James Milner, who was threatening throughout the game against Arsenal on Wednesday evening, has talked to the Evening Chronicle today.
James Milner – continues to improve this season
And the Yorkshireman, who seems a very mature 21 year-old is very clear on what Newcastle United need to do, and he seems so right.
Letâ€™s take a look at what James said today:
â€œWe havenâ€™t performed as well as we should have in a few games but we want to change that against Birmingham.â€ â€œNot performing will always create pressure.â€â€œBut there is pressure every time you walk out on the field.â€
â€œPlaying for a massive club like Newcastle means you are under pressure.â€ â€œBut it is how you deal with that.â€ â€œIf you canâ€™t handle the pressure then you shouldnâ€™t be at the club.â€
â€œBut it will take time and hopefully if we are putting in performances like we did against Arsenal it will change.â€ â€œThereâ€™s always going to be a lot said about you when things arenâ€™t going your way.â€
â€œIt is just a case of sticking together.â€ â€œWe know just how much quality there is in that dressing room, but the performances just werenâ€™t happening for us.â€
â€œIt is just a case of turning things around.â€ â€œHopefully we can do that. It was only a point against Arsenal but now we need to make sure we go out and get the win against Birmingham.â€
â€œNothing less than three points will do for us tomorrow.â€ â€œAnd as long as we keep performing in the way we have done in the last two games there is no reason why we canâ€™t kick on.â€
â€œHopefully, we have turned that corner, but now we must keep going.â€ â€œEveryone knows that if you put pressure on teams you can cause them problems.â€ â€œAnd the pressure at the end against Arsenal showed that.â€
â€œWe could have taken three points.â€ â€œWe have set the standards now and we must make sure this isnâ€™t a one-off.â€ â€œIt was only a point, so this has to be the start of a long road up the table.â€
Well, there’s not too much we can add to that. James says it all. Maybe James can get a goal tomorrow, that’s about all that’s missing from his game as he continues to improve this season.
James can be an awsome player in a couple of seasons, and as we said, he’s still improving. He’s just a great player for Newcastle, and to think he’s still only 21 years old. 😀
