We’ve had a number of emails asking me if I could put out some good news about Newcastle - for a change.
Cheick Tiote - Newcastle favorite back tomorrow
And we understand that, because over the last 5 days, it’s all been bad news, and another mini-crisis at the club – but we stress mini.
The Newcastle club is a great football club, and one big reason for that, known around the world we may add, is that the club have the best fans in the land.
That’s always been true, and today there is some good news for Newcastle fans on two fronts.
Wait for it!
One is that Newcastle favorite Cheick Tiote returns to play against Arsenal tomorrow, following his 3 game suspension for being sent off at Stevenage.
And the second is that the 24 year-old midfielder has today talked about the unbelievable support the Newcastle fans give their team.
Tiote was not in London on Wednesday night, but watched the disappointing display of the Newcastle side on TV, and he talked today about how excited he is to be returning to play for Newcastle United:
“I can’t wait to get back in action, and if selected, play in front of another crowd of 50,000 fantastic supporters,”
“I saw the game on Wednesday, and it was obviously a disappointing result, but we had done well in the last four league games, and we aim to put on another good performance for our fans.”
“Our supporters are unbelievable, the noise and the passion is incredible, and we would all love to give them something to cheer about come the end of the game.”
“We’ve beaten Arsenal once this season, so as a group of players we know it’s something we’re capable of doing again.”
It’s no mystery why this lad is a huge favorite on Tyneside.
But we’d also mention players like Barton, Coloccini, Gutierrez, Barton, Enrique, Simpson, Harper and others at the club, who are proud to wear the famous black and white shirt of Newcastle United.
And that cannot be all bad.
