Mark Viduka – wanted all 3 points
Mark talked to the Evening Chronicle today:
â€œWe were happy to come away with a point in the end, but we were a bit disappointed with the way we played.â€ â€œI think from the start we didnâ€™t play as fluently as weâ€™d have liked.â€
â€œConsidering the score was 2-0, though, we came back well and showed some character. We didnâ€™t lose the game and thatâ€™s great, but we are disappointed not to have won the match.â€
But with players like Viduka, Owen and Oba Martins in the team this Newcastle side will always be able to score goals, like the Kevin Keegan teams of old at Newcastle.
And score we did with a wonderful opportunist goal from that man, Martins. Oba put us right back in the match with his great goal.
â€œI wouldnâ€™t like to think we were complacent.â€ â€œMaybe it was a subconscious thing. The conditions out there were very hot. We havenâ€™t played in heat like that for a long time.â€
â€œMaybe it got to us, but in the first half we werenâ€™t at the races.â€
There are just two game left in the season now, and both teams are in the top 5. Next Monday we play Chelsea at home and then the following Saturday we are away to Everton.
â€œWest Ham played very well, but we got a point and we can look ahead to Chelsea now.â€
â€œItâ€™s a big game, but we want to go out in front of our fans on a high.â€
It would be really good if we can finish the season without being beaten in our last two games. Indeed two wins is what we should be aiming for to try to rescue what has been a terrible season for both the club and the fans.
