Newcastle United are no longer playing in fear going into this weekend’s extremely important derby game against local rivals Sunderland.
Geremi – Geordie fans should be happy Sunday
So says midfield star and Cameroon International Geremi.
When Kevin first came Newcastle didnâ€™t register their first win until Kevinâ€™s 10th game in charge. But they went awfully close on several occasions against Bolton, Middlesbrough and Birmingham, with each game ending in a draw.
And of course we should have won the game against Blackburn when Michael Owen missed 5 good chances and as luck would have it Blackburn broke away in added time to score the winner.
But that was the way things went in those days but things have changed dramatically since then.
Geremi talked to the official Newcastle World TV today:
“Now we are not scared of any team we play against,” “Previously we were low on confidence and the run we were on was worrying.â€“But the manager changed things and we haven’t looked back.â€
“Now we have shape and are playing good football and we are a team.” “This kind of game is very special because it’s a derby,” “We are playing with confidence at the moment and I think we are going to make the fans very happy on Sunday.”
That almost sounds like a promise from Geremi, but we think the way we’ve been playing the last 5 games should be good enough to defeat Sunderland.
They are a side very well managed by Roy Keane, and they will fight hard, but the extra class in the Newcastle ranks should make the difference.Â Especially since the game is at St. James’ Park, and we certainly need all 3 points.
