Alan Smith epitomized the spirit and passion that was Newcastle United last night, and he seems more determined than ever to lead Newcastle back to the Premier League at the very first attempt.
Alan Smith – the spirit and passion of Newcastle United this season
And last night another 100% committed display from the captain, who has really found himself at the club this season.
And the gritty Yorkshireman won big applause from the Newcastle fans following a quick succession of stiff tackles very late in the game.
You talk about guts and glory.
Interim boss Chris Hughton says that the captain’s commitment was so important in getting all 3 points last night against The Foxes, which takes the famous Tyneside club to the top of the table.
Chris talked about his captain this morning:
“It was an excellent display,” “What we’ve got with Alan is that he’s enjoying a run of games for the first time in a long time.”
“He’s going to get fitter and fitter and better and better.” “His commitment is outstanding and I thought he really set the tone tonight.”
Great job by Alan again last night, and we are starting to get used to that now.
