Chris Hughton has come out today and told Newcastle fans what they already know, and have been suffering from all week – Newcastle’s result against Blackpool was a massive disappointment.
Chris Hughton – Blackpool result a massive disappointment
Chris Hughton knows that Newcastle will need to be a lot more clinical with their chances on Saturday at Goodison Park, if they want to get anything at all out of that game, as he said today:
“It was a massive disappointment and that’s not taking anything away from a very good Blackpool team on the day,”
“But I think with the amount of chances that we had in that game I’m quite sure that if we were to play that game over again we’d win nine times out of 10.”
“That’s the game. The most important thing now is that we’ve got to recover from that. We’ve got to bounce back from that.” “If we’re able to take our goalscoring opportunities in our forthcoming games I’m sure some of the results we want to get.”
We hope Newcastle continue creating chances this Saturday, and after a full week’s training and some concentrated reflection this week on what went wrong last weekend, we have to think Newcastle will be a lot sharper in front of goal.
We hope Newcastle will be a lot sharper in front of goal.
There were 3 times in the Blackpool game, when Newcastle players were one-on-one with the goalkeeper, and just couldn’t put the ball in the net.
We’re looking for a good result on Saturday, and if Chris can also start Ben Arfa, and maybe introduce Cheick Tiote at some point during the game, we should have a much better chance of securing all 3 points on Saturday.
But the Newcastle performance in the final third of the pitch on Saturday, will have to be a lot better than last weekend, that’s for sure.
