If football teams wants to be successful, then there’s one thing they have to become, and that’s consistent, and that means they have to play well against the lesser teams in football as well as the top teams.
Fabricio Coloccini congratulates Yoan Gouffran on Saturday
Yoan had just scored Newcastle’s second goal
And that seems exactly what Newcastle are trying to do this season, and while the performance against Norwich City was not great on Saturday, the lads got the job done to get us our third league win in a row.
And that’s what captain Fabricio Coloccini talks about today in the local press – playing well against every team:
“Sometimes we have not done well against teams who are down near the bottom of the table. Maybe we have thought it was going to be easy. That is dangerous.”
“Against big teams your motivation and concentration are always high, but in these matches we need to be at the same level.” “We can have a much better season than last year.”
“We have shown we can compete with the best teams in the Premier League, but now it is up to us to keep our performances at that level.”
“I have been here five years and we always have great games against the big teams but we have to play the same against every side we come up against.”
“We all want the same, Newcastle to be playing well and the club back in the top 10.”
Well Newcastle are in the top ten right now, and we have moved up to 8th place and we are 2 points out of 4th place and 4 points out of second place – unbelievable.
All that matters right now is that Newcastle single mindedly concentrate on how to get three points out of a good West Brom side on Saturday at St. James’ Park.
And then after that – how to get 3 points at Swansea City a week tomorrow, and then at Manchester United the following Saturday.
Those are tough games coming up, but no tougher than the three games we have gained nine points from.
