Fans and pundits alike enjoy criticizing Grant Holt when he makes a slow start to the season. But the reality is this is just the sort of player he is. People said he wasn't good enough for the Championship and Premier League, but he proved them wrong on both occasions.
I have been disappointed with his start to the season, but I am not unduly concerned and won't be writing him off like some people. Grant revels in this sort of situation, and there is no reason to think he can't have a similar season to last year. It would be foolish for Newcastle to underestimate him in Sunday's game.
Snodgrass has been a long-time target for Norwich City, and there was a sense of real relief that he was finally captured in the summer. The club's admiration for the player's abilities has been well placed, as shown in the opening four games of the season.
He is likely to be Norwich's main attacking force, so Newcastle will have to keep him quiet if they have any hope of keeping the Canaries quiet.
Garrido has been the summer signing that most fans have been impressed with more than any other. It is a well-known fact that the defense was a weak point for the club last season. Garrido looks like a class act defensively and also going forward. But he is likely to have his work cut out against Newcastle.
