Newcastle United boss Joe Kinnear has admitted that Michael Owen is our only hope we have of scoring against Liverpool today.
Michael Owen – all we have got today?
Joe said today:
“’What do you do besides pray? “
“But I’ve always had that nothing-to-lose mentality, especially for 10 years at Wimbledon. We won’t go down for lack of fighting, that’s for sure.”“Michael is the only striker we’ve got and he needs to be at his best. We’re just looking for him to come up trumps now, to be honest.”
“We’ve only got Michael and AN Other – and that’s Andy Carroll. There is no other striker. But Michael is used to pressure.”
There’s some reverse psychology in there, that Andy will get and he should be going all out to get a goal today, to prove his manager wrong.
Andy looked good at Wigan and he will need to impose himself on the game with martins, Ameobi and Viduka all out injured.
But the lads will need to go all out today to try to get some points, because the league is so tight at the moment.
Our two successive wins had things going great, but on the other hand two successive defeats will have the opposite effect.
And we can do without that – at the end of what has been a terrible year for Newcastle fans.
Howay The Lads!!
