Newcastle Can Get Something Out Of City On Sunday


Chris Hughton was at Eastlands last night to watch the Italian giants, Juventus, hold Manchester City to a 1-1 draw in the Europa Cup.

Chris Hughton – tough game coming up at Eastlands

One thing that we really like about Chris is that he’s a real coach, and he prepares the side for each of the games, and has a game plan whereby Newcastle can win each and every game.

And he even had one that worked so well at Stamford Bridge of all places, where the lads were not afraid to attack Chelsea, even after conceding a sloppy goal after just 6 minutes.

Chris talked to the Evening Chronicle today and knows City will be a tough side to beat:

“I was at the game last night and Manchester City were up against a very dogged Juventus side.”

“We know Manchester City are a very good side and if they want they can make changes for Sunday.” “You never know what type of team they can put out.”

“One thing is for sure, they can probably put two Premier League teams out if they wanted, that is how much quality they have in depth.”

It turns out that Newcastle have not won at Eastlands in their six games there, and Hughton knows only too it will be a difficult game.

But  hey, records are there to be broken, as the lads showed against both Chelsea and Everton, where we hadn’t won for 24 years and 9 years respectively.

If we haven’t won at Eastlands for six years then we are due a win – that’s the way we look at it.

Chris continued:

“No matter when you go to City it is always very difficult.” “They have a lot of top players, but we are not going to guess what type of team they will play.”

“We just have to make sure we prepare for the game properly and that we are up for the challenge of it.”  “As we know, all of the players who did not play last night are Premier League players.”

We want to see the Newcastle side play solid football on Sunday, in a game being televised live around the word, and play well in both halves, not just the first half, as they did last Sunday afternoon.

And it is more difficult for City to play a game a few days after their struggle with Juventus, so there are some advantages to the  Newcastle side, if they are up for it and ready to go all out on Sunday.
