We have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by the recent interviews given by our young French winger, Charles N’Zogbia, since he’s been very upbeat about most things at the club, which is nice to hear in these still difficult times.
Charles N’Zogbia – we want to get 3 points for fans tomorrow
Charles has given another interview today to the Evening Chronicle and he started off by saying he is happy on Tyneside:
“I am happy here and we are picking up good results.” “We are playing our game at the moment and with plenty of confidence.”
“If we stay focused on what we are doing we can do well this season.” “Everybody is really up for playing Tottenham, it’s a game we have been looking forward to since coming home from Portsmouth.”
“It will be a good game.” “We will see what we can do, they are a good team but as I say we’re really confident and don’t fear anybody.”
Of course there have been recent rumors that Aston Villa may be after the youngster, and that wouldn’t surprise us because no doubt James Milner will have been singing his praises to Villa boss Martin O’Neill. And O’Neill will have been delighted at getting James, even though he had to cough up £12M for him.
There should be no way Newcastle should make another mistake and let another one of our young players, who joined us when he was just 18 years old, leave the club.
“Spurs are playing with confidence as well.” “And it will be a really hard game, but we want to play well at home.”
“We feel we can get the three points here.”
“The last two home games have been disappointing, but we can send the fans home happy this time.”
We expect Charles to keep his place tomorrow, because he deserves to, even though Irish International Damien Duff is now biding his time on the bench.
Competition is picking up for places in the side, but that’s very good news, after all.
