There’s no doubt that Newcastle face a tough game tomorrow afternoon at Molineaux, but what’s also clear is the Newcastle will go to win that game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Mick McCarthy – Wolves’ gritty manager
Wolves have lost their last three league games, but they even outplayed Liverpool last Saturday, when they were a little unlucky to go down 2-1 at Anfield, and they looked a very good side in that second half.
But Newcastle’s star is rising this season, as our lads have not lost in their first eight games of the season, and to say that is a bit of a surprise is a bit of an understatement.
Alan Pardew and the new players have done just fine so far this season, and Coloccini has slotted into the captaincy very well indeed, and has had a positive and quiet influence on the rest of the players.
Coloccini is a quiet and top class professional who is a great example to all the other players in the squad, and he has always given 100% for the Newcastle cause.
Colo represents the new face of Newcastle United this season, and we have a number of quiet and professional players these days at the club, but we also seem to have a good and improving side, and a stronger squad than last season.
Alan Pardew has overseen the great start to the season, but he also knows Newcastle are in a dangerous position if the players start to think they are a good team:
“As a manager you are always on your guard when it is looking like everything is rosy.” “We know our world doesn’t work like that.”
“For all I can report, which is my job on media day, is to say we are in good spirits and we have good form, we’re looking forward to the game.”
“Whenever I see Wolves beat somebody at home it never surprises me.” “They have beaten teams like Man United. They work so hard to pull things out of the hat and they are always in the game.”
“They push the players physically and you have to be on guard.” “You have to keep your discipline about you.”
Wolves are a solid and hard working team and Mick McCarthy epitomizes a good coach in that he gets the very best out of the players at his disposal.
What we will get in tomorrow’s game is an honest contest between two sides who will be going all out to win the game.
We have to hope that Newcastle can pull off their 4th league win of the season tomorrow, and if the lads can do that, then things will be rosy indeed in the Newcastle United garden, and we have two weeks during the International break, to bask in the glory of still being a top four side.
That cannot be bad!
