Ameobi Lifts Lid On Chaos Behind The Scenes At Newcastle


Shola Ameobi has lifted the lid on events behind the scenes at Newcastle.

Shola Ameobi – chaos as players haven’t a clue what’s going on

Yet that huge uncertainty over the last couple of months has created a team spirit and we may yet be able to make an immediate return to the Premier League.

Ameobi said:

“I was unsure I would still be here at this point. As players we didn’t know what was going on. There is still time left and we still don’t know what is going on.”

“How do you overcome the uncertainty over your future? We are professionals. We play football. That is what we have to focus on. Chris Hughton and Colin Calderwood have focused us on that.”

“They have told us from the beginning. What we do once we cross the white line is the only way we can affect things here. It has not been easy to concentrate on your football when you hear you might be going somewhere else. But if you’re here, you just get on with it.”

“The players that are here want to do everything they can. That has been there since the start of July. They have wanted to give their all for the cause. This is one of the tightest squads I’ve known here.”

“We haven’t got many players and the players we have got we have to make sure we stay fit, healthy and we cope and pull in the same direction.”  “It is a difficult league to get out of, but if we give our all, our class should show in this league.”

Ameobi suffered a stress fracture of a bone in his foot in Newcastle’s Carling Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday 11 days ago,and we’d be surprised if he plays any part tomorrow night against Leicester.

But the depleted nature of Newcastle’s squad means he will make an immediate return against Leicester tomorrow.

Shola continued:

“You have to play through the pain. I’ve done it in the past and will do it again. But we do need players.”

“I felt in the summer after Mark Viduka, Michael Owen and Oba Martins had gone that I could seize the moment.” “I am the guy that is entrusted to lead the line and I’m enjoying that.”

“I always believe if I am given the role in the team I can contribute. It was a massive disappointment going down as a Newcastle fan.”  “I don’t want to see Newcastle in this division but we are here.”

“We deserve to be here. I believe I can contribute to us getting back into the Premier League.”  “I made that decision to do everything to help us get back up. And so did the rest of the players.”

Anything but a defeat against Leicester on Monday night will see Newcastle top of the league over the International break.

But one thing that is not so obvious is that if Newcastle are beaten, Leicester will become joint top of the league with WBA.

We just cannot afford a defeat tomorrow, and we have to go all out for the 3 points.

If we can win our next 2 games – the one in two weeks is at Cardiff City, don’t be surprised if we start to get full houses at the St. James’ Park Cathedral very soon.

Comments welcome.

    Spot on Shola, lets not forget he did play for some time with an injury with little or no complaints and at a time we were giving him some serious stick.

    I back Geordie Cobbler here as well, if he comes out of the championship as top scorer i would back him to carry on that form in the premiership.
    His goal against Shef Wed was top notch and would have been good in any league I’d say!

    Shola had numerous opourtunities in the premier league and always blew it!
    True, he did carry injuries over the last couple of seasons and nobody can argue he is commited to NUFC.
    He has found his level in this league and hopefully will go on to score 20+ goals for us this season.

    To be fair Cobbler, Shola has had a few good runs in the team over the years.
    I think most would agree hes never gonna be a Shearer or Ferdinand!
    At the minute we need Shola and hes doing the business and scoring, so we should get behind him.

    Stunned by you complete idiots who are slamming shola. It has to be one extreme or the other with fools dunnit. Shola is what he is… inconsistent. Fine, doesn’t mean he has to be our top man next season OR sold… he will be what he has always been – a decent enough back up – 1 of 4 squad strikers.
