Newcastle will kick start the 2016/2017 season later tonight when they face off against another former Premier League side, Fulham at Craven Cottage, with the cameras televising the game for you to watch online.
The Magpies dropped out of the Premier League last season but fair play, Mike Ashley has got his man and the club has invested wisely, bringing in a number of seasoned championship players and rising stars as they looked to make an immediate return.
The captures of Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace, Grant Hanley and Matt Richie from Bournemouth, all £10m + signings, means that manager Rafa Benitez has at his disposal a number of players with experience of the Championship.
Mohamed Diame rejected a new contract with Premier League Hull; is another signing that will add to the Newcastle cause although with the transfer only being finalised earlier in the week it remains to be seen if the former Hull midfielder will feature.
Ciaran Clarke will add defensive strength to the team following his move from Aston Villa while Isaac Hayden has signed from Arsenal.
While Benitez has top level experience; he has never managed in the Championship yet despite his relative inexperience Newcastle are heavy favourites to make a swift return to the top tier and there is a definite feeling of optimism around St James Park.
Fulham of course have been in this position before.
The Cottagers were heavy favourites to make an immediate return to the Premier League following their relegation in 2014; however they are now facing their third season at this level.
The club have lost star striker Ross McCormack after they accepted a bid in the region of £14m from Aston Villa for the 29 year old. The sale will follow on from the departure of Moussa Dembele to Celtic earlier in the summer and means Fulham will be without both their strikers from last season.
Boss Slavisa Jokanovic, who joined the London side in December 2015 has added the likes of Sone Aluko, Tomas Kalas on a season-loan from Chelsea and Austrian defender Michael Madl to his ranks.
Fulham won 1-0 when the two sides last met in 2014 in the Premier League, but the home side are not fancied tonight. Newcastle’s squad looks formidable for the Championship, on paper at least and it would take a foolish punter to back against the away win tonight.
11/10 looks more than worthy and its a price that we’ll be tucking into – It should get our weekend off to a flyer.
