Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce insisted last night that the point gained against Sunderland yesterday was a very good point.
Seems like the Newcastle boss is already fed up with all the negativity that surrounds the Newcastle club right now.
But Sam will have to get used to the fact that at Newcastle things are either great or terrible, and unfortunately there’s nothing in between.
Sam Allardyce – my glass is half full
Sam is a positive guy and you can always look at things being very bad â€“ you just look for all the bad stuff that’s happened. When youâ€™re positive you of course look at the good things that have happened. It just depends which way you look at things. But the positive thinkers in this world are more successful, thereâ€™s little doubt about that.
Sam talked about his doubters last night as he said:
â€œMy glass is half-full, yours is half-empty,â€ â€œWeâ€™re still nine points ahead of where we were last year, yet youâ€™re still so negative.â€
Itâ€™s true that after 12 league games last year we had only 9 points, with just 2 wins and 3 draws. Our goal difference was -7 having scored 7 goals and conceded 14. The interesting stat is that this year weâ€™ve conceded more goals, 18 in total, as contrasted to 14 last season. But we’ve scored 19 times this season but had only 7 goals at this time last year.
So our defense was actually better last year than it is this season, so far. And that just about sums up our season so far. We’ve conceded some stupid goals that have cost us too many points. The sooner Sam can fix that the sooner more Newcastle fans will agree with Sam, that the glass is indeed half full – and not completely empty.
