One player who has settled in quickly at Newcastle is Yoan Gouffran, and the French U21 International had another good game at Loftus Road yesterday.
Newcastle players celebrate going ahead 2-1 yesterday after 35 minutes
And Yoan Gouffran has quickly become a favorite on Tyneside and his third goal for the club yesterday was monumental – it was the winner – and it keeps us in the Premier League, and we’ll pick up that massive £60M next season – and the club will become even more financially stable.
Yoan has played 14 times for the club since arriving in January, and he had this to say today about the fantastic win yesterday:
“This is so important for the players, the manager and of course our brilliant fans.” “After the game everybody was happy.”
“Now we need to finish the season well against Arsenal.” “Then we can really start looking towards next year. This is so important to the club.”
“The players have worked very hard to win this match.” “They were strong and worked hard to get the points.” “We’re happy to win the game. I think we deserved it.”
“Of course I was happy to score, especially as it won the game and the result was so important to the club.” “It was a good moment.” “The game was very difficult. The last few minutes were difficult, but we held on to win. We are there now.”
Yoan took his goal brilliantly and it was great work from Jonas Gutierrez as he challenged goalkeeper Robert Green for the ball, after a bad pass back from Jose Bosingwa.
The ball fell to Yoan who hit it first time into the back of the net, and fans couldn’t believe how easy it was for Newcastle to score that goal must have been a huge relief for all the five Frenchmen who joined us in January.
Debuchy, Yanga-Mbiwa, Sissoko, Haidara and Yoan must be delighted that we are safe – because they didn’t join Newcastle to be relegated.
All five of them will be better players next season, after their fiery baptism in the Premier League over the last four months.
The intense criticism, our massive crowds, our brilliant fans – the passion that is Newcastle United – they will have experienced none of this in their homeland.
Welcome to Newcastle and the Geordie Nation.
