Some good words about Newcastle United Football club and since it’s not from Joe Kinnear or The Newcastle United Blog, we thought we’d better publish it – quickly.
Tony Adams – Newcastle need rub of the green
Tony Adams has said that he believes Joe Kinnear’s style of football can help Newcastle United force their way into the Premier League’s top 10 this season.
Portsmouth manager Adams remembers well the games he played against Wimbledon, when Joe was managing the London side, often referred to as the “Crazy Gang” in those days.
Kinnear brings his Newcastle United to Fratton Park tomorrow with the Tyneside club having gone four draws on the trot, two at home and two 0-0 results away to Chelsea and Middlesbrough. But it’s still 5 games without a win for the Magpies – and we have no away wins at all this season.
Adams said today:
“His teams were very direct and physical and you had to get your helmet on playing against them.”
“Joe has earned the right to be there. I do not want to see anyone in this game lose their job and be left unemployed – it happens too often.”
“Newcastle just need to get a bit of the rub of the green, string some results together and they could be up there.”
“Maybe they will finish above Hull and stay in the top 10.”
Maybe we’ll get some of that tomorrow against Portsmouth and get our very first away win of the season – here’s hoping. 😀
