If Newcastle can get a win at Villa Park tomorrow, then most Newcastle fans will think we’ve made a decent start in the first two games of the season with 3 points, and there’s the possibility of getting another win at home to Crystal Palace next Saturday.
Daryl Janmaat – one of our signings this summer
However if we are beaten that will be two defeats in a row and those results would not be what we all wanted to see.
But from what we’ve seen so far since the summer, Newcastle have signed some good players – maybe some of them are great players in the making, so it has been a good transfer window for the club.
Alan Pardew seems upbeat already this season, and he had this to say today:
“We’re in good shape, but after the good performance against Manchester City we need to get a couple of good results on the board to show it,”
“The feeling in the local media, the press and our fans is one of optimism. That’s felt on the training ground as well. It’s felt by my staff and some of my staff have been here for 25 years.”
“There’s a genuine feeling we’ve got a decent side here and I think we need a couple of results under our belt and then see how quickly it grows.”
“There are a lot of new players though. Someone said to me, are we carrying a bit of negative history from last season, but only half the team were playing, the other 50 per cent are new.”
“We are kind of half carrying it and half not. The arrival of so many new signings really helps lift the players who were here last year.”
And we are hoping that Dutch international midfielder Siem De Jong can make his Premier League debut against Villa tomorrow, after recovering from his calf injury, and if he does play he will be the 7th player who has made his competitive debut for Newcastle in the first two games.
Things could be on the up at Newcastle.
We hope things are on the up at Newcastle.
