Given how little Newcastle paid for Yoan Gouffran last January, maybe as little as £2M, the Frenchman could be the bargain buy of the year, and he’s forced his way back into the starting line up, and gives the Newcastle side speed, mobility, and Yoan can also score goals – he’s been a fantastic buy for the side.
Yoan Gouffran – excellent acquisition for Newcastle
And not only that, but when Yoan joined the club, he talked about Newcastle as though it was the best club on earth, and that was nice to hear, and he’s the type of player who gives 100% all the time on the pitch.
So it’s hardly surprising that Newcastle fans have quickly taken to the 27 year-old former Caen and Bordeaux player.
Yoan has made it very clear that he’s happy when he plays, and he had this to say in the local papers today:
“I haven’t played all the games – sometimes I am on the bench,” “As a player, you are only happy if you play.” “When I play, I want to score and play well.”
“Sometimes I play as a striker, and sometimes I play as a number 10 or number 11.” “It’s not a problem. I want to play and give the best I can.” “It will be a big game,” “We are ready to play.”
“It was a bad game last season and on Saturday, we want to change the result for the fans.” “Last year it was a bad day for every player. This year we want to win.” “We want to show our quality this time and win the game.”
Yoan has now played a total 24 times for Newcastle with five goals, and most of those goals have been important ones for the side, and this season he has 9 appearances with two goals.
Yoan was one of the three up front in our last game at Cardiff who played extremely well, and we hope our lads remember what happened last time we met Liverpool, and make up for it to the fans.
It’s a good opportunity tomorrow for Newcastle to show what they are made of, and that we can indeed give top sides a game this season.
Howay The Lads!!
