Newcastle go third!

It's a good time to be a Newcastle United fan at the minute - so happy we are suffering from vertigo!

I regret to say that I missed the game last night, but the highlights showed a great perfomance to beat Stoke away from home.

Whilst I was in the Commons speaking on the Legal Aid and Sentencing Bill, Ba scored a hat trick and sent us 3 points clear of Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal.
Statistically we have the best defensive record in the top tier.

And whisper it softly but the team look a really settled side. There is a lot to be said for consistency of selection. Best of all, when Ben Arfa is fully fit we will give the Manchester teams a real hurry up.
