Per reader request, we are going to start opening up game threads for non-Newcastle games, especially ones that are relevant to the Toon cause. Pro tip: If there's a game you're watching and you think other CHN readers will want to join you, feel free to start up your own FanPost or FanShot. Nothing is out of bounds - other Prem games, MLS, Bundesliga, Super 15, whatever.
This game is of interest because a loss or draw by Chelsea ensures that Newcastle stay above them in the table for the time being. For full coverage of each team, head to Cottagers Confidential and We Ain't Got No History.
