Chris Hughton Bringing The Newcastle Club Together


Chris Hughton will now turn his attention to the rather tough game the lads will face on Saturday afternoon at Wolves.

Chris Hughton – good work on Newcastle team bonding

Chris told the Evening Chronicle today:

“I’m certain there will be team changes for the weekend! We have got exactly what we wanted out of the game though, and overall we are really happy with it.’ “But Saturday is a different game again.”

Hughton was delighted with the application of his young side at Accrington, and rightly so, and he is now looking forward to the third round draw of the Carling Cup on Saturday and the tough game at Wolves on Saturday afternoon.

Hughton spoke after the good 3-2 win last night:

“It was a tough night but we could have made life more comfortable for ourselves.” “But that’s the nature of the cup.” “We were probably hanging on a bit at the end but overall we are pleased, we’re delighted.”

“We thought it was going to be a helter skelter cup tie and it proved to be exactly that.” “There were many positives to come from the game.”

“Shola, Peter and Ryan Taylor were great examples to the younger players.” “I’m pleased for the ones like James Tavernier, Shane Ferguson and Haris Vuckic who haven’t tasted much first-team experience.”

What we saw last night was a Newcastle squad in complete unison, with experienced players Alan Smith, Joey Barton and Kevin Nolan watching while sitting on a brick wall at the Crown ground – and seeming to enjoy the game.

And for their part the youngsters on show last night, had obviously learned from their elders at the Newcastle club, as they showed the same commitment and passion the senior team has shown so far this season.

It says something very good about Chris Hughton’s management capabilities, that he has been able to get all the players playing their hearts out for the Newcastle club in just a short 13 months.

A win on Saturday and we’ll be doing  just great.

We love it!

    “HBA on his way, Marseille finally given the green light & no way back this time #nufc”

    The bloke just posted that, altho as others have said he could well be full of sh*t. Soon see I guess.

    I’m at Marseille International airport, on my way back to New Zealand. I saw Ben Arfa, or a good look alike getting out of a limo sort of a cab.

    Don’t know what that means. Bremen or Newcastle. Take your pick.

    Good day 🙂

    Got to admire your unshakable faith toonnruz. I hope for you it comes off.

    I had my doubts about Hughton and tbh that will probably re-surface if we hit a bad patch, but he does seem to have something about him and has got the players playing for him – the first sign of a good manager.

    He will definitely sign. the only thing I’m more sure of is that he won’t sign. Unless he does.

    HBA don´t care anymore. think K. Nolan is as good as him, and will provide us with 12-15 goals this year as well.

    CH is doing a great job, and by picking a team starting XI of almost 11 youngsters will have filled them with confidence and to win will have done them the world of good.

    And at the same time CH has had the chance to have a better look at the youngsters in action in a competitive match.

    Good news all round

    “They propose to exercise the option to purchase if Hatem plays 25 games and pay 5% of FIFA. We will respond. Second, to Hatem to agree with them. It must be done with it as soon as possible with this whole, “says Jean-Claude Dassier in the daily Provencal.

    On Ben Arfa to Newcastle

    I just went up to one of the counters and asked them if there is any record of Ben Arfa traveling today and where to. They give me the stalker look and proceeded to give me the typical ‘can’t distribute information about any other passengers’ pep talk. haha. oh well worth the try. Hope he signs for us tho.
