Yoan Gouffran after scoring against Tottenham
Newcastle have three important games to play in the next eight days – and they are all at home – and it starts with Fulham tomorrow, followed by Benfica on Thursday night and Sunderland a week tomorrow.
Gouffran has praised Alan Pardew for giving the lads tuition and motivation before a game:
“The big difference here is when the coach talks to us just before the game.” “He gives us excellent tuition. He gives us excellent motivation and more details about the opponent.”
“It is easier for us to understand the difference between the teams.” “We are always prepared for the game.” “We will be ready for the three important games coming up.”
“We know they are all important and what is at stake for our season.” “The coach always talks to us.” ” He pushes us to our very best.”. “There are big differences here to France.”
“In France during training the coaches stop the game when they talk to the individuals.” “When one player is being spoken to everybody has to stop.”
“Here the manager says what he needs to say and things flow on the training field.”
We’re going through a really bad patch at the moment, having lost our last three games, and tomorrow would be a good time to get only our 10th league win of this campaign, and we will have Yoan back to help us do that.
If we can get the three points tomorrow we’ll feel a whole lot better than we do at the moment – because we are simply still not safe from relegation – fact.
