Geremi – We’re Disappointed For The Fans


The Newcastle United captain Geremi has promised Newcastle United fans they will soon get better results, as the players are trying very hard to turn things around at the club.

Certainly we were quite pleased with the performance at Blackburn and the last 45 minutes of that game was a real cracker to watch – a really exciting end to end game.

Geremi – we showed character against Blackburn Rovers

But we were drained at the end of it since we could so easily have scored more goals but seemed to miss chances when it looked easier to score. But the bare facts, that managers and teams get judged on, is that we have only a single point from the last 15, and that’s just not good enough, as we all know.

Let’s take a look at what Geremi said yesterday about our last game at Blackburn:

“The fans were magnificent, but unfortunately they didn’t get the result they wanted.” “We are very disappointed, because we felt it was a good performance.” “Since the Liverpool game, everyone has been disappointed.”

“We said we were going to fight to try to correct the bad game against Liverpool, and I think we showed character.”

“We hope the fans are going to keep shouting for us – we can do good things together.” “When you play like that and lose, you try to take the positive things and work for the next game.”

“When you concede these kind of goals, you can’t blame someone. This is football, and we’ve got to have a time when luck will be on our side. We tried to fight, but unfortunately we didn’t get any points.” “There are good, positive things to take from the game.”

Geremi has been one of the players out of sorts for Newcastle lately, and he has rarely made the starting eleven recently. He seems to give the ball away too many times and we’re a little surprised Big Sam has not played him at right-back in the back four, since they have struggled for lack of Premiership experience all season.

But almost everything that could have gone wrong in our last 5 games has, except for the lucky draw at Sunderland. We just have to hope tomorrow night that the luck starts to even itself out, which it usually does, over a string of games. And we’re going to need some luck tomorrow against Arsenal, who have looked tremendous so far this season, if we are to get anything out of the game.

What do you think? Do we have a chance to beat Arsenal tomorrow night? Let us know – all comments are very welcome – just keep the language fairly decent, because of our young supporters, who we know read this site – many thanks.

    geremi has got to improve his performance . he needs to quicken up a bit. for me he’s too flat footed and is taking a player’s position. there is no room for him in the startin 11.

    I think that your best chance of points is the game after when you play Birmingham. Imagine that if Portsmouth can destroy you on your own ground , what Arsenal will do to you. Just tire them out because we have them at the Riverside on Sunday.

    I hope you behave in your traditional way and sack your manager for this will certainly retain your status as the comedy club. If Newcastle fans had any sense they would get behind Sam and give hime a chance, you might even get used to watching the ball in the air all the time.

    I don’t know how many managers you lot are going to need before you figure it out.

    Enjoy your night out

    Big Sam’s a ‘qualified’ manager keeping his side out of the relegation zone ; ) At least we’ll end up the comedy club which is also the only north east team in the premiership…

    If Geremi wants to turn things around for the fans, tell him to get his finger out of his ar*e, his head out of the clouds and do something decent on the pitch.

    Football Focus on espn- a show which discusses football current issues -have summed up the problems newcastle are facing are due to simply “not good enough team” a pretty mediocre team with no quality no one stands out for the captaincy and they question what geremi does on the pitch and they say newcastle need stability and to give big sam time.

    well this could be the other side of the coin, players not being able to carry out instructions, they may act as if they give their all, sliding challenges , blistering runs, but are thay actually thinking using their noodles to play football. big sam’s team selection might be at fault too but we have to consider this prespective as well.

    Geremi as newcastle’s captain says a lot, if you think about it. From Shearer to Geremi?! I agree that he had some positive influence in the club on some players which is good but i don’t is enough to warrant the captain’s arm band.

    WSQ – Americans no jack sh*t about football, oh wait, SOCCER. They can’t even say it right. Geremi is poo, but why is he captain? Because he’s the only one who can communicate to all the players. Idiots! As for mediocre, we may look mediocre, but we have top players in our squad. For some reason or another they’re not playing well. Goes back to the old saying of “You don’t become a bad player overnight”! We have players with great CV’s, we need them on the pitch playing at there best! I don’t know many managers who are apable apart from BSA!

    If any of Sams buys have been actual disapointments, Geremi must be the one… He was the one defensive minded player we bought who had the most EPL experience and yet he has played poorly enough to drag the rest of the team down a notch. He has done nothing exept the assist for Oba against man city and his free kicks leaves allot to be desired.

    John Walker: Allardyce for Boro !!!

    By the way I expect us to give Arsenal a tough game. We’ve lost once in our last 6 at home against them. Mind you we might just buckle like the Boro or some of Allardyces teams to date. Tomorrow night will tell.

    valle, he made an assist on saturday from a free kick. i think mourinho got it right with him, he only used him in defensive positions, and whenever he played he seemed so much more energetic than playing for newcastle. anyone notice?

    well if he has been giving the ball away too much i cant blame alardyce for not putting him in our defence, that would just be suicide.

    Geremi, here’s a quick thought, that’s sweet and all, but instead of worrying about us, (we’re never happy) worry about your own game, cleary it doesn’t seem to keep you up at night. But it might want to be something ya think about and work on. How he was made captain I’ll never know.

    Leo..having someone in our defence that gives away the ball alot. Why does that sound so familiar..oh ya, our entire backline does it.

    But infairness our defence can’t really get any worse. Litterally.

    sorry john walker, but if you want comedy mate, it’ll come in the form on the story sky sports have been following recently. Middlesborough’s 10 million pound bid for ronaldinho.
    when you think you’re the laughing stock of the north east, you can always rely on the smoggy’s to go that one step further eh lads 🙂

    The rumours of us being after Dorin Goian of Steaua are piling up and getting stronger. the money mentioned is 3.5 mil which i think is a little steep. Dunno what will happen but i don’t think he’s good enough for us.

    “He was the one defensive minded player we bought who had the most EPL experience and yet he has played poorly enough to drag the rest of the team down a notch. ”

    part of the reason everyone is getting on sams back, enrique might not be playing excellent but hes not playing any where near as bad as geremi is to warrant zog playing lb, milner lw and geremi rw.

    even edgar would be better at least he would be learning something from playing in his current rut of form. the fact carr has played better at rb than geremi says it all.

    also we might be short on defensive cover, so why the f**k did sam sell huntington for peanuts ??? hes played better at rb than geremi has for us.

    I don’t believe it

    Bobby, and everyone else isnt a true loyal supporter I suppose, god some people are so sanctimonious it gets right up my nose.

    I suppose you are the only true Toon supporter in the whole bl**dy universe

    Why if we get so f*cking passionate are we not supporters because we have a rightful moan about a losing run.

    Get of your high horse I have been a supporter for zillions of years and probably will be long after you’ve passed on fron exposure from your equally wet friends.

    I don’t believe it.
