Dan Gosling Waxes Lyrical About Massive Newcastle Club

Dan Gosling recently signed a four year deal with Newcastle United, who are back in the PL after a one year absence over the last 17 seasons, so as some of our readers have told us – we should hardly call ourselves PL newcomers.

Dan Gosling – obviously pleased to be at the Toon

Gosling has talked to BBC Newcastle about the aims of the Tyneside club this season:

“The main aim is to stay up,” “With the quality in the dressing room we should be staying up and it would be a disaster if we didn’t.”

“With the confidence and quality and the team spirit we’ve got I think we’ve got enough to stay up this year.”

Newcastle’s ambition seemed to play a role in Gosling’s decision to reject other clubs like West Ham and Sunderland to join the Magpies, but we are hardly as ambitious as we once were – but perhaps the club is more sensible and savvy these days.

The very fact that we got Dan at Newcastle for nothing, would at the very least suggest that.

Dan continued:

“It is a massive club, the fan base is huge and it is a club with great potential,”

“Obviously I spoke to the gaffer and the coaching staff and they all had a vision of climbing up the league over the next few years and I wanted to be part of that.”

“We’re on the same wavelength and I’m just happy to be here now.”

Well the lad is certainly down to earth and so pleased to be on Tyneside, and that’s what we want to maintain.

Newcastle should only sign players who want to come to the North East and play for a club with a fantastic fan following, and a huge tradition.

But whether we can really climb the PL and be successful over the next few seasons, only time will tell.  But obviously that’s what we are all hoping for, that’s for sure.

Comments welcome.
