It's derby day again and Steve McClaren will be hoping to succeed where his predecessors Pardew and Carver have failed to do so. Newcastle have lost a record-tying five in a row (and drawn two on top of that) and the Toon Army will be desperate to exact their pound of Black Cat flesh in revenge for the long losing streak. Newcastle are coming off of a 6-2 thrashing of Norwich in which the Canaries looked plenty dangerous in the attack while their opponents are yet to find a victory in the Premier League but will be hoping for the "New Manager bump" for the fourth successive year.
