Shola Ameobi is the man of the moment at Newcastle right now, and it will stay like that if Shola continues to bang in the goals like he’s done so magnificently these last couple of games.
Shola Ameobi - delighted at scoring another goal!
Of course Newcastle fans have had a love-hate relationship with Shola over the years, but fans are delighted that Shola has looked so good this season in the second tier in England.
However, Shola is starting to get worried that time is running out to bring new players in, and we’ll have 3 games in the next 11 days, and the Nigerian born player wants to see some new signings.
Newcastle are still in negotiations with both Sol Campbell and Peter Lovenkrands to increase the size of their squad, and both players would be very good acquisitions for the club.
Ameobi told the Evening Chronicle today:
“We haven’t got many players.” “I thought that showed. There are a lot of heavy legs.”
“There’s a lot of games, and we haven’t got many players to rotate.” “The games are coming thick and fast, and we had to dig deep now.
“We haven’t been used to playing back-to-back games like that, but we ground it out and produced the win.” “It (last night) wasn’t a performance like Saturday – it was a different type of game.”
“We had to grind it out, and we’re delighted to have come out with another win.”
And Shola talked about his 4th goal in 2 games last night, that had the huge crowd of close to 44,000 erupting after just 15 minutes, as Shola took his chance beautifully:
“With a lot of goals, you can catch the keeper out by taking it early, and I think that was the case.”
“There wasn’t that much space to squeeze through, but thankfully it slipped by him.”
“For strikers, goals breed confidence. That’s nothing new.” “I’m obviously delighted to have contributed.”
“I’ve got a lot of confidence and, hopefully, I can ride it and help us win as many games as possible.”
We hope Shola can continue on his goals streak, and there’s no reason why the Geordie lad cannot hit 20 goals this season.
And if he contributes to getting Newcastle promoted, that would be just great for the club and for Shola.
Howay The Lads!!
