Vurnon Anita was delighted with his goal last night, that brought Newcastle back to 2-1 after going down to two poor goals conceded early in the game, and with another goal from Shola Ameobi, we were able to come out of Belgium with a valuable point.

Vurnon showed all his technique and skill as he hit the dropping ball on the volley and he couldn’t have placed it more accurately, as it went flying into the goal, giving the Brugge goalkeeper no chance at all.
The 23-year-old has now played the last two full games for Newcastle, and there are definite signs that Anita is settling in at Newcastle, and he was our Man of the Match last night with 38% of the vote so far.
Vurnon talked about his first goal for Newcastle:
“I hit the ball very well – it came in the air, and I just hit it.” “I felt that I hit the ball very well. I hit it, and watched it go in. It was my first goal for Newcastle, so I’m happy with that.”
“It went in, and the second goal from Shola was also a great goal.” “It’s important that we did it as a team. We go home with one point.” “We’re not there yet, so we must keep on working, and see what happens in the next game.”
“We were 2-0 down, and that’s not good.” “We made two mistakes, and they scored two goals.” “But we came back with two goals, and that’s a compliment for the team.” “We worked hard and go home with a point.”
“The goal and the result was for the fans who travelled so far.” “A win against Maritimo, and we’re through.”
Anita has now played 11 times for the Newcastle first team with one goal this season, and he is likely to keep his place at right back against West Ham on Sunday afternoon at St. James” Park, , which is a game we have to win to start climbing that league table.
And we’ll have to start winning more games – in our 17 games so far this season in all competitions, we have 7 draws.
We need to start turning those draws into wins, if we are climb the league table – and hopefully we can start that on Sunday against the Hammers.
