Nolberto Solano: "It's really really tough in December, for any team.
"If you have a bad run it is very easy to drop to the bottom.
"I hope for the Newcastle fans that they can get away from that situation. St. James' Park is not an easy place to go with the fans there.
"Hopefully they will get enough of this situation, because otherwise it will be a really long season for them.
"It's not easy because the Geordies have a lot of passion and are always behind the team.
"They miss Hatem Ben Arfa at the moment, he's a big miss for them."
