I cannot remember too many times when there’s been an article on Newcastle United in the Wall Street Journal over here.
The title of the article is “Soccer’s Cut-Price Revolution – English Premier League Surprise Packet Newcastle Succeed With ‘Cheap’ French Imports”
It talks about how Newcastle have built their side over the last couple of years or so with cut price buys, mostly from the French League, and it’s a positive article on the club.
They also point out how Newcastle have slowly but surely replaced prominent top stars on huge salaries, with younger, lower wage players, who have something to prove on Tyneside.
Lee Clark, the successful Huddersfield manager, born and bred on Tyneside, and a former player and coach with Newcastle says these are exciting times for the Tyneside club.
Alan Pardew is also featured, and admits he doesn’t yet know how good his side are, and there are those who think Newcastle cannot keep up their good form.
So far Newcastle are doing just great, but we must keep going, and if we can then we can really surprise the lot of them this season.
A win tomorrow against Everton will help with that, and if our lads can keep it up there will be a lot more positive articles on Newcastle being written around the world.
That cannot be bad.
