Oba Martins is certainly looking forward to the game against Everton tomorrow and he mentions what Sam has been saying all week.
It will be an opportunity for Newcastle to take advantage of Everton’s tiredness, from their excursions in the Ukraine on Thursday evening.
Oba also points out that Newcastle expect to start fast out of the blocks, and of course an early goal would be great. That would quickly make the game a little bit of a hill to climb for the Everton players.
Oba Martins – looks like he just scored again!
This is what Oba said today:
“I watched Everton on TV and they played very well, but I know that they think that the Premiership is most important for them.â€
“I think we can take advantage of their tiredness. We must go at them from the first minute because they’ve had a long week.â€ “If we score early, it won’t help them at all. If we score first, we’ll go on and win.â€
Thatâ€™s a good point Oba makes. If we do score first we would be in the ascendancy and expect to win. That didnâ€™t happen last week however, when Oba put us ahead with a great goal, only for the defense to then leak goals.
“The whole team’s looking forward to the game and knows how important it is to go away for the internationals with three points.”
Martins knows the two Nigerians in the Everton side, Joseph Yobo and Victor Anichebe, but he is hoping they will both have a miserable afternoon tomorrow on Tyneside 😀
“My friends all play and they are great players,” “And they’ll want to come to St James’s Park and win here.â€ “It’s a big game for us, Everton are a very good team and are doing well this season.â€
“We aren’t doing too badly at home and we want to keep our unbeaten home run up.”Â “It’ll be really tough, but I think we’re capable of doing it.â€
Oba will be a big player for us tomorrow, because he looked to be on fire last week against City, and was a little unlucky not to score a second goal. But one goal tomorrow should be good enough, as long as our defense staysÂ awake the whole game.
Comments very welcome.
