Newcastle Hope To Win The Championship Tonight

Danny Simpson seems to have been interviewed during the 9 hour trip yesterday, when the Newcastle United coach left at 1:00 pm from Benton, and arrived in Plymouth at 10:00pm.

Danny Simpson – wants to win league tonight

Automatic promotion was clinched on April 5th, when Nottingham Forest only drew with Cardiff City, and it would be nice if Newcastle can win the game tonight, or even draw thew game, and that will mean that Newcastle will most definitely be going up as Champions.

So Newcastle are in a great position to win the title tonight, and if they do they will no doubt celebrate in front of the many loyal Newcastle fans who will have made the very long trip to Plymouth by road or rail yesterday or today.

Simpson said:

“We won promotion without even kicking a ball.”“It is therefore nice going into tonight’s match knowing if we win or draw we can celebrate properly at the end of the game.”

“We are in a great position to become champions.”  We are happy to be back in the Premier League, but we all want to win a medal and Plymouth is never an easy place to go to.”

“The last time we played there the pitch was in a bad condition, and that was in the middle of the season, so I cannot imagine what it is like now.”

“Plymouth need points to stay up, but the way we are now with our confidence – home and away – we want to keep our run going until the end of the season. We do not want to lose our remaining matches.”

Indeed if Plymouth don’t win the game tonight, they will be relegated to League One.

We don’t expect the game tonight to be easy, and Newcastle will need to be at their professional best to win this match.

But that’s one of the very pleasing things about our team this season, that it’s a rarity when they are not ready to play, and they have respected every team in the Championship this season.

Things will be no different at Plymouth Argyle tonight.

Comment welcome.

    I think one of the reasons chris wants to play the same sort of side through to the end is to get into the team that psyhcological edge of winning. So much of every game is down to how players respond to good and bad situations and times of stress and pressure and I think Chris is building a team that is maybea bt more mentally strong than technically. We are physical though so that combined withe right attitude will, fingers crossed, help us stay us this year
