One of the good attributes of Chris Hughton’s character, is that he never gets carries away with things.
Chris Hughton – never gets carried away with things
That’s either on the upside after a 6-0 win, or on the downside when the relegation favorites beat Newcastle at home 2-0, in the Magpies’ first home defeat for 16 months. That’s also a lot different from some specific Newcastle blog sites. 😀
After last week’s shock 2-0 defeat against Blackpool, Newcastle travel to Everton this Saturday, hoping to get over what was a sizable blip in their season so far for the Magpies.
Newcastle didn’t play all that bad on Saturday, especially in the second half, but if they are to get anything out of the game on Saturday, they will need to put away their chances when they arrive.
Everton are a solid top eight club, and manager David Moyes has done a fantastic job for them since he signed on some 8 years ago, after managing Preston North End for 4 seasons.
But Everton haven’t made a good start to this season, with just two draws from their four league games, and that might just offer Newcastle some chance of points, although Goodison has never been a good hunting ground for Newcastle lately.
Mike Williamson has been one of Newcastle’s best players this season, and he is looking forward to the game, and he revealed today that Hughton is a very balanced manager, when things are either going very well or very badly – which come to think of it – they always are at Newcastle. 😀
Mike said today:
“That’s one of the great things about our manager. He doesn’t come into the dressing room after a win jumping around and patting everyone on the back.”
“But he doesn’t get too down and knock people’s confidence after a defeat. He’s got a great balance to his character; that is what we need as a team.”
Lee Ryder of the Evening Chronicle pointed out on his blog, after the terrible 2-0 defeat against Blackpool last Saturday, that it would just be like Newcastle to go to Everton and win, and we have to say we’re hoping for another shock result on Saturday , but this time on the upside.
The game is being televised live around the world, and we’ll have out fingers crossed at 3:00 pm Saturday afternoon. It’s a huge opportunity for Newcastle to make up for their huge let-down at home against Blackpool.
Howay The Lads!!
