Steve Harper thinks that Newcastle United Football Club can have a good season starting in August.
Steve Harper – looking forward to Newcastle having good season
The 33-year-old goalkeeper, who has been at the club 15 years, is out of contract next June, but he hopes to sign a new deal at the club, which would keep him at St James Park probably for the rest of his career.
Steve told the Evening Chronicle:
“Realistically we are looking at the top eight but hopefully it can be the top six.”
“We finished 12th last year. And we’ve got to get back into the top half of the table.â€
“It won’t happen overnight. We have to first look to get back in the top six at some stage and then build year on year.”
Harper will have a massive battle with his friend Shay Given, for the goalkeeper jersey next season, and it promises to be a very close battle, with Harper having been in brilliant form over the last 10 games or so of the season.
We’ve put up a new poll asking who will be first choice goalkeeper next season between Shay and Steve.
