Nigel Pearson said after the game that he was absolutely delighted for the players after the great 4-1 FA Cup victory over Stoke City at St. James’ Park last night.
Nigel Pearson – great job by him and the players
After the tragic game against Manchester United on Saturday, when we were slammed, 6-0 Pearson said:
“After Saturday’s performance it was vitally important that we had the right sort of performance tonight.” “At the end of the day, players have to look in the mirror and ask if they are doing enough.”
“I’m absolutely delighted for the players tonight because they have gone a long way to getting that back.” “There were a lot of contributing factors tonight – it was a different game, and we imposed ourselves a lotâ€
Pearson said it was impossible to say exactly what affect the arrival of Kevin Keegan as manager had on the players, but we think he can take credit in that he got the players ready even though he was helped by the appointment.
Hey we won â€“ thatâ€™s the most important thing – and now we need 3 points against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday. 😀
