There’s lots of talk about Newcastle being relegated this morning, but we really think there’s not much chance of that, since our squad is so much better then it was last season.
Joe Kinnear – no chance Newcastle will be relegated
Joe Kinnear does not believe Newcastle will be relegated either, but he’s well aware now that he is the first Newcastle manager to lose at Sunderland in 28 years – and it’s clear he understand the magnitude of what that defeat means in the Newcastle area.
Joe spoke to the Newcastle Journal this morning:
“It is very difficult for me to come out with the right words which are suitable for the supporters because I know they must have gone home hurt and feeling low,”
“But I believe there was nothing between the two teams and I think if we carry on in the same vein we will win more games than we lose. The belief is still there that we can get out of this – this squad is too good to go down.”
“ You might have heard that before but I am telling you now, there is no chance. There are too many good quality players in this squad now we have got Jonas (Gutierrez) and Joey (Barton) back. I can only see things going forward.”
“Of course the league position is a worry and I am worried. I am concerned but I am also experienced enough to know this squad of players won’t go down.” “I also know we should not be talking about relegation at a club like this. We should be talking about the other end of the table.”
Kinnear also knows this is not a game to lose if he wants to keep his growing relationship with the Newcastle fans, but at least the lads fought all the way on Saturday, in what was a top class derby game after all.
But that means nothing when we get beaten, and the only thing to do now is to whip WBA tomorrow night, and we’re fairly confident we can do just that.
We expect Joe to have the lads ready for tomorrow night, and they will have forgotten about the Sunderland game, because it’s clear if we can hit the form we’ve shown in these last 3 games, then 3 points should be ours after Tuesday night’s game.
Howay the Lads!!
