Newcastle gained a lot of friends yesterday by both their display and the result against a top Chelsea side, and a lot of the compliments came from the Chelsea manager himself.
It’s just a wild guess but we don’t think Jose was too happy yesterday
Jose already said that Newcastle deserved the win, because they fought for it and wanted it more than his players – and that the best team won.
But even in other comments there are some compliments in there for Newcastle United.
Here’s an interview an angry Jose gave after the game:
“The result is a consequence of one team not being there.” “We lacked everything. I didn’t like my team today.” “There was no real pressure on the opposition. We were too soft with and without the ball.”
“I’ve never won here. You come here to face a fantastic crowd and you have to have a certain mentality – we didn’t have it.” “I didn’t like the performance. We deserved to lose – Newcastle wanted the game more than us.”
“They fought more than us. If someone had to win, it was Newcastle. We were not aggressive with the ball – we let the game go.” “I pass it on to my players all the time, but I was smelling at half-time what was going to happen.”
Jose admitted that he was exaggerating a little bit for effect, but it’s true that Newcastle wanted to win more than the London side – and quite honestly we were shocked at just how good Newcastle played in that second half yesterday.
It’s what Newcastle fans live for – a great result and a fantastic performance against a top top side, and we got that yesterday.
And are we over-reacting – of course we are.
Howay The Lads!!
