Sam Allardyce has admitted today that he isn’t getting too much sleep at night as he tries to find a way for Newcastle out of the bad patch they are currently in.
Sam Allardyce – not getting too much sleep at nights
We remember earlier in the season Sam saying that he never slept much before a game when he was playing and it seems as thought it’s much the same when he’s the manager. Sam told the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œTo be honest, I donâ€™t really sleep much anyway â€“ even less when I am in a position like I am in now, because you want to look at yourself first.â€
â€œYou are the one who has to change what you need to change, and the way you are going to go about your job is very important in terms of the people who look up to see if they get the leadership they need to pull them through it. I know I can do that. We know if we all stick together and produce performances at the sort of level we did on Saturday, we will.â€
â€œI have got to reinforce that with the players and show them the way forward, and they have got to keep believing in themselves and us as a unit, and come through the difficult period we are in.
â€œWe are all uncomfortable with the situation â€“ we are all getting a little bit desperate.â€ â€œBut at the end of the day, the judgment comes at 38 games for me, not at 14.â€
â€œIt would be a terrific victory if we could achieve it and, at this particular time, the most important one.â€
Anything is possible on the night, but it will be a little harder against the team who are currently at the top of the Premier league. But before our two woeful displays against Portsmouth and Liverpool we had played very well at home. And after Saturday’s good performance away from home, hopes have to be high that we can produce another good display at home, against the Londoners.
With the game being broadcast live around the world, it will be a great stage for Newcastle to come back into their own and back on their winning ways. We only hope they can do just that.
