Geremi Disappointed for Newcastle Fans

Geremi has been talking to the Newcastle Evening Chronicle today and he feels sorry for the Newcastle fans.


Geremi – disappointed for Newcastle United fans

Geremi told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I wanted to show the Newcastle fans I wanted to do well.” “As a footballer you want to play and be professional and do your job.”

“And you have to give a lot of credit to the Newcastle fans because they keep on coming to see you.” “The bad thing is when they turn up and you don’t perform well.”

“That’s a big disappointment, so you want to play very well to make them happy.” “They come to watch you and pay a lot of money so you have to work hard for them.

“The best thing is when you play well and people enjoy it.’’

But since Kevin Keegan has arrived Geremi has started to play very well in right mid-field and has received some glowing reports from his new manager Kevin Keegan.

However, Geremi realizes he still has to work hard and show the right attitude to grab Keegan’s attention in training that he showed once he returned from the African Cup of Nations in January.

Geremi said:

“It’s important to show a new manager what you can do. You need to impress him and you need to gain his confidence.”“And you have to win your place in the starting XI.”

“When I returned from Ghana he didn’t play me straight away. He needed to see what my quality was like, but I think he knows me better now.’’

Geremi has had a tough season but he’s shown a great and very professional attitude, and now is a fixture in Newcastle’s first team. That’s the kind of player we want at Newcastle, and Geremi no doubt is now looking forward to an excellent Newcastle career.

We think he’s going to continue to do very well under Kevin Keegan on Tyneside.

    First up! Woo! Eat my comment!

    Ahem. Sorry.

    I think Geremi is a good example of a very good player that went off the boil. Now KK is showing that replacing these players is not the way to respond, and that they can come good given time and support.

    There’s been too much calling for players to be sold recently, and this is a good example.

    punk skunk, straight out of a book there? lol…

    geremi has pulled alot of fans around, probably 85%, although the only non supporter would be craigg.

    he is a hard worker and is in his favourite position right now, right hand side of a 3 man midfield.

    im still not convinced by him tbh but he has definetly shown he can play well and intelligently at that right centre position.

    hopefully he can play like this every game cos hes been terrible in all but 3 or 4 games this season if wer being realistic but last few games like every1 hes played very well.

    Honestly guys if you don’t know why he’s an amazing player you aint played football 🙂

    He is all over the pitch, cool as cucumber, physically imposing, makes tackles, looks to open up play AND can keep hold of the ball if needs be. Yes his dead ball play outside of ‘that’ free kick has been appaling but thats a confidence issue. Any little foible is magnified a million times infront of 30-50k people and I reckon he’s got a wall to break down there.

    Faye is a little hap hazzard for me but in Geremi and Beye we have a mature, experienced and passionate backbone to the side that is going to be imperative next season.

    everyone Davey G is Knighsbobmoncur so dont be too surprised if you find the two agreeing with each other regularly. Read the article about sir bobby robsons words and you will see his comments and figure it out in a matter of seconds, how embarrassing.

    🙂 KK sure now can build a better team around this cool chap. btw KK also has to add another 1 or 2 quality & more younger utility players like him in the summer coz’ in Smith we don’t trust to do the job.

    Geremi has an excellent attitude and is the essence of the kind of player we want at the club. He has his limitations, but he has played very well of late and during the difficult times he wasn’t a sulking little prat. His season at NUFC has been harder than most, and for him to come through as he has done is a real testament to his character.

    He is so important for us:
    1. He forms a very good partnership with our best player (Habib). Better than Milner does (less qualities than Geremi and not a good defender).
    2. He has got a football brain and always searches the easiest solution.
    3. His attitude is perfect; he first lost his captaincy without any descent explanation and he never complaint about it. Then when he came back from ACN he was on the bench and he needed to fight for his place in the team. And again he did that without complaining.
