Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce thinks that a Newcastle United victory against bottom of the league Derby County on Sunday afternoon (2:00 pm KO), will mark what Sam calls a milestone for the club this season.
Sam Allardyce – we hope he’s doing this after Derby game on Sunday
We are going into the game on the back of two successive victories and a great draw at home to top of the table Arsenal.
So confidence right now has to be high in the team and the big man is definitely hoping the team will head into Christmas as the Premier League’s in-form team with 3 wins in a row.
The Newcastle manager told Newcastle World TV this morning:
“We have the chance to make it three wins in a row and that’s a great milestone to try to achieve,” “It would be a huge confidence boost going into Christmas and it keeps us on track for where we want to go.”
“Derby may be bottom but the game will be more difficult than people expect.â€ “Our players will have to show great effort and professionalism before using our skills to get the win.â€
“It would also be great for the fans to give them some Christmas cheer because they have been magnificent in recent weeks.”
“Weâ€™ve got to believe the team will be inspired to win the game on Sunday because that would make a great Christmas for the Newcastle faithful, who Sam rightly points out have been magnificent all season, in our view.”
What better Christmas present to give the fans than a win on Sunday?” “We expect the team will do just that, even though it will not be as easy as it looks on paper.”
We completely agree with Sam on this. What better way to give Newcastle fans all over the world a Christmas present, than with a win. And we don’t want to be too greedy but a good performance and a win would be even better. And if we could also keep a clean sheet then ………………
Whoops – getting carried away again. 😀
