Newcastle are doing their very best to try to get a big crowd at the game against Anzhi on Thursday night to roar on the lads, and tickets for the game have been cut to £15 for adults and £5 for concessions.
Yohan Cabaye scoring from free kick on Sunday
And certainly Yohan Cabaye is hoping for a big crowd against Anzhi, because the more fans we get at the game the better it will be for Newcastle, and it will enhance our chances of going through to the quarter finals.
This is what current captain Yohan Cabaye said today in the Evening Chronicle:
“We wanted to score a goal, but unfortunately Hatem missed the big chance.” “For the second leg, we know we must score goals.” “I think we will score goals – we have players who can score in this game.”
“We will be positive and we have confidence too. We will have the backing of our fans; that is important to us.” “We know there will be a big crowd at St James’s Park. We want to do well for them, and reach the quarter-finals.”
“That is our aim, and we will do everything to achieve this – we want to stay in this competition.” “We were happy with the result, but it’s the same scenario as last week. We need to win – it’s simple for us.”
“We can change our game-plan and type of play.” “They have a lot of quality on the pitch – we know that – and we have to play well as they have very good players.”
This is a big European game for the Magpies and the biggest for many years, and with Anzhi losing 2-0 to bottom club Mordovia Saransk on Sunday, we must have a decent chance of making it through.
Let us know if you think Newcastle will go through on Thursday.
