Geremi, one of Newcastle most experienced players, has surprisingly said the club’s problems over the last two weeks has nothing to do with the team’s loss of form.
Geremi – problems aren’t worrying players
Geremi talked to the Newcastle Journal this morning:
“We try not to think about things and just get on with our jobs,” “The problems are not affecting us. We just have a problem with a few injuries.”“We created some positive things. We created a few chances even when we were 2-0 down but conceded some bad goals.”
“The fans see no confidence in us,” “We have to show on Wednesday that is not the case. We have to stick together. We need the fans to help us win. We need that cup, it’s a way of qualifying for Europe.”
“It is still the beginning of the season. We have time to correct things and we can do it, not get down and start getting things together but Wednesday is a big game for us.”
The only team that has less points than Newcastle in the league after 5 games played is Tottenham, and that’s who we play in the Carling Cup on Wednesday evening. Spurs have not produced anything like the form they should be showing, given all the players they signed during the summer.
It’s hard to see how Newcastle can win the game on their current form, but they need to produce some much better form soon.
We hope that will be on Wednesday evening – but the way things are going right now, don’t hold your breath.
