Ben Arfa is just dying to play for Newcastle in every game.
Ben Arfa – wants to play every game now
The Frenchman’s appearances on Tuesday night was only the 5th for Newcastle for the 24 year-old, and it’s hardly surprising he now wants to get as many games for Newcastle as he can.
Ben Arfa also has said his ankle feels just fine after his exploits on Tuesday night, and he has even made the statement that he feels born again on Tyneside:
“I don’t feel any pain at all. I can’t wait to be back at St James’ among our fans. I was very touched by their support, all through the year and on Tuesday”
“They were always behind me and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.” “Now, I want to give them back on the pitch what they gave me off it, times 1000. It’s like I am born again.”
Ben Arfa is very likely to make an appearance for Newcastle at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon, when Newcastle take on Blackburn Rovers, who played well last weekend to beat a poor looking Arsenal side 4-3, for their first win of the season.
Arsenal scored five goals last Saturday, with two own goals, and lost due to their defense, which looked as hopeless as it was last season, and you have to feel a little sorry for the Arsenal fans.
Blackburn are now above Arsenal in the league in 5th bottom place on goal difference, with 4 points from 5 games, and in their two away games in the league, Blackburn have drawn one and lost one.
Newcastle can definitely get a win on Saturday, and if they can do that then Newcastle fans will be flying high, with the Magpies still in the top four in the league.
Here’s hoping, and of course Ben Arfa can help with that mission on Saturday – big time.
