The lads did us proud yesterday, and while we’ll keep our feet firmly on the ground, yesterday’s performance and result was very pleasing for Newcastle fans.
Shola Ameobi – 3 good goals yesterday
Pleasing because we have now got 4 points from our first 2 games with 3 points there for the taking at St. James’ Park on Wednesday night if we can put in a similar performance.
Pleasing because it looked so easy once that first goal went in, when it looked a little like Shola had mis-headed a great strong cross from the left by Jose Enrique.
But we’ll not say that, because Shola was the hero with another 2 goals and he was at his unplayable best yesterday.
We have to hope Enrique stays at the club because he is full of fight and vigor, and will only get better on Tyneside, and he even likes the weather in Newcastle so he’s obviously got to stay. 😀
And the defense looked comfortable with Coloccini having a solid game against weak opposition, but a good display like he put in yesterday will look good to the scouts at the game.
Gutierrez looked good but his lad will never score a lot of goals. Even when he was clean through in the first half, he didn’t even shoot, and anybody else in that position surely would have scored.
The lad should take a ball one on one with the goalkeeper for two hours every day in training until he can put the ball in the net most of the time.
It looks like Portsmouth may be interested in the player, and if we can recuperate the £5M we paid Real Mallorca we think Jonas will be on his way.
It looks like Newcastle players like Taylor (both), Nolan, Barton, Enrique, and some of the others are a cut above Championship level, and with the fight the lads have shown so far, they’ve done well in the first two games.
Home games are going to be really important this season, and we need another 3 points on Wednesday when Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors.
The players need to keep doing their talking on the pitch this season.
Howay The Lads!!
