Newcastle’s Cameroon International has talked about the game tomorrow at St. James’ Park.
Geremi – his neighbors have been talking about the game all week
Geremi has been little short of a revelation on the right side of midfield since Keegan returned to the club and eventually started to play 4-3-3, and it’s a formation that has yet to taste defeat. Geremi insisted the Newcastle players were not even thinking of defeat tomorrow.
Geremi talked about the game today:
â€œWe are looking forward to it, itâ€™s a derby and we know exactly what it means to the supporters and we want to make them happy because it has been a disappointing season.â€
â€œEver since I arrived, people have told me what this game means. My neighbors have been talking about it all week, but I already knew what it meant, I have been in the north before and I know how passionate the derbies are.â€
â€œWe are not even thinking about losing the game. We have been playing well, we are in front of our own fans, we are confident and this is a game we must win.â€
Geremi, like Habib Beye, came on as a substitute in the 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light back back in November, but both African players will definitely start the game on Sunday.
Newcastle are playing better now than all season, and it’s no secret too that they are playing open and attacking football, which is very easy to watch.
We saw the Chelsea game against Wigan on Monday night, and no wonder the Chelsea fans are unhappy with the way their team is playing. Dour football is what they served up, and they were booed off the field at the end of the 1-1 draw. It was abysmal football for a team like Chelsea with all their top players.
There’s little chance of that fare being served up by this Newcastle side under Kevin Keegan, who is determined to have the team play open and attacking football, and he’s got the best out of almost every Newcastle player in the squad.
It;s no wonder people in football were delighted when he returned to the game in January, and it appears that Sunderland manager Roy Keane is a big Keegan fan too, from the many complimentary comments Roy has made this week.
Having almost every Newcastle player now playing at their best is a huge compliment to the man’s motivation skills, and it’s a pleasure to have Kevin Keegan back managing the Tyneside club.
Now for 3 points tomorrow.
