The game against Arsenal on Wednesday night at St. Jamesâ€™ Park will be a very tough game, with Arsenal again looking to be the best team in the Premier league.
They beat a good Aston Villa side 2-1 at Villa Park yesterday, and looked what they are â€“ the next edition of Arsene Wengerâ€™s dominant Arsenal sides.
Sam Allardyce – must turn Newcastle fortunes around soon
Itâ€™s great for the Premier League that we now have four teams at least, that can win the league and hopefully in the future, Aston Villa, West Ham, Tottenham, Blackburn, and eventually Newcastle United, can also be challenging for honors.
But Arsenal are in tip-top form right now, so we need another fighting performance from the lads on Wednesday evening if we are to get some kind of result. Great support from the fans will also help a great deal.
Sam Allardyce talked about Newcastleâ€™s predicament after the Blackburn game yesterday, and it’s good to see that after Arsenal, we do have easier games that we should be able to take points from.
“What we have to do is keep playing like we did today,” “We have to keep the belief because that’s we need to turn this bad spell around. We need to get results and to get points on the board.â€
â€œWe have to play like we did today at home. It has been a good performance but unfortunately we haven’t got the result. That’s the hardest thing. And the most important thing because it keeps the bad run going which can ebb away at the confidence and the belief.â€
“You start to wonder when is it going to turn around. It’s my job to make sure that it does, and if they show the ability and commitment they have today I’m sure it will.”
After Arsenal we play Birmingham (H), Fulham (A), Derby (H), and Wigan Athletic (A) and we just have to make the most of those 4 games. All those teams are below us in the league, and we can improve our position greatly if we can get points.
Certainly if we show the same fighting qualities of yesterday, we should surely be able to turn things around. And Sam needs to do that quickly, as the January transfer window approaches.Â We’re sure he will want to be in the market again, for some new defenders. It’s so obvious that defense is still our Achilles heel, as in the last several seasons.
