Newcastle recorded their highest crowd of the season on Saturday as almost 44,000 fans flocked to see the Newcastle side’s 2-1 victory against Doncaster Rovers.
Chris Hughton – let’s all pull in the same direction
And on the morning following Chris Hughton’s appointment as permanent manager on Tyneside, he has come out and asked the fans to all pull in the same direction.
Chris may be worried of some isolated calls for a boycott at Newcastle, but that will absolutely no good, and we have to support the coach and the players just as much as we can – even if the clueless owner is still around.
It’s not Chris Hughton’s fault that Mike Ashley is so useless, or seems to go about trying to rile the Newcastle faithful – this time it’s to change the name of the hallowed St. James’ Park – does he do this on purpose we wonder.
Hughton told Newcatle United TV this morning:
“The fans have been magnificent this season.” “From the very first game they have been right behind the team.”
“The players and myself know what a difference that makes and it has gone a long way to getting us where we are now.”
“We knew it was going to be tough, and we’ve found that recently.” “But we’re still in a magnificent position at the top of the league.”
“And, if everybody can pull in the same direction like they have done so far, I’m confident that we’ll put this football club back where it belongs – that is the most important thing.”
Good words from Chris and we’re sure Newcastle fans will continue to flock to the ground – after all they made a huge difference on Saturday, as they almost willed the team to an unlikely victory.
