Joe Kinnear Wants Two More Newcastle Wins In A Row

You cannot accuse Joe Kinnear of not being positive, and not challenging his players with good and realistic targets.

Joe Kinnear – wants two more wins on the trot

Joe now challenges his players to put two back to back victories together against Fulham away on Sunday afternoon, and then Wigan Athletic at home, a week tomorrow.

If we can do that we’ll be flying, and Joe may even be in with a decent chance of continuing as manager through the end of the season. We’ll have put 4 victories together on the trot, and whatever happens at the Chelsea game – most other teams are getting taken apart at Stamford Bridge, including Sunderland and Middlesbrough – that wouldn’t matter too much.

The Chelsea game will be a good chance to see just how strong we have become under Joe’s management, and see if we can at least give the London side a game and make it competitive.

Joe has set his sights on two more wins on the trot as he told the Newcastle official web -site today:

“Our two wins have been fantastic and have done wonders for confidence,” “But now the challenge is to put two more wins together against Fulham and Wigan.”

“It’s very tight down there and any team who string together a couple of victories can climb out of it.” “At the same time, that puts pressure on other teams who get sucked in.”

“After the next two matches we’ll have another look at it and see where we are.” “If things go well that could be the top eight.”

“It will be tough at Fulham but we are more than capable of getting a win.” “It’s a crucial stage of the season and it’s important to build momentum.”

Last week, before the Villa game we had an article out that was headlined Newcastle’s 6 Points From next 3 Games

We had thought, in that article, that we could win the games against Fulham and Wigan, but were a little dubious of getting anything out of the Villa game.

But we won that game, so we pleased to be wrong (again), and we must press ahead and the players hopefully will give 100% in our next two games, because two wins is not beyond us, and then we should be in a decent position in the league.

Not too high though, in case Mike Ashley puts the price of the club up.

Howay The Lads!

    Fulham have not scored many goals this season, so I hopping for a clean sheet and three points.

    We need to step up and take Fullham apart. I think we are still in a very dangerous position and could easily find ourselves back in the bottom three if we dont take 3 points. Tough for fullham as they most likely will be but our will and skill has to be better than theirs.

    We have a better team than Fullham or Wigan but need to watch for one or two quality midfielders at fullham and Zaki at Wigan as I dont think they have anyone who can match Martins. Owen, Barton, Duff and Jonas for attack.

    Those 5 sound good together dont they?

    The Fulham game on Sunday is a game we can win if we play with the same passion as we did against Villa.

    The team is good enough to tear Fulham apart if JFK prepares them mentally for the game. Part of me says a Newcastle win (and we should win as we have a much better team than Fulham) another part tells me a draw!!!

    With the same effort and determination that was shown against Villa, I think the score line will be exactly the same. A 2 – 0 win for the mighty mags!!!!
