Second Interview With Curtis Good – It Seems So Surreal


Curtis Good had an impressive game last night for a Newcastle eleven, who won 4-1 win over Gateshead at the International Stadium, and that’s impressive, given it was the lad’s first game for a while, as he waited for the transfer to come through,  and he arrived on Tyneside a full week ago.

Curtis Good – the move was finally done

The Magpies’ third summer signing of the season wasted no time in playing for Newcastle, and he will likely get a  run out in Holland on Saturday afternoon when Newcastle take on Den Haag at 5:00 pm.

Last night Good looked very steady at the back, and he is a good technical player with good skills on the ball, and of course he’s left footed, not unlike former Newcastle center-back Sebastien Bassong.

Good has spoken to the Evening Chronicle today, after giving his first interview on the Newcastle United web-site last night – here’s what the young Australian had to say:

“I watched the Premier League all of the time.” “So to be here as a Newcastle player in the black and white stripes – it is surreal almost.”

“Me and my mates watched it all the time back home. It is an unbelievable feeling to be here.” “It has dragged on for a while but it has happened. It’s about hard work now.”

“It was good to feel so welcome. I was here for two weeks and I didn’t know how it had went.”  “Then I was told they wanted me and it was a great feeling, I just couldn’t wait to get over here.”

“There were problems with visas and stuff like that, but we have got there in the end.”  “I came to Newcastle last Thursday so it has been some week.”  

“I couldn’t train when I first got here because everything hadn’t been pushed through.”  “However, everything has cleared now.”  “I hadn’t played since the end of the A-League season.”

“I used to be a central midfielder but once I grew to 6ft they put me at the back.”  “I’ve played under a Dutch coach who are pretty keen on playing from the back.”

 “It was a good feeling  last night,  and to get a 4-1 win in your first game.”  “I just want to help the team get as far as they can go. Hopefully that will be a bit further than last year”

“It was a relief because I haven’t played for a while. It was good to be out there again.”  “I’ve been told the sense of humor is the same as in Australia and I’ve been listening carefully.”

“Once I pick up on the accent hopefully I can join in.”

Good got a great reception last night from the Geordie faithful who were at the game – there were over 1,000 fans  at the game – and Curtis was very appreciative of that.

The youngster seems to have an excellent temperament, and he wasn’t fazed at all last season, his first in the A-League, when he became first choice at the Heart and played in 25 games.

And if this lad’s as good as we think he is, he could be a big success story on Tyneside – and maybe this season too.

What do you think?

    Ah man. Using cheap milk. Really should be better prepared than this. Surely they know milk is going to be needed to get this over the line. Clueless.

    TADS OUT!
