Shola Ameobi is quite confident that Newcastle can get a much needed win against West Brom on Tuesday evening.
Shola Ameobi – showing excellent attitude
We’ve only had two wins this season, and they both came within a few days of each other. The 1-0 win at home against Bolton on Saturday 23rd August and then the incredible extra time 3-2 win at Coventry the following Tuesday.
But we haven’t won since then and in in those 8 games we’ve lost six and drawn two. In our last 7 league games we’ve lost 5 and drawn just two.
Certainly it’s about time we won a game.
Ameobi again played well yesterday and scored his second goal in a week, and second goal in two years for Newcastle United, and we wouldn’t be surprised if also scores against WBA.
West Brom at one point were interested in signing the 6’3” striker over the summer, and it’s a good chance for him to show then just how good he is.
Shola spoke a lot of sense today as he said:
“We have to pick ourselves up, there’s no question,” “We gave a performance on Saturday where we felt we could have won it, but it wasn’t to be.”
“But we have to look forward now and forget about that, which is sometimes hard to do.”
“We have to get over it, look forward to the next game and try to get maximum points, especially playing at home.”
“Hopefully, we can give another good performance and grab a win.””
That’s exactly the right attitude and hopefully our fans will still turn out in large numbers as we try to register our first win since August.
That will go a long way to upping the confidence of the lads, and having seen the game again today, it was anybody’s game right until the end, and only that superb strike from Richardson won the game for Sunderland.
The lads have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of for their performance yesterday in what was a tremendous game of football, even though we lost. Let’s give the players a little bit of slack – and let’s support the team big time on Tuesday evening.
Howay the Lads!!
