Gus Poyet is looking forward to going to play at St James' Park on Saturday - 'play' being the key word.
The midfielder knows Sir Bobby Robson's men are a threat offensively with the likes of Shearer, Ameobi, Lua Lua, Dyer, Jenas and Robert on board.
But, at the same time, Gus knows we should have a chance to go forward as well.
It's a game that could suit us if we come out of the traps with the same attacking intent as we did recently against Manchester City - another team who 'let you play' - and keep our finishing boots on from the 5-2 win against Wolves.
"It's a place I really enjoy going to play," said Gus, who scored at St James back in 2001-02 and came close again last season.
"They play football, they go forward and they are capable of scoring goals but at the same time, they give you a chance to attack them.
"We are confident after Wolves and have to try and get something from it. We are looking for points from every game."
