Michael Owen seemed happy to get all 3 points on Sunday, and said the Newcastle dressing room was a happy one after the game against Portsmouth, with Newcastle players punching the air.
Michael Owen – happy dressing room after game
Michael told nufcTV today:
“Points wise the win at Portsmouth lifted us a few places.” ”
There are a few teams on 18 points and our win took us to 19 and above them so psychologically that was nice.”
“Now we are going into the Christmas period and we have some tough games to play.”
“Tottenham at home is a big game for us. If we can get three points again then it will be a nice way to celebrate Christmas.”
Owen took his goals for the season up to 9 in just 15 appearances, and of course he got the all important first goal from a great pass from Argentine winger Jonas Gutierrez, who had intercepted a wayward Portsmouth pass in midfield.
Michael now has 29 goals in 62 appearances while he’s been at Newcastle, which is even more impressive since he’s been in and out the side with injuries. Just think what he could do with a full season at the club, with minimal injuries.
“It was a happy dressing room at the end.”“
It’s always great to go in after winning at a tough place and everyone has a smile on their face and is punching the air.”
“It brings everyone together.”
Another win against Tottenham next Sunday, will also have the Newcastle fans very happy, because a winning streak over Christmas is exactly what we need to take us into the January transfer window.
