This Newcastle Player Deserves Enormous Credit

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.

    Awwww…bless his little cottons.

    “It’s a nice feeling to be loved, I think.”

    Heartbreaking stuff. Let’s give the wee lad some love this afternoon.

    Disclaimer: When I say “give the wee lad some love”, I mean in the form of cheering and support during the football game.

    Joking aside, was that all he said? In what context? He wasn’t walking towards the tyne bridge with a big rock or anything?

    Sorry, I’m going to get some coffee. The jokes aren’t too tasteful this morning.

    Match Day!

    Hasn’t this story been done before? Like 50 times?

    I like him, he’s come on great, would like to see a formation where we can accommodate him (and HBA). But this is old ground. Nothing new here.
