With Newcastle now starting to score goals again, and lots of them, the question now is who will finish top scorer for Newcastle, in what has been a really disappointing season, but could have a great finish to it for the Newcastle faithful.
Oba Martins now has 9 goals to go with his 17 from last season
With just five games still to play, our three strikers are showing no signs of letting up whatsoever, and the players seem dedicated to giving the fans a fantastic finish to this season.
Kevin Keegan told Newcastle World TV after watching all three strikers score a goal during Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Reading.
“The three lads up front are so different to each other, it’s almost chalk, cheese and chalk againâ€ â€œOba is different from Michael who is different from Mark.â€ “They’ve scored seven times between them in the last three and have been the main reason behind our turnaround.â€
“Having Mark back has been a big help because he gives us a focal point and some stature and experience at the head of the attack.” “That allows Oba and Michael to go and do the things they do so well.â€ “There’s still five games to play and we want to finish in style.â€
“We’ve built a great platform for that in the last three matches and with the three lads up front scoring like they are then I see no reason why we can’t do that.”
In fact it will be very interesting how many goals each of our three strikers end up with. If we can dispatch most of our chances in one of these games, one team could easily be hit for 6 – or even more, from this Newcastle side.
Not sure which team that will be – Sunderland would obviously be a good choice -Â but we think one big win is still in the offing for Newcastle before the end of this season.
