Yoan Gouffran has come out today in the local papers and said Newcastle will be going all out tonight at Goodison Park for a good result, to make up for that terrible result last time out in the league against Hull City, when the newly promoted minnows humbled Newcastle 3-2, and we gave away three very poor goals.
Yoan Gouffran – in good form at the moment
Yoan Gouffran is turning out to be an excellent signing for us in January, and he scored another great goal for Newcastle in the 2-0 home win against Leeds United last Wednesday night.
That win went a little way towards restoring some confidence in the Newcastle camp, but the game tonight at Everton is a very important one for Newcastle, and a win for us can see us go into 8th place in the league table – that’s where we need to be.
Yoan now has 5 goals in 22 appearances for Newcastle, and all his goals seems to have been vital ones for the club.
This is what the 27 year-old had to say today in the local papers:
“We have to show that last season was just a one-off.” “We will be aiming to finish as high up the Premier League as we want to.” “We have great players. We did last season too. There are a lot of internationals on the books here.”
“It’s about doing as well as we can, as well as we should do with the great players we have here.” “We’re definitely going away with the Hull game in the back of our minds.”
“It’s not forgotten.” “We have to lift our chins and press on.” ”We’ll go there and at least try to bring a point back.” “I don’t set targets in terms of numbers.” “This year there is a lot more in terms of competition for the strikers.”
“When the manager gives me my chance I have to give my all.” “I have to try to be as effective as I can.”
Gouffran has two goals this season and he’s joint top scorer with Ben Arfa and newly arrived Loic Remy, but one thing we need to do is to score more goals, and we have only 5 goals in five games in the Premier League, and that’s not enough. although we have scored four goals in our last two league games.
Yoan will probably not start tonight, but he will definitely get on for some time in the second half, and we hope he can add to his goal tally tonight.
A draw would be a decent result at Everton, but we really need a win to get our season back on track.
