Newcastle United players Michael Owen and Steven Taylor have today praised stand-in coach Chris Hughton for the difficult job he’s been given at the club.
Owen and Taylor – praise coach Chris Hughton today – good for them
Chris must be feeling very lonely right now, and he only has Richard Money and rookie coach David Thompson to help him out, and it’s certainly a very difficult job for the Londoner.
Newcastle captain Michael Owen has today hailed the influence Chris has had on morale as he told nufcTV:
“Chris has done a fantastic job,” “It’s not an easy situation for anyone but he has boosted morale and has steadied the ship.”
It’s good for the coach to be publicly given some support himself, especially from the captain, as there seems precious little of anything coming from the Newcastle United Board, who we all assume are 300 miles away in London.
And Steven Taylor, who only yesterday said he had no plans whatsoever of leaving his home town club, has also come out in his praise for Chris adding:
“Chris has got the experience and he’s a fantastic coach to work with.” “I think all of the players respect him and that’s good for us. We are very comfortable with him.”
These are not empty words from the two Newcastle players, and this should help all our lads coalesce and come together for tomorrow’s Carling Cup tie, and a win would be fantastic for both the players and the fans.
Let’s go out and do it lads!
