One Final Game That Chris Hughton Wants To Win


Chris Hughton seems determined that Newcastle will finish the season on a high note, when the lads take on QPR in London on Sunday afternoon.

Chris and Colin – fantastic season for these two coaches

Chris and Colin Calderwood have done a wonderful job of managing the club this season, and they really prepare the side well for each game.

And it will be no different on Sunday, because Chris will ensure there are no end-of-season hangovers – to use the word hangover rather loosely – on Sunday afternoon.

It would be great to go out with another away win and our 30th overall win of the season.  It will not be for the want of trying, that’s for sure, as Chris said today:

“What we’ve got to do is get ourselves up again.” “There are still targets to go for. We want to finish on a high, that goes without saying.”

“We know the emotions of the past two weeks, particularly on Saturday, but it’s back to business again.”

“We have a group of supporters going to watch the game, and of course it’s a game we want to get something from.”

“Anything other than a defeat will get us 100 points, which would be a nice way to end the season.”

All the teams on Sunday will kick-off at the same time, 1:00 pm, on the very last day of the season, and that was on purpose of course with games quite possibly involving promotion and/or relegation.

And when it’s all over that’s it, and we’ll again be part of the English Premier League, and can look forward to Newcastle bringing in some good players during the summer months.

Although we have to add here there appears no truth in the rumor that we are after a certain Lionel Messi from Barcelona – no truth in that one at all. 😀

And of course there’s also the World Cup in South Africa that begins June 11th and ends July 11th, and we’ll also look forward to the lads returning for pre-season training in July.

By that time we should have also seen the new strips from Puma, in addition to all the new training gear and casual wear from the new agreement between Puma and the Tyneside club.

So it does look like it’s going to be a busy, but very enjoyable and exciting summer, for Newcastle fans everywhere.

Such a welcome and positive change to last summer.

Comments welcome.
