There are a number of success stories at Newcastle this season, and it;’s a refreshing change form last season, when we struggled mightily against relegation but stayed up, and now with the same players we look a much better side, and even that’s a bit of an understatement.
Vurnon Anita – great action shot of the Dutchman
And one player who is now showing the form that had Newcastle interested in him is Dutch International Vurnon Anita, who is pushing Cheick Tiote to his best form ever at Newcastle, and not even that but Cheick hasn’t picked up a caution for six games, and he doesn;t want o be suspended and give Vurnon a chance to start.
That’s competition for you, and it’s doing Newcastle a world of good this season.
This is what 24 year-old Vurnon has told the local press today:
“It’s a nice feeling to be loved, I think.” “I will keep on working hard to show what I can do to help the team.”
It’s hardly surprising that Newcastle fans have shown their support and love for the 5’6″ Dutchman, since he had a tough first season, but the lad’s shown his commitment and character to come back so well this season.
And not only that, but when he’s in the side, he’s played really well – and would be an automatic starter at a lot of other Premier League clubs.
Vurnon has already appeared 49 times for the Magpies, and it’s looking like he could have a sparkling career on Tyneside.
