Newcastle captain Michael Owen, who is the man of the moment at Newcastle right now, has talked about the excitement and expectations surrounding the club.
Michael Owen – was that my 11th or 12th goal of the season?
Not surprisingly Michael admits there is a buzz around the place following Newcastle’s excellent performances and 14 points out of the last 18 available.
Michael Owen talked to Newcastle World TV:
â€œItâ€™s the oldest clichÃ© in the book, but we really are all in it together. Itâ€™s nice to play some good football, to get some confidence and itâ€™s nice to get the fansâ€™ backing.â€
â€œAnd itâ€™s nice to climb up the table. I couldnâ€™t have imagined saying a few weeks or months ago there really is a buzz and anticipation for next season.â€
â€œIn a way we want it to continue because weâ€™re on a great run, but if we can take these performances and the confidence weâ€™ve got about us and add one or two top players then itâ€™s going to be exciting times.â€
â€œWeâ€™re not going anywhere now fearing our opponents,â€
But until we complete the season and our three remaining games, we just have to keep our good run going. If we can end the season unbeaten in our last 9 games, with two or three more wins in the bag, then thereâ€™ll be a very good argument that Kevin has already turned the team around, and weâ€™ll only be better next season.
Mike Ashley has a wonderful chance of lighting up the City of Newcastle by funding Kevin’s plans in the transfer market this summer.
And if he and Kevin, with the help of Chairman Chris Mort can make Newcastle great again, it will be a tremendous achievement for Mike Ashley and how he’s used his vast wealth.
He’ll have done something really worthwhile with his money – and will be the toast of the city. We have a feeling that achievement will outdo any of his many successful business deals of the past.
The love of the Geordie Nation is something to behold.
We just cannot wait for that to happen.
