Alan Smith is really looking forward to life back in the Premiership, and the very first game against his former club Manchester United.
Alan Smith – important player for Newcastle next season
Alan Smith seems to be quietly confident that his Newcastle team can do well when they return to the Premier league next season.
Alan Smith told the Newcastle official website.
“Going back to any of your previous clubs is always a special moment,” “And having got back into the Premier League, Manchester United away is a nice one to start with.”
“We’re looking forward to the Premier League knowing that we need to be fitter and stronger, and the lads have come back focused and in good shape ready for the new season.”
“We’re quietly confident inside the camp about what we can achieve and we’ve got to do ourselves proud and carry the momentum with us from last season.”
If Newcastle can show the same team spirit and fight that they showed in spades last season, then we have to think the lads can get some good results, mostly at home, but could fight to get some unexpected points away from St. James’ Park too.
That’s one thing that gives us some confidence about how well the lads can do next season – the tremendous team spirit and mental strength of our players.
But there were many times last season when the lads fought back from poor positions and managed to pick up points, and that will be something that will be so important to get us to safety next season, back in England’s top league.
Team spirit and mental strength is something of course the England team had none of in South Africa.
Comments very welcome.
