Newcastle Is One Of The Most Difficult Matches Of The Season


Not everything football managers say before games are necessarily true or even accurate, as they tend to  play mind games with each other, in order to try to gain an advantage over the other side.

Jose Mourinho – Newcastle a very difficult game

And the manager always says the opponents are a very good side, just in case their players are over-confident and might think it’s an easy game – there’s no place for over-confidence in the Premier League.

And Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho in his interviews before this game this afternoon at St. James’ Park, has said the game at Newcastle is always one of the most difficult games of the season, so obviously he hasn’t been watching our side recently.

This is what Sir Bobby Robson’s protegé said about the game today:

“We go to Newcastle and we know that we’ve got one of the most difficult matches in the whole season.”  “It’s very, very difficult for us to play at St. James’ – but I want to try.”

 “It’s important to go in the right direction. To go in the right direction is to play the way we have been playing.”  “We are improving, we feel that we are improving. The quality of our game is good.”

“The results in this moment, in this last month, are fantastic because we won every match in every competition in October (note  – just in case people missed that).”

“We had to play Schalke away, we had to play Arsenal away, we had to play Man City at home. We had very difficult matches but we won every match in October.”

We have just about convinced ourselves that we’ll get nothing out of this game today, so we’ll be surprised and very happy if we even get a point.

How’s that for some positive (negative?) psychology?

    Boring repetitive drivel.

    Before anyone assumes I am talking about Ed’s articles, I’m of course referring to Ian’s ramblings. .

    Must dash, have to help out in the campaign to rid our club of Ashley. As for the match, I’ll go 2-0 Chelsea.

    I agree with stuart no 9, mr ashley is really throwing his dummy out of the pram now and he is just getting worse, but strike while the iron is hot big marches will give it nationwide coverage and thats what this club needs, some of the serious damage that this bloke has done not only to our great club and its fans but to the city and the people of newcastle,surely now there cannot be any ashley lovers left surly not now.

    You bang on about your march constantly whilst Ian tries to stay positive constantly so what’s the difference pal. You can’t be repetitive and then accuse someone of being repetitive.
    For what it’s worth I like seeing a bit of positivity. Got to try and have some joy before the misery that will ensue after the match
