After what seemed like two endless weeks, the lads take the pitch at St. James' Park with an opportunity to atone for their extremely poor showing at White Hart Lane. It is a different squad that takes the field this week, with Yohan Cabaye, Cheik Tiote and Ryan Taylor all making returns to the starting lineup. With a full-strength NUFC squad and a Wolves squad that has spent the last two weeks without a manager, enduring a somewhat embarrassing search in which it seemed that any manager out there with pedigree would not touch the job with a 10-foot pole and ending up hiring an assistant from within Mick McCarthy's setup (Didn't Blackburn Rovers try that?)... add in that Wolves will be playing without their first-choice center back tandem, and this seems to be set up for Newcastle supporers to be cautiously optimistic about taking away a result.

Let's chat it all out one way or the other!
