Saints went up to St.James Park to play Newcastle United, managed by former Saints manager Alan Pardew. I remember being hugely dissappointed by our loses there last year but Yohan Cabaye who bossed the game then was missing with injury. His absence didn’t stop us conceding early, Yoan Gouffran being yet another Frenchman scoring for Newcastle this season, but our own Lancashire Spaniard Jay Rodriguez equalising and getting four points for my FPL side.
