Newcastle Players Talk A Lot More Now

One of the many things Joe Kinnear confronted when he came on board at Newcastle, were the players were very quiet in the dressing room.

Fabricio Coloccini – starting to play very well again at Newcastle

But it seems that Joe has solved that problem and the players are a lot more willing to say what they think these days.

Joe told the local Sunday Sun today:

“The lads here are prepared to talk now,” “Keeping quiet is maybe a continental thing, but everyone has to be aware what their job is.”

“We used to almost have fights in the Wimbledon dressing room after some games.” “Sometimes you can hurt players’ feelings, but it’s all part of being a professional.”

“Some of them can be a bit precious, but it’s part and parcel of making them better players.”

We do have good team spirit in the squad but that will be tested after our Sunderland defeat. But we think on Tuesday evening, the lads will come out like a runaway train in order to get Joe’s first win at Newcastle, and that will do a lot to raise the spirits of the Newcastle fans.

We think there are enough fighters in this Newcastle squad, who will not let the Sunderland defeat effect us too much, and a game on Tuesday is exactly whet we need to get it out of our system.

A win will get us right back on track.   😀

Howay the Lads!

    How about dropping Butt for Barton vs WBA? Butt has cost us a lot of goals with stupid fouls this season, he’s not really offering much going forward either so I think he should be dropped.

    Play Jonas for Geremi as well, against WBA we need attacking flair.

    Given; Beye, Coloccini, Taylor, Bassong; Jonas, Guthrie, Barton, Duff; Ameobi, Martins

    The Big Butt bashing is tiresome, though I do agree that we should be looking at a more dynamic midfield from now on (Spider/Barton/Futhrie/Zog for example).

    It’s refreshing to hear staff and players talking now anyway.

    By the way, I’ve just read the headline about Spurs appointing Rednapp. They’ll be okay now (sadly!).
    I just hope we can haul ourselves up to, say, 14th by the time a new owner takes over. We have the players to do that if we focus and don’t lose an ounce of faith when we lose a game.

    Joe trying to turn us into Wimbledon off the pitch, judging from the long ball rubbish he has us playing he’s trying to do it on the pitch too.
