is all I've got to say.
Also, Stephen Ireland is all set to make his debut despite spending most of the last few days at the hospital with his lady.
A bit less important, but Alan Pardew has apparently seen fit to tell Cheik Tiote to cool it a bit against ManU. I can't decide if this is good or bad news. What do you think?
Ok some secondary news for the upcoming clash.
Last but not least, the guys over at EPLTalk have an entertaining piece about whether the fans of a team like Manchester United have the ability to handle adversity, or even a losing streak for that matter.
