Nicky Butt has said that he knows Newcastle United are in a relegation battle following their derby defeat at Sunderland.
Nicky Butt - Newcastle is a rollercoaster
Nicky said today:
“We are down there and part of that battle at the minute. We started the season on a high. The first three games we started well. It is a rollercoaster — as it is every year here.”
“West Brom is a must-win game now. Every game that comes to us now is a must-win.” “The longer you are in there the more desperate you get.”
Newcastle’s 2-1 loss to Sunderland was their first defeat on Wearside for 28 years, and given the conditions at the club – no Board, no permanent manager, club being sold – that’s not too surprising.
“There is bound to be a hangover. But having a game come so quickly is a big plus.”
Butt is right and we have seen all the headlines that the game against WBA tomnorrow night is a must win game.
Looks like Harry Redknapp is wasting to time in getting the best out of the Tottenham players, with his first win yesterday less than 24 hours after being appointed. It was Tottenham’s first league win of the season and took their points total from 2 points to 5points – in just one game.
Spurs won by 2-0 against Bolton yesterday – a clean sheet too – and we expect Harry to have Spurs up that table very quickly. But that’s only one of the reasons we have to start getting our act together in terms of actually winning games, starting tomorrow night against a mediocre WBA outfit.
