Cheick Tiote was interviewed on the Newcastle web-site after the defeat last night at Arsenal.
Cheick Tiote – do you wanna dance
We have to say that Arsenal played well last night against Newcastle, and the Emirates could well be the hardest place to visit with Arsenal in such good form.
But Newcastle also showed their skill and their courage last night, and were unlucky not ot get the point when Arsenal got the winner so late in the game – in the 95th minute.
Cheick Tiote was a hero in the game at home to Arsenal just over a year ago in the amazing 4-4 draw, but he admitted last night was a different type of game.
This is what the Ivorian said after the game last night:
“”It was a different game today, and Arsenal played well.”
“We’re very disappointed because I think we defended well tonight. But we lost in the last minute and that’s that.”
“We lost tonight and we need to move on. The game is finished and now we have to think about winning the next game.”
“I think the next game is important,” “We’d drawn the last two games and tonight we lost, so I think we need to do everything to win the next game.”
“The dressing room is okay. We’re staying positive, because we didn’t deserve that. But that’s football.” “I think the most important thing is that we show our good character, be strong as a team and think about Sunday.”
Newcastle must now put this defeat behind them, and we can get some points out of the next games at home to Norwich City, away at West Brom and at home to Liverpool.
Norwich City is a game Newcastle can win, and with a sell-out crowd at St. James’ Park there’s no reason the lads cannot recover from this defeat, and get all 3 points.
Howay The Lads!!
