Things have not been easy in this his first season at Newcastle United, but Chairman Chris Mort must have been really pleased with the performance of the team in North London yesterday.
Chris Mort – great performance from Newcastle
Chris Mort spoke today with Miles Starforth of the Shields Gazette:
“It’s the sort of performance we’ve been putting in, but we haven’t been getting the results to show for it.â€ “But (yesterday) the goals went in, and the result we deserved came our way at last.â€
“We had a good start to the season up to October. Since then, we’ve had to fight for everything we’ve got.â€ “The results haven’t really come. The football went a bit awry, but Kevin’s got them playing again, and we saw that.”
Asked if the result was any more special because of the links between Newcastle Owner Mike Ashley and Tottenham Hotspur, Chris added:
“Not particularly.â€ “It’s good to go away and get a 4-1 win. I don’t think it particularly matters whether it’s Tottenham or not.â€“It’s a tough place to come, and they’ve been playing very well since they brought in their new manager.”
“It was a great result and performance.â€
“Mike lives in London, so he’ll have been delighted to have come to White Hart Lane and won.â€ “One of his good friends is Paul Kemsley, who is in New York at the moment.â€
“I think a few texts have been going backward and forward already.”
We hope this win is just one of a few we’ll get in the run-in, to what in truth has been a terrible season for the club. But every single win we can get in the last 6 games will further raise the mood of the Newcastle fans this season.
If we can put a string of wins together, there’ll be no trouble in selling season tickets for next season, which promises to be an exciting and even successful season for the Newcastle faithful.
But anything has to be better than this season, after all.
Comments very welcome.
