Newcastle United have scored 34 goals at home this season and 19 away

Lovenkrands - Scoring a fair few goals for the Toon and long may it continue

As I said a yesterday Newcastle United were in rich scoring form at home, and had accumulated 9 goals in their last 2 games on Tyneside. Using my fantastic mathematical brain(!) I’ve calculated that, the average amount of goals scored in our last two encounters is 4.5, with Wayne Routledge’s goal counting as the extra half :D. It doesn’t take a genius to see that we are pelting them in at home of late and against decent sides, Cardiff City and indeed Coventry City. However, I’m sure you’ve all noticed that we are failing to score freely away from home, if even scoring at all.

In fact, we’ve only scored one in our last 3 games away from home, at Leicester City, Derby County and indeed Swansea City. All decent sides mind you but still, there’s  huge difference between our scoring form at home and away. Although you’d expect that, not to the extent that’s occurring.

There’s no point looking at in serious detail though because it doesn’t mean a whole lot as such, but we really would look to see the lads score more away from home and to start winning away from home again.

As we saw with Stoke City last season and this season, home form is essential to any successful season. Stoke have the most unattractive style of football anyone could for yet they’re grinding out results thanks to a pressurizing crowd, long-throws and a tight back line which includes former Newcastle defender Abdoulaye Faye.

If we can keep our great home form going throughout the remainder of the season then we’ll be doing very well. If we can beat Nottingham Forest at St.James’ in a game that Tyne Time may well be attending although we’re being made wait until the 1st of March to order the tickets online. (If anyone feels they can help then do contact us) 😀 then we’ll have done brilliantly.

With Brom, Cardiff, Swansea, and Middlesbrough all played at home and many of them already played twice for the season then surely we can win this league outright. I’ve put my confidence in the lads and I think they’ll duly deliver.

(One they pick up their away form) 😀

Comments welcome 🙂

I reckon it's because we go out with a negative mentality away from home instead of looking to win like we do at home we aim not to lose away from home that is reflected in the tactics used as well.

That was the worst, most pointless article ever. For starters, the first paragraph makes no sense? we've won out last 2 games 5-1 and 4-1, so your "fantastic mathematical brain" cocked that one up, genius! And who cares about the last few games, every team has a blip, and if this is ours we've lost 1 game in about 19. Fact is we're grinding out our away games out and making St James' a fortress. You can't expect us to batter every single team home AND away

Obviously that was a joke David if you've any sense of humour at all. I'm pretty sure we've scored 44 goals Graham, most of them stats sites indicate otherwise, but I don't think they've counted them all. It's no lie to say we aren't playing too well away from home and that was the point of the article. There isn't a huge amount of news to report on at the minute regards Newcastle.

I have checked NUFC's official website and 'done the maths' to find the stats are: We have scored a total of 62 goals so far (post Coventry match) At home we have scored a total of 41 goals, and away we have scored a total of 21 goals. In the league, we have scored a total of 53 goals. 34 of these have been scored at home, with 19 being scored away. Doocey....I would like to think that you were talking of the 3 games prior to the Coventry game, and that your maths should have been on an average of those 3 games (not 2 as stated) which would then give an average of 3 goals scored per game.

Well calculated Lenny, I just did a quick add of our home games this season and thought it worked out at 41. My bad.
