Ameobi Wishing And Hoping For Good Times Ahead

Shola Ameobi has had a good season, even though he’s been out for a while through injury.

Shola Ameobi – start of something big?

While we always have to remember it’s the English second division, Shola got off to a great start last August and was Newcastle’s best player in August when he bagged 5 goals.

Shola now has 10 goals in 11 starts and 20 appearances for Newcastle this season, and he’s looked very good for Newcastle this season.

But Shola is hoping, like every other Newcastle fan, that this can be the start of a new successful era at Newcastle.

Shola  said today:

“Hopefully this can be the start of a great era for us. Hopefully it isn’t the last medal I will win and I will be looking to get a friend for it in the next few years.”

“It’s about consolidation now. It has been a long hard road from last May – we don’t want that type of disappointment again.”

“We want to make sure we stay in the Premier League again. We have to make sure we are on top of our game next season and stay on it.”

“We have the players here now but we aim to get a bit more quality in during the summer.”

We are hoping that Chris Hughton turns out to be a very unlikely, but successful manager on Tyneside.

He’s served his time with 14 years as a back-up coach who could hardly have done better this season – in his rookie season in charge.

And we remember the great Bob Paisley at Liverpool, who was at the Liverpool club 35 years as a player, physiotherapist and assistant manager before taking over as manager in 1974 from the retiring Bill Shankly.

And Bob won Manager of the year 6 times in the next 8 seasons, and took Liverpool to 3 European Championships while he was in charge.

Bob was also a quite man, much like Chris Hughton, and was born 8 miles from Newcastle in Hetton-le-Hole.

We’re not saying Chris will do  that well, of course, but if he can get us to middle of the table next season – that will be a great start back in the Premiership for Newcastle United.

Howay The Lads!!

    Ameobi what the hell are going to do to earn it? Stay fit and score 20 goals? You’ve not done that in your career yet.

    Not sure he’s cut out for it.

    We’ve tried to flog him to Championship clubs while we were in the prem and they didn’t seem to think he was worth the money.

    Might be useful as a back up. I remember when Kinnear took over last season, Shola scored in two games on the bounce, one of those was against Man City when we were down to ten men.

    He had a decent showing this season, hopefully good enough for some championship clubs to take interest in him.

    Shola has had a long career in Newcastle, but in my opinion it’s time to let him go. He doesn´t cut in the PL. The statistics says it all, as well as his injury problems.

    Shola gets slated,sometimes for nowt .He is injury prone [very!],But he can score in the Premier League.He’s had 101 starts [in pl] and scored 26.In Europe he’s had 18 starts and scored 6.Some good assists too, [big Als record breaking goal] and Joses,f,,,ing calms as well re penaltys.Theres not many 20 goal a season merchants out there [Owen has never scored 20 in a season in his career].If people looked at the facts instead of getting in a ‘feeding frenzy’ .
