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 â€“ 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 thatâ€™s just not good enough, as we all know.
Letâ€™s take a look at what Geremi said yesterday about our last game at Blackburn:
â€œThe fans were magnificent, but unfortunately they didnâ€™t get the result they wanted.â€ â€œWe are very disappointed, because we felt it was a good performance.â€ â€œSince the Liverpool game, everyone has been disappointed.â€
â€œWe said we were going to fight to try to correct the bad game against Liverpool, and I think we showed character.â€
â€œWe hope the fans are going to keep shouting for us â€“ we can do good things together.â€ â€œWhen you play like that and lose, you try to take the positive things and work for the next game.â€
â€œWhen you concede these kind of goals, you canâ€™t blame someone. This is football, and weâ€™ve got to have a time when luck will be on our side. We tried to fight, but unfortunately we didnâ€™t get any points.” â€œThere are good, positive things to take from the game.â€
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 weâ€™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 weâ€™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 â€“ all comments are very welcome â€“ just keep the language fairly decent, because of our young supporters, who we know read this site â€“ many thanks.
