Chris Hughton has talked today about Newcastle’s decent start to the season, and he says he’s pleased with the way things have gone so far.
Chris Hughton – pleased with the way things have gone
Hughton told the Shields Gazette today:
“It’s very satisfying, not so much for me, but for the group of lads in the dressing room,”
“We all know what the club means and what has happened. There have been some difficult times, and there have been lots of rumours which are unsettling for the players.”
“We’ve had to work through it all. They’ve been excellent through all of that. I think for the players, it’s incredibly pleasing.”
“It was an exciting game which would have been great for the neutral, and anybody who watched it on TV. Reading certainly played their part.”
“They’re a young side and played with plenty of energy. They’ll be right up there and battling for promotion.”
“Towards the end of the game we looked confident, but we know every game will have its own obstacles, and I’m sure Sheffield Wednesday (on Wednesday night) will be very difficult.”
There’s no doubt the players have done well in their first two games in the Championship and we’re currently 3rd top.
We need another win on Wednesday night at home against Sheffield Wednesday, and if we can beat Crystal Palace in London on Saturday afternoon, we’ll be in very good shape indeed.
Then we’ll have to hope that Mike Ashley is on his way by then.
