Newcastle’s best player on Saturday was Loic Remy, who scored his first two goals for Newcastle, but that wasn’t enough unfortunately, and Newcastle shockingly went down 3-2 to Hull City at St. James’ Park, and that after we had won our previous two league games.
Loic Remy – first two Newcastle goals
It reminded us a bit of the 2-1 defeat three years ago against Hull, in the first game after Kevin Keegan had left the club, and it followed an International break.
Loic was pleased with his two goals, but not with the result, and he said the dressing room was quiet after the game – no kidding.
“I’m happy with my goals but the most important thing is to win the game and we didn’t do that. We made too many mistakes and that was why we lost.”
“We are very disappointed because at home it is important we win for the fans and for the confidence. We didn’t do that and that’s why the gaffer spoke to everyone afterwards to say we have to win at home.”
“It was quiet in the dressing room, it was the first game we have lost at home. Everyone knows we can deliver and win at home.”
“When we conceded the first goal we stopped playing, made mistakes, made wrong passes, so I don’t know why that happened. We have to change that.”
And not only that, but we had looked a very good side before we surprisingly conceded that first goal, but goals change games, and it certainly did on Saturday.
Consistency is what Newcastle need now, as Alan Pardew pointed out after the game, and we cannot afford to lose at home to sides like Hull City – that’s the type of game we have to win this season, if we are going to do well.
