Kinnear has put out the war cry today to his players, to win the game tomorrow at WBA, for Newcastle’s truly magnificent fans.
Joe Kinnear – do it for the fans tomorrow
The Dublin-born Irishman told The Newcastle Chronicle earlier today:
“People start becoming optimistic again when you win,”
“Our fans were fantastic against Sunderland, and they are the most important thing at this club.”
“They gave the team great support, and the lads received a good ovation at the end.”
“The only thing which disappointed me was the fact we did not win.” “We must start turning draws into wins,”
“We need another 14 points. Our target is 38 points, but that is achievable. We have games coming up which are winnable.”
Joe is hoping the major injury crisis, which we seem to get every season, is now over, and that hopefully Newcastle can start turning the season around, now that we also have 3 good players in during the transfer window.
Kinnear was also upbeat about last Sunday’s second half performance, when Newcastle dominated Sunderland for large periods of the last 45 minutes:
“I thought we had our second-half performance in the derby right,”
“We finished the game very strongly. Now we have to start well against West Brom.”
The Toon Army, Newcastle’s 12th man, will travel to West Brom tomorrow, with once again the ticket allocation (1200 tickets) having been completely sold out in Newcastle.
The game tomorrow is one of many 6 pointers that will be coming up.
