Chris Hughton, the Newcastle manager has rightly come out today and said there is no crisis at all at Newcastle United.
Chris Hughton – you tell them Chris!
Of course he’s absolutely right and the only thing is that the lads are going through a bad patch right now, but we’ll also have some good patches in the future, like we had with those three wins in a row before taking just one point from our last three games.
This is a season of consolidation for Newcastle, and we have to expect it to be an up and down season – and that’s just exactly what it’s been so far with some great wins and some terrible defeats.
This is what Chris Hughton told the Evening Chronicle today:
“There’s no crisis here. We are in a healthy position in the league table, which is something we must not lose sight of,”“Our expectations always were that it was going to be a tough season.”
“There are teams that are below us in the division, we know there’s going to be ups and downs and we know we’re going to go through periods where we’re not going to win games.”
“We might surprise a few people with results and have decent runs too. But the important thing is that when we go through a period that is not what we want, then people have to support us – which they have done.”
“The crowd have felt that. There’s been games where they would have been disappointed with the result but their reaction has been very good.” “These are the times when you need as much support as possible.”
Of course things are a little worrying right now at Newcastle with the fans, with just one point from the last 9 available, but we’ll have to trust that we’ll have some good runs too this season.
And if we can do that then we’ll achieve the number one goal this season, which is to stay in the Premier League for next season, that’s all we want.
