Newcastle Fans Will Play Big Part Again Tonight

Joe Kinnear seems reasonably confident that his players can get their second home win in a week tonight – but he again stresses the Newcastle crowd will be an important factor for the players.

Newcastle United Fans – can play big part tonight

Joe talked today to the official Newcastle United site:

“The confidence is high after the West Brom win and we’ve had a good week on the training field,” “Aston Villa are a good side with a lot of very good, young players.”

“But we’re starting to get a few of our players back and the likes of Joey Barton and Jonas Gutierrez are making a difference.” “When we’ve got our best players out there we can beat anyone.”

“A win against Villa would be massive and we’ll certainly be going for the three points.” “The fans again will play a big part.”

“With them behind us, like they were against West Brom, is a huge help to the players.” “The fans up here are amazing and they really are the 12th man for us.”

As we’ve said before, it would be nice to have close to a full house tonight, because whatever has gone on at the club since early September, it’s hardly the players’ fault, who have been left in the dark as much as the fans.

The team deserves the full support of the best football supporters in the land.

We know that will happen again tonight, and could be the difference between winning and losing this game, it’s that important.

Howay The Lads!!

    yeah they have alot of good young players – there last one sold to them by us of course. i hope we win as we need it badly. these are the sort of games that we should feel full of confidence in winning not full of trepidation. it seems mad that we are underdogs against vile at our own ground. thats how far behind we have fallen. i dont think that ashleys demands for a top four will develop this season thats for sure!

    Please lads and lasses, please don’t fall into the media trap of venting against JK, Ashley or any of the players.

    The team need 150% support against a team on a good run and with a very capable maneager in O’Neil.

    Let’s have lots of positives, no leaks at the back and Oba and Owen… can we have a bagfull of goals please!!

    Howaaaaay the toooooooooonnnnn!!

    I’ll be there and cheering on the toon when we go 2-1 up.
    But I am sick to the back teeth of being told that we will be a big part in any fixture we have, because thats all us Geordies have ever done!
    The players all arrogant moneygrabbers!
    Hope we win though:)

    I wish Kinnear would stop yapping on! especially about Kevin Keegan! Just pick a team and get them ready for the game for god’s sake.

    He is mouthing off about Mike Ashley pouring money into the club and how the poor diddums cant bring his kids to the game anymore!!

    The last thing Kinnear wants to do is side with Mike Ashley!

    We are the only club in the premier league wh0 has the continental management structure in place! it clearly isnt working!

    Ashley could get himself in the good books if he done what spurs did and ditch wise and owl face lliambias. Also get rid of Kinnear and get a good manager in. van Gaal or Houlier!

    Credit must go to Kinnear for taking the job but he is now tripping himself up in interviews. First he says he is here for 6-8 games. Now he is saying he is on a month to month contract and thats what was agreed at the beginning. He said the club was close to being sold and the new structure would bring back Keegan and Shearer. Now he is trying to big up Ashley by saying the might not be sold!

    Kinnear! stop broadcasting everything Ashley is telling you to say! You will quickly lose our backing if you side with Wise and Ashley!

    We are bottom of the league because of Ashley not having a clue about how to run a club and picking plonkers with dubious credentials to run it. A ludicrous lack of investment in the team hasnt helped either. We are the only club with the continental management structure. Spurs and Newcastle found themselves bottom of the league! the 2 teams with the continental way! is that a coincedence?

    Daniel levvy realised it wasnt working and done something about it. We however are being ran by an invisible board with a yes man manager (ahem) dark times!!!!!!

    cheers Craig! its getting bleaker by the week for me. I read an article by neil farrington in the sunday sun saying how the club boycotting merchandise and drinks etc is damaging our prospects of finding a buyer. He also reckons it has very little impact on Mike Ashley! First of all, I have seen with my own eyes the hordes of people buying pints and pies so I am not so sure there is any form of boycott happening! What farrington failed to realise is the attendances being down by 5k in the last 2 games. That will only get worse over the coming weeks unless something is done! I am pretty sure Mike Ashley will start to suffer then! And far from putting off potential buyers it would probably strengthen their abilitys to bargain with the fat head!

    Broon Ale and craig chisholm – no matter how much I agree with your analysis of the situation behind the scenes, I’m dispairing of what you seem to think will help.

    Neil Farrington was dead right! We’ve made our point, it’s been accepted and Ashley is trying to sell. On what planet will it help that process if buyers see boycotts and protests now??

    For chrissakes, can we accept that we’ve made our point and that more protests are just damaging our chances of getting what we want?? Get back to supporting, the lot of you.

    whumpie, if i agreed with what you said i would do exactly as you say and get behind the team etc. problem is though, i dont think for a second that he is trying to sell us with any real intention. i think that he has a fixed price that he will sell for and that price is well over inflated so that it would mean that only daft twats with too much money would buy. ashley is keeping his word, yes, he is trying to sell….but is he really? i think not. everything is a load of bollocks and stinks to the rafters. if it were as simple as you say then yes, i agree. its not though and we therefore need to start protesting again. cashley thinks its all blown over nad he will get on with it, thats why he is instructing jk to let it slip that ‘ashley might well now keep tyhe club’. do not trust jk for a second. he is no different to the rest, a wide boy feeding us crap.
    besides, what are we actually supporting now in newcastle? ashley, liambias and wise? no thianks. mant of our newcastle players will slap in trans requests in january and leave. perhaps if enough leave ashley will not mind us being in the coca cola league as that is where we are heading… and it will not stop there either.

    I totally get what you’re saying and think you could be – COULD BE – correct in your assessment of the club sale situation. BUT there are two things would-be protesters need to ask themselves:

    1. Are you really going to act based on that assumption? Can you not see that you could be wrong and that as a result you could be making the situation a lot worse?

    2. How exactly will it help the club sell? Can you explain a mechanism by which it will cause anything to improve?

    If there are more protests at this point it can only cost us points AND buyers. Even if Ashley is holding out for a higher price, how exactly is a protest going to INCREASE the perceived value of the club and get buyers more interested??

    Yes, I trust these blokes as far as I can spit ’em, but I also know enough about business to see that protests will do nowt but harm.

    The thread/article is about the support – so I’ve got my trusty ‘supporter soap-box’ out, as has our learned friend craig.

    I think there are other threads on the site about team selection, etc.

    (How arsey does that sound?? Sorry – not meant to be!)

    I do think a very big cheer for Milner would make a good statement…
