It seems like Joey Barton is just delighted to be back in the fray, and he cannot stop talking. Some of us also have that problem, especially after a Newcastle win. 😀
Joey barton – wants to make St. James’ Park a fortress again
Joey told nufcTV today:
“As a team we want to achieve something and this win is the first step,” “But there is a lot of hard work still to be done and there will no doubt be ups and downs.”
“But hopefully we can get some decent results and bring a bit of stability to the club and climb the table.” “It only takes two or three wins and you find yourself comfortably in the top half.”
“We have to make this place (St. James’ Park) a fortress.” “When the crowd come in their thousands, like they do every week, they become very vocal and this is an intimidating place to play.”
“I’ve played here with Man City and this is not a nice place to come when you’ve got 52,000 Geordies roaring their team on.”
“If they can guarantee us that then we can guarantee we’ll put that extra effort in.”
Good words from Joey, but of course that’s what everybody generally says – make St. James’ Park a fortress and in our successful days we alwats had a great home record and full houses.
We’ve dropped a bit off the full house since the debacle at the end of the transfer season, but it’s hard to criticize the fans for this. However, if the lads are willing to put in the effort, and we know Joe is still working his socks off, it would be great to get sell out crowds again.
But it’s hard being a Newcastle united supporter, as everybody knows, but we think we have an excellent chance of pucking up points in the next 3 games, starting with our toughest game at St. James’ Park next Monday.
We’d be happy even with a point form that game, but a win would be terrific.
