In a nice gesture after the game yesterday hat-trick hero Shola Ameobi dedicated his first hat-trick ever at Newcastle to Sir Bobby Robson.
Sir Bobby Robson – Shola dedicated his hat trick to Bobby yesterday
Shola scored all 3 goals in Newcastle’s rather easy win over a lack-luster reading side at St. James’ Park yesterday and he looked good.
Lots of fans have expected Shola to star in the Championship because he seems that kind of honest player and we are hoping he can get even a 20 goal haul this season, which the side will need if we are the challenge for promotion.
Shola of course played under Sir Bobby Robson at Newcastle and said after the game yesterday:
“Considering the man we were remembering today, I think its only fitting I dedicate my goals to Sir Bobby.”
“He was a great influence on my career and for me it was a fantastic way to repay him.”
“We have a dedicated penalty taker but I was fortunate enough to be given the job. It was a great way to open my account for the season and a great way to start our home program.”
“This was a tremendous team effort.”
Good words from Shola and a fitting tribute to the great man.
