Newcastle United ended a long wait for a first Premier League victory last Saturday as we entertained Watford at St James’ Park.

A single goal from Ayoze Perez was enough to return all three points and a first win for manager Rafa Benitez and having slipped into the bottom three as the weeks since the start of the 2018/19 campaign have ticked by, victory boosted us up to 17th place.

Hardly a rosy position but the top-flight table certainly looks a bit better than it did on Friday evening that’s for sure.

With the dreaded ‘relegation’ word featuring for a number of fans given our form and results so far, there’s a section who remain ultra optimistic when it comes to not dropping back down to the Championship, and the result on Saturday simply boosted their belief.

Whatever flaws we have in our first team, they see far bigger problems elsewhere in the division.
