The situation for Newcastle United Football Club tomorrow afternoon is almost perfect.
Sam Allardyce – Newcastle have great chance to give fans a perfect Christmas box
We have won our last 2 games and we are at home against the bottom club, Derby County tomorrow afternoon, whose only previous win this season was against us at Pride Park. We want to avenge that defeat and a win will also guarantee Newcastle fans across the world, a very Merry Christmas.
Sam talked about the team not being ruthless enough:
“The key for me is converting the chances we’re creating, we’ve won games, but not as comfortably as we should have done,” “Chances have gone that should have been converted. Birmingham was a penalty and a corner, Fulham was a penalty.”“Open play goals have become few and far between in recent games, but it’s not because we’re not creating chances, it’s just we’re not making the most of them when they are presented.”
“Anything less than playing to our maximum against Derby will mean we’re caught out, that’s the last thing we want after building our confidence in the last few weeks.”
“These games can be harder than the likes of Arsenal coming here, in terms of motivating the players. The jolt we got against Birmingham City when they went ahead after starting well proves the point.”
We now have 4 points from our last 2 home games against Arsenal and Birmingham City. We need to make that 7 points from our last 3 games tomorrow by this time. That will then be 3 wins on the trot, and a very merry Christmas for Newcastle fans.
We can’t think of anything better.
