Oba Martins appears to have learned that being substituted during a match is part of the game of football these days.
Oba Martins – all smiles when substituted Saturday – we were ahead then
Hughton talked about Oba today:
“It’s all about emotions, and what Oba showed last week at Middlesbrough was that he was upset at being taken off, and sometimes you don’t mind that.“
“But what he showed against Stoke was respect for the fact that there are reasons you make changes – and that’s what we would expect from him.”
Oba is a firm fan favorite at St. James’ Park, because not only is he a good player who scores goals, but he gives 100% for the team in every game, and has often waxed lyrical about Newcastle, and we all like to hear that from our players. 😀
But Oba’s still just 24 years old and still maturing as both a person and a player, but we wouldn’t mind if we can extend Oba’s contract at Newcastle.
But there again the Newcastle club now has 7 players whose contracts run out in the summer, so the Newcastle Board will have to handle them as the priority.
We wonder when the Board are going to even start on this?
Time is quickly running out and they seem to be doing ……. nothing.
