Former Newcastle midfielder Ambrose was impressed by his former team in Saturday’s 2-0 win, and has tipped the Tyneside club to win promotion at the first attempt.
Darren Ambrose – they played like a Premier League side
Darren, who played over 40 times for Newcastle, went to Charlton Athletic, then back to Ipswich before ending up at Crystal Palace this summer.
Darren said today:
“They played like a Premier League side,” “They didn’t rush, they weren’t physical. They relaxed on the ball and I think that showed. I think they will go up automatically.”
“We have only played a few games but they have been the best team we have played so far. A team like Newcastle should never have been relegated in the first place. They are a massive club.”
“I had two-and-a-half years there and I enjoyed my time,” “I played under the great Sir Bobby (Robson) and really enjoyed myself so I am pleased to see them doing well. They are a massive club.”
“They should never have been in a position like this but they are dealing with it at the moment.”
We shouldn’t have been relegated but we were, and the only thing that matters now is getting back to the Premier League, and every single league win we get this long season, will take us closer to that goal.
It’s really that simple – we need win after win to ensure we get back at the very first attempt, and there can be no letting up.
