Local lad Steven Taylor has come out this morning and he’s yet another player who has now apologized for the terrible display against Cardiff City last Saturday, and said the lads let down the faithful Newcastle fans who traveled all the way to Cardiff, and had that stuff to watch from the Magpies.
Steven Taylor – by his look we guess he doesn’t like the new strip
But as usual our players have to learn as they go, and there are many valuable lessons to be learned in a game in which we were 3-0 down after only 26 minutes, and against a second division side to boot.
This is what Steven told the local press today:
“We’re very disappointed. We’re gutted with the result. We feel we let the fans down a little bit, but we’ve learnt a valuable lesson.” “It was a lesson we needed to learn.” “The main thing is to move on to Tottenham.”
“That’s the thing we’re really looking to now.” “We’ve got to get our heads back together and concentrate on that. That’s what we need.” “All over the pitch, we weren’t together, and that wasn’t a Newcastle performance.”
“We’re not going to take the fact that we didn’t have some key players as an excuse.” “We had a job to do, and we didn’t do it.” “But we’ll deal with it and learn from it, and put it right.”
“It doesn’t help that players are going away on international duty, and we won’t see them until Thursday or Friday.” “But the main thing is now to concentrate on what we have to do.” “We’ve got some big games coming up, and we’ve got to regroup.”
“We want a winning mentality at this football club.” “The lads are hurting – they’re gutted.”
Of course all will be forgiven and forgotten very quickly, if Newcastle can come back strongly and win our first game of the season against Spurs on Saturday at St. James’ Park in the late kick-off game.
It will be important to try to repeat what we did last season, when the lads were unbeaten for the first 11 games of the season, and we expect a much better display from Newcastle at St. James Park on Saturday – that’s the very least we expect.
A win would be fantastic!
Howay The Lads!!
