There is news again today that Oba Martins may sign an extended contract at Newcastle United.
Oba Martins – guess who just scored!
Oba by Kevin Keeganâ€™s own words is a one off, and you just never know what heâ€™s going to do, but heâ€™s an exciting player to watch.
But it seems like his friends back in Nigeria want him to play for a big four club.
â€œIn Nigeria they are calling me, they are asking if I will sign a new contract,â€ â€œThey say I should just go away, there are a lot of better teams.”
“But they donâ€™t understand; if you feel passion for a team, even if they have problems you have to help them out. For now Iâ€™m still playing here. For now.â€
â€œThey say this because I miss playing Champions League as well, but a lot of players here at Newcastle have played Champions League. Itâ€™s not only me.”
“Weâ€™re here now, we have to deal with it and try to help each other. Thatâ€™s the way Iâ€™m thinking.â€
Well, that doesnâ€™t sound too convincing to us, he’s staying for now. But we think Chris Mort will try to keep Oba at the club for a few more seasons, and weâ€™ll just have to hope that Kevinâ€™s magic starts to pay off next season, when we can at least finish much much higher in the league.
But most of the Newcastle players believe they are part of something big thatâ€™s brewing at Newcastle, and it’s not the beer. Itâ€™s because that maestro Kevin Keegan is back, and heâ€™s already showing that the team can play well, week in week out, and heâ€™s brought no new players in yet.
Roll on the last 3 games of the season and we just cannot wait for next season to start.
And weâ€™re sure that goes for Oba too.
