Sammy Ameobi had a dream sub appearance last night, and looked very good out on the left wing, and then he scored a terrific winner for the Magpies with his right foot.
Sammy Ameobi – it was a great experience
Sammy looks like he may be the real thing and at only 19 years old, he still has lots of time to improve, but don’t be surprised if Shola’s younger brother gets a run-out on Sunday afternoon against Fulham, because of his great play where he was able to open up the Scunthorpe defense.
And don’t forget before he scored Sammy had made two great runs down the left wing and centered the ball across the goal only for Dan Gosling and then Leon Best to miss the easiest of chances.
Where’s that new striker?
This is what an exhilarated Sammy told the Newcastle press today:
“It was a great experience.” “It was my first Carling Cup game, and to score the winner was a dream come true really.”
“Hopefully, I can build on that.” “The manager just asked me to get on the ball, attack and cause havoc.” “It was a great free-kick from Ryan and it was good for me to get the winning goal.”
“I just cut on to my left foot and I thought I had to hit it.” “You never know what can happen.” “As soon as I hit it, I thought it was going in and when it went in it was a great feeling.”
“It was a great goal to score.” “I could barely breathe on the floor – they were all just piling on top of me!” “There is a great team spirit and hopefully we can take this winning mentality into the Fulham game.”
“I just want to do my best every chance I get and work my hardest.” “I just want to make a difference when I come on, and it was good for the boss to see what I can do.”
After Sammy’s performance last night he will get more chances, and we look forward to see him get a sub appearance in the second half on Sunday afternoon, and a win against Fulham would make it three wins in a row, so that’s what we’re hoping for on Sunday.
Fulham played in the Ukraine last night and were beaten 1-0 at Dnipro, but still advanced in the Europa Cup, so Newcastle may be a little tired on Sunday afternoon, but there again, Fulham had a lot more travelling to do for their game.
We will expect a Newcastle win on Sunday, in a game that is again being televised around the world, and if we get the win, things will be buzzing again on Tyneside, despite the negativity around the place, because Joey Barton may be leaving the club..
Howay The Lads!!
